Cristóbal Urrea tells Dr. Hurley about the genesis of this image:
“The little one on the left is me and the other one is my big brother Nicolas. The inspiration to take this picture and work with it was the old times and how far (in time) I am from that moment. When I was drawing in this image, I remembered my old imaginary friend called “Flinkin” who was this big brown monster. He always take care of me, just like my brother Nicolas.”
Now that we know he’s protecting the two boys, Flinkin does look friendly, but on first sight, he was quite menacing!
