I was concerned a jack o'lantern by itself might make for a boring illustration, but is this guy boring? I don't think so!
A collection of spooky Halloween eyes:
On to the 2nd alphabet: Halloween and "A is for apparition." I have to confess, every day I'm mildly panicked at the prospect of actually coming up with a piece that I'm proud to share, and yet, so far, I've managed to pull it off every day for the last 27 days. Maybe I can really do this. When I started this daily challenge, it was just to challenge myself to make something every day and post it for the world (or at least my family) to see. I quickly realized it would be a great way to develop collections of art for licensing, and of course, holidays are huge in the world of art licensing. The monster alphabet was a great place to start; I feel like it was something of a warm-up, proof to myself that I could stick with a daily art-making plan, and I'm pretty excited to be starting on this Halloween collection.
As I go along, I'm going to write more about what I'm learning about art licensing; I've found some really great resources, and I'm going to start sharing those, as well as chronicling my journey toward building a licensing portfolio and becoming a licensed artist. Stayed tuned!
