It’s Halloween Week Grey-Ghosters!

Ghoul Morning Grey-Ghosters!
It’s Halloween Week! Boo! Believe it or not, I did ‘carve’ out some time this weekend to work on a few scenes of TJKM just before I pulled out the knifes and REALLY got carving! I usually go for the classic triangle eyes and jagged smile approach but this year the Cara house wanted something a little more goolie on their jack-o-lantern so to honor our favorite horror host and friend of the book, Svengoolie I present the ‘Sven-O-Lantern’! I then pulled out the iPad and and put together the ‘GreyGhost-O-Lantern’! LOL! Hey and if you think my carving abilities are scary, just think if of this, if Tennessee had beat Alabama this weekend I would’ve had to honor a bet with one of the members of Team Grey Ghost and put bright orange and white checker boards all over this page! Wow talk about Scary!!!!
Remember kiddies you can download your own Grey Ghost Halloween mask at the Oct 13 post link below. Trick or treat in style this year!

Trick-or-Treat Grey-Ghosters!

Trick-or-Treat Grey-Ghosters (What too early? LOL)

I made sure over the long weekend to put the nose to the grindstone and get back to work on the sequel! I actually (FINALLY!) finished the one section I’ve been laboring on for a few weeks, and all I can tell you was it was difficult to keep it from being really ‘dark’ but that’s not how I like to roll as they say so I kept at it until we brought the story back into the light a little :-)
I also was given a really fun idea over the weekend that I thought you might all get a kick out of!

Don’t know what to dress up as this Halloween? How about going as our lovable hero, The Grey Ghost! Here is you own personal Grey Ghost Halloween mask to scare your neighbors and trick-or-treaters with in a few weeks. Included in the link below is a .pdf that prints well in landscape. (Size it to your our face as you will)

 

A few snips with the scissors and maybe a rubber-band and you too can dress like our favorite hero! Have fun with it Grey-Ghosters, but don’t egg anyone’s house while wearing it! (Especially Mine!)

The Grey Ghost goes Art Deco!

Good Morning Grey-Ghosters!
I’ll be honest and say a little less writing got done this weekend then expected. But I did get my Art on! LOL Last week I was really inspired by the work of artist Bradley Beard when I saw a piece he sent to friend of the book Svengoolie of his chicken sidekick Kerwyn. I just loved the coloring and old school simplicity of his work that I had to try it out for myself on our own mascot, or as my mom calls him Little Grey. Let’s say I got lucky to get it half as nice as Brad’s work but I simply love how it came out! The only thing I couldn’t figure out was the best background color to go with so here are ALL of them :-) -You pick your favorite and let me know! mine right now is the blue. I did remember that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so I made a special ‘PINK’ version that I’m going to use as my profile picture for majority of the month. Thanks to Mr. Beard for the inspiration and definitely check out his work Grey-Ghosters, (especially the old school Universal monster pieces) at the link below!
