Trick or Treat

Fair cranked this out, a slightly hectic week completely messed my shaky grip on reality and I thought I had a few days before Halloween, until yesterday when I realised with an 'uh oh' that I should get my arse into gear if I wanted to do another theme pic. For some reason the colours have come out weird, slightly darker and bluer than the original. Oh well.
Gonna submit this to 'Illustration Friday', I joined last year and then watched the huge brick wall of mental block rise in my mind in best Midwich style (extra geek points for those who get that reference) every time the latest subject popped into my inbox. Fortunately 'Trick or Treat' is a no brainer, even for me:)

Start again... Village of the Damned, Midwich Cuckoos. Lovely work by the way.

I'm beginning to utterly despise Halloween I'm afraid. For the past three years we've had people chuck eggs at our windows because we didn't answer the door (not because we didn't want to answer the door but because we either didn't hear them knock as we don't have a door bell or because we were putting our two year old to bed).

I'm dreading to think what carol singers do when you don't open the door to them round this neck of the woods. which reminds me, last year I had a really rough looking group of hoodies knock and sing two lines of Wenceslas so they could have money for tabs or booze most likely. I demanded they sing the rest of it. "When the snow lay round about" I prompted. And to their credit they managed the first verse (between them). They still only got 50p out of me though.

Danny - Bride of Frankenstein is soooo good.
Delaverobum - Thank you, green is good.... and scarey:)
Peter - You're not wrong, haven't had this many hits since I did the Supergirl meme.
INJ - You win! Know what you mean about unwelcome visitors, we were sort of worried this year, but it was pretty quiet, which meant we had a box of treats we ate ourselves, just so they didn't go to waste.
