Acknowledging the pun, but still taking it literally, I used the characters from Nickelodeon’s “Aaahh! Real Monsters!” 90s cartoon and portrayed them as the classic Universal movie “reel” monsters from the movies Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolfman and The Creature from the Black Lagoon.
I drew Dorothy Gale happening upon a row of scarecrows in the corn field. One from the MGM musical, one from Batman, another from the books, and the rest just in shadows.
On the opposite page of the sketchbook for Day 15, I extended the cornfield to surround a drive-in movie theater that is currently under attack form some sort of giant reptile, the likes of which would probably be playing on the screen.
I combined these into one drawing, as moon by itself if pretty dull. Also, I am a bit of a pedant with some things and calling the “creature” that Dr. Frankenstein brought to life in the story “Frankenstein” just bugs me and I made sure to put the doctor center stage in the drawing, or at least sharing it with the moon, and the creature’s arm just coming into the foreground.
This is the first and last one-page combination of days, from now on they will all be two-page spreads (and to save time, two-day topics covered in singular posts).
