This is my attempt at an Edgar Allan Poe Jack O'Lantern. I slipped twice on his nose and made it far too small. But I nevertheless trudged ahead and finished him, and here he is. Carved on Halloween 2009.

Google's decorating...

Just saw this over at The Halloween Tree, one of Google's Banner decorations for the past 2009 season, and it tickled what I like to refer to as my "Halloween bone." A lovely, charming little snapshot of what the holiday means to me.

It's a shame I didn't get to see this when it was up and being used. Check out more banner designs over at The Halloween Tree here.

Pumpkin Rot 2009: The Corn Witch

Pumpkin Rot is one of my Halloween inspirations on the web. I know I never would be able to create something even close to the simply beautiful and breathtaking work that the artist has created here... if you have not yet seen the 2009 pictures yet, get thee to Pumpkin Rot right now and behold them.
