Halloween card proofs arrived today and they look great! I’ll contact the printer and let them know everything is good to go and sets will be in their way!

And the witch greeting card illustration is complete! I’ll need to photograph and edit her, but the drawing part is done! So. Much. Fun. Pencil on parchment. 8”x10” $150

Here’s the full format for the witch Halloween card design. I may have a phantom rising from the cauldron; we’ll see how the rendering process goes. There’ll be a lot of black in this one by the time I’m done.

After much deliberation with myself and creative bi-polarness, I’ve decided to go with a ‘pretty’ witch design instead of the classic, wart-faced geriatric for the last Halloween card design. I hope to have her finished up tomorrow and I can submit all three designs to the printer.

"The Little Prince" (detail) Here’s a better look up close. The paints still wet. The sketch is really rough and won’t be tidied up until everything else is rendered and dry. Raw umber under indigo blue under another glaze of indigo blue. Oil on birch panel. And yes, I have him a jetpack..

Another thin glaze of indigo blue down. There’s not a huge difference, but that’s the case when you work with layering. You really only notice it once they’re all done and dry. The wood grain is nice, but a total pain in the ass to work with. Oil on birch panel.
