I wanted to share some of Megan Marie Myer’s original sketches for Zoe and the Amazocalypse, our Kickstarter for an illustrated children’s book about the tech boom’s impacts on Seattle.

She actually came up with the box monster concept used in the story first, but also drew three other Amazocalypse monster concepts.

The second sketch reminded me of Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, which is making a comeback:

The third sketch was clearly nerd monster Amazocalypse:

The fourth sketch was Drone Monster Amazocalypse, drones will play a critical role in “Daddy, Where’s the Space Needle?”

Ultimately, we both loved the first box monster concept:
