What makes a monster evil? Are zombies as scary to a European person as they are to an Asian person? How can you design monsters so that they are scary to some, or all cultures? Artist and illustrator Eva Toorent and creature artist Maddie Spencer talk about the artistic and cultural storytelling of monsters, how to visualize them, how to distinguish them from humans while making them human enough to scare us, how to navigate this endeavor as an animator and designer, and how to answer the question: What makes monsters human?
