As is my tradition every October, the chalkboard becomes a countdown to Halloween with some of the most famous ghouls in monster-dom. We went with modern monsters this week, more or less. The zombie was drawn for the premiere of The Walking Dead but I gave him that blueish pallor that George Romero outfitted his zombies with in Dawn of the Dead.

If you’re noticing a big name left out here, it’s because he made an appearance this past September 13th.

Unfortunately, I got a little messed up on the countdown but… I still like ‘em anyway.

pearce family holiday drawings: halloween 2012

Posted in illustration with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 1, 2012 by Christopher Pearce

For the past few years, I’ve taken some time out of my comic schedule to celebrate Halloween by drawing a picture of Ellen and I with the kids in some kind of Halloween motif. I also color the thing, something that’s not entirely my forte, but I give it a shot.

Two years ago, I drew us as Ghostbusters. Last year, I went the Universal movie monster route. This year, I decided to stick with the monsters but go a little modern.

Ellen is Freddy Krueger, I’m Jason Voorhees, Elliot is Chuckie from Child’s Play, and Henry is Jigsaw from the Saw series of films.

There are things I really like about this drawing, I guess. Ellen’s in a fun, dynamic pose. I always feel like she gets the short end of the stick in these holiday drawings, so that’s a nice thing. Beyond that however… I don’t know. I’m not as happy with this years’ drawing as I have been for past Halloweens. I guess the “monsters” the kids are just don’t pop the same way they have in the last two drawings.

Of course, I’m over thinking this a whole lot. I’m aware.

Let’s end the year with some rejected Thrift Store Finds. These are things I picked up at our local St. Vincent de Paul store which, for whatever reason, I couldn’t figure out a way to dedicate a whole entry to ’em.
