I have gotten a part time job in a store selling costumes, decorations and novelties. And seeing how Halloween is not more than a month away, the store has been decorated from head to toe with pumpkins, ghosts, vampires, spiders and everything “Halloweeny”. Seeing how working in such an environment has kind of rubbed of on my mind lately, I felt like drawing something Halloween related.
So I ended up with this pumpkin hating crazy rat.
Is there anyone else looking forward to Halloween already?
Recently, I finished a private commission where I was supposed to draw portraits. I am not a big fan of drawing proper portraits, but I am pleased with the end result. Not sure if I felt like making it extra difficult for myself or wanted to try something new, but for some reason, one of the portraits ended up being drawn with a ballpoint pen.
Good to know that I did have use for those slow days at work, with nothing to do, other than practice drawing with ballpoint pen on post-its. I am now wondering when I will need my awesome paper plane folding skills :p
I am still working on this piece, but seeing how I have not updated this blog in a while, I thought it might be nice to share something with you guys.
It is a portrait of Toshio, the freaky kid ghost from the Grudge movie. He is one of my favorite scary movie monsters, and I am pretty sure I would have died a little if I ever saw him in real life. So I decided to paint a picture of him, and hang it up on my wall.
Not so sure about hanging it up anymore though, after seeing how my 6 year old little brother reacted when he found it… Come to think of it, he kind of had the same facial expression as Toshio in this picture :p
Not sure if I’m gonna paint a new horror monster picture, but if I did, any thoughts about which horror film monster it should be?
A little update on the Patron saint poem illustrations. My old dogs drawing got picked, and is currently being featured on the cover of this month’s edition of
