Monster Project United – The Monkey Monster by Joshua (and me)

Joshua’s drawing for his monster:


Joshua explaining his monster:

My Version of Joshua’s Monster (which if you didn’t watch the video he describes as being a monkey wrapped in toilet paper with his head on fire and a stop watch on his tail).


Because of my time at IMC I am experimenting with the idea of laying things out for book covers. This seemed like the perfect thing to conduct such an experiment with. So same image with some type added.


And while I was playing…..


Photoshop is such a fun toy.

And if you are so inclined, here is the time-lapse video of me making my interpretation of Joshua’s monster.

I am looking forward to playing with the concept of book covers more in the future. If you know anyone who needs a book cover, let me know. I would like to put together a portfolio of them.

  1. I think you nailed this one!!

  2. Thank you! I was pretty pleased with this one. I was deeply saddened when I found out this morning that they are abandoning this. They said they are going to have new monsters again August 5th – but it sounds like they are going back to having it be an invitation only thing. There are other people on Instagram that are doing kid’s monster re-draws – but none of them have the kids explain their story on the monster. I really enjoy that part.
