Spooky Halloween Tree Animation Redo

I just haven't been happier with an earlier, rush animation of a "spooky" Halloween tree hung with skulls, ghosts, and pumpkins. So here is a redo, subject to further tweaking after I see how it behaves in this browser.

When I attempt to "optimize" animations for those still using dial-up, sometimes the end result is not very pleasant-looking.

Vintage Halloween Postcard Graphic

Here's an altered version of a very clever and mysterious Halloween painting from long ago, made into a postcard-type graphic.

I love the old-time graphics. They remind of past times...I'm glad I grew up when Halloween was allowed to be Halloween, and no one became hysterical when children wished to wear "dark" and scary costumes.

Our streets were thronged with multitudes of pint-sized witches and red devils by the dozens. And you know what? Back then, no one had to worry much about their children being preyed upon, as they do now. We ate the treats the neighbors baked. We knew our neighbors, too. And even when we roamed into far-away blocks, we still were perfectly safe & eagerly snacked on homemade popcorn balls and candy apples. No one had to x-ray candy. The past had its problems, but Halloween wasn't one of them.

Halloween Clip Art Graphic: Black Creature on Witch's Broom

A mysterious black creature, possible a possum or a cat, has paid his 10 cents and is taking a ride on a witch's broom through the Halloween skies. His eyes glow green as he speeds through the autumn wind.

With gas prices so high, 10 cents for a broom ride is an absolute bargain.

Yawning Black Cat Halloween Clipart Animation

Free as always...a sleepy little black cat gives a big yawn in this animated Halloween graphic -- it's hard to stay up late on Halloween when you're just a wee black kitten!

Stars blink on and off around his head as he tries to stay awake and alert for "The Great Pumpkin." Who knows, maybe the Great Pumpkin will drop off some catnip or kippers for all good little kittens and cats!

Free Halloween or Autumn Animation Graphic

I'm into the jars's a free Halloween candle animation that would look nice on a blog or website. It is copyright free. Just right-click and save onto your own computer, then upload to your own space.

Looks best on a LIGHT, PASTEL, or WHITE background. Can also look pretty cool on black -- if anyone wants it on black, let me know and I'll place it on a black background instead of the transparent background. Email me.

If you have dial-up, give the gif time to load.

I'll be posting many more free autumn and Halloween graphics in the days to come. In fact, I'm working on a "sparkling pumpkin" tonight. I really love making free holiday clipart for the web! And fall is my very favorite of all the seasons.

Free Fireflies in Cobalt Jar Animation

A blog visitor asked for a "jar only" version of the firefly animation, so here is a quick one of some fireflies in a lovely blue Ball jar.

Not great, but I think it would look cute on the side column of a blog or webpage. It has a transparent background so it will "match" any background color -- remember, the border shown around it DOES NOT EXIST on the graphic itself -- it's just how we have our graphics display on this blog.

This ani shows up best on LIGHT or PASTEL backgrounds.

Firefly Autumn Animation Graphic

Here's a cute animated gif of fireflies in a jar.

Two versions are included, one that loads more quickly than the other, but is not as crisp.

Free Primitive Witch Boot Pattern

I made this pattern last year. I was making and selling prims last year. This year, I'm going to put more up again, but I'm working in papier mache this time.

As to the boot, it's very simple. On one side, I painted it like a button-top boot. On the other, I painted it with a bunch of one-stroke folk-art posies and added something like "Happy Haunting" or "Welcome Fall" or something like that. Unfortunately, I can't find my photo of the flowered side. It was all in purple, orange, and acid green.

The boot is partially stuffed, then fake gourds and leaves are placed in the top.

The toe has been modified on the pattern, because I felt it curled up too much. But if you want it curly, for say an "elf" boot for Xmas, then you can elongate it a bit and make it skinnier. A rusty jingle bell would be a cute addition for the elf boot!

Hope you enjoy.

Free Primitive Kitty Doll Pattern

I made and sold quite a few of these last year. I would reduce the pattern to make a "kitten" version, painted the same way as the mother kitty.

These were painted as "snow kitties" and as "Siamese"-style cats. They had fanciful colors for their ears and noses, and folk art on their stomachs. I would put glitter or mica on them, too.

Hope you enjoy.

Left-click and let the bigger image load.

I *Heart* Autumn

Here's a graphic to decorate a blog or webpage.

Unless you're using an old version of your browser, it should act as a transparent image, so that the background color of your blog or webpage will show "through" all but the wording and heart. We finally uninstalled and reinstalled all of our graphics software and voila, it is working again.

Hope you enjoy. The drop shadow is a bit raggedy, but then again, it's a prim heart.

Harvest Fever: Pumpkin Graphics

Once July 4th is past, I feel that it's a clear shot to my favorite season, autumn.

Here are two free graphics, good for decorating a blog or website.

Hope you enjoy. Right-click and save the first graphic, but left-click the thumbnail and then right-click the second graphic, after it loads the larger image.

The 3 pumpkins look best on a white or light background. I need to go back and clean up the shadows I added, so that it would also do well on darker backgrounds.

More Free Badges, Teeny

A few more badges for decorating blogs and webpages or using as clickables.

Hope you enjoy. We're pulling our hair out over here, as our ability to make transparent images has suddenly stopped and we are scrambling for "why." Even our professor is stumped. Worse, Thane is stumped. Something has gone screwy with our program!

Catch you later!

Tiny Free Blog Buttons

More teeny free blog buttons. These are fun to place on forum threads so that your friends know you have a blog. Just make it into a "clickable image" and they can pop into your blog to see what you've been posting.

Right-click and save onto your own computer.

To make an image clickable, add the following code to your post (be sure to place the code in the "source" or "html/xhtml" window, not the "compose" or "wysiwyg" window, though).

Example of code for a clickable centered 83 x 83 pixel image is below [click on it to pop it up to full size] -- (your image will likely have different height and width, adjust code accordingly), or search Google for some other ways of coding it:
