Rat & Bat and The Glider

A little vignette for the Childrens book Illustration course I’m doing based on a couple of characters I came up with. Planning to get some good images together for my portfolio.

The Maa-Alused print

The Maa-Alused By Joe Callanan

I’ve posted it twice to save neck strain.

An aquatint etching of The Maa-Alused from Estonian folklore, Elf like creatures who have a parallel existence to humans but with all the orientations in reverse.
I printed a few of these, once I get an online store together you can buy one.

Complete Drawlloween & Inktober drawings

Haunted House
 Creature from the Black Lagoon
 8bit Zombie
Black Cat

I had a go at Inktober this year and worked from this Drawlloween list. 

It's good to have a schedule to draw and post everyday, but it did effect all the other things I wanted to draw and I delayed the last 3 drawings so I could finish a one page comic. 
Overall It was fun and I'm happy with the results although you can tell I rushed a few of them.
