Peter H. Brothers is Satan

Apparently, back in the dim, dark 1970s—during the most shadowy of my shadowy youthful years—I sent fellow daikaiju enthusiast/author Pete Brothers some original pen-and-ink drawings of Japanese monsters. Never expecting these ancient cave renderings to resurface, I was taken aback when he posted copies of a couple of them on Facebook. My word! I never!

Evidently, I took myself to be a far better artist than I really was, but it's kind of a hoot seeing these again—especially since I don't remember doing the specific drawings in the first place. Click on the pics to enlarge (if you're feeling masochistic).

Mark, those aren't bad drawings, especially the Varan one. Me likes 'em!

Dave -- No kidding. It's turned me on to some fun, odd, and disturbing things. ;)

Armand -- Thanks for that. I can only look at them and cringe, although I certainly recollect what a great time I had when I was drawing such critters, day in and day out....
