Manikin Trick or Treat

“Calm self-confidence is as far from conceit as the desire to earn a decent living is remote from greed.”
– Channing Pollack

Manikin Trick or Treat

5″ x 9″ Watercolor and Sharpie

Even a studio manikin wants in on the fun of Halloween.  I did this on some cheap paper I had here at the sign shop.  I’m having way too much fun this week.  🙂

My very worst Halloween was when I lived in Huntington Beach, CA and my sister lived in San Diego.  They were having a Halloween party and I didn’t think I was going to be able to make it, since it was on a Friday night and I had to work that day.  At the last minute, I decided to go and I quickly came up with a pink playboy bunny costume.   (Okay… I was 27 and slender)  I got to the party a little late and when I walked in the door…… I discovered….. much to my dismay…. that the theme for the party was dungeons and dragons.  (gasp)   Everyone was in dark robes and I stood out, big time.     Can you say “Awkward”?  😉
