Editorial Reviews

Review

"I've probably already seen more monsters than most do in their whole life, but I'm still none the wiser as to why some monsters work and others don't. [...] What I do know is that John's monsters absolutely hit the spot."  —Geek Culture

This is just one of those books you can flip through in a matter of minutes.

I've been enjoying his work on Facebook for awhile now and was excited to see he had a book available, so, I squealed and ordered it.

The author has a very nice style, more polished than Edward Gorey but with the same weird mood.

My children love/ and are terrified of this book! My first grader keeps hiding it all over the house so it can't "get him", but then he wants me to read it with him. He does seem to be getting braver. Terrific art in the tradition of Edward Gorey!

This guy is the best! I have been following his blog forever and as soon as he made a collection available I bought it. I would love it if the book was the size of the sticky notes he draws on, that would really just push it over the top as far as awesome goes. John creates worlds.

I've been enjoying his work on Facebook for awhile now and was excited to see he had a book available, so, I squealed and ordered it. Why this comes in a plain ole Amazon box instead of a container that hides a bursting-out-tentacle is just a reminder of the mundane world we live in. STICKY MONSTERS is a bit bigger than the size of your hand, square, slimmer than your pinky, and full of kooky goodness. Every page could hold it's own little story - if you dared imagine it. Any human featured must be experiencing trepidation, and every lurking menace nearby seems to have just noticed lunch has arrived. Since the pictures were originally on yellow stickies, they're reproduced in similar size - and you'll probably (like me) wish they were bigger, colorful, and even more revelatory. That's what makes them special efforts. This is sort of the perfect combination of Ed Gorey, Tim Burton, Roald Dahl, and Boris Karloff - whimsical, creepy, full of haunting whispers, and beautifully drawn.

My brother is a fan of Mortensen's Sticky Monster artwork, so I purchased this book as a Christmas gift. He hasn't seen it yet, but I know he'll love it. I'm not sure how it compares with what is available to be viewed online (so I'm not sure if there is anything new), but from what I can tell the artist doesn't sell any originals or prints, so if you know someone who is a fan, this is pretty much the only way you can get them a physical copy of the artwork.

Overall, I'm pleased with the quality of the art as well as the construction of the book and I can't wait for my brother to see it!
