Inktober 2016 – #37 Stripe the Gremlin

It is creeping closer to the time of year when we can start watching all of our favourite Christmas movies again.  I am very much looking forward to evenings tucked up on the sofa with my kids greeting these movies like old friends.  ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’, ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’, ‘Muppet Christmas Carol’, ‘Elf’ and so many more movies will start to get us in the festive mood.  One of my favourite Christmas movies, with a slightly different vibe is ‘Gremlins’.  The mogwai and gremlin characters in that movie are a joy and I love all the B movie elements it parodies and celebrates.  I was tempted to draw a sweet and pure little mogwai in my sketchbook but concluded it was more apt to stick with my monster theme and draw a gremlin, namely the leader of the gremlins, Stripe.  Since I forego using reference photos, I realised too late that I had drawn Stripe standing rather too erect.  In actuality, Stripe does not have the best posture and has more of a slump or hunched pose.  Never mind.  Let’s imagine that this is what a gremlin would look like after a visit to a chiropractor and some yoga.
