Snoutferatu by CaroleHumphreys Snoutferatu by CaroleHumphreys
Firstly, he's too cute to go in the macabre & horror section.

Now that's been said, onto the illustration. I produced this little fellow to accompany a poem of the same title by Rhys Hughes. This poem can be found in his collection, 'In praise of ridicule'. Published by D-Press. If you'd like a copy, note me or D

In case you're wondering what he is, he's a vampire aardvark.

Ooh, an aardvark! I love the way you've captured the folds of their skin, as most people tend to make them either too fuzzy, or completely smooth without wrinkles. Actually, I like the entire composition of this piece, too. I think I'll have to fav. it. :D

And I thought I'd seen everything! :D
Funny how the creature that lists as the first word
in the english dictionary is the one drawing I've never seen -
and add to that, 'vampirized'!

Hey, why not? I like the sound of a zombie mongoose. Mmm .. and a psychtic sealion and a kleptomaniac koala - this could drag on.

Ha ha! Thanks. I guess if he crept up behind you in a dark alley, your first instinct would be to laugh.
