Several people asked if we were going to have a Halloween-themed piece for this year, so here's Mona enjoying a nice game of bobbing for apples.  Looks to me like she's been losing pretty badly, at least up until this point.


  1. Turned out great Andy. Glad you did a Halloween-themed drawing. :-)

  2. Pardon my inherent non-Americanness, but just what does bobbing for apples have to do with Halloween?

    1. It's the only time of year that it comes up in conversation.

  3. Really great "action arc" from the barrel on up to the top/back of her head, with very judicious use of outlines to define and separate/clarify the various elements in Mona's grand bob. Interesting composition too with all the action on the left side while the right side is very restrained, which I suppose makes sense as she is tied...

    Anyway, Happy Halloween to everyone...hope your activities are as invigorating as Mona's!
