So at one point I took a break from drawing a bunch of things for other people and doodled something for myself. And then it turned into a bit more than a doodle.
This is the monster called Ladroni from the website, Strangers.Atrocityland, which is a fascinating sort of bestiary for these creatures called Strangers. It’s all really interesting and there are a TON of them that have really amazing designs and little blurbs of information but this one… this one stuck with me.
I have a pretty severe irrational fear for sick and sickness and other people GETTING sick. So why I would be interested in this Stranger at all is just kind of morbid and weird. When I saw it and read it’s blurb I immediately was horrified.
I tried portraying my horror over illness and people getting sick in the image. The Ladroni is twisted in on itself in agony, it’s body writhing. Two of it’s hands are reaching up to clutch at it’s face and throat in horror as it gets sick. Most distressing of all is the physical contact that is being made with the vomit, it’s hand reached out even to allow it to come in contact with it.
