Hey there, my name is Brian Soria. First and foremost, I am an artist and graphic designer from Austin, Texas. You can check out my personal work on BrianSoria.com or peep my instagram. Sometimes I put stuff up for sale, and your support helps me keep Drawlloween going!
Drawlloween originated as a drawing challenge 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 super villain-themed sketch group called the Society of Malice! that'd meet up at Spiderhouse or Epoch or any of the eight billion coffee shops in Austin, 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.
Drawlloween has spawned so many little offshoots, with art groups around the world offering their own take. Wow! The entire purpose was to inspire people to make art, so if you see another prompt list that you enjoy more, then follow your heart! For my sake, we only feature the art that uses the official Drawlloween calendar prompts. But, iff 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'm really humbled that a fun little thing has spiraled into something bigger (and I'm double psyched that it's Halloween related!). I just want to thank everyone for participating. And I mean everyone!
Have fun, keep drawing (and if you feel so inclined check out my personal blog.)
