Gearing Up For Halloween & Vine

It's hard to believe the Halloween & Vine art show in Petaluma, CA is less than 2 months away! I have started working harder at having new designs ready for the show. I hope to have several items exclusive to that event.

First up, these are the 2 prototype "Hell Fire Lanterns" The final piece will have a variation of the insert to have more impact. This measures about 7" x 9". One side is fully illustrated, the other has cut away features to act as a lantern. I am only making 10 of these, not counting these 2 prototypes.

I have been wanting to do a jointed cat piece for sometime, and finally just finished this design. It measures about 12" x 17" when fully extended. I will make 20 of this design.

Finally, it's about time to release the 4th volume of my book, "10/31". This is the rough sketch for the front cover painting, more info to come in late August.


  1. Matthew, Words can't really describe how cool your Hell Fire lanterns are!
