NEW POST: Sooooo… did you miss out on artist Joe Whiteford’s “Mumpkins” release last month??? Well, the 3 that you see above are the last three Joe was able to make after preorders, before his mold began to fall apart. He will not release them like this again… he may not even make a new mold. That being said, on October 1st, he will be auctioning one off through his Instagram, and if he sells he’ll auction the next one off on October 2nd… and if that one sells, he’ll auction the 3rd off that Friday. Hahaha… like he will have an issue selling these, gotta love modest artists :-) Don’t miss out on the opportunity to grab one of these… so good!!! http://dlvr.it/71xrvm

NEW POST: Illustrator Michael Skattum found a shop that sells life-size glow-in-the-dark plastic knives and cleavers for Halloween, so he’s been buying them and drawing upon the blade area… then selling the resulting art pieces! Pictured here are a variety of the sold out ones he’s done so far, though he’s open to people just emailing him and commissioning one. Contact Skattum at Mskattum [at] gmail [dot] com about snagging one of these sweet pieces before he can no longer get the GID blades!
NEW POST: Macabre artist John Kenn Mortensen has had one of his illustrations (above) transformed into a sculpture (far above), which @togetherplus Industries is racing to produce in vinyl for a Halloween release. With the largest witch standing roughly 9½-inches tall, these prototypes are already in the wax stage and prepared to have the mold made for actual vinyl pulling! I love Mortensen’s Edward Gorey meets classic Fairy Tales feel, so to see this trio of pieces released will be superb!
NEW POST: Halloween in August?!?! Why not! Artist Joe Whiteford just put up for pre-order his fantastic looking “Mumpkins" or Mummy Pumpkin figures in his online store… and hot damn do they look good! These solid resin hand painted Mumpkins were sculpted and cast by Joe and only 7 were made available… until now. Each will come with a Halloween greeting card with new original art. Standing 5" tall, each will be numbered and had painted by Joe… who, by the way, is uber talented! Here’s your chance to grab one, these will only be available for a short time and Joe mentions that the original sculpt is destroyed and mold is running out of life… so head on over HERE right now to pick one up for just $50. Orders will be shipped in September. http://dlvr.it/6TYTw2
NEW POST: Recently completed as a private commission, Liz aka Blazon Brikhaus was tasked to create ”The Pumpkin King” from Tim Burton’s ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’… and that she did!!! Utilizing the 4” Mini-Munny vinyl platform, Liz proceeded to sculpt over the entire piece, paint it up, and the end result being what you see above… awesome work! Check out the other stuff from Liz in her online shop HERE right now. http://dlvr.it/5QrK0x
NEW POST: Who cares that it’s almost Valentines Day… I know artist @jonpaulkaiser doesn’t, as he just finished customizing a 3-inch Dunny that he is calling “PumpkinHead”! The resin Pumpkin head part was made and cast by SourBones (aka Nick Carroll)… and as you can see, the Dunny arm were replaced with the ears of the figure in which JPK meticiously painted on twigs and branches… so great! Hopefully we will see more of these resin pumpkin head customs in the future… and unlike most of the pieces that we post from JPK that are normally comission pieces, this particular custom was created and put up in his online store HERE… which sold out instantly! http://dlvr.it/4w3WmQ
