Some schools have banned this fine holiday and are calling it Black and Orange day. Which is the stupidest. Call it Costume Day if you must, and then let the children PLAY for the sake of pete! Wearing two colours, and getting dressed up in elaborate costumes as anyone you like including dark things like monsters IS NOT THE SAME and one is WAY better.
Rant over. In honour of this day, I did a little warm-up drawing of my friend Katie, who keeps the Halloween spirit alive all year round (Literally. It is her Christmas, and she has Halloween cups and plates and tea towels, etc. that she uses all year round). She also loves gum and bunnies so I made her this:
This isn’t even close to festive. In fact it’s overdue in many ways. I made this bunny pattern for my friend who loves the bunnies, gave it to her for her birthday well over a year ago (where she got drunk and lost the print at the bar). She asked for another (it’s a mere digital print so nbd), and today, like 18 months later I am doing it. Have done it. A person could conceive, gestate and birth a new human, and teach it our language in the same amount of time it took me to go click, click, click, change some printer cartridges, then click, click, click again. Buzz buzz buzz and there you have a digital print. But I guess some people are just productive. (me)
Here’s the print.
Hilariously, it’s a pretty sparse pattern to wait so very long for, but it’s moving away from home for the first time tomorrow, so I have to love it as it is and send it on it’s way. *sniff* They grow up so fast.
