Messing with the Beistle Halloween stuff again. It’s a pleasant exercise.



Not different enough, but fun. Maybe I’ll tinker some more.

Pretty? Really?

Well...we know it was pink. But was it pretty?

Also, why did she never say THE prom? But I think we all know how Stef ended up on “The Blacklist.”

I had a little bit of a draw-er’s block the other day. I really wanted to draw, but nothing was working. (And, yes, when I say “draw,” I mean on the computer.) I tried drawing one thing but it came out looking like another and...I just wasn’t feeling it. But I had this idea that I HAD to draw some Halloween images. So I did what everyone does and I googled Halloween and I came across the classic Beistle Halloween cutouts that those of a certain age remember from their youth. They were vintage when I was a kid but now they are cool vintage.

You remember this, don’t you?

So I decided to redraw it, making it a little And I came up with this...

And I like it. It’s a little more me. But then I thought it was still too much them.
So I tried again...

Hmmm...closer. But still needs some work. The nice thing though, is that it fixed my block and made me feel like drawing.

That's no moon!

I would like to point out that my college education has not gone to waste. This is more or less historically accurate as far as shape, flourishes, nevermind. There is nothing accurate here. My costuming professor would say I took creative liberties. And then he would say that a good costume designer always does. Maybe.
