The Spooky Staircase...
Hope everyone is having a great summer so far. I am happy to be finishing up my illustrations for Mr. Chimpanzee, when I received an assignment for Music K-8. They are working on their first issue of the year which covers Halloween. One of my favorite holidays. Anyway, my assignment was to create an illustration of a "scary staircase" that looked old, creaky and foreboding. So that's what I drew (illio. on the right). Pretty spooky, right? Well, too spooky for Music K-8 which is a music magazine for kids. I was actually flattered to be told my illustration was too scary! So I had to rethink what I could do to tone down the scary-ness. So, the illustration on the left was my final art. What do you think? :)
