Halloween Art

so, it's Friday.

were you doubting me and my dedication to weekly publishing?

i am in two Halloween shows and here's the stuff.

Mr. Bones Plays the Blues, Larger : Click Image

pretty self explanatory. it's also a shout out to Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked this Way Comes which I read a month or so ago. it's one of my favorite books now. Bradbury's prose is stellar.


a few weeks ago i posted how i had this idea i was really excited about.

well, this was the idea:

Scooter Ghoul, Larger : Click Image

when i was a kid my mom gave me subscriptions to several kid's magazines, Ranger Rick and 3-2-1 Contact among them. one of the mags had this cool space diorama where you punched out all the characters and the ships and there was a background too. i thought it was the most awesome thing ever.

sitting one night, the diorama just popped into my head and i decided i wanted to try this sort of thing.

six layers of illustrated goodness. bought the shadow box on sale. had a great time. will do more. (Mr. Bones started out as one, but then i ended up liking him flat.)

note: if you would like to see these pieces in real life, and find yourself on south lamar, between now and November 30, visit: Lowbrow Emporium, 2708 S Lamar Blvd, 78704

Mr Bones would have been perfect for the Illustration Friday topic: The Blues a few weeks ago. Great, great piece. As always I love the palette.

The 3d one is brilliant and the robot sketches are awesome. I could spend all day looking at sketchbooks. Post more pages yo.
