About 5 or 6 years ago I was sitting in this coffee shop with my sketchbook and this image pops into my head. It was very clear what the image was. I think I scribbled for an hour and a half till I got it down on paper. I wasn't thinking about the old Hardy Boys books I had as a kid but I'm sure they have been rattling around in my nogan for many a year. I had to make it into a painting and show it to the world. It ended up being one of my promo postcards that I send out in the mail. It got me a book cover for a young adult novel.
This is the first in a long line of Halloween images that I will be posting over the next 2 weeks. Stay tuned and be spooky!
