In other news, Hurricane Sandy is working her way up towards New England and should be hitting us Monday night and Tuesday. I hope we don't get ripped up like we did last year by Hurricane Irene.

If you would like me to draw something for you, send me an email with what you would like and I will create it for you. I will also be offering a package where you can purchase (I haven't set a price value yet) group of 5 drawings and you won't know what you are going to get until you receive the drawings in the mail. Let me know your thoughts about this idea.

Good luck with the storm and have a happy halloween!

One A Week Art Project 29 of 52- Be the ghost you want to be.

Sticking with the ghost theme for my One a Week art Project: 29 of 52- Be the ghost you want to be.

It's the best time of year, the cool crisp nights are back and the warm days are gone. The trees look like they are on fire and it's almost Halloween. Trick or Treaters will be coming around soon with a ton of very creative costumes.

I think one of the most under rated costumes is the ghost. It's a classic and has to be the first costume right? Anyway, this drawing is about a ghost wanting to become better than he is. Everyone has to have goals right?

What's a Photographic Time Capsule?

A photographic time capsule is a custom photo collage of a bunch of photos that you would like in once place. It's a great way keep memories alive from all of your life moments.

Here is a photo from a collage I recently finished. I blurred the faces to keep my clients anonymous, but if you can manage to look past that, it came out really nice!

This was a given as a wedding gift to the bride and groom and from what I heard, they loved it!
