Very Minor Demon by ursulav Very Minor Demon by ursulav
The Very Minor Demon held out hope that one day he would be allowed to tempt things--beetles, maybe, or lizards, possibly even mice--but none of his superiors seemed to think he'd be very good at it.

-------------

Was looking at some poppet art the other day, and that got me fooling with minimalist face designs...how much do you need before it registers as "cute," rather than "Get it the hell away before it eats my brain" and so forth. Of course the problem with such designs is that they all start to look alike, and you wind up at the intersection of Hello Kitty and a Shmoo and the forest things from Princess Mononoke and start to make yourself neurotic trying to figure out how to make a distinctive character design from something that doesn't actually have a FACE, and eventually you just need a shot of whiskey and a good lie-down. It probably still looks like something else, but I give up.

5 x 10, mixed media on watercolor paper, original is hopefully come to Technicon with me, but is for sale, prints available for $10 plus shipping. Send a note or visit [link] for details!
