COTN Update - Zoinks!

Like, zoinks, Scoob!

I'm falling behind on my daily spooky characters... again! But I've decided not to worry about it. I'm just not in a mood to rush the cartoons these days. I think it's because 'Characters Of The Night' has a spooky vibe that I really groove on and, more than any other aspect of working on them, I enjoy building up the seasonal atmosphere in the drawings. Which takes, y'know, a bit of time.

Not sure how many more COTN I'll actually get done between now and Halloween, but I'll do what I can. Anyway, hope you've been enjoying the ones completed so far; here's a sneak peek of the next COTN and some of the inking I got done today.

Character Of The Day: groovy.

Cold Spot

Back in black (ink)! Hit the sack. Been away too long; Characters Of The Night is glad to be back.

I've been quoting a line from Star Wars a lot, over the last few days.

In my head, to myself, mostly. It's one of those lines that doesn't even seem like a Star Wars quote if you say it out loud, and is therefore acceptable in polite company. I've posted it above.

Just a simple cold, no big deal, but it's knocked Characters Of The Night off the rails a bit this week. I am REALLY sorry about that, but hang in there - I will too - and before the end of the week, the spooky cartoon pipeline will be flowing again. I PROMISE.

One other thing that I'd like to mention before I go: while this isn't a proper hype post for the event (I'll write a real one later), Character Of The Day's second show of original artwork this year is now all hung and ready to be viewed at Portabella in Picton. It's something like 36 mostly-never-shown-in-public-before framed cartoons from Character Of The Day. If you're in Picton sometime soon, please stop in there for a great lunch or dinner, and have a gander.

And now, I gotta go be helped back to my bunk by my woookie friend because... I feel terrible.

Inktober 2014: 31 Ghosts!

In addition to 'Characters Of The Night', which is Character Of The Day's month-long celebration of all things spooky, this year I'm participating in #inktober, a drawing challenge you've probably seen mentioned all over Instagram and Twitter.

Inktober isn't necessarily a spooky event, but I wanted my Inktober drawings to have a theme that could tie in to 'Characters Of The Night', so I based it off one of my favourite cheesy ghost movies: '13 Ghosts' (the original, not the remake - ghost lion in the basement yo!). Except, of course, 31 days in October means expanding it to 31 ghosts! A different ghost drawing every day, in terrifying black and white... in celebration of all things October, all things Inktober and everything ghost!

Here's the first!
