IF. Spooky - Ghost Stories!

BBC 4 at the moment have a series on ‘The History Of Horror’.


Took me back to memories of Saturday nights and spooky old horror films…being too scared to watch but too excited not to.
I love a good ghost story, roll on Halloween!

Hi Mark....This is PERFECTION in greens! I love it...as I do all your work!!! I have to admit to not having visited your blog for ages, I've been missing out! Love your use of colour and shape more than I can say. If you haven't read Cartoon Modern by Amid Amidi I heartily recommend it.
I'e been watching the BBC4 History Of Horror too...looking forward to catching up on the last one tonight. Thanks for stopping by my blog...ah Mr. Ben... shared childhood influences methinks sir :-)
