what october has brought and a small giveaway

a littlebigDead drawing...

october month has brought these things...
  • updated the black hare with a new look, new links and several posts; motivating myself to continue to make the black hare an active place
  • reviving my listography to keep track of things like remembering graces both small and great
  • feeling good about finally sending mail off to drucilla, helena and mathyld
  • halfway through october and we haven't made any halloween crafts; thinking of ideas to do with her
  • happy that the weather has finally cooled with a few good days of gray, rain and a bit of thunder and lightening
  • working on my cursive, it's a dying tradition but I will try my best to keep it up with writing letters, cards and such
  • really enjoying the new HBO show Boardwalk Empire and loving all the inspirations it is bringing
  • remembering how I use to draw littlebigDead stuff during the months of September and October and drew a new one today
  • thinking of all my favorite halloween photos of Natalie and how I need to gather the last seven years of her costumes photos to compile in one place
Lately I've been drawing on kid's kraft papers that offer the kind of look I've been wanting in some of my drawings. The only thing is the paper is not quality stock paper and it's a bit thin. I think I have found my solution in another stock paper that I have yet to purchase. Until then, I have the kraft papers for some nice illustrating time.

I am going to do a giveaway of the above drawing to one person who comments here with their email address by random selection. I'll keep the commenting open until Wednesday October 27th. I will include a few other things as well so it will be like a tiny care package. Spread the word via twitter or on your own blog for additional entries. Just please sure to leave the link so that it can be verified.

I just received your parcel ! Eeeep !
Thank you so very much, my friend !
I have something to send your way, too, very soon.

This skeleton girl is adorable, but don't enter me for the giveaway, because I've just been too lucky and own so many of your treasures, that it would be robbing someone else :)

Good luck, everyone !
