river monsters - searching for sizable serpents

River Monsters - the search for the giant anaconda!

I got the idea for this cartoon after reading about a father and son team from Northern Ireland, the Warners, who self-financed an expedition to Peru to look for a giant anaconda. While the expedition failed to yield any conclusive evidence, it certainly fired up my imagination, as I've always been interested in cryptozoology...and the chance to draw strange beasties!

I thought that this was the perfect subject material for a more detailed type of cartoon. I liked the idea of an expedition in the middle of the rain forest, not managing to spot the critter as it was lurking under their noses the whole time.

I really enjoyed drawing this picture, and have made a separate page detailing how I went about creating it. If you are interested in the process of creating cartoons please click below.
