Happy Halloween!

 

Dracula at the Shores of Whitby

Happy Halloween everyone! In honor of the spookiest holiday I drew this homage to one of the scariest characters out there — Dracula. In Bram Stoker’s original tale, Dracula is said to come to the shores of England at Whitby, during a foreboding, terrible storm. Whitby is just an hour and a half away from where I live, and I’ve visited it a couple of times and it’s a charming coastal town with some good seafood and that 19th-century-resort-town feel. So I liked the idea of combining a view of Whitby Abbey with Dracula coming to shore in the form of a bat. (I’m taking a little bit of artistic license — in the original story he comes to shore in the form of a large black dog. But I felt like drawing  a bat!) I hope this adds to your Halloween fun today — Boo!
