i’m jealous of marcel dzama

Ooooooooh, spooky! I have to admit, I’ve had these drawings, by Canadian artist Marcel Dzama in my bookmarks folder since August… and yes, I was waiting til Hallowe’en to post them! Creepy trees, girls in masks, and a group of bat-scouts! YES!!! Not only is his creepy subject matter perfect for today, but so are his art supplies… ink, watercolor, AND rootbeer concentrate! Now that’s my kind o’ sweet treat!

Have a safe and happy Hallowe’en tonight!!!

    I love these drawings- they are somewhat Wes Anderson-y (the scouts remind me of his latest movie Moonrise Kingdom). I love the sense of humor of using root beer as an art supply.

    I am always impressed.
