Well today I asked the inktober hat (okay, not a hat, but there’s something about having the list in a tupperware container sound wrong)  what I had to draw today and it said I had to draw the Grim Reaper.

Part of this was difficult since as a diehard Discworld fan I have a hard time regarding this personification as scary anymore… but one perseveres.

In the end I went back to basics basing it on some of the 14th century Dance of Death imagery, Albrecht Durer drawings and some 30s and 40s european political cartoons.
