Halloween 2009 - Martha Stewart Crafts / Group 2

Products for Martha Stewart Crafts. Classic Halloween theme with pumpkins, witches, owls, trees, birds and rats. I had a great time drawing these icons, the witch scenes, and working on the style guide. But, drawing the seamless spooky tree and bird pattern for the paper pack took FOREVER! The owl on the branch and jack-o-lantern are favorites of mine. 

Available at Michael's Crafts (but I hear they are disappearing quickly!) And they seem to be sold out online--so, no links at them moment!

Martha Stewart Crafts Halloween products with my illustrations are starting to be available online at
two peas in a bucket. I'll be posting them in groups. Here is the first group that is mad scientist style. I painted the skull and crossbones icon, fixed up old etchings of the spider, moth, other skull and skeleton + set custom type, created design elements based on old apothecary labels and drew the silhouettes of branches and birds.

Travel Blog

As usual, life has come before blogging. Kari and I are on an old fashioned Victorian tour of Europe. I've been wanting to post images + sketches from my travels abroad-- but wasn't entirely convinced they fit in with art blob (especially since there are going to be a lot of images) So.... I have a new travel blog! Art blob will remain the place for new work + general updated about Kari + I. Thanks, and hope to see you on tiny sketch!
