If there’s one thing that makes a monster scary – it’s got to be whether or not it has the ability to swallow you whole. A well designed set of teeth can turn a monster from a gummy, cuddly being to a terrifying fiend. Artist Austin Mengler has a distinctive style for drawing his beasts, they all have some pretty terror-inducing sets of pearly whites. Even the most lovable characters are transformed into fanged nightmares.
The artist explains that: “Art has always been a way for me to express myself – and also a real theraputic way to get the “demons” out. If I’m feeling annoyed or down or depressed I find it’s usually also a day in which I haven’t drawn anything in a while” Check out some of the ‘demons’ from his imagination below, and hope you never run into any of them at the dentist.
