every october, one of my favorite places in the whole world, the edward gorey house museum on cape cod, hosts a halloween envelope art contest. it used to be open only to children, but last year they added an 18+ category and i made sure to be ready this time. i'll be posting my entry later this week and keeping my fingers crossed!

halloween card for papyrus

happy october! temperatures dropped last week and my walks are getting longer as i try to savor the crisp autumn weather while it lasts. i illustrated this halloween card for papyrus a year ago and it's finally available in stores and online! the lenticular printing allows for the image to change when viewed from a different angle, so what at first appears to be a beautiful young woman is really a spooky, albeit still elegant, old witch. halloween card for papyrus
