I had an idea about a young ghost leaving home and a heart broken mother ghost.  It's tough moving out on your own when you're alive and it must be even harder to cross over!  Very sad story.  I hope the rest of the family leave the old run down house soon!

Update, I did not win, or even place, in this contest.  It's all good.  Honestly, I'm a little down because I've been striking out pretty regularly of late in the art contest arena.  Maybe this style isn't working??  People don't seem to be "gathering" around it.  I think I'll hold on to it for a while longer, see what happens.  Keep on with keeping on :-)

Halloween, update, pen/ink

The Science of Saving Money ( New style )

I've been playing with a new style.  Bold, easy to produce, simple line drawing with a Winsor & Newton Series 7, size 1, brush.  I like the less is more work flow.  I've done several line test with digital brushes and I wasn't in love with the results.  It just didn't "feel" right.  I think when it comes to creating art dependent on a simple black line, it has to be perfect!! ( ie, Peanuts)  I love the look/feel of the traditional brush.
