The Microcephalic Minotaur hails from Victor Stabin’s ABC book, Daedal Doodle. Victor was an illustrator for 25 years, stopped accepting commissions in order to create his own paintings, then stopped painting to create an ABC book for his two- and three-year-old daughters.
His first daughter was highly verbal; at two he taught her to say “My daddy is a megalomaniac.” At the time he was reading both kids tons of ABC books. As they were evolving, he was devolving from the books’ stifling simplicity. His ADD got the best of him—he put down his brushes, picked up his dictionary, and three and a half years later, he smashed the ABC status quo and popped out Daedal Doodle.
