New Summer Projects: Getting Spooky!

Well, summer so far has been about enjoying beautiful weather and getting into some new projects. Currently, I'm working on some illustrations for an original ghost story written by local author Margareta Pothier. I I love ghost stories any time of year, so this is a lot of fun. The final black and white illustrations will look very traditional and spooky, done with pen and ink.

For this book, I'm researching some period clothing and also old tombstones. There is actually a really cool old graveyard close to my house that I walk by everyday-- I'll post some pics of that soon. In the meantime, this is a pencil rough of my cover idea...
