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!

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!

Wonderful !!!

Love, love, love it! v/f

Very nice...fantastic beautiful excellent....:)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!

Favorite! This is a really cool piece!

GREAT! Congratulations.

Congrats on your sale!

Perfect Winter scene

Nice cards. Some of the top in the box had minor imperfections from shipping, but nothing to complain about. Overall, I would purchase again.

These are fun note cards for the techie, audiophile or Ham Radio Operators.

Artist's Description

One of my favorite things to create is a child with a horrible monster. What I really try to get at with images like this is contrast: innocent with ghastly. But I always like to throw a twist on it...is the monster REALLY the ghastly one? I really like when the viewer participates, as I love hearing things that I never intended for the piece, it gives me ideas for new ones;)

About Alex Ruiz

Alex Ruiz

The visions of Alex Ruiz range from dark and disturbing, all the way to vomit inducing cuteness and hilarity. In his paintings, the creatures of his thoughts crawl off the page and transplant themselves into the unsuspecting brain, hopefully taking residence there as well. Born in the Cuevas Negras( the Black Caves) of Hermosillo, Mexico, Alex began engraving murals on the cavern walls, and soon after, the walls of family and friends' baby nurseries. To this day, he continues to explore the roads and depths of the heart and mind, especially the odd and strange ones, and bury the findings within his art. Alex is now a freelance concept artist/illustrator living in Los Angeles, California, lending his talents to the film, television, and...
