Every year I always think I'm going to finally get it together for Halloween. Sure enough this year it arrived and I was late on deadline and was drawing frantically even as the neighborhood was abuzz with sounds of children coming out for trick or treat.
Thankfully Cynthia had been getting the house ready. She egged me to do a large cut out for our front picture window, so I decided to try out redoing an older image I had done for Martha Stewart Living back in 2006.
I printed it out, blew it up using a grid onto black paper and slapped it up on the window. Cynthia took these pictures....this one is from our living room looking out toward the street through the blinds.
At night we made sure to back light it.
This is what Martha originally intended: pumpkin masks. We did this once, and it worked quite well.
Drawger extraordinaire Cathie Bleck got the cover of that issue.
Here's the original cat image.
Anyway, happy Halloween everyone!
An addendum: Here are the other three "pumpkin masks" from this same issue...
