This year is the 10th year of 13 Nights of Halloweens. I cannot believe I have been doing this for a decade!
To celebrate such a momentous year I have chosen this years theme to be Star Wars!!
I am so excited about the new movie. It looks so good.
This series is not speed paintings, they are full finished paintings. Don't give me more credit than is due.
I am not sure what I thought I was going to accomplish 10 years ago when I started this. I just wanted to see if I could be successful making 2D art. I could not say what I thought success was then. I am sure it involved me working freelance or for myself. I can say I accomplished bits and pieces of that here and there. What I found enjoyable for me was imagining myself as a a kid and going back in time and showing my younger self these pictures. I think the kid would have been impressed.
I may not hold a torch to many of the illustrators working today. But I think I have been successful making artwork much like the art I enjoyed as a kid.
That gives me a great sense of accomplishment.
So thanks again for joining me for another year. This maybe the last one
But it has been memorable. Every year something new and fun
