Fantastic image!

Very different, I enjoy this very much. The different textures in this catch my eye.

One could write a novel around this drawing. Well done and favorite for this humble viewer.

Congrats on your sale!

Congratulations on your sale, Alex. I'll have to look at some more of your work! I don't get a 'ghastly' feeling from this at all. More like "Puff the Magic Dragon" - the child is perfectly at ease talking with his new friend. Liked

Congrats on your sale!


Very cool! Excellent monster!

How lovely work!

Yes, any young child that can climb to the top of a precarious rooftop could be a force to be reckoned with! The monster looks a little beaten down by life (or perhaps he just has bad posture due to his particular musculature?), so it's not too much to imagine that the child is capable of getting the better of him. Love this imaginative image that puts the viewer in the position of creating a story, which is always fun! f/v

Beautiful work!

Alex, you have created a real ambivalence in this. Maybe the monster is benevolent? Maybe the child can blow him to pieces by pressing a button? Because I love happy endings, I'll imagine them playing together and having a great friendship. :-)) v/f Patricia.

Congrats on your sale!!

Cool, congrats on your sale!

Such skill, and what a story this image tells! F/V

Love, love, love it! v/f

Congratulations Alex! Pure magic realism! It's seem that he's playing a kind of game with joystick. You are so creative! F/V!

Awesome! ;)

I bet you that a lot of people can relate in their childhood to this compostion.

Very cool! Congrats on your sale!
