Getting into the spirit of Halloween in the sketchbook today and National Cat Day yesterday.
This is from my favorite movie growing up, Bell, Book and Candle.
I even had a cat named Pyewacket (I spelled it wrong though as Piewacket). She was not a Siamese but was memorable for her desire to kill all humans or at least stick her claws in them.
My husband and I have become HUGE Game of Thrones fans. Our friend Jennifer introduced us to the books several years ago and we listened to all the audiobooks (great for long road trips).
I also love the Inn at the Crossroads site where they create recipes based on the books. At this year’s April 1st HBO premiere, we had a pot-luck dinner where everyone referenced recipes from their cookbook or medieval ones. It was good fun.
This is an odd idea that struck me. When I described it to Troy, he said the idea was not funny. Maybe I described it badly (I hope).
I have always been a big fan of Peanuts comics, although despite a big licensing push lately with the property, I have wondered how kids these days feel about the strip. They recently re-branded the local amusement park with Peanuts characters from the cool Nickelodeon ones. It seemed like an odd choice… Do kids really like or get Sopwith Camel jokes? I see they are working on a movie for 2015. I am curious how it will be received after reboots of comics like Tin-Tin. (A comic I also love…)
Anyway, it works great with Game of Thrones… Right? Right?!
This Year of the Dragon thing NEVER gets old! Anyway, here is my cat Spike getting into the holiday spirit. I may make little wings for him… Next up, Game of Pumpkins!
As I mentioned in the last post, I am posting some homages to Halloween in the Year of the Dragon culminating in my one-pager, Game of Pumpkins.
Then it is back to Fairy Godfather. The next pages are very exciting in that one.
