EDM Challenge: Draw What You Think of When You Hear the Word October

Six years ago, when our first grandchild was born, I bought a very small Halloween book from the holiday table at Barnes and Noble.  It is shaped like this pumpkin, outlined in black, and the front cover is made from very soft velour and then stuffed.  It is a favorite with each one of our grandchildren - probably based on size, texture, color and a very simple story of children "trick or treating."  It remains in our book cabinet all year and is enjoyed by them regardless of the season.  The bat, witch's hat, black cat, and ghost are images I sketched from the book illustrations.  The vertical black lines are another experiment in varying the backgrounds of my drawings

I don't know what number this EDM Challenge is - #245 or 246 depending on whether the Free Choice last week was assigned a number.

The grandkids will have fun seeing their old storybook in your journal.

My thoughts the same! Well... I love eating a little more so i thought about cakes instead. But I would love to learn how to carve a pumpkin. I've never really celebrated halloween before, and next year will be my first real celebration, and I'd want to create something of course!
Happy Halloween in advance!

Thanks for the kind comments on my blog. I am really enjoying adding the sketching to my artwork. It is really fun. It is something I can do 15 min before going to sleep at night.

Very fun celebration of Halloween!
