I was recently asked (months ago) to participate in a gallery show at Bay Arts by my friend Erin Schechtman. The general theme of the "Old Friends Gallery Show" was to reference a beloved childrens' book. I immediately knew I wanted to do something for Grover in The Monster At The End Of This Book, I just had no idea what. Having planned on doing it at the last minute, like all of my projects, I had plenty of time to ponder my approach. The more I "pondered" the less I thought about the story and more about the title. "Monster At The End Of This Book" taken out of context sounds much more like a classic pulp novel than a children's book.
And that's sort of what happened. Here is my Pulp/Film Noire version of Sesame Street. Work in Progress at my personal site : NeedYourDisease.com
