The challenge this week was ‘monster’, so I illustrated a shadow person with red eyes coming out of the closet. Stories of the red-eyed shadow people often seem to involve an open closet door and pulling the covers over your head. (Probably the most sensible of moves at a time like that.)
Actually, I have some vague dreamish memories of when I was a kid and seeing white light coming out of my closet in the middle of the night. I don’t have any shadow people memories/dreams from my childhood, but I remember a ‘witch’ flying outside my window and tense memories of wanting the ‘little people’ (about a foot high) to go away. In my head, I created my own personal versions of the Super Friends, that were also a foot tall, to protect me – I think it worked, too – heh.
