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!

Dorky Pumpkin (363)

I can’t stop drawing Halloween stuff! I went to a flea market today and got some stuff for our yearly Halloween party. One of the things I picked up was a bunch of mason jars because I am making gypsy lanterns this year for my backyard. Hopefully I will have a few done by tuesday so I can post them here with one of my drawings. Anyway, here is todays drawing. It is a pumpkin, I have started making Paper Mache jack-o-lanterns and because of that I sketched a few faces for them today. Since I was doing that anyway, I decided to draw one for this blog as well.

I also did a real quick Photoshop color job on it as well. Hope you like it!
