Acephalos

I follow this really incredible artist, Christopher Burdett, who draws mainly monsters, and draws them incredibly well. A little while ago on his blog he drew a monster for every letter of the alphabet, which I thought was a great idea. I bought this book, Giants, Monsters, and Dragons: An Encyclopedia of Folklore, Legend, and Myth, which unfortunately hasn’t been delivered yet but it has descriptions of different types of monsters. I got to briefly skim through the pages and came across the monster, Acephalos, which will be my letter A! An acephalos, is a greek monster that resembles a headless human with eyes and a scary mouth in the middle of its’ chest. Are you frightened yet?
