Scary Things

A couple years ago I participated in this awesome month long challenge called "31 Postcards in 31 Days"  it was super fun and I decided to do it again this October.  I upped the challenge a bit by deciding to hand draw, ink and watercolor each postcard as a drawing challenge to myself.  I also wanted them to look dark and spooky as a practice for the book I'm starting to work on.
Here's a few glimpses at some postcards that directly relate to the book:

I am pleased with the creepiness of some of them..and I think it helped a lot for what I'm trying to move forward working on.
I'm posting a postcard every day for the month of October on my Tumblr

In other scary news I'm leading a workshop for teens at the Sulzer Library this Thursday about drawing comics. Check out the CPL events here 
I'm excited to be a part of a YOUMedia workshop and also a part of One Book One Chicago which is if you don't know about is a really cool sponsored event by CPL where one book is chosen for the whole city to read and then attend events/workshops about.  This year the book is the Amazing Adventures of Cavalier and Klay by Michael Chabon

Happy October!
