I may or may not be able to finish the cartoon I was working on for today (unforeseen circumstances have been... unforeseen). In case I'm not able to post later tonight, I can offer this series of pics for the moment. They show the basic steps of drawing yesterday's Pupkin and Ghost piece.

It goes like this: 1) draw a thumbnail in pencil, to get your head around the basic idea of what goes where 2) draw a full size (8x10") scribbly version 3) use a light table to trace and refine a tighter pencil version, this one in heavy weight (140 lb.) Arches hot press watercolour paper 4) ink it up. I generally use lots of different pens, but for this one, just three: Noodlers flex pen, Pentel brush pen and a 107 mapping point. Ink is Speedball 'Super Black' India ink. 5) That's the same ink used for the tonal wash. And the orange and yellow are watercolour touches added last. May the spooks be with you. See you again soon!

I hate to do this to you, but here’s another post for this evening. Over on Instagram, I’ve been trying to keep @charactersoftheday and @charactersofthenight separate... but we’re inching into the spookin’ season and the veil between worlds grows thin. Here is what I’m trying to say: while Characters Of The Day contends with new spooky cartoons this month, Characters Of The Night will be plagued with... ghosts! I’m attempting (again) ‘31 Ghosts’... 31 black and white ghost character designs, one for each day of the month. Will I be able to do it this year, or will I die trying? Only one way to find out.

Here is the first of the 31 spooks to visit you this October... Spider-Wed!

And so begins Characters Of The Night! An entire month of all-new spooky, scary and downright disturbing cartoons! Thank you for considering to accompany us on this journey into the dark. No one can say for certain what gloomy avenues COTN will find itself winding along this year, but the crystal ball has foreseen this much: it will end with my death (!)... and an expression of one of my greatest fears. (Disclaimer: cartoon death. I’m not trying to needlessly worry anyone... much.)

Sept. 27, 2018 - Pupkin and Ghost (feat. Jackoons, Octobear, Hallowing)

Our intrepid trick-or-treaters and where they were last seen. Will they be back this Hallowe’en season? Are they even okay? The only way to find out is to watch this space! Characters Of The Night takes over Characters Of The Day in just a few days!
