Before I begin, you need to read the two page, color story from my latest Halo and Sprocket book. If you don't own Natural Creatures, shame on you. You can read it below, nonetheless...
When I first created the last page, I created a standard Happy Face and added scanned-in human flesh to it. My reaction was just a, "Aw, it looks like happy orange. It's not creepy enough."
So, I decided to add real teeth and a few blackheads. "Better," I thought, "But I can still tolerate looking at it..."
Next I added more zits, more realistic eyes, and floated his head. My family and friends couldn't stand to look at it. Finally! I was done.
