When I was a kid, Bigfoot creeped me out. Only, I didn’t imagine the beast as a lumbering pre-Neaderthal. Instead, it was more like a giant spider-monkey.
He would swing from tree to tree as I sat helplessly in a school-bus on the way to the nearest downhill skiing hills one evening per week in the winter. For some reason, he wasn’t such a pest once we got to the ‘resort’ even though the creepy forest was now much closer. Breaking ones neck on the seemingly treacherous slopes was a much more immediate danger.
This all came back to me as I set out to make a drawing of this mythical creature. It was supposed to be a part of a larger project, but this drawing ended up being mostly just for fun.
The picture is intended to capture the creepiness and the lurking doom of the long-limbed tormentor of bus riders. Mission accomplished?
Next time: a few more bigfoot pictures. Oooh, scary!
