for #inktober day 7: a little black cat and a pumpkin, times three!

I don’t know why, but a story my Dad told me has always stuck in my head about this style of drawing — the Droste effect or mise en abyme. He told me that as a kid he had a bag for Halloween candy that had a witch on it, and the witch was holding a bag with the image of herself, and so on and on until you could no longer see the design. That was the first time I heard of this, and so I always associate it with #Halloween.
