A Self Portrait for Halloween

This is more of a sketch than a serious self portrait. I didn't have a mask, so I had to make one up. 
Happy Halloween, Y'all!

Frankenstein's Monkey

This was just a quick sketch with a Uniball gel pen. I colored it with my computer. Hopefully you get the idea of it, anyway.
I really like Corel Painter Essentials 3's Creepy Font. I also like the digital watercolor feature.
This is a pencil sketch of my son, Chumley. Just for Halloween.

From the sketchbook I had Last October around Halloween

Here are a couple of sketches from one of my sketchbooks from this time last year. It's funny, I don't write much in my sketchbooks, but the stuff I draw jogs my memory enough that I can remember what was going on then. In a way, this blog is a bit like a journal, too.
Last year around Halloween we were just getting over the worst flu I ever. I say "we" because My wife Aunt Bee, my son Chumley and I all had it together. I remember how awful I felt. How cranky Aunt Bee and Chumley were.
I also remember this obsession I had with masks. I had to go to the doctors office and asked if they could provide a mask so I would not get anyone else sick. Surprisingly they told me there were none available.

Another cat cartoon done in pencil with some computer additions.

My drawing has been uninspired as of late. But our little cat is always interesting. Lately she's been staying up all night looking for bugs.
She really is a sweet cat, but she does get a little obsessed when it comes to catching bugs. :)
