H AL L O W E E N / The witches are here, they've all come back


An illustrated poem by Oliver Wendell Holmes, a combination of inky pointillism and my signature ink-and-bleach wash technique.

No nice clean fonts here...this is a murky as it comes.

Look out look out boys, clear the track!
The Witches are here, they've all come back!
They hanged them high, no use! No use!
What cares a witch for a hangman's noose?
They buried them deep but they wouldn't lie still,
For cats and witches are hard to kill;
They swore they wouldn't and shouldn't die,
Books said they did,
But they lie! They lie!
