Witchy Night

Here is one more Halloween piece for this year. It started off as a traditional green witch with a black cat. Then during a long meeting at my dayjob, I was coloring my thumbnail sketch with an orange highlighter. Oh, and then I thought a pumpkin chucking gorilla or Yeti would make a more suitable co-pilot. I opted for the Gorilla since I liked that color scheme more. I feel like drawing a Yeti now...

Happy Halloween!!

Halloween: 1979

Here is another ink/Photoshop illustration depicting myself when I was five years old and we had to wear a costume in my pre-school program. My mom made this cool Batman suit for me, since Batman had always been my favorite super hero. I still have this costume sitting in my studio...too bad it does not fit. It is still in really good condition, even the tights.

I love you Mom!

A Jolt For Frankie

Another Halloween piece for this year. I'm getting more into India ink work and digital coloring, so much faster! I have been a graphic designer for well over a decade so i understand the time you can save working digitally, yet my heart is still in traditionally rendered illustration. So I'm hanging on to the brushes for as long as I can, but it sure is nice to change colors with a magic wand.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday next to Christmas. It is a great and inspiring time of year. This piece was rendered in India ink and with a brush. I really enjoy brush inking now, it took me a while to get used to. I'm hoping to work up some more Halloween pieces before the end of the month, we'll see.
