Flatwoods Monster Original Drawing Recently Rediscovered

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on July 14th, 2015


The original drawing of the Braxton County Monster (seen above, commissioned by Lee Steward, and drawn by a New York sketch artist) based on Kathleen May’s description; seen in countless newspaper clippings, reprinted in books, and shown on television; an image copied by countless artists, game creators, and cartoonist; has long been thought to be lost to time. However, the drawing was recently rediscovered in Braxton County, West Virginia. The long time owners would like to remain unnamed due to the rarity of the piece and the possible value it might have. Please enjoy the high resolution photos by clicking on the thumbnails below. If you would like to help the family appraise the drawing, please contact: info (at) braxtonwv.org.

    I’ve always hypothesized this monster was actually someone in a hazmat suit. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/96/Hazmat_suit_c1918.jpg

    Here’s another one that is very similar: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Hitzeschutzanzug_form1.jpg

  3. Goodfoot responds:

    It doesn’t look like that hazmat suit in the least. Plus, it would have to have been a floating hazmat suit about 5 times the size of a human being.

    Wrong tree. Barked up.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
