INKTOBER 52 2023 Day #34: VAMPIRE.

Are you enjoying all these Plunger Monkey pen and ink illustrations? Would you like to see a whole lot more of them, all nicely packaged in book form? Then you’re in luck! You can get a copy of my art book Inklings, which collects 3 years of these pen and ink illustrations! Just follow this link:

“I almost went with a vampiric plunger for this one, but decided to draw another Muppet. Something I never stopped to think about until working on this image is that I don’t think Sesame Street ever addresses the fact that The Count is a vampire. I mean, I assume he’s a vampire based on his appearance, but maybe I’m just being prejudiced. But, if appearances aren’t deceiving…are all of the inhabitants of Sesame Street in danger, or just the Muppets? How effective would felt fangs be? Do Muppets even have blood, or a blood equivalent? We have seen some of them take some serious beatings, especially on ‘The Muppet Show’, but I don’t recall ever seeing blood, just bandages and splints and things.

…am I overthinking this?

Also, The Count’s cape collar thingy is very squid-like…”
