drawlloween days 19 and 20

I didn’t pay a lot of attention to the invention of Drawlloween, but I think it’s kind of funny how some of the prompts are generic and some are really specific.

For instance, day 19’s “Creature from the Black Lagoon” is very specific! It’s a classic Universal Monster, it has a look, it has been absorbed into the collective unconscious of the United States since its introduction. How do you deal with it? (You make a joke.)

Contrast that with day 20’s “skull.” That prompt doesn’t even have a modifier: human, animal, wine chalice made from, real, imaginary, etc etc. So you can go anywhere.

drawlloween day 20: skull

I went to the Morbid Anatomy Museum; this is a skull from the collection in the library. It wasn’t labeled and I don’t know what it is. I thought it might be a primate but I guess it could be a cat? I don’t know a lot about skull identification and am further stymied by its busted lack of teeth.
