wedding day blues

i was challenged to illustrate a picture for halloween. the theme, “a cannibal-faerie love story, featuring a duck.” 

please click the image to see it in all it’s hi-res loveliness

“wedding day blues”  [photoshop+wacom. 31 oct 2011]

the words are my own too, and read thus:

The Bride never could have imagined,
whilst vowing, “til death do us part.”
That by the end of the day…
she’d be holding the Groom’s un-beating heart.

there were a few other creative types taking part in this halloween challenge [however i was the only artist participating]. so take a trip over HERE  to read stories by kelly shew, marina bridgesjaye manus, and becky joy. enjoy!

kelly was the only other person foolish enough to use the theme “a cannibal-faerie love story, featuring a duck”, but did an amazing job with the premise. every time i see a dead duck i will be reminded of this bond we have ;)

also check out melissa on the undeveloped story, who also posted a halloween tale today, entitled ‘what the house knows’.

happy halloween guys and ghouls!
