Drawlloween -Werewolf

#mabsdrawlloweenclub2017 #artforsale 5″x7″ #pencil on 98lb #cansonpaper UPDATE- SOLD This was the first drawlloween I sketched out, but it I’ve only just now finished her. I love monstrous women. This is no doubt because of my own experiences as a young woman of average prettiness, but with many undesirable qualities. Getting dumped for being poor, having a volatile family with ambiguous…

Drawlloween -Grumpy Owl

Just a fun sketch today. Happy Saturday! I know he was a barn #owl in the movie, but I wanted him to still look a little like #davidbowie . Labyrinth and Legend were on perma play when I was a kid and a teen. So obsessed! 

Drawlloween -Ghost

#pencil on 98lb #cansonpaper $20+ shipping. Email me at nouvellegamine@gmail.com if interested. Originally, I was going to draw a lady ghost. Something reminiscent of Kate Bush if she appeared in Oingo Boingo’s, “Heard Somebody Cry.” But somewhere along the line I started thinking about “La Belle Dame Sans Merci,” by Keats. I’ve had drawings sketched out and drawn for…

Drawlloween -Creepy Twins

“Vertigo” #artforsale SOLD 5″x7″ #pencil and green ink. 98lb #cansonpaper email me at nouvellegamine@gmail.com if interested. I’ve already done the Grady twins for another #drawlloween prompt, so I decided on #Vertigo . Granted they’re not technically twins, but I think that it could be argued that it’s a case of #haunting and #doppelgangers. The underlying theme of possession, first from Carlotta, and then Madeleine is fascinating….

Drawlloween -Witch

“The Witch” 5″x7″ Pencil on 98 lb Canson paper. SOLD I didn’t get to post her yesterday because I was working on a commission, but I was able to finish her up this morning. I was reading a book recently about #witches and their #animal#familiars, which became the inspiration for this picture. “Witches, Werewolves, and Fairies: Shapeshifters and…

Drawlloween -Bride of Frankenstein

“When Lightning Strikes” 5″x7″ SOLD #mabsdrawlloweenclub#drawlloween #drawlloween2017#frankenstein #brideoffrankenstein This was the prompt I was most excited about. I’ve been drawing the Bride since I was a kid. I’ve even seen the 80s movie with Sting and Jennifer Beals way too many times. I’ve also included a nod to the #scarystories of the girl with the red ribbon around her neck….

Drawlloween -Munsters

“Graveyard Lily” 5″x7″ -SOLD #pencildrawing #mabsdrawlloweenclub#drawlloween #munsters Here’s Lily Munster with her white stripes and her coffin shaped black lace. When I was a kid, tv was so good. Reruns provided weird kids with a treasure trove to constantly dig into. “Bewitched,” “I Dream of Jeannie,” “The Addams Family,” and “The Munsters” were on daily and usually the weekends…

Drawlloween -Black Lagoon

“Eat, Prey, Glub”  5″x7″ – SOLD #pencildrawing#mabsdrawlloweenclub #drawlloween Even Creaturas need a day (night?) by the water with their beach read. I LOVE Universal monster films. I’ve been playing them for the kids whenever I can this month. So many of them are really sad. From the tragedy of the Wolfman, Frankenstein’s Monster and the Bride, The Mummy,…

Drawlloween -Grim Reaper

“Mr. Tod Asks For Dance” #grimreaper 5″x7″ $20 + shipping. Email me at nouvellegamine@gmail.com if interested. #pencildrawing #mabsdrawlloweenclub#drawlloween As I mentioned in the wip (down below), I wasn’t planning on doing this one. I don’t actually like drawing skeletons very much. But what I do like is Medievalism. And a sizable portion of that is images of the…

Drawlloween -Mothman

“#Mothman” #pencildrawing 5″x7″ $20 + shipping. Email me at nouvellegamine@gmail.com if interested.   #mabsdrawlloweenclub #drawlloween#drawlloween2017 “Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.”- Zhuangzi Like everyone else, I fell in love with Death’s Head moths courtesy of Silence of the Lambs…

Drawlloween -Vampire

“Strix” #pencil 5″x7″ SOLD #mabsdrawlloweenclub #drawlloween My lady has risen from her tomb with her grave flowers still in her hair. In folklore there isn’t a very clear distinction between a #vampire, a #witch, or a #werewolf . They were all malevolent nocturnal beings. And frequently someone who was a witch in life could easily shift between being a werewolf and a…
