This is Halloween


Welcome foolish mortals to Halloween season. I love Halloween. From now until Oct. 31 I'll be watching horror movies, reading scary stories, listening to suspenseful old radio shows, and drawing more Halloween themed stuff. This piece was fun because I included three seasonal stereotypes: the sexy (but dangerous) witch, the Boris Karloff-like undertaker guy, and the mutated, possibly undead-certainly inbred- hilbilly maniac. I'd like to thank the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland from which I stole the background wallpaper design, and my dad who was nice enough to help me with the "Happy Halloween" part of the image.

Wow! This is so fantastic!!! I love the attention you pay to detail - particularly the skull on the witch's dress and the way you've framed the whole picture. If this is any indicator of what's to come (and I'm sure it is), I can't wait for some more Halloween drawings!

Awesome work - as usual. Let the spooky fun of October begin....

Ok, the hill-billy guy, Yikes! That's... I don't know. Very good, though.

I like the witch with her red nose and the skull dress. And I really like the texture of the undertaker's skin. Great characters, all. Very nice.

Cool, Kevin. As ugly as the inbred guy is, he's got some very pretty colors happening in his face. I like the witched dress too.

Seth Hippen said...

So cool. I love it. Everything about this is fantastic.

I thought the wallpaper was very Haunted Mansion-ish, and then it was exactly that.

This is the coolest thing ever. I love October on your blog. In this one I like the Karloff guy most.

David Malan said...

Awesome, I love the old mans face, the chicks hands, the wallpaper, and the flat shadow coloring, and all of it.

Josh Keele said...

I don't know what you art talking about Kevin. I think they are all sexy in their own rights. Like that big dude in back. I am sure there is some equally hilbilly tart with beaver teeth to compliment his own. Now that's love. Very cool though, like usual. I also love it when you start in on your halloween drawings. I think you should definitely do these more often, not just for the season. So cool.
