I created this illustration with pen and ink. Today is officially the first day of autumn. Fall is my favorite season of the year. The days have finally started to cool down. Soon the leaves will be turning. There is something mysterious and thrilling about the clear brisk days of autumn, particularly in my native State of Michigan. I love all the signs of fall, the sounds of the Canadian geese overhead, the first frost, the pumpkins and cider. My favorite holiday is coming, Halloween. I’ll post some more Halloween illustrations in the next few weeks.
