One recent project of McFee’s was this banana-shaped figure, created for the local bookstore-gallery Domy, which invited dozens of artists to make a monster for its Halloween show. “He’s not really your typical monster with big teeth,” says McFee. “I see him more as evil, almost like an evil Muppet. He looks like Beaker. I make protagonists and antagonists — there’s a certain group of characters that look nice and friendly, and others that are evil or just regular angry or unhappy people. Everyone goes through those emotions sometimes, so those kind of guys are in there, too.”
