So...I've been working hard on doing some spot art for a middle grade chapter book I've written.
While I was looking for inspiration (and lots and lots of courage), I re-discovered Lynda Barry's book, One Hundred Demons. Barry is very in touch with her coming-of-age years, and shares stories/memories of the changes (and pain) that she went through. I love her art, and the pseudo-scrapbook feel of this book. I also loved the idea of sitting down and drawing demons.
Here are some demons that I drew:
( Maybe she's the demon of the popular girl who isn't very nice to others :)
(Possibly the demon that tells me to buy lottery tickets because I'm sure to win.)
(Looks like the demon of over-indulgence to me. Christmas fudge with walnuts.)
(Seriously, I have no idea. I worry about myself sometimes.)
And on a cheery Fall holiday note - here are some Halloween decorations at my house!
I hope you're all enjoying some cooler weather, and please tell me that you have a pumpkin or two at your house. Don't make me come over there and drop one off. Pumpkins, people!
