Get the Pumpkin Rolling!!!

The season is fast approaching and I am not near ready. I have a trip out of town and then I must get the pumpkin rolling on my projects for this years haunt. I have many things planned to traumatize my trick or treater friends and can't stand to disappoint them.

Scorpion (Penny Dreadful)

I hate admit it, but I like this show better than anything else on television right now. More than Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. Penny Dreadful speaks to the heart of me.  Vanessa Ives is played by the remarkable Eva green who makes the show spectacular. If you have a chance to see it, take it. It is rare for a show to inspire me to illustrate something connected while watching it, but this scorpion was very much the result of viewing the show.

The Babadook

The Babadook is one of the better horror films I have seen this year. If you haven't seen it I highly recommend giving it a go. I taught children's art classes this past few weeks and my students were big fans of all things spooky and monster. They asked me to make scary puppets, and so I did.
