Illustration Friday : GHOST!

Holy crap! I cannot believe this weeks topic - so appropriate for Stumpytown. 'Why?' do you ask? Well, it just so happens I had an recent 'encounter'.
Last Saturday, Dev and I watched Star Trek, The Wrath of Khan, played a couple hours of LEGO StarWars and went to bed just after 3am. It must've been close to 5am when something woke me - I had a sinking feeling that someone was breaking into our house (I've been having this anxiety for the past couple of weeks) I started to open my eyes so I could put my mind at ease that no one was there (as I had done in the past) but this time when my eyes opened I saw a figure at the foot of our bed! A very tall, slender male, with muscular arms, sleeveless shirt, short light hair slightly leaning and looking down at us. I froze.
I couldn't move I couldn't speak and a flood of tingling energy rushed through my body as if I was fallling. I closed my eyes tight and kept repeating to myself "This isn't real, this is NOT real" I opened my eyes and he was gone.

All I could see were the 3 green lights from the tv/vcr on the wall. I looked to my side and Dev was sound asleep. Ahhhhh! My sister said I must've had a flashback of Khan (muscular arms, light hair) Hahaaaa! Still, it was very...creepy.

Cool, scary story...and such a perfect illo! I like the grey tones and those little touches of green. The facial expression is, of course, the best!
