Embracing the Dead

ghost squirrel

I decided to create a ghostly costume for my somewhat ratlike looking squirrel.

His pose was perfect with his tail out of the way.

All he is missing is his trick or treat bag.



death coming for you

A few little things to start getting creepy for Halloween. Bwahahahahaha


Ever have one of those days when there is marker or crayon all over the table. The best way to clean the table and let the kids have some fun is to use shaving cream. I usually go to the dollar store and stock up.

Add a little bit of food coloring to for a bit of color.

As you can see it is great fun and a very easy to clean up!!!!

Have fun!!!!!

I love Halloween. This would have scared the ^&%@ our of me if it had come up behind me or at me. DON”T WATCH if you fear the GRIM REAPER. Enjoy!

Halloween is coming.  It is one of my favorite holidays.  I also love skeletons so this illustration works well for this time of year.

Happy Halloween!

There is a chill in the air and time to gather pumpkins and get ready for the season of fall and the holiday of Halloween. One of the things that I enjoyed about illustrating for David Lee Summers was the wonderful chance to mix my love of art with my love of dinosaurs – hadrosaurs to be specific.

Time to create your costumes. Go through your clothes, old suits that you may find at thrift stores and those last few garage sales and put together something that is unique and different. Halloween is that time when a little bit of makeup can change anyone from a human to an angel, a tramp, a gypsy, an alien, a vampire, a queen, king, knight, or bag of treats.  Imagination is your only limitation.

Remember to ask for help from an adult if you need to use a hot glue gun or anything else that requires assistance. I am going to show my grandson the tornado and see if he likes it.  🙂

Fall Squirrel
A Twabble by Marcia Borell

There is a chill in the air. A red squirrel eyes bare oaks and their scattered acorns. He stops and prays for a mild winter.
