Ogden Was Bent On Mischief

Oops! I know I said that yesterday's post was the final Halloween one, but I forgot about Ogden. He's a Victorian engraving from The Chatterbox magazine and is one of the many illustrations of chubby-cheeked children from that era that creep me out.

I can't explain why. Even minus the mask, he disturbs me. So, what better image for a Halloween collage?

I added color to his cheeks and lips, and now that I'm looking at it on the computer screen, well, I may go back and add color to the mask. The text is from a holiday crafts book and the smidgen of orange is from a recycled book proof. 4.75" x 4.75" on archival mat board.

Matted to fit a standard 9" x 9" frame. $75 + $7 shipping & handling.
