From time to time this blog has explored art related to genre and Halloween, and with this post I want to promote the work of an artist I just discovered. This piece is titled “Halloween Frolics,” found at Etsy.com by Grayson Fogg of The Autumlands, a great piece for this holiday season. Here is the website’s description:
In The Autumnlands, Halloween is a month-long celebration that culminates on October 31st with a variety of activities, from solemn to raucous, depending on the region. Processions and parades are held throughout the month, with some being grand, annual events, while others–particularly those involving faeriefolk–arise spontaneously. Here we see a blend of fey folk and assorted spirits out cavorting under a swollen harvest moon. It almost makes one wish you could fly, to join in the fun.
The flying festivities are painted in colorfast watercolor, acrylic, and colored pencil, on a 17″x6 3/4″ sheet of acid-free illustration board, and sealed with multiple coats of clear, archival fixative.
The artist lists several other great works of art by Fogg. Take a look.
