My new portfolio is now up on childrensillustrators.com. Yay! I think Janet picked out a nice selection. It shows a wide range of styles.
I’m a little busy today, so something super simple this time.
It had a tombstone in the image, so I had to figure out something to write on it. I had to give her a name. So, I called her Carrie Ann Black. Carrie Ann. Carrion. Get it? I always thought Carrie Ann would be a great name for a ghoul. And Black because Death was named Black in Meet Joe Black.
IN LOVING MEMORY OF
CARRIE ANN BLACK

She was so beloved, she was even born on Valentine’s Day. And her death was such a horror, it had to happen on Halloween.
I’m not sure if she’s a zombie or a vampire. Some sort of undead, surely. She looks rather un-rotted for a zombie, but maybe she was just well-embalmed. I dunno.
I wonder if Mr. Black will be pleased to have her back?
Katie thinks maybe her husband is Death, like in the movie, so he wouldn’t mind her being dead. She’s very optimistic.
This one’s a lot ickier than I usually draw. But it’s a zombie. They’re inherently pretty icky. I think I’ll have to do something cute for tomorrow to wash the zombie stink off my stylus.
Here’s a bat for Inktober #2.
