For the Big Book of Bizzaro illustrations, I settled on the roughs I thought were the most effective and ran with them.
I really like the pin up sort of feel that this maid has. And how the squid gets to be abstract shapes, as it gets deeper.
I asked the author what sort of weapons this character uses to fight these honey flying squid. Instead of giving me an answer Gary Vincent just sent me the story. I chose to depict her with her weaponized Vagina dentate.
It might sound weird to most people but it is a pretty normal day when I say something like “the drawing of the werewolf fighting the giant squid was the most standard sort of thing I drew for this project”.
