“There Was an Old Man with a Beard”


This weeks Colour Collective color was Nougat.  I based my illustration off of the Limerick by Edward Lear, “There Was an Old Man with a Beard”.

There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, “It is just as I feared!—
Two Owls and a Hen, four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard!”

“This Ghost Belonged to Me” Colour Collective: Pearl


This weeks illustration was based off Richard Peck’s book “This Ghost Belonged to Me”.  It was also made into a movie by Disney in the 70’s called, “Child of Glass”.  In this story moment, the boy named Alexander is talking to the Creole ghost girl Inez.  She’s telling him that he must solve the riddle about the Child of Glass before Halloween.  If he doesn’t she’ll be cursed to haunt him for the rest of his life.
