Happy Halloween


Almost that day already... and I don't think I've even bought any candy yet.

Oh well, since anyone knocking on my front door has to climb up about 17 steps... it kind of cuts down on the trick or treaters. So the smart child knows that to maximize their trick or treating, it makes more sense to work the other side of the street, where there are no steps to slow them down. It always seems like fewer and fewer little goblins come around every year.

This illustration appeared in Owl Magazine a couple years ago. It was one of those assignments that was just perfect to do. Can't hardly go wrong with Halloween.

May I say that your illustrations (especially the bear) are as addictive as Starbuck's Mud Pie?

It shows that you had fun with this picture John.

I wonder if in monster households, real human children come around trick or treating?

We had 6 assorted young goblins, witches and ghosts last night. I still have some sweeties left over... hmmm. I wonder what I'll do with them :o)
