Pumpkin Carving

I dug this image up an old illustration I did for a Pumpkin decorating contest a couple of years back. I think that the scariest part about a pumpkin is the mess you have to clean up after you're done decorating it.

It's hard for me to remember a Halloween where I didn't dress up as a pirate. Okay maybe there was this one time when I was four and I was Superman, and I think there was a year when I went through an Indiana Jones stage, but I always turned back to piracy.
I had fun with this sketch and tried adding a few textures and effects in photoshop. A lot of the cartoon work that I have been doing lately has had to be really clean with a lot of the work done in adobe illustrator. This sketch was refreshing because I just used the rough sketch and kinda let myself be a little sloppy.
Yarr! Be ye warned! Thar be shaols ahead, Them what die 'll be the lucky ones!

Bye, Bye Monster

I really want to get some Halloween stuff up on this blog for October. This post has monsters but they are probably a little too to cute.

Here are some drawings from a children's book I just finished. It's called "Bye, Bye Monster" and I think it should be available soon ( ). The brown monster character wasn't mine but I got to come up with a lot of his monster friends which was lots of fun. The style was simple and it had to be done very quickly but I really enjoy doing kids books. This is just a small sampling I'll have to try and post some other stuff later on.

I love October so stay tuned for some spooky stuff coming soon!
