For the fourth and final prompt, “Trick or Treat”, I was inspired by how we trick our eyes with optical illusions! I divided my sketchbook page (which happens to be the last one!) into 4 sections and attempted to recreate some easy optical illusions. (You can watch a process video on Instagram or Pinterest!)
The second piece wasn't exactly an illusion but I love making these collages and asking what word you see first!
The third and fourth drawings played with depth.
These types of drawings are not something I usually do and it was fun to get to try them out!
And that's a wrap for The Spooky Season Sketchbook Prompts! Here's a recap:
Week 2 - Fears & Phobias: An abstract mixed media piece inspired by my trypophobia
Week 3 - Monster Mash: A paper collage and embroidery page inspired by Frankenstein's monster
Week 4 - Trick or Treat
Thank you to everyone who participated--I love seeing the unique ways each artist interprets these prompts. I hope this helped you stay creative throughout the month and can't wait to share more prompts in the future! Happy Halloween!
