FRECKLEYFACE said...

I see a red hot purply passionate lover I mean monster coming to get me. Oops freudian slip.

johnnynorms said...

I saw the siamese dragons, each of which thinks itself more monstrous than the other.

ps. Your last MMM is one of my favourites (so far)

Sinclair said...

That's cool!

isay said...

Two nasty scary twin witches cackling!

Great idea, BTW!

Thanks for all the compliments! Glad you've been playing. So far we've got:

johnnynorms

Katili

tony sarrecchia

Butterfly (was it a monstrous one?):

merlinprincesse

No-one's seen what I see yet... maybe you could try looking at it upsidedown? But it is MUCH scarier!

Liz Jones said...

Great monster idea!! I was thinking butterflies and unicorns,which probably says I'm a seven year old girl at heart. Or something.

Nan said...

Great idea... but all I can come up with is a brilliant butterfly. Sorry, no monsters for me. (And I tried so hard!)

Wandering Coyote said...

I must have failed the test because I don't see any monsters!

Alexa Brett said...

Wonderful idea...Something for everyone!

modroom said...

I see one friendly monster who wants to join in, the colours are inviting too. No good for me as a scary monster but very good for the opposite effect. I like your feet too, a step beyond painted toes.

Living Part Deux said...

Actually, I don't see a monster. I see two angels alighting, with wing tips touching. It is SO amazing how many interpretations there can be.

andrea said...

How fun! I see two birds with each a leg kicked back kissing...

Great illo!
a.

andrea said...

Oh and I just linked you on my illo entry, this was a lot of fun reading what every one saw!

cosmos said...

Nice illo indeed.

TXArtcGal said...

This is fantastic!!! You can see several monsters in there...depending on how you look at it!! Awesome job! (love the colors too!)

ValGalArt said...

hey I see two witch like monsters! great colours and fun too!

andrea said...

Monsters? I see intergalactic cotton candy. On rye. (Punchy. Must go to bed.)

kyknoord said...

I don't know what's wrong with me. Maybe I'm tired like Andrea, but all I can see is ice-cream.

Paula said...

I see a multi-headed monster. Very original idea.

Guyana-Gyal said...

Ooooh, upside down is even more scary, you're right. Upside down is my mean aunt who rides broom at midnight.

Reluctant Nomad said...

It looks like two Siamese twin cats facing away from the viewer. Despite being joined at the hips, the seem rather perky and happy.

aynaku said...

thank you for your comment and sorry for not answering soon...the server was down and out till now!Your interpretation is quite original as well, a fine (a bit monstrous) buttrfly!

Modern Viking said...

No monsters... Looks like a pelvis to me.

marc said...

Hello Caroline,
Ho,no!This is not a monster!This is a beautiful butterfly!
Great idea!So cute!
Good night

steve said...

Excellent idea! I have my first graders do these mixing primary colored paints. I see what "bubblegum" sees--so much love to give!

janey said...

Well this is perfect. We see what we want to see in these things right?

Catnapping said...

I see one cute short monster with big red feet, and a grand canyon of a part down the middle of his head! ROFL

carla said...

I see a truncated siamese dragon - two heads sharing one pair of big feet! This is fun:>

p.s. - I'm glad you survived the stoning, but you were just lucky...remember...everybody must get stoned!

kg said...

i see a big headless monster with mittens and bare feet. and of course, twin gargoyle heads with a large fang and a single horn sticking out of each head.

Joy Eliz said...

I keep looking at this and seeing a dog...I look harder at smaller spaces yet nothing...

Jaimie said...

I see a two headed monster with no body and the heads are facing away. cool.

megg said...

I actually saw two dancers before I read the question. What does that mean?!
