Those are excellent!

The ones with umbrellas particularly remind me of Edward Gorey.

And a touch of Miyazaki too.

This is an excellent illustration of an immutable point of ethics, so often missed: Whatever their circumstances, those who can draw monsterdrawings, should draw monsterdrawings.

I would love to see this guy do a film. Miyazaki meets Tim Burton? The contrast between the cartoonish oversized monsters and the delicate victorian children is a really striking. Creepy but really appealing.

This is fantastic! I just love that he says "monsterdrawings" as one word. It's a good word.

I find the monsterdrawings adorable, but the ghost kiddies really freak me out.

Some Tove Jansson in the mix as well, I'd warrant.
