While in chemo and resting at home Aidan has been spending quite a bit of time drawing. In order to help his family out we have started selling prints of his works as well as a few originals on Etsy at http://www.AidansMonsters.Etsy.com.
See more at http://www.AidansMonsters.Etsy.com!
I love these!!! He’s a great artist. 😀
Any chance Aiden would be willing to draw a few designs for Thanksgiving cards for his online store? I’m a little late to buy the monsters cards for Halloween, but would love to get them for the next holiday.
This is such a wonderful idea and mybe you can start early making some christmas cards for us ,we would love to purchase some.You are a brave young man and your family is truely blessed to have such a talented young man in the family.From our house to yours many blesiings and prayers and please keep me posted on any christmas cards you make .God bless Aiden n stay strong
This is such a great idea to help finance all of his medical bills! I just purchased a spongebob picture for my nephew. My college roommate battled non hodgkin’s lymphoma at the age of 6 and has been in remission for 13 years now. Keep up the positive attitudes! Aidan and his family will be in my prayers! 🙂
I just bought your Purple Monster 2! I can’t wait to get it! Thanks for making such a great picture and when I get it in the mail I will send you a picture of how cool it is in my house. You are a great artist and I hope you are feeling better today!

In case you are wondering who just bought 400 drawings. It’s the community over at reddit. Here is a link to the conversation.
We love his art BTW. Best of luck.
BTW there a many more people who’d like to get one if you can make them available. They seem to be sold out.
Hi, I am Aidan’s Aunt and I am responsible for taking care of Aidan’s Etsy. The shop had a spectacular turn out and sold over 400 prints in less than 24 hours. Since, at the moment, this is a one woman operation it may take awhile to get it up and running again. I will be sure to make a post if prints will be available again. Thank you so much!
Your monsters are spectacular. They’re keeping me company while I’m at home in bed, feeling just a little sick. Hope you’ll keep drawing 🙂
these pictures are fabulous. tell aidan that i bought five which i’m giving as christmas gifts this year because they are wonderful. good luck and keep drawing!

Hi precious guy. I would love to have one of your spongebob pictures? I think that would be a great Christmas gift for some kids I know to hang on their bedroom wall. Please let me know when you have more available on my email so I can send you the money for the one picture. You are a super artist!
Aidan’s story really impacted me. I will but one of his beautiful drawings and pray every day for his flawless soul and God’s grace to be shown to him and his family. May God bless you Aidan, and take care of you always! You are magnificent.
this young man seems to be a lot braver than i m! your monsters are very scary in the cutest way!!! they are simply adorable!!! best wishes to u and your lovely monsters!!

You are in my thoughts. Keep up the great work.
Thanks so much. I hope to have the store back up and running in the next couple days

Hey Aidan! Just wanted to tell you I bought a few of your pictures a few days ago, and I can’t wait to get them! You are a great artist, and a strong little man. Good luck to you, buddy, you’re an inspiration to us all.
Hey there Aidan,
I just wanted to tell you that I think you are one of the best people ever. My nephew loves drawing monsters just like you, and I’m sure that in a year or two he’ll be up to your standard.
Please hold on hope guys, he’s far too sweet and brave of a kid to just go away. I wish you all my luck and a prayer or two.
oh my, my readers and followers love momsters and I’ve been searching for just the right cards, Aiden’s got my business for sure
This is amazing and what a wonderful idea. I’m touched, and my thoughts are with Aidan and your family.
Hey Aidan, I just bought a red monster. It’s awesome. I can’t wait to get it. I want you to know that there’s a bunch of people on Twitter who are telling each other about your drawings right now so I hope you have to draw a lot more. I’ve got a son who’s five years old also. I gotta tell you, you make me proud. Keep it up, dude.
Just bought Scary Monster No. 4 on Esty!
Good thoughts are being sent your way.
Thanks for the drawing Aidan!!!! Can’t wait for it to get here.
Aidan’s monsters are the coolest monsters I’ve ever seen; and, I’ve seen quite a few!
Just an idea have some of his paintings laminated to make place mats.
You could laminate some of his pictures and use them as placemats.
Hi there Team AidForAidan (aka Aidan & his aunt)
Any chance of Aidan opening a CafePress (cafepress.com) store or a Zazzle (zazzle.com) store? Would be nifty to have a Tshirt or a hoodie or something like that with a genuine Aiden work on it so we can take Aidan’s art to the public at large. Also it might take the pressure off of the heavy demand I expect for Aidan’s drawings.
Thanks & am spreading the word about Aidan to all my friends.
The website Regretsy has posted a few of Aidans drawings on items on Zazzle already. You can find them here http://www.zazzle.com/regretsy
Thanks so much!

I’ve just bought your Wolverine vs the Green Goblin drawing, I can’t wait to have it in my room! Keep fighting buddy, you’re an inspiration.
Much love and best wishes from across the pond in England.
i totally love your drawings and it`s obvious your insanely talented.
when i was your age my first monster i drew was skeletor.i was about 5 at the time and my mom freaked out because i drew a skull.
i wish you all the best and i know you`re gonna grow up to be a badass artist,even though you already are!
Thanks Florian! I had to reply and let you know your comment made me giggle 😀
I applaud your imagination along w/ you & your families awesome original idea. I can’t wait to decide which one of your unique MONSTERS to buy. Keep that imagination & I’m sure sense of humor close, don’t let it go. It can be one of your strongest weapons & its good medicine. Best wishes & prayers. You’re obviously touching millions.
As a fellow monster fan and illustrator, I have to say that I’m blown away by your work, and have snapped up a Wolverine v Green Goblin print that’s going to take pride of place in my office!
Keep on fighting the good fight, and don’t stop drawing – we need more creative kids like you!
Love your Monsters, Aidan!!
– how about coming up with a comic by mixing two monsters in one story and see what they get up to 🙂
Love and light from across the pond,
Ps. Bought me the purple one 🙂
Aidan, You are a beautiful artist!! I’m so so excited to get the picture I just bought (Frankenstein!). I have the perfect spot for it. 🙂 I was very glad to see you drew a Frankenstein – I read the book in school last year. It’s pretty long, but you should read it someday; it’s a great story!
I hope you have a great day today!
You’ll be in my prayers.
Your friend, Andrea
Look out Pixar….here comes your next challenger!!!!
I think you are one brave little guy and you are doing a very good job at drawing some of the scariest monsters I have ever seen. The vampire is one of my favorites.
I hope you’ll have a good day today.
I just bought a Red Monster- can’t wait for it to arrive. My son is a cancer survivor and is an artist too. He said he thought your work was awesome! Aidan keep fighting and it will get better before you know it! I plan to send this contact info to everyone on my email list. I hope it makes life easier for your family- it is such a difficult time for everyone-keep up the good attitude it will carry you through.
Keep up the good work Aidan.
Your artwork is Awesome and scary.
I am wanting to buy a few originals? Are there any available?
We will have some available soon. I will be sure to make an announcement when we do thanks!

You are one tough and talented little guy! Your story is truly inspiring. Keep fighting and we will be praying for you!

I am going to Force Mom to get one! 😀 Good luck kid
We LOVE you little Aidan!
Your artwork is divine!
I just bought your Frankenstein Monster. I can’t wait to hang it in my house. I had cancer too and you have to be really tough and creative to knock the block off that ‘C’. You have SUPER MONSTER strength and are SUPER COOL. Way to go A-man…from your new fan…A-girl!
Hello Young Man,
My family and I would just like to send our holiday wishes to you and your family. We wish you the best little brother.
Aiden is such a wonderful little artist. My prayers are with him. Monster’s and cancer just sort of go together, except that when I was a cancer patient 15 years ago…the monster’s were the cancer cells. But, in Aiden’s case, his monster’s are beating the stuffing out of those nasty cancer cells.
I saw Aidan’s story on yahoo news, and I thought I’d check out the site and buy a print to help him. $12.00 per print is a really reasonable price, especially considering what this is going to. I’m sure you’re all very busy people, but I hope that if you see this, you’ll tell Aidan that I’m rooting for him, and that I hope he’ll be an artist one day. He’s a very courageous boy, as are his parents… this brave little boy will be in my family’s prayers. Good luck, I know he’ll make it, and I know I’ll buy a print to support him. :’]
I am touched by your story.
My prayers go out to Aiden and to the family. These monster pictures are too awesome and I have left a link on my blog in hopes of connecting more people to your cause.
I love these pics. God bless you lil Aidan , keep drawing, you will become a great artist one day. Im gonna buy one for my newborn son, whom we nickname MONSTER. Thank you
I LOVE the artwork! I am a leukemia survivor (I was 12 when I was diagnosed), and I think this is such a great idea! I wanted to let you know your family is in my prayers! STAY TOUGH, STAY POSITIVE!!!
I LOVE these monsters. They are so cool. I am saying a prayer for Aidan to get well soon! You are so brave, Aidan!!!
I must say you have warmed my heart. You and your monsters are pretty amazing. I can’t wait to buy some for my little guy. He is 2 and his name is Halo. He will love them. How cool, you’re famous buddy!!! You are an inspiration Aidan. Never stop drawing!!! May God bless you and your family.
For a 5 year old, you sure are an inspiration. You have incredible talent and your monster drawings are amazing. Keep up the good fight. You have a whole army of fans behind you.
I just purchased one of your drawings and will put it with my little girls drawings. I think you do agreta job and think it is wonderful that you are helping out. I am praying for you because Jesus loves the little children like you. I am also praying for your Dad and Mom. I once was in that simular situation and I learned a lot and love the Lord now more then ever. Take care and God bless you all.
good luck aidan!!I luv ur pictures!!!Especially the spongebob one!
My husband is buying me one of Aidans vampire pictures for Christmas and I am so excited, I can’t wait to get my picture and hang it on my wall. Thank you Aidan for the beautiful picture and for making my spirit soar! You and your family are in my prayers little guy. Big hugs and lots of love! ❤

Aidan, God bless you little Angel.
I just got one of your pretty artwork and I have to confess that……..those monsters look so real that I had a hard time trying to choose the least scary:).
I love your drawings!!! Sponge Bob is a favorite at my house so when I saw the drawing of “Sponge Bob and Crew” I knew that was the one for us. My husband has CML so your story is very dear to me. You are such a brave boy! Keep on being an inspiration. Your amazing!!!
Purchased Sponge Bob & Friends. Sponge Bob is ALWAYS on at our house and at first glance it looked like *Aimee* is written above the characters – so I had to get it. Thank you Aidan. You are a great cartoonist! (:

Happy Thanksgiving to you all and I hope Aidan do doing well. I just bought the Scream monster and can’t wait to get it. Aidan is a very special person. God willing, one day we will all see Aidan’s purpose in life. There is definitely something very spiritual and grand in store for this young man!
Peace and Love
Aiden, I am a Leukemia survivor as well! You and your monsters will win this battle! Your artwork is awesome and I wish you the very best! My prayers are with you!
I purchased two prints last evening… can’t wait for them to arrive. Thanks for sharing your story… your blog will help a lot of people facing the same fight as Aidan. I wrote a post this morning to help spread the word a little bit more… enjoy the read.
I just purchased the vampire drawing and I am very excited to get it!! I hope you’re doing well. Stay strong. Love, Kayla
We just purchased a couple prints on Etsy Aidan. You give the world hope as you are an amazing soul. Thank you for being you and for giving so many people strength to face their own monsters.
I just ordered one (Wolfman No.2) for my sister for Christmas. I plan on ordering more. I came across Aidan’s story via the Huffington Post and it just struck a chord with me. I can’t wait until I can buy more! He is a strong, talented little boy! Sending my love and prayers!
I passed over Aiden’s story on CNN.com and was amazed at the courage he must have in himself. Stay strong little dude. I also purchased a clown drawing and it will be framed in my office with Aiden’s story attached.
i bought a wolfman drawing!
you are amazing aidan. i know when things get hard its difficult to keep smiling and be happy. my boyfriend went through chemotherapy and proton radiation for his cancer and hes been cancer free for about 7 months now. everything will turn out alright!
just keep smiling buddy, and stay happy.
Wow. This story made me burst into tears, Aidan is such a brave little guy and my thoughts are with him and his family.
I’m definitely going to buy some of his art to decorate my dorm 🙂 I love them, they are so original and he is a very talented little man. I’ve been posting the address to his etsy account all over, facebook, twitter, myspace, etc. 🙂
I hope all is well and that he is still as happy and bubbly as he looks in these photos!
I just read Aidan’s story, someone sent to my email. I also have a son named Aidan. He was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at age 2. He is now 5 and just completed his treatment on November 12th. It was a long journey, but he is doing great. I wish you all the best. Aidan is a great artist. stay strong it is rough at times but he will get through this and so will you. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
I just bought one of your beautiful monster drawings, only I don’t think Sponge Bob and his friends can be considered monsters!! Oh well, next time I’ll buy a REAL monster of yours. You are so incredibly brave as you battle your own monsters, and we are all so very proud of your joyful spirit and of your amazing artwork. Keep it all up!
Also, I know how busy you’ve been with your artwork (since your popularity has exploded!), and I don’t want you and your peeps to worry about getting my drawing to me anytime soon. Although I’m very excited to have it, I can be very patient. Let’s just get through Christmas. Speaking of, we’re all wishing you a tremendously happy Christmas season. Prayers are out there strong for you. We love you very much! Aidan will WIN this battle!
Frankenstein has just arrived! Aidan your artwork is awesome! Keep fighting buddy and Keep drawing those monsters! God Bless you and your family.- Tommy

Congratulations Aidan! I`m from Brasil.
We are together!
