|© 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!

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.

Move over slasher flicks and candy corn! What better way to get ready for Halloween than a Blood Moon with the added bonus of an eclipse! I had to illustrate something to honour this festive lunar event!

Day Of The Dead is the theme my girls are going with this year for their Halloween costumes. So since that is the focus, I thought I'd try my hand at doodling some festive dead pumpkins to get the ideas rolling.

On this fine Friday, I decided to play with this big squid plus I get to say "release the Kraken!" I can't wait to add color to these. My plans are to have them posted for my 13 days of Halloween which I started last year.
