Happy Halloween

The “Thriller” rap

It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You’re paralyzed

‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one’s gonna save you from the beast about to strike
You know it’s thriller, thriller night
You’re fighting for life inside a killer, thriller tonight

You hear a door slam and realize there’s nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand and wonder if you’ll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination
But all the while you hear the creature creepin’ up behind
You’re out of time

‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain’t no second chance against the thing with forty eyes
You know it’s thriller, thriller night
You’re fighting to survive inside a killer, thriller tonight

Night creatures call
The dead start to walk in their masquerade
There’s no escapin’ the jaws of the alien this time (they’re open wide)
This is the end of your life

They’re out to get you, there’s demons closing in on every side
They will possess you unless you change the number on your dial
Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together
All thru the night I’ll save you from the terrors on the screen
I’ll make you see

That it’s a thriller, thriller night
‘Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost who would dare to try
Girl, this is thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller, chiller
Thriller here tonight

Rap:(by Vincent Price
Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y’awl’s neighborhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse’s shell
The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller

~ performed by Michael Jackson & Vincent Price, written and composed by Rod Temperton

Happy Friday!

In honor National Breast Cancer Awareness Month today’s Illustrations are inspired by PINK.

 It’s important to take care of yourself, help out if you can (here), and be aware.

So take a moment to think pink.

As Halloween approaches I was feeling inspired. Instead of carving pumpkins I decided to sketch some Halloween images. You saw yesterday’s photo Pair Hoo me? Here is some of  the inspiration that went into my drawings. A mini moodboard of sorts.

And my Halloween inspired illustrations….. A little Emma with spider web leggings and spinal column heels, Candycorn Cocktail inspired from under the Tuscan Sun and the ever precious Drew kissing ET goodbye as he heads home.

Photo Pair- Hoo me?

Today’s photo pair is a recent watercolor I completed based on this fashion editorial Conte d’hiver for Vogue Magazine Paris, October 2006. Photographer Mark Segal. Models Marcelina Sowa & Suzanne Diaz. There are many more inspiring images from this shoot to work on. But this week in honor of Halloweeen I thought she was fitting.
