31 Monsters in 31 Days (2014 Edition): Monster 10 - Slender Man

Slender Man - Copyright ©2014 Kevin P. Johnson

Slenderman . . . I’ve drawn this guy a few times in the past the first time he was requested as a commission for someone about three years ago and I couldn’t believe that I had never heard of him before. This guy was originally created by Eric Knudsen back in 2009 as an Internet Meme and he has taken on a life of his own. Knudsen has allowed artist to use his character in the past but does own the rights to him. Slender Man is known for stalking and abducting his victims especially children. He is tall with unnaturally long arms and legs with tentacle or hooked type arms and is often shown with four more tentacle like limbs coming from his back. The Slender Man dresses in a black suit with a red tie and has a white head that has minimal to no features. Wikipedia says that “Proximity to the Slender Man is often said to trigger a “Slender sickness”; a rapid onset of paranoia, nightmares and delusions accompanied by nosebleeds.” 

I like this guy he’s kind of creepy and weird and fun. I’d love to see a really well done movie featuring him.

Thanks for looking,
Kevin P. Johnson
