It’s not everyday you get to have a go at painting from the top of one of New Zealand’s most iconic views. I could’ve done without sitting on a rock for an hour though! 😛 not complaining though, beautiful view from Roy’s Peak in a perfect day. The hike was intense, but so worth it! 🌻☀️💚

Hello, world! As promised, here is my watercolour process video for my #siren painting. This video was a somewhat difficult edit as I had to include the drawing phase done at #drawlloween2019 and also the painting phase from the last few days. Lots of cropping! 🔪🪓🗡✂️ I just learned how to speed up the video though so now I can fit more stuff in 🤓 It was a really fun in the end. I feel like I’m getting better at editing these videos. So I do hope you enjoy it. This guitar player Siren was done in an A4 size 300gsm watercolour paper. Please DM if you’re at all interested in adopting it or any other pieces from Drawlloween. . . #artprocess #mabsdrawlloweenclub #mabsdrawlloweenclub2019 #drawlloween #siren #guitar #music #mermaid #drawing #illustration #illustrator #watercolor #inktober #artistsoninstagram #artfeature #popsurrealism #lowbrow #artforsale #painting #lowbrowart #rocknroll #artist #sketch

Do you remember her? Yes! It’s Dwaraka the siren again! But now in CMYK. 😊 I’ve been revisiting a few pieces from #mabsdrawlloweenclub2019 and some need a splash of colour. Give it a swipe to see the initial drawing again. I have a process video for this one coming out tomorrow. This and some other #drawlloween pieces will be on my Etsy shop soon. Still under construction 🤷🏻‍♂️ . . #mabsdrawlloweenclub #drawlloween #mabgraves #clouds #halloween #inktober #drawing #watercolor #mermaid #siren #guitar #rocknroll #deathnote #lowbrow #popsurrealism #artist #artistsoninstagram #illustration #illustratorsoninstagram #illustrator #sketch

Jack loved meeting people wearing the same costume as him on Halloween night. He looked into his basket and saw how many sweets he had already, but the other ghost in front of him had none. Yes, he had more than enough and couldn’t possibly imagine someone finishing halloween night with nothing to show for it so he knew exactly what he had to do. 🖤 . . Day 31/31 (we did it!) #mabsdrawlloweenclub #trickortreat . Halloween has been fun tonight! We’re about to watch Red Riding Hood! That’s what my girlfriend is dressed as and I’m the werewolf. 🐺 We have carved some pumpkins too. Lots of trick or treaters knocking on our door. I only jumped the older ones as I didn’t want to get the tiny peoples to wet themselves. :) Happy Halloween everyone! I will do another post later talking a bit more about the giveaway I mentioned yesterday! Nice to meet you all and thanks for the support during the whole month. A bit thank you to @mabgraves of course for organising this amazingly fun event and supporting us all with her infinite kindness. . . #drawlloween2019 #drawlloween #inktober #drawing #sketching #watercolor #graphite #ghost #halloween #popsurrealism #lowbrow #illustration #illustrator #illustratorsoninstagram #artfeature #artist #artoftheday #sharingiscaring

Halloween season for donuts is a living hell. Imagine ‘Dawn of the Dead’ and ‘The Purge’ all rolled into one. The evil candy out there become extra mean and they will go out of their way to find innocent, fluffy, frosted confections to devour. It was only a matter of time now. He had been bit and was now infected with the evilness virus. That dainty donut was about to become one of them. . . Day 30/31 #mabsdrawlloweenclub #creepycandy . . Hi, lovely people! One day to go! Whaaaaaa..!! My girlfriend is mad at me because I stayed up late painting this. But I couldn’t help it, so much fun! Thanks to everyone who’s been following and supporting me throughout the month. By the way, tomorrow I’ll be doing a #mabsdrawlloweenclub2019 giveaway. If you’re interested, be sure to check back here for more info on how to win one of my original drawings from the event signed by yours truly. Are you guys excited about Halloween? I’m dressing up as a werewolf! Will post a picture of my outfit tomorrow! I’m trying to convince my girlfriend to let me scare the trick or treaters, but she’s afraid I’ll make them cry and we’ll get in trouble. 😒 Anyone else dressing up?! . #drawlloween #drawlloween2019 #mabgraves #drawing #illustration #illustrator #illustratorsoninstagram #lowbrow #watercolor #watercolorpainting #inktober #popsurrealism #candyapple #donut #cupcake #thewalkingdead #artcollective #art #artistsoninstagram #artfeature #youredead

‘-What do you THINK is wrong with me?!’ At this point, Mr Pumpkin Guy had lost all his sense of humour. He was getting sick of this. Every October was the same! He couldn’t lie down for a nap without someone trying to chop his brains off. ‘I’m not even cute!’ He would say to himself. ‘Why don’t they chop some young plummy pumpkins instead?’ The nurse said that the doctor would be with him soon. And suggested that he painted his head like a watermelon next year. It worked a treat for her husband. . . #mabsdrawlloweenclub #pumpkinguy . Hi, guys! This picture is a little bigger than that, but Instagram trimmed it off a bit. Only two more days to go.. You guys are doing great! We can do it! #mabsdrawlloweenclub2019 #mabgraves #pumpkin #halloween #inktober #watercolor #sketch #pumpkincarving #drawing #artistsoninstagram #artist #artcollective #artfeature #artwork #lowbrow #popsurrealism #october #autumn #emergency #carvingpumpkins
