The Blob!

When the Blob sits around the houseit sits AROUND the house! I love the original 1958 version of The Blob with Steve McQueen. 

I love the movie taglines too: "Beware of the Blob! It creeps, and leaps, and glides and slides across the floor. Indescribable... Indestructible! Nothing Can Stop It! Indescribable... indestructible... insatiable. The indestructible creature! Bloated with the blood of its victims! It crawls.... It creeps.... It eats you alive!"

I was asked to illustrate the Grim Reaper so I dolled him up a little. He's a classy and ghastly fella. When he's on the job, he likes to go out in dreadful style!

The creature from The Brew Lagoon!

I decided to illustrate another cinema classic but with a caffeinated twist. I always manage to mix up the blue lagoon (which was some cheesy 80's movie) and the black lagoon. I decided to just go with that and add some coffee humour to the mix. But of course, creatures need to fuel too up so they can catch all those unsuspecting swimmers!

Mummy Malfuction!

It's hard to keep things under wraps when your having a wardrobe malfunction. October's weather can really unravel our stylish plans so it's best to pack some safety pins, glue and possibly a stapler for extra protection.

Cloudy with a chance of electrocution!

I could not do a series of Inktober illustrations without sketching The Bride Of Frankenstein. When I think if her character, I always think of Madeline Khan and her role in Young Frankenstein. "Taffeta Darling!

My #inktober so far!

I'm really happy I've been able to participate in this InkTober challenge and keep it going for 15 days. The majority of these illustrations are ideas I've wanted to create for years. October moves fast and I typically run out of time. I've had many mention they like the "theme" I've chosen but I think it turned that because I keep an illustration idea file... and they were scratching to come out as drawings! 

Witchy Women, see how how she flies!

My Inktober series definitely needed a Witch to be added to the illustration party. She's a pretty free spirit so she wont be visiting long!

The trouble with Hairy!

Hitchcock's film, The Trouble with Harry was the inspiration for today's InkTober challenge. Eventually I'll doll him up in Technicolor.

Do that voodoo that you do so well!

I got a request to illustrate a voodoo doll for today's InkTober challenge. Of course I took inspiration from Cole Porter's song, You do something to me. This Voodoo doll is swanky, he uses a pin for a cane and he's ready for Halloween!

The Cabinet Of Dr. Cali-Spider!

One of my favourite B/W films is The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari. It's a wonky German Expressionism 1920's film about a doctor and his somnambulist, Cesare. What I love about this film is the strange oblong buildings, tilting scenes, great film set plus it's just so very cool. Another tid-bit- there's a scene in Beetlejuice that pays homage to this film. AND for added dizzying measure, I threw in some Vertigo too to entice you into his web!
