The world of Elmer Preslee is like living among the monsters you dreamed of as a child. Cartoonish, over-exaggerated features and lots and lots of eyeballs seem to be the order of the day when visiting this artist's website.

Children interacting with this work, such as the monster stroller or eyeball costume, seem totally unfazed by these monsters, and I love his work all the more because of it.

Implications - Gruesome monsters continue to rise in popularity among children due to movies such as Monsters Inc. Products that incorporate unflattering creatures are viewed as humorous and eye-catching not only by children, but by the adults who will be making the purchases.
