Illustration Friday

I.F. - 'Haunt'

Finally had some time over the weekend to do an Illustration Friday for the first time in ages.  Although I had the time, I didn't have any ideas for the subject 'haunt' so I went googling for ghosts and ghouls and ghastly inspiration but got distracted by the Ghost Chili.  Now I've never met a chili that could get the better of me, in some circles I am known as Asbestos Tongue and this is apparently a pretty fiery specimen - I'm on the hunt for some for the next time I make pizza.  So that got me looking for other things named after ghosts and here are four of them.  The ghost bird is actually an Ivory-billed Woodpecker that was believed extinct until recently - 'GhostBird' is the name of the film about the search for him.  Happy Halloween everybody ... whooooooooooo!
