My "Saturday Morning Monster" is a kid's cartoon monster that would have his own Saturday morning show between Spongebob and Ben 10 (Red, black and blue ballpoint pens)

It's been almost a week since the postman has dropped a monster through the letterbox but it's been worth the wait.

Top Five Monsters So Far

I'd be interested to know which are your favourite portraits so far. Leave your top five in the comments on this post, numbered 1 to 5 and at the end of the week I'll tally up the results and announce the top five. I'll put all the names of people who leave comments in a hat and send out an envelope of Franks to the winner as an incentive to get voting.
