Day 10 hop

by Rick St Dennis

Ghostly Creatures
Part of my huge prize 2015 Halloween Hop
I will be giving the links as soon as I find them
Background Abandoned and Bottle of Ink and Nightmare
for Mischief Circus
Printed onto neenah and coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils
Don't forget to visit the amazing blogs taking part in the hop.. there could be some prizes on the way if you leave some awesome comments. We all look forward so much each year to these wonderful 31 days of creepiness....

Now we have Caroline with a very bad headache in the bathroom if anyone needs 'to go' you will have to visit the outside loo by the back door. Luckily Leigh and Mary escaped the bathroom.. all limbs intact leaving a trail of popcorn.
We are going to need postal rats... messages need to get to  the lakeside. The creatures there are experienced and brave. The Dust Bunnies themselves couldn't leave the house... they would be blown away like tumbleweed. The cellar rats agreed to go after finishing off the popcorn. This time they were going to leave by the back door, they had lost some of their family members to the velvet fiend by the front door and they weren't going to get caught out again. Some of the larger spiders rode the rats as they could shake off some of the droplets of potion more accurately.
Thing wasn't going to leave quietly. He found his way to the afterlife was blocked by something resembling cold porridge and really could we blame him for not wanting to oooze through it... he was now just a ghostly figure haunting the outside loo. As he died near a loo so he ended up stuck near one.
Lightening was crashing, illuminating  the cracked timber and peeling paintwork and Thing wasn't alone. Squee was there on the roof glaring cross eyed and trying to hold his nose against the stench (not a good look).


  1. Was just reading your bio.
    I wore contacts for many years
    and always had to wear sunglasses
    because of the glare. Now that
    I've had cataract surgery I still
    have to wear the sunglasses because
    of the glare. One time somelady
    commented about how "she's the lady
    who always wears sunglasses - even
    in the winter". I smiled sweetly
    and ignored her. thanks.

    1. Hi Mary, I have been asked if I wear them because I have a hangover..once someone actually leaned forwards to take them off me. I think I can understand just how you feel. Now I'm in a wheelchair I don't get so many comments... suits me fine.

  2. I am quiet happy now that the lake rats will be hopefully running into to do battle beside the dust bunnies (I have so grown to love those bunnies!) Maybe the promise of more popcorn will convince them to hurry??? Fabulous merging of image to MC background I can hear the thunder cracking EEK! xx

  3. LOL, now this scene is a riot! Love the ghostly creatures....cold porridge? Oh heck no, the loo is probably the better I'm off to get my popcorn back from those rat thieves...staying clear of the velvet fiend of course!

  4. oh my gosh it is getting so fast here..I am loving the dust bunnies hope they don't blow away any time soon awesome art.

  5. I love this piece - I think it's my favorite so far. Beautiful.

  6. Oh dear, I think I will hold it. There is a rather safe looking bush over yonder.

  7. Love that cloud and the lightning!

  8. Love the image and all that lightning going on! I've lost my way and don't know which way to turn!
