A Very Punk Rock Halloween

It’s almost Halloween! Well, a month away… but still, close enough. My wife wanted me to cut a Jack-o-lantern but she wanted something different. She said “Hey, how about the Misfits Fiend Skull?”. Now, I knew this was impossible because you can’t make it as a one piece stencil so how could you cut a pumpkin into the Fiend Skull???

Well, I decided it was going to happen no matter what. I said “Yeah, sure…no problem!” She went and got me a foam pumpkin from AC Moore while I sat at home trying to figure how I was going to pull this one off.

Well… I’m happy to say it all worked out in the end. ¬†Below you will find the finished product.

It was actually a lot easier than I expected it to be. I suspended the nose on a piece of brake line for a car. I cut the brake line down to size and suspended the nose on it. I originally thought I would also have to suspend the brake line or create a bracket underneath in a T shape, but since the brake line and foam nose are both so lightweight just attaching it to the back and securing it was enough. I think it turned out pretty rad if I do say so myself.

I know I don’t normally post crafts on this blog (though I do make them quite regularly), but I felt that this really fits the theme of this site quite nicely.

While I’m posting crafts I might as well post something else that I recently made for my house. ¬†Below you will find our new door mat.

I stole the idea from Fat Mike though! I saw it while my wife and I were watching The Other F Word on Netflix Instant streaming. It’s a pretty fun documentary if your in to the whole punk rock thing. Anyway, thanks for checking out my stuff! See you next time!

Beheaded

Here is a new acrylic painting that I just finished up. My scanner chopped a little bit from both sides (more-so the right side though). Poor Owl!

Owl-Beheaded

I think I stumbled upon something awesome with these floating heads with the bones sticking out. Hahahahahahahahaha.

I also joined a local artists group in my town called the Media Arts Council. Here is their link: M*A*C, hopefully I can get a couple new shows through this over the next year or so!

Cutting skateboards in half!

death comes

hotel

Two new things I did in the past week. I had an old skateboard laying around so I cut it in half and made both of these. I was really happy with the cuts, I used a table saw and then sanded down the edges. Death Comes Ripping is the name of a Misfits song. Hotel Bella Muerte is just something I thought up, kinda sounds like Hotel California.
