For a really long time I've been wanting to do this project...
When I was little, my dad used to take me to the video store (remember those?) every week and we'd rent Godzilla movies. He had tried countless times to get me to watch the "classics" that he grew up with, and the majority of the time they just couldn't keep my tiny mind occupied; Godzilla was really the only thing that would stick. Even though I knew it was a guy in a rubber suit and it was completely outrageous, something about those films struck a cord with my imagination. The costume designs, the miniature set pieces, the anticipation of finding out if Godzilla would be a good guy or a bad guy - it was absolutely captivating.
But most importantly it was a bonding experience for me and my dad, so Godzilla, despite the cheese, holds a very special place in my heart.
So about four weeks ago I decided to buckle down and pay homage to this great franchise by illustrating a whole mess of Godzilla's opponents. Hope you enjoy!
