Here's my first sketch for Ben Towle's collaborative project 'AlphaBeasts''s the link if you want to know more:

So one letter each week. Not sure if I'll manage every one, but I'll try!

A is for Afanc, a water monster found specifically in Welsh folklore tradition, which preyed on unwary travellers (don't they all ;) . Descriptions are always vague, but it is generally said to be a monstrous beaver or crocodile, or even a giant frog.

I wasn't going to add colour at first, and kinda threw it on last minute. Hmmm...not sure if I killed it, but good practice anyways I suppose.


  1. It seems a lot more like a beaver than like a frog, in that drawing. But I think it's an awesome drawing of a fearsome creature. I hope you'll draw for every letter!

  2. FANTASTIC!!!!!! I love it!!!! more pleeeaaassse!!! (:
