This is my entree for the MAMA Scared Stiff contest.
I had a lot of monsters when I was a kid. The monster in the closet, the monster under the bed, the monster at the end of a dark hallway, but the worst monster of all was the monster under the basement stairs. Going up the stairs was easy (you could run faster up them, and you could see what was under them) but going down was a little harder. I was always afraid of something crabbing my ankles and, as Stephen King put it, "unzip your guts!"
Tools: Faber Castell art pens on smooth bristol.
Only reference used was those wonderful childhood memories.
