Here is my contribution to the challenge. The awesomeness that was Merle Dixon from The Walking Dead in all his undead (alive?) glory :D

looks like i took too long to think of a subject. maybe i could post the vine i'm working on. yeah, that's alive for sure! is october her yet? oh it is in australia but not in the us yet! it's the morning of wednesday the 1st of october her!. too cool.

trying too hard - i've had dreadful trouble with wax bloom, unable to get my drawing together, grrr. anyhoo i thought i'd post this. i finished it off with markers to hide the bloom. so many layers of cp. too much work me thinks. i'll put it down to experience. i am learning so much by making loads of mistakes!. lol

Fall is so full of color and change. Makes my heart sing!  Inktense and watercolor. 

 Awesome job everyone!
