I recently came across one of the many handmade cards my grandfather illustrated for us, on this occasion it was when me & my brother were struck down with chicken pox when I was about 7.

The monster is chasing all the germs away..

I love that he detailed the creature with such a furious expression and intimidating intensity in its character to show how powerful this dragon-like beast is in order to drive the horrible germs back into their cave… Which I’m sure in turn, helped me and my brother beat the illness quickly.

And my love and fascination with monsters began..
