For this drawing I was inspired by a few things..Alice in Wonderland,.the movie “don’t be afraid of the dark”—-the creepy hands of those tooth “fairies” ready to snatch at you—-and a Japanese artist (who’s name evades me”) who reminded me of illustrations I used to create with intricate detail ( for some reason, I decided to abandon that style). Well, I decided to revisit that old style and I created something kind of somber..not quite sure what my intention was but it was something along the lines of being swallowed up —-innocence being lost…etc..
Sleep Tight. These little nocturnal imps creep into bedrooms at night and abduct sleeping babes—- so they may feed upon them. In the child’s stead, they leave a doppelgänger that is but the shell of the child that once was. This doppelgänger is one of the imps in disguise. Once it has implanted itself into its new home, it slowly starts to feed on the inhabitants of the household until there is no one left.
This is a little project I started on, at the beginning of this year but it kind of was discontinued. It is about a little Nosferatu a.k.a, Nosfi, who was adopted by an abominable showman named Gübbo (see images 7,8) . The little comic above is a depiction of a peculiar habit little Nosfi has of starring with its dark little eyes, causing a sense of disconcertment within those who are the object of its stare. The other characters within the comic are: Horace ( the bird- like creature) and Clive (the cat-like one). They find little Nosfi to be a rather odd one indeed. This is “The Littlest Nosferatu”.
