Happy Halloween!

Here’s my jackolantern for this year! I initially had a much more elaborate design planned with a bat and a spider “hidden” in the vines along with the skull, but it just wasn’t happening.

I have no plans (aside from food and movies) and we don’t get trick or treaters (sad face!), so my dressing up is minimal.

I’ve got on my Julian Bean fox hat and my Mighty Squirm Halloween tee.


Contrary to popular belief, foxes do not say “ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding”. They scream like someone being murdered.


It glows in the dark!!!!

I hope you all have a Halloween filled with magical tricks and treats!

    I have always wanted to try to make the same lantern but I have never managed to make it beautiful. I don`t know why but it is always broken or looks ragged. Despite that I`m talented and I paint very well. What is the secret?

      This is actually a “funkin”. It’s a faux pumpkin made from foam. I use a dremel tool to carve it instead of a knife, which allows for a lot more detail (at least for me).
