I'll be posting the theme for the December and final months theme of 2012 very shortly so stay tuned.
I finally got home today after trying to Christmas shop, seeing the math and aftermath of a manslaughter on Nassau street and then waiting an hour-and-a-half in the rain for a bus that never came. In the end I got a taxi and boy was I glad to be home. There's no place like it.
Move over Casper there is only room in this world for one Cute Ghost and it ain't you!!!
A massive congrats goes out to Aine McGuinness for her fantastic Ghostly Animation. She walked away with her very own copy of "The Art of Paranorman" and a "Dunny" collectable. Not forgetting our runners up. In joint second place we have Nick Lennox andLouise Skinnader and following close after was Sophia Daly all with gorgeous submissions.
Thanks again everyone for the work you have put in, really fantastic pieces. New theme will be posted very shortly.
This is Seb T Buckerbat The First....he is a Transylvania White Horn Bobbing Bat, very rare species of Bat. He flew in my window lastnight after getting caught in a storm and got thrown off course. He will be staying for a few days and turns out he is a big fan of Dallas!!!
My gorgeous little niece and nephew from Melbourne, Australia mailed these to me over the weekend as they know their Auntie Gillybean loves to see their artwork. I thought it would be nice to pop them up for you guys to see. They did such a brilliant job!
This is Isabelles Frankenstein Spider Monster, notice her name hidden very well in amoung the spiderwebs.
This is Ryans Frankenstein Spider Monster, funnily enough they didn't intend on doing the same type of drawing it just ended up that way....spooky or what!!!
Thank you my little Munchkins. Brilliant work by you both xx.
I read that the reason that we go Guising dates back to when Christians believed that spirits leaving the earth for the other world on Hallows Eve would pay one last vengeful visit to any living person who had done them wrong. So the unfortunate victim would try and confuse the spirit by disguising themselves, like this poor fella.... (I've also been watching Fantasia)
So Halloween is coming up and I know one person who'll be more excited than most. So here's a shout out to our resident horror fanatic miss Louise Skinnader. Piss take of the recently released horror Sinister just in case anyone doesn't get it.
So This is My entry for this months blog...Which is "All Hallows Eve".Since The western premiere of Randy Cunningham 9th Grade Ninja has come out I thought I might draw the Evil Sorcerer!But he looks a lot like Voldemort!
Hey look there's Randy!
Hope you guys like the entry!!SECOND ENTRY!!WOO!
The new theme for the month of October could only be "Halloween". We were gonna pick a specific spooky theme but there were too many deadly ideas knockin about so this way you can really interpret it to suit yourself. We had Werewolves to Slasher movies to the Supernatural Zombie Apocalypse' so how could we decide really????
The prize for this one is EXTRA special and will be decided before the Halloween extravagnaza Fancy Dress Party!
Remeber: you can enter as many pieces as you like, be as crazy as you like, use whatever media you like. Can't wait to see what you guys come up with....It's gonna be a good one, I can tell.
He did this with a broken collar bone injury and all....his heroes would be well proud. Nice jobMick Plummerfor being the winner of last month "Childhood Heroes". It was a very close call with just one vote between them. So congradulations to Aine McGuinnessand Manuela Gualtieri for their great pieces too. We are not forgetting the rest of you either great work everyone and thanks a million for posting each month.
Oh and an extra special thank you for our youngest EVER blogger Jonah. Great stuff little man.
I asked Santa for a suprise one year and when I came downsatirs Christmas morning there was Fievel sitting on the side of the couch waiting for me.
I honestly nearly choked I was so happy. Best present I ever got in my life. After seeing an American Tail I was obsessed. I brought Fievel everywhere, still have him!!!
So while I was working on this months theme (which I never managed to get finished) my 3 year old Jonah wanted to do one too and here's his contribution to this months hero theme, suprisingly not Spiderman, but his Daddy. Bless.
