Hello. A while ago, I asked you guys on Twitter to tell me the stupid shit you were scared of as kids. The idea was to take a selection of your replies and draw them, thus bringing them to life in a horrifying vista of terror and bum shits.
However, I cannot draw. Therefore, these pictures have ended up being less than terrifying. So I’m just going to claim that this was my intention all along.
Join me in a lovely group therapy session, then, as I attempt to show you that your childhood fears were actually shit and crap.
NB: All your replies were great, but I was a bit limited by my artistic skills. Also, I had no idea how to do “the house with all the cats” or “Stan Laurel being turned into sausages”. Sorry about that.
Anyway – let’s begin!
“The sound of a flushing toilet”
“This is a weird one, but hear me out: Michael Buerk”
“The clock on the mantelpiece in my grandmother’s living room”
“Sister was scared that The Incredible Hulk would climb through her bedroom window”
“Being eaten by a big dog”
“I’ll tell you what scared me – THE CLOCK ON COUNTDOWN”
“I was scared the people on TV could also see me”
“I used to think a giant evil lion stalked the corridors when we were sent to bed”
“I was scared that when I went to the toilet, Jaws would swim up the U-bend and eat me”
“Mrs Slocombe from Are You Being Served”
“Skeletons on the landing”
“Headless men in polo necks”
