October Art Roundup: Halloween Creeps, Cats, & Cuties!

It's time for more awesome art! And in the spirit of the season, LET'S GET OUR CREEP ON.

But not like that. Ew.



Dennis Hansbury makes spooky art year-round, but he's really amped it up this month:
 
 ::shiver::

It's not all scary, though; look at his adorable enamel bat pin!


I love it!

 Dennis' cat skull magnet is also just the right amount of spooky for me:

He has this as a die-cut sticker, too!

Dennis hand cuts all his wood pieces himself, then shades with thin ink washes, so his originals are silky smooth - no brush strokes. John and I own a handful of his originals, and I can tell you they are SUPER cool in person.


Last one: Dennis drew this right after we got Eva, and admits she helped inspire it:

 D'awwwwwww.

 Head over to Dennis' Etsy shop to see the rest, and follow him on Instagram to see new works and all the stuff that's already sold! (I can't wait for him to finish his new "bats in costumes" set - SO CUTE.)

*****

One of the best things about October is Inktober, the month-long celebration where artists make a new ink drawing every day. There are SO much great artists over on Instagram, and one of my new favorites is Artemii Myasnikov:


His mostly black-and-white inks with bright pops of red are just incredible this month.


Kitty!

Oh, and you may have seen these: Artemii is the one who gave the Disney princesses a warrior make-over that's to die for:

This is honestly the first time I've been tempted to make cosplay armor. IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL.

Rapunzel is rockin', too:

From what I can see Artemii doesn't sell any prints [sob], but go follow him on Instagram to see more of his work!

*****

My friend Bianca Roman-Stumpff just finished my favorite yet in her "Body and Soul" series:


I should also show you my newest Bianca addition to the steampunk room, since it fits this month's theme  - and also I really like the frame we found for it. :)

Ghost pirate!


*****

Loish always knocks it out of the park, here's my fav so far from her Inktober pieces:
 
It's amazing what she does with just three colors. Wow.

*****

Another new artist find: Lynn Chen and her ADORABLE creatures:

Hee!


And a Corgi Harry Potter, of course:

From what I can see on her website Lynn doesn't sell prints, so you'll have to follow her on Instagram or Facebook to see more of her fabulous work.


*****

David Everett, aka Chicken Lips, is a paper mache artist who also makes delightfully spooky stuff year-round. I never knew I could love a grumpy skeleton this much, gang:

 The one in jammies! Ha!

And look at these:
 SO FUN. Now I want all my candles to have silly faces.



This one made me laugh:


His originals are sold at galleries and occasionally online through his pages, but David also has printed wood plaques and mugs of some of his sculpts over on Etsy. I think you DizGeeks will appreciate these:

 Check out his Etsy shop to see the rest, and be sure to follow him on Instagram to see David's new work.

*****

Heather Sketcheroos has been doing a whole series about little witchy kitties and owls and their spooky shenanigans, and it's seriously too sweet for words:



And some undead fawns, just because:

Sadly Heather's shop is closed until mid-November, but at least she HAS a shop! So for now go follow her on Instagram to see more; I'm sure she'll remind us when the shop's back up and running.

*****

I know Joey Chou's work from the Disney galleries, but he does a lot more than just Disney! Here's his new tribute piece for the Addams Family:


And he somehow managed to make Stephen King's IT... cute?!


The girl from The Ring, too:

Go check out Joey's online shop for more, and give him a follow on IG for more amazing art.

*****
 

K, that does it for this month - so now let's give away some art! As always, comment below to enter to win your choice of free art from my Pinterest Art Give-Away board. In addition to one wildcard winner, this month I'm also giving away these two ORIGINAL pieces from my personal collection:


Edward is a smaller 4X6 and comes in a 5X7 cream mat, ready for framing. Beaker & Honeydew are just over 8X10. Both are original marker drawings by Michael "Locoduck" Duran, and were framed in my office for years. I have to rotate things out to make room for new art, though, so if you'd like either of these, be sure to tell me in your comment!

I'll announce all three winners in my very next post, so remember to check back. Unclaimed art will go to the fastest commenter over on Facebook, so you may want to follow me there, too. :)

Happy Saturday, and happy commenting!

UPDATE: The give-away has ended!

The winner of Edward Scissorhands is Allyson Wajda
The winner of Beaker & Honeydew is Crystal Pauley
And my wild card winner is Piper P.!

Congrats, you three, and please e-mail me your mailing addresses!

  18. Great art round-up as always! The Beaker piece really spoke to me. My older brother's nick-name was Beaker as he had a more than passing resemblance to the lanky scientist. The title title : An Experiment in Caring, really defined his life as well. ::fingers-crossed::
