Halloween Sketches Part 1

The first of three sketches for Halloween week

Hi Everyone,

As many of you already know Halloween is a special time of year for me. I love all the pumpkins, dressing up and Scary films on TV – I always have. I am so happy that my daughter, Joanne and her husband, Toby are following on the tradition in their home too.

The year usually runs like this for me, Halloween and a few days later Bonfire Night. This is a great lead up to December and the run up to Christmas and the New Year and then I start looking forward to the coming longer days... or at least I hope the ones in 2013 are indeed longer and sunny next year.

So with that in mind I thought instead of my usual sketch for Halloween, as it’s a short Halloween week this year, I would publish a sketch over the next three days, beginning with this one in biro of Frankenstein’s Monster.

I look forward to hearing what you think of this quick little sketch.

Until next time, have fun!

Reminiscent of Marvel's Frankie when it was drawn by Val Mayerik. Nice sketch. I love Hallowe'en too; I remember watching Carry on Screaming one October 31st back in the '70s. Might watch it again this year.

Hi Gordon,

Thanks for dropping by.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you like it.

I like Val's artwork and hadn't thought about it when I drew it, but yes, you are right.

This is a different visual take from the one I did back in 2007's Blog.

I watched that very same film probably at the same time. I loved the way they gave it the Universal Monsters/Hammer Films look and yet gave it the usual Carry On feeling of fun too. Yes, I wouldn't mind seeing it again too. Great lighting SFX from what I can remember too.

More tonight and on the morning of the night itself, here on the Blog.

In the meantime...


Best Wishes,
