SCARY: Illustration Friday

I didn't have the time to do more than a line pencil drawing for the assigned word this week, so this is it. The idea popped into my mind after helping my daughter, Katy, to decorate her house this Halloween. She has some very scary animated witches and ghosts - topped off by the towering Grim Reaper, and she put them ALL around. I was surprised when I witnessed her 15 month old baby girl giggle when she got close to any of them! .... versus my grandsons, who ran screaming for shelter when they were her age! "I don't want Delaney to be afraid of them, so I make it like they're funny when they do their scary thing." she explained..... and it worked! So, the idea of drawing a tough little fairy princess standing up to the howling ghost sort of captured that scenario for me.

That's a great scene! Great details in the princess outfit, and the extra spook peering out the blinds. This sort of pencil sketch would be a great coloring page (for any age). Oh nice, the ghost has sneakers!

So cute! Your illustrations are fabulous and tell the story beautifully. The "Delaney" character is adorable. I sure enjoyed spending Halloween with you and the whole gang. Feel truly blessed to have you as my friend and family. :)

Too much!!!!! This is one of my faves ;) Oh, and for the record, I believe your youngest grandson went face to face with that scary howling bulgy eyed man in the crystal ball!! But the other two, screamed their heads off!!
