MONSTRO-CITY


Apoorva Bansal Diploma Project 2011 Textile Design


I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in the living, its a way of looking at life through the wrong end of the telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities. - Dr. Seuss

These monsters hail from the great city of MONSTRO-CITY. They were invading planet earth with the sole motive of taking over the world (obviously!). But the moment they saw the planet, they decided to delay the evil plans and first travel around a bit, since they are in complete awe in what wonderful things this planet is made up of! They love to travel here. Explore, collect, experience. These monsters cant get enough of it!

The monstro-city hood.


stu. Loves to travel on your piggyback. A little silly, a little shy, can never take decisions and is always upto following orders. He is very scared of Gwump.


eeep. Eeeep is in awe. He has discoverd his ultimate passion in life. Collecting buttons! And when he saw just how many kinds there are on earth, his eyes have been wide open since!


FlapFlap. Since he has seen birds on the planet, Flapflap just cannot stop wishing he could fly!. Now he is on a mission. To collect as many feathers so that he can get he can build his own monster wings!


bwaak. Bwaak poor Bwaak. He is a travel freak! But oh no, speed makes him so so sick! He gets all dizzy and wants to throw up!


Gwump. He means business. No nonsense monster, he only likes to travel where he can find something that entertains him

Gwump.


Whaaa. is always exactly what he sounds like. He is super curious all the time! He wants to know everything! So pull out is brain and start answering all his questions!

Whaa.


Nomnom. He is the metal eater! He eats everything metallic that can be found anywhere. But since he has come to the planet earth, his personal favourite has been coins! Of all shapes and sizes!


Ooohah. Ooohah cannot believe what his eyes can see. He is in so much awe that he hasn’t blinked in years! He likes to remember all his good memories in his belly where his brain is.


Jador has found his favourite place where his mustaches are considered high in fashion. He is already loving this place. This 3 eyeballed monster sees anything 3 times. He is still getting used to it.

jador.


Froop is confused all the time. If left alone to travel, he will never be able to find his way back. So now he holds a pen so that wherever he travels, he can draw a map and find his way back!

Froop.


Meeek. Meeek is a super shy monster, she will never look you in the eye. Never talk for herself. But her little pocket friend always speaks for her, want to hear what does she have to say?


Blaah. Blaaah is a super moody monster. What is he feeling like today? His mood modulator beslt wil tell you. Move his eyes around and see what all he can feel!
