These carvings are part of the Halloween Festivities they have at Disneyland. The carnival is cute and fun for kids. This celebration is not at all gory and you get to see your favorite pals in their costumes. If you can, go you should.

Party City has some really cute costumes and Disneyland has a really cute Anna and Elsa Costume….oh I should have taken a picture of them.

I am going to try pumpkin carving this weekend. What is your favorite childhood costume?

Halloween Handlettering

So there I was waiting for the light to change and then I noticed a guy who had painted Happy Halloween on a window storefront. He also painted some Halloween inspired bats…and I forgot what else but I thought hey, what a cool job and an amazing example of the demand for hand lettering! I wish I could do that. What kind of paints did he use? What a cool example of how you can put your work out there. I have been practicing my art and I am coming along. I also recently found out that one of the bloggers I follow has her items in American Eagle Outfitters stores. What another awesome example that my dreams can come true. I mean I have always loved making birthday cards with big block letters and drawing patterns and who knew I could make a career of it. One can draw for animation, street signs, store signs, magazines, logo design, children’s books and so much more.   If you have any Hand lettering advice please comment below.

Wish I could have taken a picture of the Halloween store but here is a picture of the items.  They are by Wit and Whistle.

If you have tried or will be buying any of these new products let me know.

My latest attempt at drawing and water coloring. Have any tips or supplies I should try? Then let me know. I am looking for a water color brush pen and am thinking I should stick to an old fashioned watercoloring set by Talens.

Yes the resolution is not right, I am learning how to take my drawings and convert them to digital art.

Have a sweet day!

How many days till Halloween?

Is it me or does the time seem like it is going fast. Sometimes it feels this way and other times it goes okay. Anyway I have been thinking about what I love about Halloween. I do love Halloween but not in the zombie horror aspect. What I love most is seeing kids dressed up in their favorite superhero or princess. These days a princess can also be a hero.

Here is my top ten list about Halloween

1. Dress Up.

3. A DIY decor opportunity

I love to see decorations and decorating is fun too.

4. The haunted mansion at Disneyland. This is the only one I will go in and it is where two holidays collide.

5. Schools and libraries have parades where kids can proudly walk and show off their Ninja Turtles costume. Love the smiles.

6……not sure

What do you love about Halloween?

To be someone else for a day…

I love this part of Halloween. You can dress up as anyone you want to be like a princess, a queen or a superhero. I love seeing children dress up. Who do you want to be? This brings me to a question. What do I want to be right now? What is the one dream I want to realize. Yes it is my art but for some strange reason I keep going back to a crazy idea of writing a children’s book.
