In the story the young boy is raised by the ghosts of the graveyard. Someone still has to go out into the world and get food and clothing for the boy. That job fell to Silas. He is the caretaker of the graveyard, and he provides food and whatever other physical necessities are necessary.

Recently I read a really really awesome book, The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I absolutely loved it. It's about a boy who is orphaned as a small baby and subsequently raised in a graveyard by all the ghosts and what not that live there. It was so much fun that I decided to design some characters from the book as practice. This first one is Mr. Owens. When the young boy is first brought to the graveyard the Owenes are the ones to adopt the small child. Plenty more of these to come. enjoy.

I was finally able to sit back a just do a bunch of art this weekend and it felt really good. Mostly did alot of sketching just to loosen myself up. It was nice to sit and draw stuff that wasn't work related and that I could show around. I did these dino sketches Saturday night and I liked the stegosaurus so much I decided to have some fun and paint him up on sunday. The painting went really quick and only took me 2-3 hours. I need to do more stuff like this. Enjoy.
