BOO!


In a belated nod to All Hallow's Eve, I felt like drawing this fruity-noggined ne'er-do-well, Samhain, from The Real Ghostbusters. Not the scariest spirit from that oft-times terrifying cartoon (That honour goes to The Sandman, or maybe the Boogeyman) he's got a classic Hallowe'en look to him that fits the season. Expect my Santy drawing sometime in February.

Ha, I like this one a whole heap, Nicklebeans. Great atmosphere and a lovely drawing to boot. I've never really seen the ghostbusters cartoon for some reason, dunno why. I was probly out playing football or getting some girl pregnant.

Nice, really like the way you did the sky actually. I re-watched Ghostbusters last night and I'm still finding jokes I never registered before. "Listen, do you smell that?" being one.

I was nuts about that cartoon. I actually thought the movie was based on the cartoon, stupidly enough.

Saying that, i barely remember it, but this guy looks pretty familiar. Great drawing too; nicely stylized.

Jesus Declan...That even beats your 'Chris Bachalo is just a rip-off of Mark Buckingham' theory.

Cut me some slack; i was 2 when the bloody movie came out. I saw the sequel in the cinema before i ever saw the original.

Sam Hain was always, ALWAYS my favorite spirit in the cartoon world, and I was supremely bummed he didn't show up in Extreme Ghostbusters, in spite of what the opening credits may have you believe.

You know who the creepiest ghost in that show was? The Grundel. Hands down man. There was a whole other level of real world creepiness going on in that episode that still gives me shivers.

Great job on this one, mate!
