Monstrous Monday

As promised, two monstrous images by the great Charles Keeping.

Above we have Grendel from Gods and Men, an Oxford University book on mythology published in 1981, and, below, Grendel's terrifying mother from Kevin Crossley-Holland's version of Beowulf, published a year later. Surprisingly different styles but both stunning, in my opinion.
