This is my annual silly Jack-o-lantern art. This year he is a living pumpkin who was transformed into a sentient jack-o-lantern by magic. He is a little bit nutty. Sitting on the porch waiting helplessly to be hit over the head by a thug kid with a baseball bat has made him crazy. The anxiety tinges every aspect of his personality. He talks to himself to try and calm his racing halloween mind.
Having a mundane day job that forces me to obsess over countless vector shapes and massage many nodes into flat designs for screenprint has made me better at making shapes to paint for my personal art. That pumpkin leaf is a great example of what I am talking about. It is a tiny detail that improves the pumpkin painting as a whole.
Ghosts are cheeky. They like to float around on Halloween and make faces at unsuspecting kids. Just because they are cursed to wander the earth forever doesn’t mean that they can’t have fun. Neener Neener Neener. Halloween Ghosts are transparent.
Tentacle monster dressed as a Witch for Halloween. She is wearing a pointy Witch’s hat and a green prosthetic nose. She also painted her face with green makeup and is holding a trick -or-treat bag. She likes to go out and walk around her spooky block and prod her monster neighbors for candycorn and traditional peanut butter candies. She doesn’t care if it pulls out her fillings and rots her teeth because she has replacable teeth like a shark. She is aware that her teeth scare other monsters and she keeps her mouth closed.
I watched Friday The 13th part 3D on HBO a few days before Halloween when I was a very little kid. It was the movie that introduced the iconic mask in the series. It scared me so bad that I had hocky mask nightmares for a few weeks after. For the first time in my life I was unable to sleep. When I closed my eyes in the dark – I saw Jason walking towards me through wooden cabin window panes. That spooky 80s sound effect echoed in my head as I tried to sleep. Watching it now it is comically bad. But as a little kid a remorseless killer hiding behind a mask was the most frightening thing imaginable.Watch this review on youtube. Warning not for kids.
This is a robot dinosaur eating Santa Claus. Dinos are bah humbug types. Christmas makes them sad and angry. They spend most of their time leading up to Christmas devouring people in red suits who are ringing bells. They are merciless in their mechanical rage. Rawr1111!!!!!!!!
Pumpkin spice latte monster getting geeked up on caffeine and sugar. Orange pumpkin monsters like to walk around the Walmart toy section after they have had a Venti Starbucks latte or two. They like to chatter their teeth and look at the keen packaging and spiffy design work and dream of one day having a room full of the latest toys to play with. They know they would get tired of them as soon as they load them into their car but they still like to entertain the idea of rows and rows of brightly colored toys.
