Many moons ago in my undergraduate days at Boston University, I made 2 little tissue ghosts for Halloween and hung them up in my room. So far, so good.
Then Halloween came and went… but… I had become rather attached to the wee little ghosties. Unfortunately, with Thanksgiving around the corner, I couldn’t very well have spooky decorations up any more. What to do?
Simple: they had to stick around in cognito. And thus was born a year-plus-long saga of festively costumed tissue ghosts. There are pictures of the originals somewhere, but this past Christmas break I thought the idea might make for an amusing calendar. So I set to work with crayons to memorialize these wacky spooks in cartoon form. I’ll post the months as they arise throughout the year, as a reminder that anachronism is no match for Crayola and an eccentric imagination.
