I think Lionel had braces! Look at that toothy grin. It was Patty Lakinsmith's Green Meanies (you have to Google Patty - her work is fabulous) that have been the inspiration for my monsters. Making monsters is fun as long as they are the friendly ones like in Monster's, Inc. and I really can't get enough of them. It won't be long and I'll be doing more but for now this is Lionel and I just listed him on Etsy.
