Well I saw the thing standing in the desert heat

It had a ukelele and suction cup feet

With no one else around far as I could see

Looks like a purple people eater to me...

(And all of you should know what comes next....)


....I wanted to paint something purple.  My friend suggested the purple people eater.  So, I decided to reinvent the purple people eater.  Why is he tuning a ukelele?  Why does he have suction cup feet? Why is he in a desert?  (Well, he's clearly tuning his ukele BECAUSE he's in the desert!  You know-- different atmospheric conditions effect tuning and all!)

I used watercolors and watercolor pencils.  I've been avoiding doing things properly, so instead of using watercolor paper, I used rubber cement to stick copy paper to cardboard.  It works pretty well.  The background was done on two notecards runbber-cemented together.  This does not work well.  I combined  monster and background in Paint Shop Pro.

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater

Sure looks strange to me (One eye?)
