Happy Halloween!

This design is on garden flags available at Maynards stores across the country. I hope you enjoy some witch's brew this Halloween!

Jack-O-Lanterns are the ultimate Halloween symbol and this little group is huddled around a favorite chair to spend a frightful night. This design can be found on a garden flag manufactured by Toland Home Garden. You can purchase it here.

Thanksgiving card

I fist did this design for a garden flag project with the theme of Autumn. Greeting card company Design Design, Inc. has licensed it for a Thanksgiving/Autumn card. The dark silhouette areas of the design have a leather texture that works really well for the season. You can order the card here.

Little Bits of the Season

Just some small bit and pieces. Halloween is so rich with imagery and color that it makes an illustrator's life easy and quite enjoyable.

Halloween Plates

These Halloween inspired designs are from a paper partyware project a while ago. I love using the color black and Halloween is one of the few occasions where it's ok to use it in excess if you so choose. I am in the mood to buy a pumpkin now!

Ahh, to be a kid again!

Halloween was always one of my favorite holidays as a youngster. Dressing up in crazy costumes and getting free candy... what's not to like?! It was sometimes cold and rainy, but always really fun and we stayed up really late sorting and trading our candy treasure. The ghost on a bike image is available as a garden flag produced by Toland Home and Garden and available here. The ghost juggling candy corn is still waiting to be licensed onto products.

Scary Cute!

I had a great time painting these Halloween cards for kids a couple of years ago published by Sunrise Greetings. Dogs and cats dressed up in classic Halloween attire works every time. I hope you are enjoying the fall season!
