Illustration Friday: Monster
This is Sydney. He's a telepathic chameleon space horse. He'd never thought of himself as a monster until the other horses and zebras that he encountered on Earth started to call him one. Sydney has found it impossible to blend in and sadly left the company of the equine herds he'd hoped would welcome him. Now he lives with me, where he is appreciated for his uniqueness. He is mostly happy, but I know that he still feels lonely for his own kind.
Sydney is a little shy and declined to pose for me. But he kindly consented to my drawing him from a model. This drawing was therefore made from a pipecleaner, aluminum foil, wooden bead and "scooby string" model that I made of Sydney when I first spied him in our garden. Drawn with marker pens. 25.3.06
