Halloween City Sketching: Great Spooky Fun!

We had so much fun sketching at Halloween City, a popup store in the former Petsmart in Albany (next door to Berkeley). They had a great sound system and were playing a variety of good music from stormy classical to Halloween-themed pop hits and dance music.

Along with all the costumes, masks, props and decorations they had a bunch of displays with computerized life-sized ghouls that pop up or start talking or laughing. This spooky butler was part of one of those displays.While I was drawing him the store manager had to climb into the display to change one of the ghoul’s suits. I wonder why.

They also had some inexpensive skeletons and skulls that were close enough anatomically to the models I’ve wished I could afford for studio anatomy practice that I may go back and buy one.

You must see the fantastic sketches from the other Urban Sketchers in our group. You can see Cathy’s funny post here, Micaela’s here, Ceinwen’s comprehensive set here,  Cristina’s here and Sonia’s here.
