Hallowe'en Gate

Vintage orange black Halloween sketch featuring pumpkins on a gate under a full moon.

While Beistle's vintage oeuvre gets plenty of attention (that I don't suspect it will need much repeating here), some of the smaller details get lost "in the shuffle" shall we say? The Kitty Card Game from the late 1920's is often shown with the packaging and instruction sheet, while perhaps the best part, the imagery of the individual items, is only hinted by a stack of nearby cards. I thought it would be fun to create this quick collage of the 10 hatching-effect sketches seen in the deck.

Ghosts, bats, cats, owls, witches, candles, jack o'lanterns, corn shocks, and gates framed by a quarter moon.
