Thanks to the media and thanks to Hollywood and how they shape and mold our relationship with words and culture, the word Monster immediately gives rise to thoughts of ugly, grotesque, exaggerated beings. The type of “things” you don’t want to be around. The type of "things" should be afraid of.

But…what if. What if Monsters have feelings too? What if we delve a little deeper and take a closer look? What if we notice that Monsters can feel too? Monsters can love, they can hurt, they can be overcome by sorrow, and they can be filled with joy. Monsters display their most vulnerable and intimate feelings, bearing their own hearts on the outside for all to see.

In this artwork, you will truly see that Monsters can feel. They are like us. They are us. They are beautiful. Like you and me. We are all Monsters. Beautiful, loving, creatures. Cute in our own ways. Monsters that can feel. When you look at these cute monsters, can you feel what they feel?

Physical Artworks

The two 1/1 Paintings each also have a physical painting. The physical artworks have been created using pen and watercolor on special watercolor paper. These artworks are extremely rare for Jon since he does not usually create physical variation paintings of his digital paintings.
