It has become a bit of a tradition now on the livestream to work on a month long spooky illustration through October. Starting back with the Maple Lodge in 2020, this year I started working on a Haunted Library at the beginning of October and ended up carrying it through the month. Loosely based on one of my favorite places in Ohio, the Allen Memorial Library, we put together a list of ideas on the stream and crossed them off as we completed each. Our final stream on Halloween concluded with animating elements of the scene in CSS.
