The Angry Mopheads

I wanted to write a children's book and illustrate it all with clay objects, digitally altered whenever necessary. It was about a kid named Jesús (Spanish hay-soos, not English jee-zuss) who has nightmares about an angry mop in his closet. The nightmares involve the furious mop chasing him down slippery corridors until he falls flat on his back, with the mop coming closer and closer to his upturned face. The last few pages would be without words, but would show Jesús waking up with the mop on his face, getting married with the mop on his face, having children with the mop on his face (and also on the faces of the children), and finally lying in a coffin, still with a mop on his face. I made the model of Jesús looking scared in bed, but I don't have a picture and it's not finished anyway. I made four models of the mopheads; my favorite is the one on the bottom right, even if it looks a little like one of those shaggy McDonalds mythos creatures from the 70s.
