This year’s Halloween Comic was hard to read on Gocomics. I’m posting a larger size here. Here’s hoping Gocomics brings back the zoom feature. Ideally, I would love to do the strip as a full page Sunday comic every week. Obviously, that is not the state of newspapers comics at the moment.
It’s no secret that I love doing a big Halloween strip every year. This one was a lot of fun. I started it a bit early just so I could get in more details. And yes, there are Easter eggs. This preview has one of the more obvious eggs. A little nod to Guillermo Del Torro’s new film.
I’m still new to the t-shirt game and I’ve missed creating designs for a few holidays here and there but I certainly wasn’t going to miss out on Halloween. Here’s a few, some are Dog eat Doug inspired and some are for fun.
This is my favorite. Simple and cute. Looks a little Peanut-ish, don’t you think?
Click here if you would like to see all the Dog eat Doug shirts available on Amazon. Hopefully soon they will add the ability to have a separate storefront. For now, I’m thrilled with the quality of the shirts and how easy it is for people to order them at Amazon. Only had on hiccup so far. If you do have any issues, or an idea you’d like to see on a t-shirt, drop me a line!
Happy Halloween! Thought I’d reformat Sunday’s comic to make it easier to read. I think you can tell I based the art on my favorite movie of all time, “Pan’s Labyrinth”. Well, it’s tied with “The Nightmare before Christmas” but obviously it’s impossible to compare the two.
Also, thought I’d share a link to a lovely bit of Halloween history, courtesy of History.com. The Irish roots of the holiday are almost as fun as free candy. Part of me wishes we kept some of those old traditions:
And of course, it’s the only time of year when it’s socially acceptable to share my deep love of vintage Halloween photos. If you’ve never ventured down that rabbit hole, I highly recommend taking a stroll down the path of the creepiest, most unsettling images you’ll ever see. I’ll leave you with one of my favorites:
