Ghost Japanese Brush and Ink

Let's doodle, draw, sketch, or paint some yokai or ghostie for #Uncannytober2022. Bee has made a list of episodes and the prompts -- a different one corresponding to every day of the month of October. I put her list up here along with links to the relevant show.

If you want, you can re-listen to the episode for that day and use it for inspiration to let your creative freak flag fly. I'm going to be trying my not-so-artsy hand at it as well. Just remember #Uncannytober2022 on social media so we can all see what we're all doing.

Mostly, no pressure, all fun. Participate when you can. Let's be weird.
