Inktober 2018 Day 14: Clock/Godzilla
Day 14: Clock/Godzilla
Let’s be honest here, this was the only clock big enough for a Godzilla image. I kind of dig it.
Inktober 2016- Day 1: Fast
The story is that a coworker was outside for a team meeting and a bird flew up her skirt. Without a thought the bird fell out of her skirt and she punted it. The bird flew off but when the prompt for fast came up, this is what I thought of first.
Inktober 2016- Day 2: Noisy/ Zombie
Day 2: Noisy/Zombie - I decided that I defintiely wanted things to go more along the Halloween route and changed my tactics and started to mash up another artist’s halloween inktober list. I also decided to make things easier that I would do the bulk of these in gray toned prismacolor marker.

True story, this Zuni doll from the Trilogy of Terror was my husband’s idea when he heard the prompt. I had no idea what he was talking about, so we sat down and watched “Amelia” the short in which this little creeper is terrorizing Karen Black. I was hooked. My husband loved this image so much that he used it as his profile pic on Facebook for forever.

Inktober 2017 Day 1: Swift/ Crypt
Day 1: Swift Crypt
So, in 2017 I decided to make may own list to mash up with the Inktober prompts. So the hubs and I sat down and tried to capture as much creepy stuff as we could in 31 days. The mashups are stellar and ended up being super challenging. I did try to stick to the grays again, but there are a little more color pieces popping up in 2017. I also did a better job of tagging them to keep track.

True story, there is a scarecrow every year I’ve done Inktober. Why I am not sure but there you have it. How precious is this one tho?
Inktober 2017 Day 8: Crooked/Skull
Day 8: Crooked/Skull
I used a legit deformed skull as reference but what this immediately made me think of was the Phantom of the Opera, as Erik is supposedly horribly deformed. The sheet music is from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical of the same name.
Inktober 2017 Day 9: Screech/Ghost
Day 9: Screech/Ghost
With a prompt like that, it could only be a banshee right?

Day 10: Gigantic/Ouija Board
I feel like someone should make this!
Inktober 2017 Day 11: Run/Trap Door

Inktober 2017 Day 18: Filthy/ Skeleton
Day 18: Filthy/ Skeleton
To be honest, I was originally thinking of the remains of Mr. Cobblepot from Goonies, as they were pretty dirty. But the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to draw One-Eyed Willy. So here he is, a bit dusty and cobwebby.
Inktober 2017 Day 19: Cloud/Monster
Day 19: Cloud/ Monster
I am pretty sure this was inspired by a dating site commercial. I mean, how ironic would it be ? You find your true love and then you’re eaten by a giant cloud monster. HILARITY!
(This still makes me giggle.)
Inktober 2017 Day 20: Deep/Vampire
Day 20: Deep/Vampire
This was inspired by the wellhouse that’s holding a ghost/demon in the comic Locke & Key. I started to think about what would happen if there was a vampire in there, and what would happen if it got out.
Inktober 2017 Day 21: Furious/ Haunted House
Day 21: Furious/Haunted House
I am not going to lie, this is the house from the animated film, Monster House. Making it look angry was an interesting project.
Inktober 2017 Day 22: Trail/Spider
Day 22: Trail/Spider
“Spiders flee before the Basilisk, for it is their mortal enemy, and the Basilisk flees only from the crowing of the rooster, which is fatal to it." The Basilisk is a giant serpent, also known as the King of Serpents. It is a creature bred by Dark Wizards. “ - Hermione Granger, Harry Potter & The Chamber of Secrets
This was my first thought with this prompt.
Inktober 2017 Day 23: Juicy/ Mummy

Rick: “Is he supposed to look like that?”
Evelyn: “No - no, I've never seen a mummy look like this before, he's still - still -”

The Mummy, 1999
This was my first thought with this prompt. Poor misunderstood Imhotep.
Inktober 2017 Day 24: Blind/ Murder
Day 24: Blind/ Murder
The prompt immediately made me think of crows. It’s not uncommon for crows to go blind and they have a very specific look to them when they do.
Inktober 2017 Day 25: Ship/ Haunted
Day 25: Ship/ Haunted
The Flying Dutchman from Pirates of the Caribbean. This was also inspired by the ship from the original version of The Fog.

Day 29: United/Werewolf
If they had their own airlines, it would totally be like this. I am sure of it!
Inktober 2017 Day 30: Found/Trick or Treat
Day 30: Found/ Trick or Treat
You just can’t be too careful at this time of year.
Note: There are almost zero documented cases of poisoned candy and a tiny handful of documented cases of foreign objects in candy (and zero cases of razors in apples).
Inktober 2017 Day 31: Mask/Halloween
Day 31: Mask/ Halloween
These are both actual masks available online. I totally want the ornate skull. The other is a plague mask made of leather, super creepy!
Inktober 2018 Day 1: Poisonous/ Spirit
Day 1: Poisonous/Spirit
This year, I have been home for the entire month of October as I am not currently working. It really gave me a chance to branch out, do more color and add watercolor to several pieces.
This immediately made me think of Regan from The Exorcist and I wanted to capture the menace of her time with Mr. Howdy and the ouija board.
Inktober 2018 Day 2: Tranquil/ Lich
Day 2: Tranquil/ Lich
Whenever I think of the word Lich, I always go to the Lich King from Adventure Time, so here he is, tranquil, on vacation!
Inktober 2018 Day 3: Roasted/Gallows
Day 3: Roasted/ Gallows

Inktober 2018 Day 4: Spell/Embalmed
Day 4: Spell/Embalmed
While trying to figure out what to draw , I stumbled across some pictures of antique mobile embalming equipment. I immediately knew which spell I would want embalmed and check out that black flame candle!
Inktober 2018 Day 5: Chicken/Candy
Day 5: Chicken/Candy
I think we all know what chicken candy stands for, it’s PEEPS, of course it’s peeps! And angry peeps at that!
Inktober 2018 Day 6: Drooling/ Witch
Day 6: Drooling/ Witch
I felt a little guilty about adding Samantha in this image with Helga but dangit, it’s so funny.
(Seriously, I am still laughing about it.)
Inktober 2018 Day 7: Exhuasted/Buried
Day 7: Exhausted/Buried
This promp immediately made me think of Billy from Hocus Pocus and his dirt nap. Probably one of my favorites from this year.
Inktober 2018 Day 8: Star/Carved
Day 8: Star/Carved
Of course it’s a pumpkin! In fact, I actually carved my pumpkin to match this year.
Inktober 2018 Day 9: Precious/Pumpkin
Day 9: Precious/Pumpkin
As luck would have it, of course I have two days with pumpkins together. I was trying to think of precious things and I happened to look at the crown jewels of England. And it suddenly occurred to me that that orb would make a great pumpkin, and Voila!
Inktober 2018 Day 10: Flowing/Black Cat
Day 10: Flowing/Black Cat
Another one that comes up every year, black cat as a prompt. I knew I was going to do black cat ghosties but originally the grave was just going to say “Cat Lady”. I started wondering if there were famous cat ladies? Turns out every Bronte sister was a cat hoarder, so this is the headstone of the oldest, Anne.
Inktober 2018 Day 11: Cruel/Bat
Day 11: Cruel/Bat
While I was looking for bat reference material I stumbled across some pics of the desert long eared bat and fell in love. My reference photo was just so blessed happy that I changed cruel to crewel, as in needlework- so there he is, your embroidering bat. You’re welcome.
Inktober 2018 Day 12: Whale/Cobwebs
Day 12: Whale/Cobwebs
I knew I didn’t want to draw a whale, but whale BONES? Yes, please. This is based on the blue whale skeleton at the British Museum of Natural History. Her name is Hope and you can find her in Hintze Hall, which is her permanent home.
That aside, imagine the size of the spider it took to catch a blue whale in its web. * shudder *
Inktober 2018 Day 13: Guarded/Wand
Day 13: Guarded/Wand
Wormtail held this wand waiting for Voldemort’s return, you can be sure it’s guarded!
Inktober 2018 Day 15: Weak/Chains
Day 15: Weak/Chains
There is a weak link in those manacles, it will probably give and these two will be free again. Oh darn!
Inktober 2018 Day 16: Angular/Barn Owl
Day 16: Angular/Barn Owl
Note: I started delving more into watercolors this day and I was heavily inspired by Bubo from the 1981 Clash of the Titans.
Inktober 2018 Day 17: Swollen/Scarecrow
Day 17: Swollen/ Scarecrow
As I mentioned before there is a scarecrow every year, this year’s garden guardian is ‘Swoll like Elvis’. He’s jolly and tubby and I love him.
Inktober 2018 Day 18: Bottle/Coffin
Day 18: Bottle/Coffin
I am pretty sure this is the most awesome whiskey bottle ever. I would totally drink this.
Inktober 2018 Day 19: Scorched/Cauldron
Day 19: Scorched/Cauldron
My thoughts with this prompt immediately went to Hocus Pocus, I mean that cauldron is LEGIT. I love the shape and mechanics of how it hangs from the ceiling of the Sanderson sisters cottage.
Inktober 2018 Day 20: Breakable/Possessed
Day 20: Breakable/Possessed
Madame Leota from the Haunted Mansion was my go to for this prompt. I love the aesthetics of this.
Inktober 2018 Day 21: Drain/Undead
Day 21: Drain/Undead
I made this with a specific friend in mind who says “I’ve seen enough horror films to know, you NEVER put your hand in the garbage disposal”.
Inktober 2018 Day 22: Expensive/ Skull
Day 22: Expensive/ Skull
It looks pretty spendy to me, especially with that gem in the tooth there. So fancy!
Inktober 2018 Day 23: Muddy/Evil Eye
Day 23: Muddy/Evil Eye
This pieces is almost exclusively watercolor and the first I’ve done like this. I am pretty pleased overall with my progress in this medium but hey, that’s not the point. There is an EYE in the mud?
Inktober 2018 Day 24: Chop/ Spider
Day 24: Chop/ Spider
I am going to be honest this was the first thing that popped into my head with this prompt and I am going to stand by it. Murderous chef arachnids for the win!
Inktober 2018 Day 25: Prickly/ Tentacle
Day 25: Prickly/ Tentacle
Hrmn, there is something moving in that urn over there. I am guessing that’s not a plant?
Inktober 2018 Day 26: Stretch/Cross
Day 26: Stretch/Cross
I knew this was going to be a big cross but the more I thought about it the more it needed to be someone’s tombstone. And here we are, if Vincent Price was part of the wizarding world, this might have been his headstone.
Inktober 2018 Day 27: Thunder/Nightmare
Day 27: Thunder/Nightmare
I went Nightmare Before Christmas here, here is Jack’s house amidst a thunderstorm.
Inktober 2018 Day 28: Gift/ Demon
Day 28: Gift/Demon
Inktober 2018 Day 29: Double/Snake
Day 29: Double/Snake
I may have mentioned that I am a fan of the look of Siamese twins but I don’t think that translates well to King Cobras. Believe it or not, this is something that happens more than you think with snakes and they can live just fine like this. Creepy,right?
Inktober 2018 Day 30: Jolt/ Jack & Sally
Day 30: Jolt/Jack & Sally
Inspired by the original Addams Family movie where Wednesday wants to play a game called “Is there a God?”. As usual something with Jack & Sally works it’s way into Inktober. <3
Inktober 2018 Day 31: Slice/Halloween
Day 31: Slice/Halloween
I tend to keep Halloween as the Day 31 prompt for this project. Halloween also happens to be my wedding anniversary, so I drew my dream anniversary cake for year 14! Enjoy!
