Illustration Friday: Ghost


Mmmmm. Ghosts. A topic I really like. This is one of my favorite ghost paintings that I did a very long time ago. It is small and simple but I still like it. Strange, my mom still doesn't get it.

Also I've been lucky to be able to do a whole bunch of ghosty books with Scholastic. I've done 2 series. I just finished the 17th book of GHOSTVILLE ELEMENTARY by Marcia Thornton Jones & Debbie Dadey and I've done 4 covers for GHOSTHUNTERS by Cornelia Funke. Any job that involves ghosts and goulies is fun. Here are a few examples. You can go here to see more Ghostville Elementary or Ghosthunters.

So are you going to send Dave Letterman the picture you drew of him in your Gallery O' Terror? Inquiring minds want to know.

Haha! The fridge was great! I like implied objects in illustrations, and this one fits well into that criteria..

(Maybe your mom is pretending not to know about the ghost.)
