Time is going by.
It seems that not so long ago we talked about the first enrollment to Monsters School and showed the characters created in the group of artists. But in the blink of an eye, before we could get enough sleep, three long months of studies have flown by. And now it’s time for our nestlings to leave their comfortable monster’s lair and make their first solo flight.
Of course, everyone studied and learned something. Everyone considers himself/herself the best, and it’s time to hand out diplomas, awards and other honors.
How to choose the best of the best?
Of course in a contest, as during the course they were taught not only to paint, but to think and invent as well. This way the course was extended for one more month, so that the students could come up with their own plot for a cartoon and paint a poster for it.
This task turned into their graduation work. At this point it became clear, what each of them was capable of. The marks have already been given, and now we’d like to show you what our almost-monsters created.
