Ghost Cat!

October is my favorite month, no question. The colorful leaves, cooler temperatures, and my buddy Boom Boom's delicious chocolate pumpkin brownies. Perfecto. Oh, and Halloween. Wonderful Halloween. The best. Costumes and candy. Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin. Parties. Yes, yes, yes. Do you think other months get jealous? Probably.

To celebrate the glory that is Halloween, this year I decided to start a new tradition: designing and mailing out Halloween post cards. It's a great way to send art to family, friends, and folks I've worked with throughout the year. And it's a neat little promotional tool to reach out to people I'd like to work with. This year's card was "Ghost Cat," a spooky but super sweet furbuddy who will absolutely scare away all of those pesky mice. Totally the kind of guy you want around the house.
