A Halloween Playlist, a simple pencil sketch colored with my computer.

This was a simple pencil sketch that I colored the other night while Aunt Bee was helping Blind Ambition with their fund raiser. I thought of some better spooky songs after I was done, oh well.
"I Put a Spell On You" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins, "The Ghost of Stephen Foster" and "Hell" by Squirrel Nut Zippers and the list goes on.

This video of Screamin' Jay Hawkins makes me smile every time I watch it. Screamin' Jay had a fantastic voice and he preformed this number with a great deal of humor.
Watch it if you dare! Bwahahahahahahahaha!

Masks for Halloween made from paper bags.

I got the idea for the bag masks from a couple of things I saw on the internet. The designs are mine and they were quite easy to do.
I used regular grocery bags cut off on the bottom so my head would be at the top of the bag. I also cut semi circles on either side to go over my shoulders.
Next I sketched out the faces on the bag with pencil. Then I used whatever I could find for coloring these Magic markers, prismacolor coloring sticks mostly.
They are a bit cumbersome, but we will only be wearing these for a few minutes. There are probably some ways to modify these for more mobility, though.
Aunt Bee took these photos with her new phone.

A pencil sketch about anxiety, colored with computer, and a witch.

Hello to everyone stopping by. It's fall here and I have been thinking of Halloween a bit. I just like the time of year and the festivity of it all!
Also, I am still learning to color my drawings with Photoshop. I am getting better, I think, but still have some learning to do. I guess I should go online and study more. :)

Bella the cat goes Gaga.

I think it's just a phase she's going through...
Actually this was a card for Chumley's birthday. Bella goes Gaga for your birthday.
