Happy Halloween!

THE PUMPKINATORPencil Rough

Final Color

I'm trotting out an old one, but this seemed appropriate for the season. This is the Pumpkinator- done for an FOP Halloween special a couple of years ago. At the time, I was drawing almost exclusively on post-its, adding and removing elements to my designs without sweating ruining a precious drawing. I don't do that anymore, but it was fun while it lasted, and gave 3M stock a nice healthy boost.

Anyone who's been faithful enough to return to this blog, after an extended leave of absence by me, I thank you. Those who sent letters of condolence to my family- thank you too, but I'm not dead, as it turns out.

I have however returned to Nick for yet ANOTHER season of Fairly Oddparents- the show that was canceled twice, but just won't die. Say- that sounds appropriate for halloween too, doesn't it?

"Just when you thought it was safe to get up on Saturday morning.... FAIRLY ODDPARENTS 3- The resurrection!"

It's rare to come across a completely new visual, but giant, mechanized jack-o-lantern? That's new.

LOVE IT! That Lego-Pumpkinator is amazing. If you ever decide to build a second one and want to swap for a Pumpkinator drawing, let me know!

Thanks for the comments, everyone!
