I've always been fascinated with American Indians -- real life or fantasy, giants or the size of The Indian in the Cupboard. There the lucky Indian had a giant boy as a friend. Here's a giant Indian boy causing consternation in a small town. Where does he come from? What does he want? What will he do? I leave it to you for now.
An older drawing I did as a request. Someone asked to see a giant Indian boy with a bulging belly.Well, this boy ate an entire Boy Scout camp -- all the troops and Scout masters and anyone else there. Instead of camping out in the wide, open spaces, they're all packed inside where it's hot and dark!
Now the giant Indian boy has found a city -- and just in time! It's full of what a healthy, growing giant boy needs. The inhabitants might not be sympathetic, but he's not concerned with their opinions. Besides, those he chooses will soon have no more objection to their fate.
These drawings have been done at different times and with different methods, so excuse the differences.
(I love hearing comments and suggestions, too! Write them here or message me!)
Flash floods are very dangerous in the rocky western deserts. A rainstorm miles away will quickly fill a narrow canyon. People exploring the canyon may suddenly see a wall of water roaring down on them, despite a clear blue sky where they are. If they cannot quickly climb to a higher level, they may be swept away. Here is no rainstorm, but the giant Indian boy causing a flash flood. Prospectors looking for gold are confronted by a great golden flood!
Hear that rumbling in the distance? Sounds like thunder -- but it's not! Yet another town is about to be depopulated by the hungry giant Indian boy! He leaves a trail of ghost towns wherever he goes.
(Anyone have a good Indian sort of name for him?)
All boys have a sadistic streak, and giant boys no less so! The giant Indian boy likes to tease his food: After he pops them in his mouth, sometimes he'll open it to give them one last look. Maybe they think he will let them go. Maybe they appreciate the chance for one last look. Who knows? No one has ever survived the experience to say, since he swallows them down anyway.
Well, we're heading into a New Year, and here's a drawing of some folks heading into the Giant Indian Boy! Not exactly like the train going into a tunnel.
I don't need a crystal ball to foretell their future!
