Monster Art Doll Sketches

Two art journal pages inspired by a challenge on Mixed Media Art Friends...just brainstorming ideas. Haven't made any of these yet. Of course, the actual creation usually turns out differently than the original sketch.

I really love Maurice Sendak's classic story "Where The Wild Things Are" and he does great monsters!

"And now," Max said, "let the wild rumpus start!"

I probably won't do a Max doll or green monster doll...I will probably make the pumpkin man paper doll. If you have been making Halloween inspired art and showing it on your blog, please leave a comment so I can check it out.


  1. they are adorable!!!
    i like the pumkin doll too...do that one first!

  2. I was not going to join that challenge on MMA, but after seeing how creative you are, I'm inspired to make a Halloween paper doll.

    Your sketches are so wonderful. They would make great rubber stamps, too.


  3. They are great ideas.
    Did you know that there were Max and monster dolls produced by the publishers? (I used to be a children's librarian)

  4. They are great sketches.
    Did you know that the publishers sold Max and monster dolls a few years ago? (I used to be a children's Librarian) I too love that book.
