This cute illustration of a young witch (surely an innocent apprentice!), with her cat and pumpkin carriage, takes us back to the early 20th century when greeting card illustration was highly inventive and extremely popular. I have given her a new lease of life with a starry night background.

Take care and keep laughing!

Zazzle tells me that now is the time to promote my products for Halloween. Since I almost never do this with calendar dates in time to make a difference to my sales, I’m continuing with the theme for today’s post. Look away now if you can live without 31st October!

I selected the witch from a vintage image from The Graphics Fairy and then created a black background with stars. I’m rather fond of the result though I say it myself as shouldn’t.

ACT I  SCENE I  A desert place.
[Thunder and lightning. Enter three Witches]
First Witch When shall we three meet again
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?
Second Witch When the hurlyburly’s done,
When the battle’s lost and won.
Third Witch That will be ere the set of sun. 5
First Witch Where the place?
Second Witch Upon the heath.
Third Witch There to meet with Macbeth.
First Witch I come, graymalkin!
Second Witch Paddock calls. 10
Third Witch Anon!
ALL Fair is foul, and foul is fair:
Hover through the fog and filthy air.
[Exeunt]

The design for both The Witch’s Cat and The Tree was created in a similar way to the Thanksgiving card featured in the previous post.  In other words, I used a fairly ordinary photograph of a tree that I took at my local park in Richmond, Surrey, and added several different textures.  And, of course, I did my usual experiments with blending states in Photoshop.

The finished image as above stands alone and is being sold on RedBubble.

For the Halloween version, The Witch’s Cat, I simply added an arched black cat, as above,  from the redoubtable Graphics Fairy.

I am in the process of uploading it onto products at Zazzle.  Of all the products available at Zazzle, I love adding my designs to the Avery binders.  I’m not sure why it excites me so much but here is The Witch’s Cat binder.

Halloween: The Final Frontier

This Avery Binder uses my latest Halloween design featuring a vintage image from The Graphics Fairy and which I’ve placed on a starry night background created with Photoshop brushes.   This is not a witch of which to be frightened, although I’m a little concerned at how tightly she’s hugging that cat!  Perhaps it’s a matter of butter wouldn’t melt and there’s a terrifying hag bursting to come out.  Maybe the real witch is hidden inside the enormous pumpkin.

Available on other Zazzle products and posted on  The Graphics Fairy‘s Brag Monday.

Take care and keep laughing!
