About

Hey there, my name is Brian Soria. I am an artist and graphic designer from Austin, Texas. Do me a solid, real quick, and follow me:

Sometimes I put stuff up for sale, and your support helps me keep Drawlloween going!

Drawlloween is a concept I came up with a few years ago in which I wanted to draw a monster a day for the month of October.  It was inspired by Jonathan Coulton's "Thing A Week". (Found my first posting on my old blog here) . I ran a small, super villain-themed sketch group of old coworkers and friends called the Society of Malice! (If you follow the link you'll see only a few posts, but you'll see works from one of the original prompts, Merfolk). We'd meet at Spiderhouse or Epoch coffee houses and draw, draw draw!

From there, a member posted his work to some internet forums, and va-va-va-voooooom, Drawlloween super took off!

Drawlloween is about drawing creepy, spooky, weird things all month long. Tell your friends, and spread the word. I'll try and post both old drawings from years past as well as this year's goodies.

In the past few years, offshoots of Drawlloween have sprung up. The whole purpose was to inspire art, so if you see a differing prompt that you enjoy more, go for it! (For my sake, we only feature the art that uses our calendar prompts). If you see another calendar float around, make sure to tag your ol' friend @Drawlloween on whatever social media you happen to be using, and let people know you follow the O.G. account!

I hope to see some amazing drawings from everyone this year. Maybe, if I can find the time, I'll try and repost some of the awesome stuff I find.

Have fun, keep drawing (and if you feel so inclined check out my personal blog.

    1. Hello. If you search social media using #Drawlloween2015 and the such, you can find previous year's art. There are tabs at the top of the page from previous years (a lot of my art before the challenge really took off)

    1. Absolutely. But the best way for your art to have a chance of reposting, is for it to be on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter. I'm just one guy running all of these accounts, so it's hard for me to search everything several times a day. Thanks for the support!

  3. I'm so excited about Drawlloween since I learned about it last year. One suggestion about fontober or any other projects...please do them in a different month. It's all I can do to do ONE drawing a day with work and life demands. Not everything has to happen in October. I mean, I have to make it to all the haunted houses, watch all the horror movies AND still do all the mundane things life requires. ;)

  4. This is going to be fun to do especially if horror comics are your thing

  5. Are there any rules for mediums used? I've been digging around and haven't really found any "rules" for completing the works ...

    1. Hey hey, my version of Drawlloween (The original) has no set medium. Follow the prompt, and see what you create! (Sorry for the late reply! Thanks for the interest!)
