This piece was for a Micro Gallery exhibit held at DreamWorks Animation on July 25 – September 5, 2013. All proceeds went to the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The theme was Childhood & Nostalgia and I took the opportunity to illustrate one of my favorite childhood memories: the cold monster. My mother invented the cold monster because she always had a hard time getting me inside the house when I was out playing. She would yell to me that she could see the cold monster behind me and if I didn’t get inside fast enough I would get a cold. Terrified, I would run back to my house as fast as I could. Thanks, Mom.
