Happy Halloween, everybody! May it be a spooky and outstanding day for everyone.
So I was having trouble deciding what monster would be worthy of posting for the last day of the countdown (Halloween Day itself), when I remembered a drawing I did a while back. It’s not my best work, but it is one of my favorite monsters and a sketch I’ve been meaning to put up anyways.
Meet the Dullahan, the spine-whip wielding headless horseman from Irish folklore, inspiration of that decapitated horror that haunted dear Ichabod Crane and the rest of Sleepy Hollow. A fitting spirit for such a day as today.

So I was looking through the monsters I’ve drawn recently and trying to decide what I should share next. Maybe it’s a month old and on notebook paper–*GASP!*–however I felt I had to share this somewhat rough take on the Greek hellhound we all know and love. My cousin asked me to draw him Cerberus, one of his favorite monsters from the Percy Jackson books. I said sure, but only if I could put a little McGannon flare in there.
Which I did.
Ladies and gents, I give you, “KERBERUS“.

I love monsters. And so, with this recent surge of monster-related searches leading to Wyvern’s Peak, I’m happy to say there will be a few more monster/folklore related posts (than usual), and perhaps a new weekly feature to add to the blog.
As I’m finishing up a new round of rewrites this week, I’ll just leave you with a monster of my own mind…”The Multi“. Be sure to check in next week, but don’t stick around too long today, aye?
ps. If you’ve always wanted to know something about an obscure or even popular monster from folklore, mythology, modern media, etc., feel free to leave comments or contact me. I’d love to share what I know and would be more than willing to do some research on some new monsters, if I haven’t heard of them already. Seeya next week!
