I’m back and I can see the light at the end! I’m almost done with this huge project and ready to write books this summer!
Since I was working so hard on this room on the 3rd floor (see previous post) I did some art from it. I have been getting these really luscious darks with an Artgraf Tailor’s Black Carbon square.
I had to sneak some tea stuff into this project!
Back to “Secret Chambers and Hiding Places” by Allan Fea (read it here on project Gutenberg). This is a priest’s hole under a floor in England.
I was having so much fun with this spread. I watched “Joe Bob’s Drive-In” on Shudder and did each picture. I did a watercolor base wash, then came back in with water-soluable colored pencils (Caran d’ Ache Supracolor II) to get the lovely details and textures. I used some Prismacolors too, especially for the day-glo (neon) colors.
The writing in this story is really bad. I was really distracted. Bad time to write in ink, lol.
And look! I used my finished room as part of my project! Heck, I painted enough- it should count!
This rat from Trimper’s Haunted House was an original Bill Tracy gag. It had been spray-painted so many times it was a disgustingly delightful mess of craziness!
Something a little lighter here. I had seen a documentary about the Wacky Shack at Waldemeer Park and they showed their Hush Puppy cars. I thought they were so cute!
Stay tuned for the next post! You will get to see the entire spread about funhouses!
