This scarecrow sketch is the first of my October Halloween sketches. Scarecrows are placed in fields by farmers to discourage crows and other birds from eating recently cast seed. Somehow they became attached to the popular imagery of the holiday of Halloween. I sketched my drawing looking at a picture my brother took of a scarecrow in Michigan.
This is my drawing of a priestess in some dark dangerous jungle. She is caring a torch to light her way. I was influenced by the countless episodes of, “Lost” I watched. They sure enjoyed caring torches around on that show. I am going to post some scary and or spook drawing for the rest of October. Halloween is just around the corner.
As a kid I experienced a fascination with the ocean that will last throughout my lifetime. This is yet another drawing of an old diving suit. The drawing is an improvement of a sketch I did for a client, many years ago. The original version of this drawing was one of the first illustrations I ever had published.
