Feeling Like Halloween

Wooooooo - doing some spooky Halloween themed postcards and envelopes to send out to my like-minded art friends and family.

This Dogman is headed to Wisconsin to someone that has an interest in the many reports in that area.  Of course, I've never seen one, so I have only my imagination to draw from...I think he looks rather frightening.  And it was fun to create a subject matter I'm unfamiliar with.  I'm hoping our postwoman will be entertained.

Here's some colored pencil silhouettes that were fun to do.  I usually do something like this while watching football or whatever program we happen to have on.  I'm kind of partial to the Haunted House.  That one's headed to Scotland.

And here's some less scary options for those that don't like a spooky theme or don't recognize an All Hallows' Eve type day in their country.  I'm not done creating yet, but I'd better get on it or they'll miss receiving them this month.  

It's been awhile since I've posted on this blog.  We downsized this summer and the move was a bit stressful and hectic.  I hope now that we're getting settled in the new (and it sure feels little) place, I can contribute here a bit more often.  Thanks so much for checking in.  Please excuse quality of photos here today, I took them with my phone instead of the Nikon.  

All of the above were created with colored pencils and ink on cardstock or plain white envelopes.
