Happy Meowloween from the Four Housecats of the Apocalypse!

Happy Meowloween, and keep us safe!

Happy Meow-lo-ween from The Four Housecats of the Apocalypse and from their mama Mimi!
And Basil and Bella and Hamlet and Mariposa and
Sienna!
And from me too!

Below is the original sketch, actually done on Halloween evening 2012 as I handed out candy on the porch and The Four Housecats of the Apocalypse hovered inside, by turns curious and uncertain. That’s my Halloween treat—something new to sketch every single day.

“Who are they and what do they want?”

Indeed the Fantastic Four were spooked on Halloween night as Trick-or-Treaters knocked on the door and I handed out candy. They love guests, it was all that knocking they weren’t sure about, plus the occasional police cruiser, ambulance or fire truck with flashing lights just slowly cruising by to keep the streets safe. And I was outdoors, what was I doing out there? It was all so strange.

When in doubt, stick together. And make sure your eyes are really big so I can count how many are there.

This is the greeting card design that I later adapted to a garden flag.
