bleupencil said...

Creepy as hell... I LOVE it all the same, Martin! This is such a wonderful series of illustrations.

If I may enquire, because I'm interested to know, what's inspiring or driving you here? Well whatever it is, I'm loving this =)

David Germain said...

Jinkies! Fred or Velma wouldn't even DARE try and pull the mask off of that ghost. They'd be shaking in the back of the mystery machine with Daphnie, Shaggy, and Scooby.
Well done. I wonder what ghosts take with their tea?

Clive said...

What great illos for a book of ghost stories these would all be. Marvelous.

GhettoFab said...

hahah that kids expression is priceless!! Your composition is always so flawless! Magical...

SMacLeod said...

Absolutely love it. My favorite so far. Those cahirs are neat, and the red feels great. Nice expressions too. Amazing work!

UrbanBarbarian said...

Criminy! These keep getting better and better, Martin! Amazing face on that poor little kid! The illustration is a small masterpiece and the red lamps perfectly accent the overall design.

When I die, I wanna come back as a Wittig!!!!

Piotr said...

Ohhh, spooky! Very nice!

justinpatrickparpan said...

Man Martin, is this one ever creepy! Can I ask what this work is for? Or is it top secret? You should illustrate a collection of kids ghost stories or something. Kids need to be brought up on this kind of classy/scary stuff. Awesome work!

Gabriele Pennacchioli said...

Beautiful!
Excellent contrast, design wise and color wise.
I hope you'll explore a bit more the ghost/children theme.
If I had a lot of money I would have tried to buy this one.

Jeff Durham said...

Hey, this one's alright, too! Top notch! I think this one's peculiar composition makes it my favorite (so far.) Nice spotting of the red, there.

mikecarloooyeah said...

I dont know why I even bother posting any comments because they re always the same... AWESOME! how are you doing these? Are you drawing straight into the computer or are these more tradional, or both? Either way your stuff is absolutely outstanding and very much inspiring. Thanks for the good stuff keep it comming... please.

Soooo nice! You don't know how much I want these 3 ghost pictures printed and put on my wall!! Really great work Martin! I can't put my finger on what really makes this stand out so uniquely. Must just be a great combination of line work, colour choices and great execution! Keep up the magic!

Hans said...

Martin, my jaw is resting on the floor as I'm writing this! You never cease to amaze me. Again, great unique style, beautiful colors and layout and of course as always, great story telling. Can't remember if I've asked before, but how big are these pieces? You could make a lot of $$$ turning this stuff into posters. I know I'd love to have it on my walls!
