Ink Ghosts by heikala Ink Ghosts by heikala
An illustration for silk screen printing.

I wanted to try inking for once and got inspired by the works of McBess, yet all of my friends see this more like the style of Tove Jansson. Well anyway I really like how this came out and I´ll be selling this as silk screen prints and on tote bags in upcoming events. (I´ll make a journal of those in near future) 

(EDIT)

Thank you so much for the DD! :heart:

You can see the finished bags in my tumblr here: heikala.tumblr.com/post/778272…
Also I´ll be opening a webshop in August where you can buy the screen printed tote bags : )

Ink Ghosts by heikala is a lovely mix of lines and pointillism, all to make an adorable illustration. ( Suggested by Scarlett-Aimpyh and Featured by STelari )

Mindless now, and mindless after death.

As much as we think we know, we don't have a clue.

This is a very cool piece, at first I though it was kind of boring because it seemed simple, but then I payed a little more attention and realized it wasn't. I like the stippling for the ground and the hatching for the trees. I also like the simplicity of the ghost and the girl, and the white border around the tree's. This is fab :D

To me, this is kind of like a sad cartoon. I think they're my favorite kinds of cartoons.
Her expression, contrasting the ghosts', really sticks with me. I'm not sure why! :b
But I like it a lot.

Katsoin, että tutun näköinen kuva saannut DD:n ja sitten tajusin, että minullahan on tuo kangaskassissa jonka joskus taidekujalta ostin xD Ihana kuva, on saannut kassikin kehuja tutuilta ja vähän tuntemattomiltakin kun sen kanssa olen liikkeellä ollut, ehdottomasti oikeaan osoitteeseen laitettu tunnustusta nyt :'D

Are the lines on the middle of their faces mouths or noses?
