Boo!

I could have gone the ghouls and goblin route — those maliciously-frighting creatures that roam the night, but instead I choose pay tribute to the friendlier Ghost. You know the one: draped in white, a shocked face, and sometimes even shy. It is certainly one of the more charming characters in All Hallow's Eve. This is my tribute (above by obsequies).

Sketching with Found Leaves

Spend enough time on Tumblr and you're bound to find a mountain of treasure ("El Dorado" be darned!). One such treasure is Robert Alejandro (aka The Sketching Backpacker) whose book is filled to the brim with locales from his constant travels. Even more interesting though, are his Leave Sketches, in which he takes ordinary, unnoticed-leaves and makes them the spotlight of the drawn page.

Lucha Libre Masks

Lucha Libre, Mexico's form of professional wrestling, is characterized by rapid sequences of holds and maneuvers, as well as Luchadores with names like El Hijo Del Santo (The Saint's Son), Blue Devil Jr, Señor Jalapeno, and El Pepino Grande (The Big Pickle) just to name a few, but the trademark of the sport are the Luchadores' masks. They are colorfully designed to evoke the images of animals, gods, ancient heroes, and other archetypes, whose identity the luchador takes on during a performance.

Stencil artist stenSOUL mailed out luchador masks made of wood to different artists and asked them to paint in their style the background of the mask. Once done, stenSOUL stenciled-in the details of the face into the wood to finish them up. The results, are masks that like those of the wrestlers themselves, resemble the identity and archetype of each of the artists.

We've provided some of the highlights below, but check out stenSoul's flickr feed of Collabomask for some more goodies.

A Tiny Red Book of Love

You may know Chris Battle for his illustration work on rambunctious TV shows like The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack, among others. It's easy to see why; his cartoon talent is a natural fit, but what you may not know is Chris' more sensitive side.

On a past Valentines, Chris bought his wife a little bound red sketchbook, and every day he filled its miniature pages with random characters and thoughts. The result is a witty and adorable itsy-bitsy book of love and doodles, be prepared to be swooned.

Carol in Wonderland

There is something fantastical about Carol Powell's drawings. They feature creatures and animals that are straight out of a Lewis Carroll novel. They are both familiar enough to be distinguishable, but quirky enough to arouse our curiosity.

Come down the rabbit hole and take a peek.

Texture Virus

My visual acuity has just been dominated by Corinne Wright's ridiculously-detailed textured doodles. It is as if, like a virus, each line is slowly overpowering and devouring the landscape they occupy.

Well played Corinne, well played.

All The Pretty Ladies

One of my first true loves was Wendy, a run-down all-blue Nissan (Datsun) Stanza. Some of my most memorable stories (from my teenage years) could be traced back to my old "deep blue" and I couldn't help but reminisce while looking at the "Ladies" set of illustrated cars by France Belleville-Van Stone. It's easy to see why: Most of the watercolor drawings reveal the innate character and age of each vehicle, with strokes that feel almost like wrinkles on a person.

I wonder what Wendy looks like now. Is she just scrap at a junk yard? Or is she, even with all her imperfections, someone else's first true love.
