Our next guest art is this astonishingly cryptid-laden piece by Jon Kay alias Cartoonist_at_Large, author of the comic Cosmos!
He writes: "Put your cryptozoological skills to the test and see if you can name them all!"

I have no idea what the winged snake with the ant head is, and I'm scared to ask. :p

Incidentally, that's the one I also had no clue about when Cartoonist at Large first sent me this picture. It is indeed very obscure...

Has anyone really seen graboids outside of the Tremors films?

This is actually a Mongolian death worm, which is a real cryptid. ("Real" in the sense that real people seem to believe in its existence, I mean. You know how it is with cryptids and proofs of their existence...)

It's so varied and colourful. Nice creature designs!

Considering Cartoonist's location, I'm surprised there's no Queensland Tiger.

Or a bunyip, or a dropbear...

Without cheating, I can only guess one or two. I see Bigfoot and a Kraken(?).

I hate those moments when you have to take a picture and ofc this happens. For me, it's quickly pulling out my phone and getting to the camera as fast as possible.

And I love the how this is designed.

Yep, Bigfoot and Kraken, that's a good start. :-)

And yes, cell phones have made the whole "taking picture" business a lot easier. Imagine the number of photos taken worldwide compared to just e.g. 20 years ago!

LOL! I love the way the grey is turning to the horse-thing and the bigfoot looks so puzzled.

Jon Kay always gives his best!
You should see the absolutely awesome multiple page story he did with my characters for the 2017 Christmas Crossover Exchange!
And of course also all of the other exchange pieces he did over the years!

BTW, I think the "horse-thing" is supposed to be the Jersey Devil, which actually already appeared in my comic over here.
