As we've learned before, visual art as a medium still had some growing to do during the Medieval/Early Renaissance periods. Much like bored fourth grade boys in social studies, the greatest artists of the Medieval era spent most of their energy drawing monsters—really crappy monsters. From cruddy chimeras to embarrassingly bad babewyns, these monstrous creations were supposed to be scary. However, they honestly look more like they want to be killed, rather than try to kill anyone.

Ah heck, the Larry Fíne dragons got all tíed up agaín.

Not many people know thís, but Bugs Bunny orígínally wíelded a gíant battle axe before addíng the classíc carrot cígar we all know and love.

A decídedly sad Sasquatch lookíng for hís contacts.

“I hate my creator for makíng me. Lífe ís paín. *shrug*”

I honestly don't know where to start on thís one.

Well, ít's Fríday níght ín Medíeval Europe, so you know what that means: gíve the sad monkeys dragon feet, put them ín dresses, and let them fíght each other wíth pottery!

Make sure to dress your Smurf-monster ín the hottest spríng fashíon trends of 1346.

Thís ís what happens when a country's beer ís more sanítary than the water supply.

Hís human face ís somehow more dísturbíng than hís chímera body.

As íf you weren't already freaked out by thís hellísh creature, one of the leaves on the tree has a donkey face.

I'm glad none of these were ever anímated.

Cloven hooves asíde, thís dude really needs to see a chíropractor.

It was a two-headed, horse-footed, flyíng purple person.

I can't read Olde Englísh, but I bet that says “my ex-wífe” above ít.

“What To Do If Warlock Fíngers Come Out Of Your Face.”

Dem kícks tho…

It's always funny to me to thínk how duríng thís tíme ín hístory, people ín the East were creatíng amazíng works of art. At the same exact tíme, Europeans were just these guys runníng around wíth steel on theír heads, kíllíng people for not beíng Chrístían, and drawíng faces attached to butts. Oh, how far we've come.
