|© Holly DeWolf- Bride Of Frankenstein|
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!

|© Holly DeWolf- 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!

|© Holly DeWolf- 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!

|© Holly DeWolf- Little greenhouse of horrors!|
I had a great Thanksgiving and a much needed break. For Today's Inktober sketch I used an idea from an illustration from last year's Halloween work. I paid homage to The Little Shop of Horrors and some chattering teeth for added effect!

|© Holly DeWolf- Cheers to Halloween!|
Pumpkin spice has taken over. We are sprinkling that stuff on everything. It's in our cookies, coffee, candles... and even in pop-tarts! It was inevitable, the scarecrows are hopping on the spice wagon too. So cheers to Halloween with all it's zippy seasoned and festive gusto!

|© Holly DeWolf- The 13 Ghosts|
Today my inspiration came from The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo! My girls watch those all the time. I've wanted to illustrate this for quite awhile so Inktober is the time to get it done! I also paid homage to the great pumpkin-There is a teeny tiny Charlie Brown reference plus a Movember ghost too.
