It was my birthday the other day and Michelle Weaver, an art friend of mine asked me what she should draw on my birthday card this year. I responded something like, "Can you draw me a monster? But not a gross or scary monster. I don't want it to be hyper cute either. Can you draw me a monster that is only slightly threatening but still kind of benign. Like a monster that would only beat you up if you got on it's nerves. Can you do that?"
As it turns out, she can do that.
