The Moon by MrDinks
The Moon
Just a quick little thing done for funsies. The wife and I have been putting together a website and our first book so that's been sucking our time but we'll have news soon!!
Dreamer by MrDinks

For this one I wanted to break a few children's illustrations stereotypes. The normal main character for these kinds of things is a white boy. I've got an African American girl wearing blue (as opposed to the usual pink) and dreaming of being a superhero. It just came out that way naturally for me and I realized how I was going against precedents and I was glad for it.

Baby Ghosts of Clermont by MrDinks
Baby Ghosts of Clermont
My wife and I volunteer at a state historic site called Clermont (we also got engaged and married there!) and this past Halloween they did candlelight ghost tours where the guests were guided through the house when a fortune teller has a mishap and unleashes the ghosts from the site's past. Each person played a particular historical figure, my wife and I bookending the tour as lost lovers Richard Montgomery and Janet Livingston.

During one night while I was waiting for everyone to get dressed, I drew my character Richard Montgomery as a baby. We had a little chuckle until we realized it would be very funny to see them all as babies with the tour guides the teenage babysitters. It kicked around in my head for awhile until one day it just fell out of my digital pencil. So, without further ado, the baby ghosts of Clermont!

If you're interested in the process or Clermont, check out there blog!…
Ghosts Love Candy by MrDinks
Ghosts Love Candy
There’s something you should know.
And this could come in handy.
Just as it did one Halloween night,
For a Trick or Treater named Randy.
Randy was a ghost this year,
And was feelin’ fine and dandy,
When a haunting voice softly said,
“Do you have some candy?”
Randy turned to see three REAL ghosts
With eyes the color of cotton candy.
“Well do you, my ghostly friend?”
The second ghost asked Randy.
“I’m no ghost,” Randy replied.
“But I sure do have some candy.”
Randy held up his pumpkin basket,
Which was filled to the brim with candy.
The ghosts dove in with a crunch n’ a munch,
And ate all of Randy’s candy.
Randy learned something that Halloween night
Which was not so fine and dandy.
All Hallows ghosts love Halloween most
Because they REALLY love candy.
Ok, guys and gals!!
