I AM THE EGG MAN. FROM HELL!! Back in 1987, Bandai Japan produced the Egg Monsters (or Tamagoras) which were odd toys that had eggs transforming into the likes of Dracula, a werewolf, Jason, the Creature and a disturbingly fat Mummy. There were also skeletons, dinosaurs and some Ultra-Man Godzilla guys. I managed to get Jason and the Werewolf. But I really wanted the Gill Man. I especially loved the artwork on the boxes.

@katariinakosunen starting from the gorgeous color combination you used in this illustration along with the cross hatch technique! I love this man ♡

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015 I lost my grandfather. These past few years, he had suffered from Alzheimer’s disease and my biggest fear was not to lose him one day, my biggest fear was that he would forget me one day. Thankfully, he never did forget me. Thankfully, my last words to him were that I loved him, and that I would see him when I got back from my trip to LA. And it didn’t matter to me how many time he would forget instantly when I said was coming back and ask me to repeat myself, because I would repeat myself any time he asked me, no matter how many times he asked. He took a turn for the worst while I was away And that in itself makes me believe he held on until I got home and waited for me to come say my final goodbye. I will always remember this artistic, strong, and loving goofball of a man as my grandfather. I will always cherish his artwork, his cameras and all the sentimental values that come with them, as before he passed they were handed down to me knowing that I would appreciate them and all that they can do as much as he did. I’m happy that I was able to spend as much time with him as possible before he left us. Having dinner, going for walks or simply just stopping by. My grandparents were inseparable. They only had each other. They grew up together. Survived a world war together. Travelled by boat from England to start a life here together. Bought their first and last home here in Canada, together. So, everyone please spend time with your elders. We are young, we are busy and we are very social, but for some grandparents - family is all they’ve got left. They might understand their grandchildren’s busy and fast life style, but it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be able to be a part of it. Even a phone call to see how they’re doing. They either out live their friends or grow too old to remember them. I can’t say that I feel like I didn’t have enough time with my grandad but I do wish I could have more and I’ll wish that every day of my life. I love you, Grandad. RIP. | #vsco #VSCOcam
