Welcome to PooBahSpiel, the online voice and home of the creative mind of Mark Monlux, Illustrator Extraordinaire. Prepare yourself for an endless regaling of art directly from the hand of this stellar artist. And brace yourself against his mighty wind of pontification. Updates are kinda weekly and show daily sketches, current projects, and other really nifty stuff.

Drawlloween 2016

A new holiday tradition for artists, both armature and professional, is to participate in month long drawing challenges. Inktober is for those you are strictly staying within the pen and ink medium. Drawlloween is for any medium. Each provides a calendar in which suggested themes for each day are given. Once your image is ready you post in on social media with a hash tag so that others who are participating can see what you what you came up with. Aside from that there are no rules. In years past I followed Inktober’s website and posted images to his blog there. This year I decided to do the Drawlloween calendar, but to still stick to an ink brush as my medium. I was successful in doing one a day and here you can see my whole collection for the month. Happy Halloween!
