The Hatbox Ghost by AbigailLarson The Hatbox Ghost by AbigailLarson
Well, now that the opening has passed, I want to share these with you all :) They'll be hanging at Halloweentown until July 3rd 2011. They're framed in ornate gilt frames with a matching oval opening.
Here's a link to the show's website and video of the show: [link]

For those who don't know, these are pieces inspired by the Haunted Mansion ride designed by Walt Disney. Every year, Halloweentown hosts a group art show based on the ride. I was included in the show this year, and this is what I contributed!

For Halloween my friends and I went as Ghede (and a poppet!) to a local theatre party and read tarot, palms and runes for them. This reminds me much of it... these things make me happy.

Now this is bloody beautiful. If you don't mind me asking: do you ink the line work on-page or in-computer?


I haven't been on Haunted Mansion since I was about 7 and even then it was at Disneyland Paris so everything was in French and I am far from fluent. This makes me want to give it another go-round.

That's awesome! I'm glad you like this piece.

I draw all of my pieces in pencil, then apply watercolor on paper. I adjust the levels in Photoshop to make it look like ink, and add color then.

That would account for why it looks so spidery. Thanks.

It's a great drawing. And a great ride to base it on.

Guillermo del Toro is doing a Haunted Mansion movie? Now this I've gotta see. And on the art, I just love your style to death, and when it's put to one of my favorite things in the world, it just gets a million times better. Someday, I'll actually go on the ride, but I live too far away to go right now.

I love the detail of the ripped curtains. It also looks a bit blotchy, like an old photograph.

Very frighting indeed!

Have they put the hatbox ghost back in the ride? I thought that he was removed for "technical difficulties." Very cool picture!

:iconabigaillarson:
AbigailLarson Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
As far as I know, he's still been removed. The official position was that he was too scary for small kids, but you're quite right that the technology was too advanced for the time it was opened. I have no idea if they'll re-introduce him. I hope they will! I know that Guillermo Del Toro is making a "Haunted Mansion" movie that will deeply involve the Hatbox Ghost as a character, so perhaps Disney will consider putting him in the Mansion :)

Both this, and its companion, are truly wonderful. I do love renderings that composed in sepia / monochrome with just a dash of color. Your style sets you apart in such distinctive ways. Thank you ever much for sharing you works. They are such a pleasure to view. Continued success to you in your endeavors!
