Back at the end of September I made some fun cardboard tube monsters for the wonderful folks at Parents Magazine. The issue is finally out, so if you are a subscriber, turn to page 184 of the April issue to see the new Make It column featuring my “Moody Monsters”.
It started with this sketch…
Which turned into these…
And then finally into these…
Here’s the cover shot, in case you want to take a look :)
If you are an iPad user, starting on March 15th the download will be available and includes a fun video tutorial on how to make these! :)
