The first spread illustrates my fear of monarch butterfly caterpillars. The big thing with the giant eye-head is a monarch caterpillar (there is an "m" on his head to signify this) and it is setting fire underneath the cage in which he is keeping me captive. I will be roasted to a golden brown before he consumes me.
The blobs of red drip-stuff are tears of anguish. I don't know. They actually aren't tears of anguish, I just made that up. Maybe they are drips of lava or something.
