S is for Spooky

This week I've had "spooky" on the brain because of Illustration Friday's theme...



Tam's free class "Art, Heart & Healing" started on Monday.  Since then I've been working on mixed-media portraits (with a "spooky" twist).

Z is for Zombie

And for fun, I drew a left-handed zombie on a scrap sheet of paper then used Paul Klee's transfer method to add it to my sketchbook.

Why am I zombie crazy?

Here at Casa Dudish we like to sing silly songs.  We get a kick out of changing the lyrics to well-known tunes.  Over the weekend T-man and I replaced the words in Cookie Monster's "C is for Cookie" song.  With what?  "Z is for Zombie", of course!

Z is for Zombie, that's good enough for me
Z is for Zombie, that's good enough for me
Z is for Zombie, that's good enough for me
Ohhhh... Zombie Zombie Zombie starts with Z!

Add some cool zombie dance moves and you have a crazy good time!

In case you've never heard the original "C is for Cookie" song, here is the video:

  10. You are such an incredibly creative girl. I love the first one the best. The face with the combo of that shade of blue definitely creates the feeling of being spooked out! :)
