Halloween is my holiday. Well, not officially my holiday. I don’t own it or anything, please feel free to celebrate, don’t let me stop you.
What I mean to say is that in my thirty years I have had a number of epic Halloweens. Epic. Some I can’t even mention because I’m afraid the statute of limitations may not have passed.
Oh, to be young and stupid.
Halloween is also the only holiday with a bit of edge. You can dress up as something bloody and disgusting and people will give you candy for it. Try doing that at Christmas, believe me it won’t go over as well.
Four years ago I did a Halloween illustration, and people seemed to like it so the following year I did another, and have been doing one a year ever since.
So here they are…..
