Halloween is celebrated in a lot of countries around the world, and has many traditions and folklore tales attached to it.
Witches, pumpkins, black cats, zombies, graveyards and things that go bump in the night are some of the images that immediately make us recognise an image as being Halloween-related.
Halloween is short for All Hallows Evening, and it was originally a pagan festival that heralded the end of summer, that originated in the United Kingdom – particularly Ireland and Scotland.
The children’s game of trick or treating also originated in Britain in medieval times, but it was originally called ‘guising’, where children would perform a trick (singing, reciting poetry, etc.) to earn their treat.
On this All Hallows Evening, I am bringing you a collection of outstanding digital art representing Halloween. Here you will find many different genres – photomanipulation, digital drawing, illustration, etc., and some varying styles, including cute, dark and sketchy. The one thing they all have in common is the skill of the artist.

I hope you have enjoyed viewing these works of art – not really horrific or scary, but certainly representative of the day.
If you celebrate Halloween, then I hope you have lots of fun tonight and don’t get too scared or spooked!
