Catacomb Prompt Day : Silly Stan Stacks Skeletons

Another Drawlloween has come and gone but boy oh boy did I get some good drawing in during the month of October! Each day of October a prompt was given by our lovely host Mab Graves (@mabgraves). If you’d like to see all the spooktacular artwork that members of the drawlloween club created search #mabsdrawlloweenclub on the social media platform Instagram.

 

Not all good things end there! I worked on some creepy cute commissions. One was for a sweet family, Heidi & Ville. I enjoyed every step of the process, especially because Heidi wanted a Halloween themed family portrait! I shipped this family portrait off to Australia where Heidi and Ville live.

Heidi and Ville would be the type of family that would visit infiniteautumn.com. This website is a special place online where you can celebrate Halloween everyday. I was lucky enough to be the chosen artist to work on The Infinite Autumn’s October pumpkin logo.

Taking art into another realm I’ve begun to work in Procreate for the iPad Pro. I am loving the variety of brushes and I’ve already created my first mini print entirely digitally made! The digital design is now available in color and grey scale in the shop. Shop Now!

Speaking of different realms I had a soft debut as a vendor and I set up the Natatat shop and met the world in real life! Being a vendor at a school during a Halloween carnival was a sweet experience with trick or treaters around and the Halloween spirit. Among prints and stickers I also sold my collaboration pins that Pinheadz an art pin brand from Martian Toys produced for me. I am looking forward to be a regular vendor at Halloween events next year!

I’ve been artfully active these past two months and I don’t plan on stopping. Thank you to everyone who supports me in my creative adventures and I can’t wait to show you all what more I have in store! The year isn’t over yet and I have a feeling something very special will be announced by the new year. Stay tuned boys and girls!

 

Hello Friends,

Fall is approaching, more and more spooky spirits are rising to reveal Halloween is coming! In honor of my favorite holiday I’ve created 3 new prints. A lovely witch drinking a hocus pocus pumpkin brew (8.5 x 11), a bat girl enjoying a bitter sweet candy apple (8.5 x 11), and an original pumpkin character “Stan” who strolls the spooky forest illuminated by candles just like the one atop his pumpkin head (4 x 6). Are you curious about how you can get these prints?

Well, I started a campaign on Go Fund Me. If you donate a minimum of $7 you will receive a 4×6 print. A donation of $25 will get you two prints! (Free shipping within the U.S.).

Please visit https://www.gofundme.com/f/first-artisan-exhibition and find out what the campaign is all about.

To also welcome the Halloween season I will be participating in Spooktember. A week long of frightfully cute prompts brought to you by Little Spooky Studio. Check out their illustrations on IG @littlespookystudio, creepy cute art that I adore. The kick off starts Sept. 1st!

As always thank you for the warm responses and support. There is more to come!

Peace, Love and Positivity.

I spent my summer painting! I have been focused on trying to incorporate acrylic paints into my creative stream.

Early July I was proposed with an idea and a commission. The patron asked me to create a piece inspired by the popular video game Kingdom Hearts but with a Natatat twist. It was my pleasure to do so! I enjoyed the process and am ever so grateful for the opportunity to paint this idea into reality. My goal was to take the composition of the Kingdom Hearts characters and place my characters in that same composition and in Halloween costumes. The piece is 14×18 on a Trekell wooden panel and painted in acrylic.

I look forward to more commissions!

I also completed an original piece of artwork. The piece was inspired by Steamboat Willie and classic Mickey Mouse comics by Floyd Gottfredson. I wanted to capture a silly character taking a stroll in a spooky forest. The piece was created on a 12×16 Trekell wooden panel and painted in acrylic.

I’m proud of myself that i’ve taken the route less traveled in my art and have accepted the challenge of working in acrylic. Graphite was my safety medium. Now, I want to master acrylic.


A new piece is in the works and will soon be revealed. Stay Tooned!

Peace, Love, Positivity,

Natalie
