Hello! Laura here!

If you haven’t guessed from my work on Night Post, I absolutely love Autumn and all things Halloween, so to celebrate, I’m going to be doing a How To Draw… post on the blog each Saturday. Each one will feature a different spooky character, with a step-by-step process on how to draw them. 

So sharpen your pencils, put on Monster Mash for some mood music, and get creative! Hurray!








Yay, you drew a bat! A group of bats is called a colony. Why don’t you give your bat some friends and draw a whole colony of bats? You could draw fat bats, thin bats, HUGE bats, colourful bats, baby bats, lady bats, or chilly bats with jumpers on! 

I’d love to see your drawings. Share them with me on twitter or instagram with the hashtag #ImproperHalloween

Before you go, here’s a little sneak peek of what we’ll be drawing next Saturday…

Have a spooky week!
