Happy Halloween, ya’ll!

Fancied I had one more time to carve another pumpkin. I did a short series of Western/Horror comics in a stylistic black and white several years ago. I decided to pay homage to that and do a desert scene in such a way as to suggest a demonic winking face. Can you see it? I also carved some bats in the back to project up on the wall.

It’s nice to be back in America for Halloween this year. While we had the BEST parties in Korea (magnified by the fact that it’s not celebrated by Koreans so decorations and costumes were all handmade originals and really brought out a lot of amazing creativity in people as well by the fact that people from places like England and Australia where the holiday isn’t as popular got to really let lose North American style.), I did miss the general spirit. Spooky television shows, hearing the Monster Mash on the radio, seeing bats and spiderwebs everywhere, and also, pumpkin lattes (Yes, they have Starbucks there, but no, they don’t do that one for some reason even though people would probably go ape shit for it. Sweet potato lattes are a year round staple there).

So while I miss my Halloween parties in Korea this year, I did get a very pleasant Halloween. Over the weekend I went to a haunted house a bar party while dressed in my dragon suit. And tonight I’ll hand out candy to trick or treaters while dressed in my dragon suit while watching trashy horror B movies and enjoying my pumpkin carving skills.
