|ozwalled||BLUE BLUE Pumpkin||
A pumpkin dressed up with blue acrylic paint, and then its surface (and the paint layer) carves with Speedball gougers. This was a bit tougher to do than I'd anticipated, as the paint would sometimes peel around places that were being carved. It was also a bit of a last-minute thing. The photos were taken with a disposable camera (I don't own one otherwise), and they came out blurrier than I would have liked. If you look closely, you can see a "BLEW" carved there as well.
|ozwalled||Zombie Chick: Minion of Giygas||
The 'Zombie Chick' from Threed.
For an experimental effect, I added a glossy layer to the sunglasses such that when the painting is hanging on the wall of my apartment, and you're looking at it from a few feet away or more, my livingroom's light is reflecting off the glasses, obscuring the Giygas pattern. When you get closer to it though, your shadow casts onto the painting, canceling the reflection and revealing the Giygas images on the lenses. Each of the lenses is about the size of a quarter. A (bad) picture of the lenses reflecting can be seen here: http://starmen.net/forum/?t=getfile&id=36511&private=0
|ozwalled||Inside the BOOGIE Tent||
This is what REALLY goes on inside the nefarious Boogie Tent.
An actual, honest-to-goodness Baked Yammonster.
made for the Halloween Funfest 2007, I figured that since other people were carving pumpkins, why not carve a YAM?! So I did, with Speedball gouging tools.
Then I cooked it (as well as the parts I'd gouged out) at 350F for 50 minutes (and it seems to have grown a nose).
Then I ate it.
The Mother series is so very delicious.

Tomas Jefferson with his traditional Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) calevera (skull) facepaint on, to celebrate his Latin roots.
