This is a portrait of Carolyn Jones as Morticia Addams from the TV show “The Addams Family”. She is probably one of my favorite TV moms of all time. I wonder how many little goths she influenced with her floor length black gowns.
I used Inkpad, PicGrunger and Sketchbook Pro to put it all together and add the spiders. I wanted to give it an old, antiqued look, as if you could almost smell the musty scent of old books and papers.
