Monster Alphabet: "A is for Albora"

Greetings! Cloudscape is proud to announce a new contest: the Monster Alphabet.

Every week, a name for a strange new creature will be posted, each one beginning with a new letter of the alphabet. You will have until the following Wednesday to create a drawing of whatever bizarre monster or fabulous beast that name inspires in you. Then all the pictures will be posted together and the general public will vote on which creature they think best suits the particular name. After that, I’ll write a one-paragraph description of the creature based on the drawing, post it on the website, and the process will repeat itself until we have a gallery of 26 monsters, one for each letter of the alphabet.

All submissions should be sent to me, Bevan Thomas, at

The first monster is:


Pictures of the albora will be due on Wednesday, June the 27th.
