IF theme: “Expired”

This one goes out to all those who hate to clean out the refrigerator. (Like me.)

Refrigerator monster


Here’s a sketch of the mold monster that I came up with first. It was smaller and cuter then:

    Hi Jessica. Beautiful work! I hope you don't mind but I've borrowed your mold monster in the fridge to accompany a horror short story called Mossy on my website (www.edwinmcrae.com). I've linked it to your site and credited you (of course). Don't hesitate to let me know if this is a problem (I'll take it down if you wish).

      My mold monster would undoubtedly be delighted to accompany your "Mossy" tale! :)

    Would you mind if I printed this out and stuck it on the fridge at work to remind people to clean the damn thing once in a while?

      Not at all! I should probably put it on my fridge too...

    Haha, love it. I got directed here from TV Tropes because this image is the header for the entry "It Came From The Fridge".

    I just emailed this picture out to my co-workers to remind them to throw away their food before the long holiday break. Thanks! :)
