Illustration Friday - "Trick or Treat"

All the holiday characters dressed up as each other for Halloween and are on their way to trick-or-treat.

I think I'm going to dress as a black cat this year (simply because I already have the costume), but if I get the chance, I have another idea in mind for a costume. What are you dressing up as?

sneak peek

Here's a lil' sneak peek at what I'm working on. She's a small part of my current painting. I'll post the full painting when it's finished.

I'm also working on black & white line drawings for an educational publisher again and greeting card designs for Christian Collection. And of course, my sketch dummy for one of my picture book manuscripts that I want to have fairly ready to show to the Scholastic Art Director when I meet her in a week and a half at a conference! Wow, that's coming up quick. Back to work...

Hmmm... 40% Left, 60% Right Brained... that's about right

I think this is fairly accurate for me, but there were quite a few questions that I wanted to answer both on or add in my own answer that was a mix of theirs. Click on the link below the box to see where your dominance lies.

You Are 40% Left Brained, 60% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.
Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.
If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.
Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.
Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.
If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.
Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.
