Spooky


Everyone else was afraid of the dark dank "Spooky" basement.
Lysan however, always walked lightly and carried a big stick.
The stick she carried just happened to a baseball bat!!!
I've got a feeling it's about to get busy! he he he he
Have a wonderful week everyone!!

When I was a kid the mother of my friend told us that they had " the Cucumber King" living in their basement. And that we should better not go downstairs alone. She was so serious about it that the little boy in me is still frightened of dark basements. And sometimes I am too. ;)

Gorgeous work, as always!
All my best!

I imagine by the expression on Lysan's face that she also carries with her a hefty batting average and is about to "clean up!" Hee hee! Happy Friday to you! :o)

Alicia Padrón said...

LOL!!!!!!!!!!! This s awesome!!!!!

At first I thought she was carrying an axe, and I though to myself, boy thats one tough cookie!!, haha but then I realized I wasn't wearing my glasses and put them on and saw it was a bat! LOL

This is just too good!! I love how you twisted the story, usually is the other way around, you smart talented lady you..! :o)

Krista said...

You are just the funniest! Hey-- it's Friday night, want to catch the show at the Dish and Spoon?

Ana said...

haha...I had a baseball bat when I was a child (which was kind of strange because baseball is not popular here) but I never thought of using it as a weapon against the creatures in the dark :D
I love the look on her face, she's really in control of the situation there. So cool.

Wonderful take on the theme, Vanessa! We used to have a basement like that... You captured the moment perfectly.

Ces said...

Hahahhahah! Look at her! The expressions are precious. Hahahahah! Oh Vee, I made you steer the BBB leaf mobile. I know you are tired and busy but I wanted to give you that honor of being navigator, seeing how Bella is already president baldie and flaunting her medal! Hahahah! Tsup!

Momo said...

Looks like whatever is hiding in the dark is all spooked out by her. Haha! Nice illo.

Ces said...

Oh Vee, I just love it when you say "freakin'". I can just visualize you beautifully smiling from ear to ear. Thank you.

Bella Sinclair said...

Hahahahaha!!! Atta girl!

Daaaaang. Okay, I guess it's time I get out of this girl's basement.

You always make me laugh! I can't draw if I'm not smiling inside, and YOU, girlie, YOU make me smile and laugh and roll around inside. You are my magic. LOVE YOU! Good luck with all that stuff on your desk. Use the bat.

nina seven said...

k.h.whitaker said...

She looks pretty brave and determined, I think I'd stay out of her way and make sure that she was on my team in case of a Zombie Apocalypse.

Loredan Avery said...

Oh no you didn't! Haa haa. You're hilarious Nessa, lubbs you!

Shell said...

Lysan is my kind of girl. Tackling monsters head on!

DEB said...

Another delightful illo Vanessa. Your blog always makes me smile! And I can see you are loving Halloween...I hope your kids are having fun with it too. Ours are teens now, so it's not quite the same. Now they enjoy scaring the little kids. Seems like just yesterday when THEY were enjoying being scared by the big kids!

donny* said...

Well. All I know is I wouldn't want to mess around with her and I'm not even that spooky, but I'll go and find myself a nice hidden corner of the basement. Great illustration! Have a great weekend.
