13 Days of Halloween – The Big Spook

13 days of halloween

You might have noticed little random images at the end of the last 12 blog posts.  They were sneak peaks for this.  This is the grand finale for my 13 Days of Halloween series.

It is the biggest, most complicated and detailed art piece that I have ever done.  It has taken me two months, and I have kept it a secret from everyone except my boyfriend Tom.  I suck at secrets, and it has been torture!

Instead of the usual how-I-did-it build up, I’m just going to post the final piece.  Here it is.

I am absolutely in love with it.  I can see ten million mistakes and things that I would have done differently, but I am really pleased with it.

There are 41 “pop culture” Easter eggs – most of them witch- or magic-themed.  How many can you spot?  I’ll post the answers in a few days.

Here’s a short gif showing the progress.

This piece also triggers a new phase in my store – which you’ll hear all about in seven days, so keep an eye out for that.

What do you think?  Any feedback or critiques?  How many of the Easter eggs can you spot?
