Posted 8 months ago and submitted by Chantelle & Burgen Thorne | Share link:

Oh, what a joy it was to create the cast for this super-special holiday story! Jam-packed with clumsy werewolves, worried witches, mirthful mummies and other Halloween favourites, Stan’s Frightful Halloween is our second book with Dream Team Mira Reisberg (Art Director), Callie Metler-Smith (publisher Clear Fork/Spork) and Sandra Sutter (author) – and it was the best fun ever!!

We whipped up some uber-scary handwritten typography – how d’you like that ‘Frightful’? – used contrasting spreads of silhouettes (hide) with full colour (revealed – tah-dah!!) and topped it all off with a delicious colour palette featuring the traditional midnight and pumpkin with pops of purple and jade. We even added a little text of our own – see our ‘perfect-for-kids’ recipes for Screaming Donuts, Spider pizza and Scary Soda.

Stan’s Frightful Halloween is due for release on the 29th September 2020 in time for the holidays and can be pre-ordered here.

Chantelle and Burgen are incredible illustrators to work with. The storyboarding for each book is meticulously thought through. Careful consideration is given to each character and the detail and colour of their work is beautiful. They are enthusiastic and also work to schedule. I would highly recommend using them.
