Grinning Gilbert, Giles Timms 2005

With Halloween coming up I was inspired to create some Ghastly Children. This is Grinning Gilbert complete with ice pick and bone saw…

This was drawn with Sakura Microns.

I am an Edward Gorey fan so these children are also inspired by Gorey’s character designs. For inspirational reference I also used Albert Racinet’s, ‘The Historical Encyclopedia of Costumes,’ with the specific plate shown below. This is a really good book that depicts lots of great costumes.
