I don’t do cute but sometimes cute gets the better of me. This was the case when working on Curious Kittens, created with a too-sweet-for-its-own-good Victorian picture from The Graphics Fairy. I wanted to introduce an atmosphere that would turn it into something a little less prosaic, a little less ‘aahs’, and with greater depth to the colours. Adding one of my reddish textures in Subtract mode (Photoshop) has given it an entirely different atmosphere, while the green palette makes the goldfish bowl a much more interesting proposition to look at. That’s what I feel anyway!

Just imagine you’re living in the 19th century and want the perfect entertainment for Halloween. You could try The Haunting at the Theatre Royal. But beware the black cat!

Having just sold this Halloween card on Greeting Card Universe, it’s clear that people are already thinking about 31st October and being spooked out by kids trick or treating!

Just in case you were wondering, there was never — to my knowledge — a Victorian play called The Haunting. The image was created with various bits of family ephemera and Photoshop’s design tools, except for the black cat, which came (I think) from The Graphics Fairy.
