Fridge Drawings of a
A couple weeks before the party I borrowed
of the Corn from Katie and there are several scenes involving a
drawing violent scenes. I walked past the fridge one day and put
two and two together...
The fridge was originally
pictures Dani's nephews drew when they were in preschool. This is
a step in a much darker direction.
Lawnmower running over three
cats buried up
to their necks. This is an urban legend I (and probably you)
as a kid. I know it's false because how are you going to hold a
cat still long enough to be buried? Really!
Dead guy. Generic murder
First image I did in this series.
Dead bird. I wanted
It's not the cruelty-to-animals thing I was looking for, but it's just
weird since no cause is immediately evident.
Close-up of scales. Not
a kid would draw, but whatever.
Creepy clown was
obviously inspired by Tim
Curry in Stephen King's It and my ex-girlfriend Katherine's
of clowns in general.
Rows of bloody teeth. I
wanted to draw
a monster, but I didn't know what a kid would imagine. Then I
(s)he'd probably just focus on/emphasize the most salient features.
Anthropomorphic cat with its
head cut off.
Partially a continuation of the cruelty to animals/pre-serial killer
and partially an (at the time) unconscious response on my part toward
who anthropomorphize their pets, cats in particular.
At the time I did these, we didn't even have kids. However, Stan
was conceived a few months later, so for our party in 2010, I signed
name to the bottom of each, even though he's obviously still a little
young to be this demented.
