Good morning. Please say Hello to Monster No.18—my personal favorite so far. I like this guy so much, I may have to put him in the book. I don’t even know what question to start with. What’s his name? How old is he? Is he a he? Or a she? What’s his job? What’s under that robe? What’s his favorite TV show? Where’s he going next? What do you think? The fact that you’re playing all these little question-and-answer games with me every day and coming up with all kinds of fun stuff is just one more reason why 344 LOVES YOU

    Gorgeous! I envy your talent …

    His name is Crustaceous Phil. He lives in the basement apartment of a five-story walk-up, not far from Times Square. He doesn’t mind the dangers of living in a dark basement with poor ventilation and no light. His favorite TV show is Futurama.

    My favorite thing about these drawings is that once you spray the ink, I can totally see where the face or the eyes can go, and what the monster could look like, but then you turn the paper and do something totally different that I wasn’t expecting. It’s fun.

    Good Lord. That’s no monster—that’s my Uncle Jaques. He’s 61, lives in northern Minnesota, has a house painting business, chain smokes, and drinks Old Milwaukee. I have no idea what his favorite tv show is, but he would probably enjoy “Trick My Truck” on CMT. Not sure why he’s wearing that silly robe, though. Maybe his coveralls are the dryer.

    You guys crack me up! What a scary thought to have this guy wading on the other end of your gene pool, Lemony. And he’s French? Well… Heavens to Betsy! And Sam, I think you’re right. I think I’ve seen him around Times Square. Giuliani tried to scare him away for a while, but now he’s back and better than ever. XXX LIVE LIVE LIVE SQUID SQUID SQUID

    HAHA I must say he reminds me of Zoidberg from Futurama… a little. Also, I wasnt expecting you to draw what you did. When I first saw you draw the body, I thought the ink sprays would have been his hair, and he would have been hunched over… like a mopey little monster. But I was pleasantly suprised. If i were to guess I’d say he was a postal worker…

    Hi Amy. He does look a little bit like a cousin of Zoidberg’s, doesn’t he? That’s probably why I like him so much. Things that look like things I already love are so comforting to the brain. The new stuff sometimes feels less cozy. Well, let it be a salute to the good doctor. (Production note: I made this one with ink from my very own ink pouch.)

    he’s an old-school surgeon! they used to wear black rubber gloves in like the 1940’s… i think.

    I’m not sure he’s wearing a robe, it looks more like a trench coat…one that flashers wear. Could he be a flasher??? Maybe he’s getting ready to streak through the streets and is looking up to make sure that it won’t rain.
    Is he wearing platforms?

    I was half way through reading the comments when i realised i’d been looking at him all wrong! I thought it was a monster eating a person….
    am i the only one that saw that? hmm.

    Hi Kit! Interesting view of Dr. 18… I hadn’t looked at him that way, but i see what you mean. Nice perspective!
