This is so well done - scary the way the skull pops out of the page from the spider webbing in the background! Nice work!

"Pretty Punkin" - Quick acrylic on canvas, not exactly halloween, but ...... my first pumpkin. Who knows, maybe a friendly witch will turn it into something spectacular    :)

I'm pretty sure I remember yours too Marguerite! This is one scary guy and I don't want to see him at my door on Halloween night! Great piece of artwork :-)

What fun! Here's one I did a few years back. It's done on ArtAgain black paper in pastel.

Thanks Daryll and Karen for liking my scary clown. Much appreciated! :-)

Nice job everyone!

I've been in love with Halloween since I was a small child and got into the Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico when I started hearing about them as an adult.  I've hosted several mail art shows on Dia de los Muertos and I am always doing Halloween photo series, Day of the Dead artwork, and all kinds of things in that vein.  This is one I did day before yesterday as part of my InkTober 2016 drawing challenge (day 27's prompt was 'creepy').  I especially love the way that snake seems so real (I love snakes and lizards - may have something to do with furry pets giving me hives and breathing problems due to severe allergies).  We had a 5 foot long Indigo snake in the house when I was little and I cried like a baby when it slithered off one night and never came back (we didn't keep it caged).  I used to like to sleep with it curled all around me!  lol
