Skull And Bone And Robots

I remember a long time ago emailing Rob at with an effusive email. I told him how much I dug his style and haunt and photography and everything. You could say we became good buds since then. Keeping tabs on what we're working on or what we'd like to be working on. Discussing our haunting approaches. Sharing plans or concepts, or the sort of bourbon I'm going to bring with me when/if I ever get out to the West coast to visit. Fun fun stuff.

Rob's a concept artist. And an amazing one. The sort of guy I've bragged to people about. He's worked on video games and done CG matte paintings for television and film. Most recently his team worked on TERMINATOR SALVATION, designing the character Marcus' face. He also did the concept work for the open chest cavity of Marcus, a charred head of a T600, and several matte paintings of a burned and devastated Los Angeles.

Nicest guy in the world. Humble too. I do believe I begged him to let me share this with the Halloween community.

Can't WAIT to see what's next.

Happy; Happier

Man, if I had the knowledge of kilning, I'd be deadly.
At least I THINK I would. There's such a shortage of COOL pottery jack o'lanterns out there. I LOVE these two. Great traditional faces.

Wet And Sticky

New corpses inspired by Rotten Hill's design.

Vile and rotten. Skin sloughed off to reveal wet and slimy viscera.

Sugar Skulls

I have a bunch of plastic skull molds and have made these little guys in the past. I never decorated them with icing though. I just used the smaller molds to make tiny skulls and dropped them in my coffee. Bubbles come up like the things are drowning. Then the bubbles stop...the skulls die...and the coffee turns sickly sweet.

Some instructions.

Tract Or Treat

A fun old favorite. Man, I'm going to start giving out tracts that say: Jesus ate your candy.
