mother's day monsters

There had been a surplus of creative activity recently in Lance's little world, for the past week he has been working vigorously to produce new pieces very radiply. Perhaps he has run out of toys he likes and is just creating his own, but other's speculate it's for the attention and praise he recieves from this online blog/gallery

I had been visiting home from work for the summer when this happened and no sooner did I wait to work on the blog.

When I had noticed him working on a piece he was putting the finishing touches on a little monster that had a blue jewel embeded(glued) in place that appeared to be his belly. I watched as Lance colored his arms and drew additional designs on the monster's chest and with the swiftness of a fox he began working on the next part.

He started with a folded piece of plain white computer printer paper he so eagerly grabbed from the printer in the first spark of inspiration. He then drew (in black crayon) two trees and special symbols on the trees which appear to be magical ensignias (probably corresponding to the monster's stomach jewel) after finishing the detail of bark and tree face he drew the tops of the trees and added color to the landscape. He recovered a folded note card out from somewhere and placed it in front of the trees he had standing now (since he folded the paper in half before drawing it, to allow it to stand alone) and placed his little monster in front of the trees using the note card to hold the monster up because the monster was only 2-D and couldn't stand alone.

it's called Dig T (not sure how to say it)
