•Today we are going to start working with creative writing and book illustrations.
•You need 8 ½ X 11 copy paper. Read the following description (on the next slide) of the monster in MY closet and draw him from my description.
Draw the monster large enough to see and use details. Pay careful attention to the description try to match this with your drawing as close as possible. Use color as necessary.
•I opened the door and there he was, the monster in MY closet. He stared at me with two red eyes the size of plump cherry tomatoes with beady, black pupils. His round, basketball shaped head was dominated by an orange, potato like nose and a large mouth that took up the lower half of his head. He was grinning wickedly now, showing his razor sharp teeth, and even though he was smiling, his furrowed brow told me it was not friendly. His head was covered in thick purple fur and seemed to teeter on a long, too thin neck that was at least as long as his head was tall. His round, purple fur covered body was twice as big as his head and rested on oversized, hairless, green feet that jutted out at opposite angles from his body. His hands dangled from long, skinny arms and his knuckles dragged the floor, showing long, cruel talons for fingernails.
