IF - Ghost

I like to draw happy ghosts. This little fellow haunts the dusty attic of his antique address. Cheerfully he spookles the spiders, boos from the boudoir, and shrieks from the staircase.

Speaking of ghosts. There seems to be a little ghosty haunting my wire-less keyboard today. On, and off it goes, even with brand new batteries. The only thing that I can do for now is smile at their spirited games. Oh, the joys of working digitally.

Happy Haunting!

Cool colors and white line work. Love the little crow! Nice that your style here isn't too retro 50's, just a hint of it. Fun stuff!

That's well wicked David. I'm diggin' the color palette and design.

I'm in a major artistic slump right now, and I could use a ghost-artist or somethin' to take over. Maybe I'll be possessed like in The Exorcist and I'll just barf green pea soup all over a canvas. That's really not that much of a stretch from what I normally do to create artwork.

Great piece bro.

Beautiful! I love the spirit of your illustration! Its so bright and just a little cheeky! Love how you've done the house, very cheery collage-y effect. Especially the little bird perched on top. Its all the little details that make the whole thing so appealing!

This image is really lovely, David. It so reminiscent of those quaint and beautiful children’s stories about friendly ghosts. I loved those kinds of tales when I was a kid.
