Happy Halloweenie

Hey everyone! I can’t believe Halloween is just a couple of days away. October has flown by so fast! Has it felt that way for anyone else? I saw on my Facebook page a couple of weeks ago the cutest Halloween yard inflatable that featured a cute dachschund and knew that I wanted to create a cute illustration featuring one too. I loved the play on words that they used for “Happy Halloweenie”. So I incorporated that into the illustration. I used Procreate to draw out this cute guy and for the lettering. I really love how it turned out!

It’s All A Bunch Of Hocus Pocus

Hi all! There is only 2 weeks until Halloween! We watched my favorite Halloween movie last night, Hocus Pocus. I know that it has blown up in popularity recently, but I have loved it since it first came out. It’s very nostalgic to me! I decided to make a lettering piece out of one of the quotes from the movie. It’s possibly one of my favorite scenes from the movie. I created this piece digitally using Procreate. I wanted the quote to be front and center by keeping the the other graphics pretty simple. I just added this piece to my Society6 and Redbubble shops on prints and products. Enjoy!

Halloween Pumpkin Bouquet

Hey everyone! I can’t believe Halloween is approaching so quickly. It feels like the October just started. To get into the spirit, I sketched out this cute drawing one morning. I decided to use watercolor to paint it in, since that is my favorite painting medium. I really like the depth of colors it gives yet always gives a unique feel to every painting. Let the countdown begin! 3 weeks until Halloween!

Trick or Treat

And now for my second post of the day! Here is a quick doodle that I made using Procreate. It’s all things Halloween! My two sons are obsessed with Halloween and the main reason is trick or treating. So this drawing is dedicated to them and their love of all things candy related. They would eat candy for every meal if I would let them. I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!

 

Black Cat and Pumpkin

Today is a two for one kind of day! We have been busy with birthdays, Halloween parties and fighting off colds. So I’m a little behind on my posts! Here is a cute little black cat and jack-o-lantern that I created in Adobe Fresco. I have been playing around with this new program and really like the textures and brushes it has to offer. I really like how this turned out. It definitely has a different feel to it than most of my drawings. Enjoy!

 

Boo-zy!

Monday….I wish it wasn’t Monday! I think I just need one more day of the weekend. I’m sure everyone is feeling the same way. Here is something that will hopefully put a smile on your face. What is it, you ask…It’s a ghost having a cocktail! Tell me this didn’t make you smile just a bit. I created this little ghost guy digitally using Procreate. They have this really cool brush that creates the splatter I used in the background to make it look like spray paint. It definitely helped add the texture this ghost desperately needed. Plus, didn’t you hear the 90’s are back! So it fits in perfectly…lol! This guy will be up in my Society6 and Redbubble shops later today on product. Enjoy!

 

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! It’s finally here! I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween. I can’t wait to take the boys trick or treating tonight with our family and friends. They have been so excited about going. My littlest has asked every night this month if it’s “trick or treat time”. What’s your favorite thing about Halloween? This sketch was made digitally using my Procreate app. I’m still continually working to improve my hand lettering, I’m getting more comfortable every time I try. Have fun tonight everyone!

Stay Spooky

Is the weekend over already? I feel like it flew by really fast. It was a pretty busy weekend for us with family in town, my oldest son’s birthday party and errands. Monday always seems to come too fast. I’m trying to build up some Halloween art in my portfolio, so you will be seeing a lot of it until Halloween comes along. Here is one I did recently. It was a pretty fast sketch during some downtime, but I still like how cute it turned out. This one was made digitally on my iPad. Stay spooky everyone! Enjoy!

Basic Pumpkin

Happy Monday! Here is a quick design I made on my iPad this past week using my Procreate app. I thought it would be cool to create a piece that displays the common trend of being called “basic” during the Fall season. Especially if you like anything pumpkin spice…which unfortunately includes me! If being basic is wrong then I do not want to be right. I’ve got my scarf and fake Ugg’s on while holding my favorite pumpkin spice latte this morning. I’m owning it!

Cute Halloween Witch

Hey everyone! It’s the weekend and it has been full of planning for birthday and halloween parties. It’s amazing how many things you have to take into consideration, especially the weather. We have had, what it feels like, a week and a half of rain here in Kansas City. They even mentioned the dreaded word….Snow…. possibly overnight tonight. Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen. Here is a cute witch that made this week. I had a special request to make her because they wanted a cute witch mug. It looks so cute! Here are a couple of sales going on in my shop today…just in case you were wanting a mug too!
