Halloween #SpookMeONP Design Contest

Happy Halloween! Overnight Prints is happy to announce @kit_silvertales as the winner of #SpookMeONP Instagram design contest!

 

WINNER: @kit_silvertales

To celebrate Hallows’ Eve, Instagram users tagged Halloween-inspired drawings and designs with Overnight Prints‘ #SpookMeONP during the month of October. The winning design features a watercolor and gold ink painting of a mage fox adorned with a ram skull against a twilight background. The #inktober illustration by @kit_silvertales was both original and imaginative.

 

 

Inspired by music, books, mythology and history, award-winning illustrator Kit Steele works mostly in watercolors, inks and Copic markers along with acrylics and charcoal to create her artwork.

 

What began as a sketch turned into a full series of animal mages featuring other animals including a bear, stag and raven.

“The fox painting started as a mage or shaman concept doodle. I love foxes and have always been interested in the idea of animal spirits in the various mythologies of the world,” Steele shared. “It quickly took on a life of its own and became the start of a six-image painting series.”

 

Each of Steele’s drawings take up to two hours to complete depending on the level of detailing involved. Paintings from start to finish, like her #SpookMeONP fox, can range from two to six hours.

“I’ve recommended Overnight Prints to multiple people!” she added.

 

More of the illustrator’s artwork can be seen at different shows, including the Alamo City Comic Con, a premier pop culture event held Oct. 28-30 in San Antonio, Texas.
