Halloween '07

I didn't get a chance to decorate the house last Halloween since my son was born a fortnight prior to the holiday. This year, however, I found the time and I'm generally happy with the results. I'm even more excited about is this picture I took of them for the following reason: If you look in the lower left corner of the window you'll see my cat sitting, as he often does, on the window sill, the light has caught his eyes in such a way that they appear to be glowing in classic Halloween cat fashion. I included a close up, because I think it's pretty cool. Also on display here is my costume - Mario (Heather was Princess Peach and Max, Baby Yoshi), and my pumpkin which won first place in the pumpkin carving contest at Avalanche.

The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow

"What was to be done? To turn and fly was now too late; and besides, what chance was there of escaping Ghost or Goblin, if such it was, which could ride upon the wings of the wind?"
-Washington Irving

A Woggle of Witches

To be honest, I'm not entirely happy with this. However, sometimes I just want to move on to something else, so here you go.

This is Halloween

Welcome foolish mortals to Halloween season. I love Halloween. From now until Oct. 31 I'll be watching horror movies, reading scary stories, listening to suspenseful old radio shows, and drawing more Halloween themed stuff. This piece was fun because I included three seasonal stereotypes: the sexy (but dangerous) witch, the Boris Karloff-like undertaker guy, and the mutated, possibly undead-certainly inbred- hilbilly maniac. I'd like to thank the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland from which I stole the background wallpaper design, and my dad who was nice enough to help me with the "Happy Halloween" part of the image.
