We’re just a day before the Halloween celebration and even if you’re not planning a theme party, you can still enjoy the spooky atmosphere. James Boorman inspired us to dedicate this post to Halloween, with his illustrations being exactly what you need these days.

How is James inspired from Halloween then?

For us Australians, Halloween isn’t particularly celebrated the way it is in other countries, but for me, it’s an opportunity to regain that fun, warm sense of community that we grew up with and reintroduce ourselves to our surrounding neighbourhood. These days, this sometimes feels a little lost and we tend to keep to ourselves.

I love Halloween because I get to indulge in nostalgia. Growing up in the 80s was pretty amazing! I get to relive some of those pinnacle horror films that came out, which are just cheese now, but still so great! More importantly, Halloween gives me a great excuse to draw some spooky characters which put me in my element! 

Feel free to check more illustrations from James Boorman on his site.
