Honey sweet talks her parents into letting her watch all of the scary movies.
Don’t judge. Honey loves monsters. She wants to sing songs to Dracula, tuck in Frankenstein’s monster before bed, and give zombies makeovers! Her favourite game is Attack of the HAND!!!!!!
Book characters are, in essence, a conglomerate of words and letters collected by an author to be packaged neatly into paper and ink. Yet, SOMEHOW, we manage to fall head-over-heels in love with them as if they were like, real people? Its a cosmic mystery.
Anyhoodle-doodle, I am devoting the oh-so-very merry month of May to drawing my top nostalgic literary crushes in all their dreamy glory (or lack thereof–am I the only one who liked Frankenstein’s Monster? Just me? Oh…nevermind). Most of these characters I really liked as a kid, and some of them–well, what can I say–I am still quite fond of. Some squee-s never die.
Feel free to join in the fun! Don’t worry if drawing isn’t your cup of tea. Maybe write a blog post, tweet a blurb, share an photo. Heck, you could even…commission…an artist…to draw one for you. *ahem*
