ART: Inner Monsters

Your Inner Monster…

Inner Monsters don’t necessarily look like “real” monsters. These particular creatures are part of that constant chatter going on in the background of our own minds, shaping our unique view of the world.

They can appear in a variety of forms, from human, animal, monster-like, even as plants! Most of us… ahem… keep our inner beasties tucked “safely” in the closet, hoping the won’t decide to reveal themselves at inopportune times, causing all manner of embarrassing moments, like sudden extreme shyness, unexplained crying jags, overwhelming crankiness, or laughing out loud for no apparent reason, among others.  Sound familiar?

The solution is (drum roll please…) to MEET your inner monsters, SEEK to understand them, EMBRACE them as yours, and then LEARN about yourself through them. Bring them out of your personal inner-verse and set them free!

ART: Monster Alphabet

It should be no surprise I suppose, but a nasty fight broke out in my art studio between three of the Elite Guardian Monsters this morning. You see, the letters “N” and “R” were still available after my initial request for help with the Monster Alphabet painting that I was beginning. Three monsters…two remaining letters. That spells Trouble with a capital “T”! I discovered the hard way, that monsters can become quite competitive, let alone combative, when something (or someone) is up for grabs.

MonsterAlphabet-fight1 MonsterAlphabet-fight3

Once the name calling began, while I stood frozen with a deer-in-the-headlights look, my nice, neat studio became a battleground (of monster proportions). Grumbles, whines, hoots and hollers were exchanged amid stomping feet and flying feathers as other monsters joined in the fray. I barely made it to safety by leaping sideways, as the insults about mothers started whizzing past my tender ears. It took several hours just to calm them down. Fortunately, I remembered that monsters forget how to argue while eating warm quizzelberry pies, which were placed around the edges of the room to distract them. A monster mediator (me, unfortunately) was then called over to talk things out.

Let me just say that I have heard nasty words exchanged between angry people before, but monster word fights are just awful with all of the additional hissing, growling and teeth gnashing. I have learned that one should, never, NEVER insult a monster’s mother!! I cannot emphasize that enough. I am ashamed to admit that I cowered pathetically behind my painting easel while waiting for things to quiet down.

Fortunately, it all worked out and I was able to bring peace back to my now tattered and torn studio. I had no choice but to promise the left-out monster that he would be the first in line when I started work on my Monster Numbers paintings. I can’t (ahem) wait…

Monsters shamelessly flaunt themselves in public!

Yes, I suppose it was inevitable. Monsters out of control, again… Despite my discussions — make that warnings — they just couldn’t seem to help themselves.

2012 Chestnut Hill Art Fair

The morning arrived in blustery gray. Clouds raced by, chasing one another to some unknown destination. Rain spattered our windshield, challenging us to believe the sun would dare reveal herself. Not the promising start we had hoped for while preparing for my one and only art fair this year.

The monsters, trapped beneath their cellophane wrapping, whined and moaned as only monsters can do. Irritating in the extreme. They wished to be released from their printed paper prisons, set free to flee and fly into the stormy sky — to unleash their wild monster selves with abandon.

Alas, I would not, could not let them go. They were needed this particular day to be on their best behavior. To stay within their printed pages, if only for a while. Rain or shine, the show must go on – since today was the rain date of the week before.

Amid the muffled screams and protestations, my husband packed them all into the van. Tent, art, display panels – the usual fair paraphernalia – was sorted and squeezed; manipulated and manhandled into submission. I watched in awe as I whispered continued prayers for good weather.

By the time we arrived at our designated “spot on the street”, the wind had decided to join in the fun. Gentle breezes became chilly blasts. Enticing whiffs of aromatic soaps-for-sale, turned into whirlwinds of mixed scent – some not quite as welcome. While the packaged monsters giggled at our plight, the two of us managed to set up the tent, struggling to beat the clock before the fair’s official start time at 10am.
Waves of adults, children and dogs paraded up and down the avenue. Laughter and chatter drifted by. The sun came out, the weather cleared, and I finally began to relax. All was well.

Then, to my ears, all manner of snorts, hoots, whistles and toots caught my attention. “How annoying!” I thought, as I leaned forward to see who might be responsible for all that mindless blather! Slowly, to my growing horror, I realized the sounds were coming from within my own tent!! Friendly faces, strolling past, turned cherry red as nasty names were hollered and teasing taunts were flung into the passing public. Innocent glances in my direction morphed into angry glares. My cheeks burned with shame.

I dove inside my tent, wishing there was a door, and pleaded with the monsters (grinning from ear to ear) to behave themselves for goodness sake!! Nothing worked of course, and panic blossomed within me. Fortunately for all, my brave husband stepped in to calm me down, and after a few moments of deep breathing, an idea struck.

Gathering my wits, I began whispering into each monsters ear. Within several minutes the melodrama had ceased. Monsters apparently, have rather large egos. Once I told them the fair was in their honor, that people had come from miles around just to gaze upon their likenesses… well, all became well… again.

The Monsters Go to School

Back in early March, I had the pleasure of being contacted by DeeDee Potter, an amazing elementary school art teacher in Tennessee. She mentioned that she was putting together a Power Point presentation to inspire and motivate her students. Her subject matter for this particular project was Monsters — my specialty! Her interest was encouraging her students to stretch their imaginations as well as explore different techniques of production.

Monsters are often traditionally viewed as gruesome, scary, nasty creatures. However, by thinking outside the box, and expanding the boundaries of the creative process, some could actually be “found” who were beneficial, protective, and even pleasant to be around!

With a little help from my monsters (who were quite eager to participate, of course) and one of my Monster Alphabet posters as added inspiration, she and her class worked for 3 weeks and designed some terrific monsters! They also created an ink blow to make a monster; a paper fold name design; and an organic string design to get the creative juices flowing! They worked to complete the project by finishing it with a writing sample to pull in the writing skills.

I am truly honored to have played a small role in this explosion of creative discovery and am in awe of the students and their artistic creations!! Thank you Ms. Potter for inviting me along. I wish I had an art teacher like you when I was in elementary school.

You and your class have inspired me!!
