Cor! Fantastic Matt, has a real Ardizonne feel to it, and delicous linework.

I'd be angry too if someone hung me on a wall. Very wonderful illustration. Perfect for getting me in the Halloween mood.

Funny idea, I agree with that =)

Ok, I'm completely creeped out! Behind you! Look. Behind. You! Great, great drawing. I also enjoyed your other work immensely. I shall be back for more. :)

wonderful!

Fantactic! Love the dark atmosphere here and the contrast of the bright (and wondefully expressive) pumpkin :)

NuMi Bera said...

It is drawn in a very charming way and still...

I specially like the pumpkin! :)

I'm not very keen on dolls and puppets, specially when they move by themselves. Even the toymaker painting in red!

Great-great composition!

Thanks, everybody! Gretel, you get the gold star for the use of the exclamation "cor!" (and thank you for the Ardizonne comment).

Jennifer said...

Awesome drawing! What kind of medium did you use? It looks like color pencils or pastels....

matt said...

Hey, Jennifer. This is a black and white pencil drawing, with color added in photoshop. Then I scanned in a blank sheet of brown drawing paper and placed that below the drawing to give it a bit of texture. Glad you like it!
