Last year I did this painting of Spike, the Rose Goblin from my friend Seanan McGuire’s book Rosemary and Rue. I decided to rework the illustration for this weeks Illustration Friday’s topic Spooky.

You can buy the book here, it’s awesome!

This image was a speed paint completed in approx. 5 hours.

Here’s another version with slightly different colors

Spooky 2
