Oh what the hay, Halloween only comes once a year, so I decided to whip up some PDF coloring sheets. There's two designs included here: the pumpkin celebrants (above) and the mysterious lady (below). Happy coloring!

I haven't had a chance to create anything eerie or terrifying for the season, sadly. Assorted projects, "Alfred" and various other things are claiming my attention at the moment. But, fear not (or fear if you want to, I mean, it is October). In the archives here, one can find:
A little something for All Hallows' Eve. Hope your plans tonight involve something seasonally apropos. I caught a showing of Nosferatu the other night (CREEPY) and I'm currently imbibing pumpkin flavored coffee (DELICIOUS), so it's safe to say I'm feeling sufficiently October 31'ish at the moment.
Hey, hey, October! Because Halloween's 'round the corner, here's a free printable for some spooky stickers. I've sized them to fit Avery's sticker paper, but you can always print them out on regular paper and glue them to what have you. These could also be fun printed on fabric transfer paper, added to t-shirts, trick-or-treat bags, etc. In short, have fun and enjoy!

Happy All Hallow's Eve! I made a comic for today and you can read it over here.
Hope you have a happy (and safe) October 31st. It's grey, drizzly and cold here (in short: gross). So in light of that forecast, I raise my chocolate bar to you, intrepid trick or treaters of this fair nation.
Because there isn't enough Halloween in my sketchbook at the moment. But to be totally honest, I don't think I ever ran around All Hallow's Eve with just a cardigan. Show of hands, who else designed their costumes to fit over a winter coat? I distinctly remember Halloween '88 being the only pirate in history to wear a turquoise parka.
And jumping forward a few months, I have a quick survey. I've had a few people ask if I've ever thought of offering a calendar and I've been mulling the idea over. Is that the sort of thing other people would be interested in?
I made Halloween cards for my nieces and nephew last weekend and midway through starting thinking this would make for a nifty tutorial. Ergo, here's a how-to for making your own seasonally apropos felines.
Tutorial after the jump.
- Download a template (with folding directions) here.
- Trace template to black construction paper and cut out.
- You can start drawing at this point, or fold the card first. I folded first, just because it makes it easier to see what elements fall above or below the ridges.
- Thread needle and bring twine from back of card to the front. Tape twine to backside of cat. Repeat on both sides of the cat's face, near the mask.
- To finish, fold up the cat and tie twine behind the head.
- Voila! You're ready to spread some Halloween cheer.
