Scary

This week's Illustration Friday is..."Scary"
'Tis the season ;)
Here's a little darling I conjured up recently (you may have seen him float by on the
children's literature magazine's site, Underneath the Juniper Tree).
He prefers the bald-headed baby variety ;)

  1. Hello Elizabeth:
    Scary by name and scary by nature. He really does succeed in being exceedingly alarming and with those deep set eyes, long fingers and dome shaped head comes close to translating into a skeleton.

  4. In this case it is hard to say which one is more scary, the doll or the doll eater ;-) Even the typography scares me, well done!

  7. I feel so badly for that little doll!

    How are you doing, my love? Thank you so much for your incredible comments on nearly every back post, last week! I soaked them up.

    I hope today is a day of particular inspiration to you, kindred.

    Love,

  10. He sure is scary! But the weird thing is: I find bald-headed baby-dolls also scary....

  12. Oh my! But I agree with Celine, not sure which one is scarier the doll eater or the doll! LOL

  13. Yikes! You really dug deep into your psyche for this one. But I've got news for doll eater; in horror pics the doll usually bites back!

  14. Yikes is right! Happy All Hallows Eve.

  17. Hey, well this has resonance. It has the hallmarks of Nosferatu, that emotive halo around it that makes it more than just a bunch of pencil strokes on a page, there's some kind of archetypical fear here that you have tapped into. Maybe it's the teeth, the yawning chasm of the mouth, the fear we human's have of being eaten...?

  18. Okay...I'm thoroughly scared now!!! Which is actually perfect, given what day it is!
    xo J~

  19. A very creepy illustration, I think because your 'doll' is a baby doll and not a Barbie! Great work.

  22. Now that is REALLY creepy! I can hardly stand to look at it and think about those poor innocent dolls (to say nothing of the children!). I think this is the scariest picture I've seen on this topic.

  23. whhhoooo he is a scary chap, lock up your dolls I say! Even though he is mean and its mean - he has tons of character in his face. I love it in a scary kind of way...if you know what I mean.

  24. Heisann!

    Uff da, as the Norwegians say in USA!
    This is an unpleasant situation for all dolls.
    Scary!
    Have a nice time off ;:OD)

  25. Oh, my goodness! Speaking of coincidences and the photography forum....I'll be right back!;-) (I have to just put a link to this!)

  26. This is funny, I know a Nosferatu who would eat dolls for breakfast if he could!;)

  27. Wonderful. The vampire looks just like Klaus Kinski, and the doll looks just like one of mine (but it has the head on)....
