Synopsis: How to Draw Monsters!

(No humans were harmed in the making of this book.)

Looking for a way to unleash your inner beast? It's easy with these wonderfully weird and relatively harmless creatures.

Head inside the Monster Factory to:

   • Draw 43 fun and feisty monsters step by step!
   • Learn to draw different eyes, mouths, horns, legs and feet, and then mix them up to invent your very own, unique and scary creations.
   • Create four breeds of monsters, including freestyle, alien, mashups and robots.
   • Spot monster-making inspiration all around you, from animals and insects to jelly beans and toasters.
Inside are some of the most likeable (and freaky) fiends you'll ever encounter--from Stephanie, who just wants to hug, to Patience, the bug-eating rock, to Peeperpillar, a cute caterpillar-parakeet. They come from the quirky minds of three professional monster artists, here to share their secret techniques and character-building tips. With a fun, anything-goes approach to monster-making, they show you how to bring to life the monsters running wild in your own imagination.
