The Art of Rich Daley

Monster Mashup the Book

Growing up, I loved designing and drawing my own monsters. I would spend hours by myself coming up with new creatures, each with their own crazy back stories and personalties. I always wanted to have someone to share this experience with, but a lot of my friends weren't artistic. This inspired me to create an easy way for anyone to draw and design their own monstrous creations. 

"Monster Mashup" is an activity book that allows the user to trace and create an original monster. I have drawn hundreds of monster parts from fun eyes, ears, claws, feet, wings and even wacky accessories. There's a limitless amount of combinations, allowing the user to get hours of fun designing monsters from the book!  I have even created a website where monster makers can post their creations and see what others have come up with.
