Begging for Candy, Tribute

I made this little image in homage to Pumpkinrot. I've been enjoying Rot's work for years;  and besides his amazing artistry, his wonderful Halloween creations, and his enormous influence on my own work;  I've also really enjoyed his Begging Candy panel comics. They have a great, sardonic sense of humor, and perfectly capture the atmosphere of Halloween at the witching hour.

Bats in the Sky tonight

Had to get away from the house tonight, it was way too hot, what with the high humidity, so I rode my bike to the park and took a walk.

It turned out to be a good idea, because the bats were out tonight, swooping hither and thither overhead, hunting insects I expect. We seem to have a healthy bat population here, and I appreciate the service they provide hunting pests. Also they are really cute.

I walked around the park and as the sun went down I spied lightning striking in the far distance.

I went on the swings for a bit, and then when I went to unlock my bike, the biggest spider in Oregon skittered up and chilled just underneath my bicycle.

A good night for ghoulies, ghosties, and long-leggedy beasties.

Watch this space, I've got new posts coming up soon,
