I don't know what to add that I haven't already said about your work. Simply beautiful work, Mr. Drazen. I like the monochromatic, nostalgic feel.

Ellen said...

Very talented you are!!!!

Cindy said...

Delightful illustration!

Kactiguy said...

This is killer dude. You're dead on. I'm dying to see more. And the caption...you slay me. I wouldn't have a ghost of a chance doing something half this good. It has really raised my spirits to just look at this.

Lois said...

Mustashrik said...

drazen,you've done it again! wonderful throwback to those ghost/hammer horror tales, very corpse bride, very drazen ;)

Holly said...

Oooh! Love this! Nice continuation and great classic storytelling with this image. I am actually familiar with the story of The Ghost of Lake Skugog. It has an Edward Gorey feel. Wonderfully done.

leif said...

The ghosts of Edward Gorey and Gahan Wilson must be guiding your crowquill these days, Draz. Wonderful!

Tony Sarrecchia said...

Great job. It has a 50's illustration feel to it...beautiful.

Wignke said...

haunting and delightful piece.

Jeope said...

Wizzo, Mr. Kozjan. And that's a good thing. Some of that almost looks like ball-point pen. Could it be? 'Coz that would be doubly amazing.

Giles said...

Lovely drawing and I really like all the little details.

I love your style, and this illo is so wonderfully detailed with its spidery fine linework. You always achieve the best combination of masterful technique and captivating narrative! I sure wish I could draw like you:>>>>

Holy Smokes...

I just linked to your site from your comments on mine...what a nice surprise...this stuff is great!!! This blog thing sure is making the industry tighter. We gotta all group up and make a wicked project.

By the way. What is the Gravenhurst connection? My parents live there.

angelique said...

how gorey-esque, and perfect for the season, as well. lovely linework.

the doodlers said...

Hi Drazen!! You're doing some dissarming charming quirky spookin' stuff! Perfect for the season. We love the way you Spooked The Smook too! A&J

Drazen said...

Thanks Mark, sounds like a good idea!
My wife's family has had a cottage in on lake Muskoka [sunny bay] for over 30 years, so we try and get up there for weekends when we can during the summer. Nice town and I like Blondies and I've found some neat stuff there.

thanks anagelique
thanks doodlers--ahh poor smook- I imagine the spookin drawings won't be stopping with Halloween however.

Smook said...

probably not.....probably not.......sigh.

Steve Daye said...

I don't know what happened? I left a comment ages ago and it's not there! Maybe it turned... INVISIBLE!!! I love this piece Draz, your stuff is just so darn cool!
