Presented in an oversized, full color, hardcover edition that captures the beauty of his hand painted artwork at nearly full size, The Understanding Monster Book One is a wonder to behold.
Theo Ellsworth became interested in hand-drawn alternate realities at an early age. He remembers once as a kid, racing home on his bike with a bag full of super hero comics swinging from his handle bars. He wiped out in an ally, one block from home, comics everywhere. A man watering tomatoes looked over his fence and voiced concern but Theo claimed to be fine. He quickly gathered up his pamphlets filled with hand rendered power fantasy scenarios and rode the last block home as fast as he could. He looked at them for hours. Now, years later, after many strange experiences and awkward phases, he has taken hold of the mighty pen himself and sworn his drawing hand to the depiction of characters and events in parallel dimensions. He lives in Montana with his witch doctor Wife, and their Son, who is currently in baby form.
