I love old movies, Rear Window has always been one of my favorites. That movie was a big inspiration for the Spooky Schoolhouse school print. I started sketching a big old NYC style building with lots of windows. I thought each of those windows could tell its own story. From there I imagined the building as a boarding school for Witches, right in the city! A place where they carry around spell books, attend potions class, and friendly ghosts are just a part of their normal school day!– Melissa Mortenson
