Transmundane Tuesdays

Transmundane Tuesdays is a weekly creative challenge organized by artist Carson Ellis.

Every Tuesday she chooses three prompts that describe a creature at random and posted them on Instagram for people to draw.

Transmundane means existing outside of the physical or visible world and I’ve been enjoying this assignment to explore new creative subjects and narratives.

Is elfin + is very old + wearing a crown

The elf king: “Maybe it’s time for a makeover..”

エルフの王様: そろそろイメチェン時かな。

Is partly invisible + wearing glasses + singing a bewitching song

Ghost karaoke! Boooo all night! 

Is canine + sweeping the floor + wearing sneakers

Guitar broom! This was literally me back in the elementary school. Sweeping outdoor was always fun “cleaning” .


小学校あるあると言うか、ほうきギターは鉄板。外掃除当番はいろいろ楽しかったなあ。

Giant + wearing a lot of jewelry + holding a cat

A cat lady during the ice age got to hang out with sabertooth tigers — so jealous!

氷河期の猫好き女子は、サーベルタイガーと戯れる…羨ましい!

Wearing rags + lives underground + singing a bewitching song

Even wolves are quiet tonight. It’s my turn to sing to the moon.

狼も静かな夜。今夜は僕が月に歌うね。

Wearing a fur coat + carrying a bundle of sticks + glows

“I ain’t no ordinary stick bug. It’s time to stick out!”.

「俺はそこいらのナナフシと違うぜ。目立ってなんぼよ!」.
