I had a moment of doubt and very nearly ripped the monster out and started another landscape during the beginning of the upper jaw. But I need to live up to the zebra butt.
Awhile back, I went to an art show for some fiber association and saw a beautiful tapestry of a zebra’s butt. It really was a beautiful zebra butt, but seriously a butt? None of the other art work in the show was ironic, most of it were quilts depicting landscapes. Looking back I don’t think the zebra butt was meant to be funny or ironic. This zebra butt captured my imagination and still has it. I had so wanted to do some monsters or dragons or something and kept deciding against it. Happy landscapes! I say I don’t draw cartoons but I have lots of sketches of monsters. Back to the zebra butt, it released me somehow. If that artist could do such a lovely zebra butt, I could somehow find a way to make scary monsters. Yes, I know this one isn’t scary. I am working up to the scary bit.
I should take a moment to thank Elaine. She gave me a bunch of old yarn and most of the yarn for the monster is from her. THANK YOU!!
