Media has been showing me giant spiders all week—thankfully just in TV and movies. #31days31monsters #halloween #spider #spiders #monster #monsters #whiteboard #whiteboardart #sketch #sketches #sketching #aragog #shelob #drwho #doctorwho #horror #horrorart #scifi #kumonga #kaiju
So... sometimes your art for the day happens while waiting for your burger. Stingy Jack. #31days31monsters #halloween #halloweenart #sketch #sketches #sketching #pumpkin #pumpkins #jackolantern #monstagram #monsters #monster #legends
A hobgoblin—in this instance, of my little mind. #31days31monsters #halloween #halloweenart #whiteboard #whiteboardart #sketch #sketches #sketching #monstagram #goblin
Just a quick sketch today. Used Lo-Fi filter but was sorely tempted to choose Rise given the content. #31days31monsters #31daysofhalloween #monster #monsters #sketch #sketches #sketching #whiteboard #whiteboardart #halloween #halloweenart #monstagram #swamp #swampmonster
My take on the Balrog from Tolkien’s Fellowship of The Ring. #31days31monsters #lotr #lordoftherings #halloween #monster #monsters #sketch #sketching #sketches #whiteboard #whiteboardart #hobbit
You could caption this one as The Blob or another more generic protoplasmic entity. I’d call it “work email.” #31days31monsters #monsters #monster #halloween #sketch #sketches #sketching #whiteboard #whiteboardart #halloweenart #office
After a couple days of savage symbiotes, I figured it was time for something a little more whimsical. #31days31monsters #halloween #halloweenart #sketch #sketching #sketches #whiteboard #whiteboardart #ghost #ghosts #trickortreat #october

Not a traditional take on Dracula—but a likeness closer to that of the historical figure Vlad the Impaler. #halloween #halloweenart #whiteboard #whiteboardart #sketching #sketch #sketches #dracula #vladtheimpaler #vampire #vampires #31days31monsters
Rewatched “Cabin in The Woods” last night—so yeah, had to try a merperson. ;) owlcowlandblaster.blogspot.com #31days31monsters #monster #monsters #halloween #mermaid #sketch #sketching #sketches #whiteboard #whiteboardart #halloweenart
This one’s a little obscure, I know, but the story of the Flatwoods Monster has always intrigued me even though it’s less famous than the nearby Mothman sightings. May have go to their annual festival one of these years. #flatwoodsmonster #flatwoods #westvirginia #braxtoncounty #alien #aliens #monster #monsters #halloween #halloweenart #whiteboardart #whiteboard #sketch #sketches #sketching #31days31monsters
Day 3 of #31days31monsters—which I didn’t undertake as part of #inktober though, in retrospect, I clearly should have. Does dry erase marker count as “ink?” Hmmm. Have to think on that. #halloween #sketching #sketch #sketches #whiteboard #whiteboardart #halloweenart #vampire #vampires #officeart
Second day, second monster. This year, I’m intending as much as possible to just create—without reference. (We’ll see how that goes.) #31days31monsters #halloween #halloweenart #sketching #sketch #sketches #monster #monsters #frankenstein #october
A continuation of an art project I started on my personal Instagram account last year—pre-blog. Hello, October. owlcowlandblaster.blogspot.com #halloween #halloweenart #whiteboardart #sketch #sketches #sketching #monster #monsters #werewolf #31days31monsters
Presenting monster No. 31—The King of Monsters, Godzilla! Happy Halloween to all, and to all a good fright. ;) #31days31monsters #godzilla #kaiju
Today’s monster is the unfortunate Wilfred Glendon, title character from Universal Pictures’ “Werewolf of London.” Glendon’s tale (1935) is actually more contemporary to Universal’s Dracula and Frankenstein movies (1931) than The Wolf Man (1941). But alas, the Mount Rushmore of Hollywood monsters only really has room for one lycanthrope—and Lon Chaney Jr got that nod. (And I guess that Warren Zevon never spotted Henry Hull walking with The Queen...) #31days31monsters #halloween #universalmonsters #werewolfoflondon #wolfman #werewolves
I realize no one is going to recognize this one, but it’s a dire wraith from perhaps my favorite 80’s comic—ROM, Spaceknight. A deep cut, I know, but pretty Halloweeny. Created to promote a soon forgotten toy, the early issues of the comic are set in a small WV coal patch where a cyborg soldier arrives in pursuit of shape-changing aliens (the dire wraiths). Creepy and dark, it predates ET and the X-Files but explores themes found in both. #31days31monsters #romspaceknight
Not exactly a picture you’d find in the D&D Monster Manual, but this Beholder is hoping to catch a ride to Hawkins, Indiana. Anyone going his way? #strangerthings #dungeonsanddragons #readyformycloseupmrduffer #31days31monsters
Rancor monsters make the worst paper dolls. ;) #31days31monsters #starwars #rancormonster #returnofthejedi #worstpaperdollever
Rodan always makes me think of Boscov’s. Odd, I know. But the first time I saw it was sitting on the steps leading up to customer service, overlooking a bank of TVs for sale. I was waiting for my mom and I only saw part—maybe the last 15-20 minutes. I’ve seen the whole movie numerous times since then—and recommend the very creepy (and slightly gory) mine scenes at the beginning even though the title character takes a while to appear—but can’t help but connect the experience to that department store. Memory is a weird thing. #31days31monsters #kaiju #rodanmonsterofthesky #boscovs #halloween
So how do you caption a sketch that includes The Silence from Dr Who and one of The Gentlemen from the fan-favorite “Hush” episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer? See No Evil, Hear No Evil. ;) #31days31monsters #doctorwho #buffy #buffythevampireslayer
Shelob the spider from Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings—as well as many nightmares, I’m sure. (Not Aragog from Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets, as my youngest was quick to ask. But a reasonable guess.) #31days31monsters #shelob #tolkien #lotr #imnotaragog
Liked the idea here more than the execution. In the end, Homer looks a bit more resolute than I’d intended. (I wanted nervous, but his brows turned out more irritated.) I guess he’s the hero of this particular treehouse tale. #31days31monsters #simpsons #treehouseofhorror
“SMORES!?!” No. Just thought everyone might like some more pictures. (Ugh—I know, that was bad even for a dad joke.) This is basically tomorrow’s monster delivered early, as I expect it to be a hectic weekend. (This guy knows what I’m talking about.) And yes, he does count as a monster and not a ghost—specifically the avatar of a  Lovecraftian extra dimensional alien invader that styles itself a god. #31days31monsters #gozerthegozerian #ghostbusters #staypuft #tellhimaboutthetwinkie
You might mistake this fella for a Cylon, but it’s really Maximilian—the killer robot from the much-maligned Disney film The Black Hole. I actually remember liking it as a kid—I remember having several of the action figures—but it did have a bit of a weird, trippy ending. Still, good spooky Halloween fare. (Think Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea meets Event Horizon.) #31days31monsters #notacylon #toasters #disneyhalloween #theblackhole
I remember watching a lot of kaiju movies on Saturday afternoons when I was a kid—I think on WOR Channel 9 out of NYC and whatever Channel 17 was in Philadelphia. Good times. #gamera #kaiju #31days31monsters #halloween
This is actually the first picture I drew this season, but I wasn’t sure I liked it enough to include. Today, I relented. #dementor #harrypotter #31days31monsters #isitactuallyaboggart
The Uruk Hai (Orcs) from Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings. #31days31monsters #lotr #tolkien
Every time I think I’m improving, I get a result like this. (Sigh.) That said, these guys are so obscure that they might not even count as a “deep cut.” Remember the Maelstrom ride at Epcot? This three-headed troll was my favorite part of that soon-to-be-forgotten journey into Nordic folklore. (Yeah, I know—“Let it go...”) Again, sigh. #31days31monsters #epcot #disneyhalloween
What’s that you say? When you think of kaiju, you don’t normally think of Denmark? Then let me introduce you to the nightmare-fueled world of Reptilicus. #31days31monsters #kaiju #mst3k #reptilicus
Pennywise from Stephen King’s “It.” (Tim Curry version.) #31days31monsters #stephenking #stephenkingsit
Hi! My name is Jason and I’m going to be your monster today. I’m very outdoorsy and like to meet new people. Swipe right? #31days31monsters #tgif #fridaythe13th
The Demogorgon from Netflix’s Stranger Things. So looking forward to the Season 2 premiere later this month. #31days31monsters #strangerthings #demogorgon
Anyone care to guess the identity of tomorrow’s monster? Here’s a sneak peek. #31days31monsters
Chalk definitely isn’t my favorite medium—too hard to achieve different line thicknesses, the mess, etc. But I suppose this guy turned out okay. #31days31monsters #johncarpentersthething
Oh, look! Carl has made a friend. ;) One of my all-time favorite episodes of Kolchak the Night Stalker was The Spanish Moss Murders, but I think that Marvel’s Man-Thing makes a great stand-in for that other swamp monster. #31days31monsters #kolchakthenightstalker #marvel #makeminemarvel
Today’s monster is a triffid from the classic dystopian novel Day of The Triffids. As I mentioned in a tweet over the weekend, you can apparently see the whole 1963 film on YouTube. (Think “The Walking Dead” with man-eating plants.) #31days31monsters #dayofthetriffids
I know this is my take on the classic Spooky Space Kook from Scooby Doo. So why do I feel like I better count my shadows? #31days31monsters #scoobywho #doctorwho #scoobydoo
The Fly #31days31monsters
I know Mike Bondra already shared a wide view of the ID monster from Forbidden Planet yesterday, but I had some additional angles worth including. So he’s still my Day 6 submission.  #31days31monsters #forbiddenplanet
Took a few liberties with The Kraken. Wanted to render the 80’s version, but found this one made for a better sketch—at least with the addition of some tentacles. #31days31monsters
For the Doctor Who fans in my life, a Weeping Angel. #31days31monsters #doctorwho
The Mummy—specifically, Boris Karloff as The Mummy. #31days31monsters

#31days31monsters Day 10 is a label I made for @nearmintbeard ! It's inspired by the old Tales to Astonish Groot cover! #comics #beard #beardoil
