Halloween illustrations

I had a great summer this year, but I’m always excited for my favourite autumn season. Joel and I put on a big Halloween display at our house, and I look forward to it every year when the kids fill the streets by the hundreds for trick-or-treating. Here are some unashamedly Gothic Halloween-themed illustrations:

Rootitoot portrait for Chatelaine

I illustrated a portrait of Ruth “Rootitoot” McCusker for Chatelaine magazine. Ruth was an Instant Pot guru who recently passed away. I learned a lot about Instant Pots while researching items for the background. I’ve never used one, but a lot of people are passionate about them…and apparently you can make cheesecakes in them!
