Monster-A-Day Halloween Drawings Day 1: Jack Pumpkinhead from Return to Oz

For me, the entire month of October is usually dedicated to Halloween. So I decided to try something new in honor of the month. I’m going to draw and post one monster a day for the entire month! I’m calling it Monster-A-Day Halloween Drawings. I was inspired after one of my friends started a ‘photo-a-day’ project featuring pictures taken from his iPhone.

Some of my drawings will feature monsters you’ve seen before in movies, television, comics or toys. But I’ll also be adding some of my original creations to the mix! I’ll also be using a variety of media, including Post-it Notes, napkin doodles, photo manipulation, sketches, iPhone, pencil, pen – basically whatever I have around at the time.

Today’s drawing is Jack Pumpkinhead from the ‘oh-so-awesome’ Return to Oz! This film thrilled yet terrified me as a kid, so I’d classify pretty much any of the fantasy characters in the movie as monsters.
