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.

A loyal Overnight Prints customer for three years, Steele has ordered double-sided 4×6 postcards and double-sided business cards with rounded corners for Silvertales, a selection of Steele’s 8.5×11 prints.

 

“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.
