H is for Halloween

I'll get back to the Harry Potter stuff next week.

This being the week of All Hallow's Eve, or Halloween to all you sellouts, I thought I'd share this piece I made for a friend of mine.

He's a school teacher collecting alphabet art for his classroom (A is for Aquaman etc.) and requested I make him one for Halloween. Here's what I came up with.

For the little trick-or-treaters, I decided to use some original characters that have been bouncing around in my head for a couple of years but never really made their way to paper. I'll introduce you to them as I develop them more later on.

Hopefully my friend liked this, as I hope you do too. Happy Halloween!

Chamber of Secrets - Harry Potter

At one point, I thought it would be fun to draw a bunch of characters from "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." The idea was to draw these, and then, after a year, I would draw characters from the next book in the Harry Potter series. Over time, I could look back at all of the Harry Potter characters and see how my drawings (hopefully) improved from year to year with the same characters.

I started this little "project" back in 2010, and here we are nearing the end of 2012... so I didn't exactly stay on target with the once a year idea. Surprise. But it's still something I think would be fun.

So finally, here's my take on the characters from "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets!" Heading up the lineup is, of course, the titular boy who lived, Harry.

I plan on doing 8 of these and then, like with Sorcerer's Stone, design disc labels for the audio book.

Stay tuned. More to come.
