A Halloween Cartoon

Here's one of my son, Chumley.
He was just talking the other day about Rob Zombie, so I linked to the song. It really does seem like a good Halloween song.

Today is Halloween, Friday the 31st. I thought I would add this cartoon to this post. It is one of my favorites. And the music is by one my favorite bands. Squirrel Nut Zippers. Enjoy.

Lon Chaney

I have been looking at Tod Brownings work as a movie director of the 1920's and 1930's and ran across this video of Lon Chaney on You Tube. It is fascinating.
I remember Lon Chaney Jr as a kid, but Lon Chaney was before my time I guess. From what I see he was a true artist in every sense of the word.

Here is a quick sketch I did of him. I accidently stuck a black marker up his nose, but how interesting to draw. I colored it with Gimp, a free program that is like Photoshop.

Practice Sketch for Today

Here is quick sketch I did today. I really like the way her hair looked and the texture of it. I was listening to music while sketching, so that was extra fun for me.

I was using a Pentel gel pen.

Thirty fours years and I still get a thrill from my wifey.
