Breaking my autumnal vacation

I really needed a break, what an incredibly busy last few months! Now I feel refreshed, recharged & ready to start creating new imagery & forms.

First up, I am making a set of 6 "Candy & Toy" boxes based on the Phoenix boxes of the 50's & 60's. Each measures 3.75" x 2.5" x .75" and features some cheap candy & a mechanical paper toy. There is also a trading card to cut out on the back! The 6 Characters will be The Reaper, The Moon, The Black Cat, The Jack O Lantern, The Bat & The Witch. I hope to have a new one on ebay each week starting 11/21. 20 of each character will be made. When all six are done I will create a display box to house them.

Pictured is a prototype version of the Reaper (The one with the Pumpkins) and the regular version of the Reaper.


  1. Those are about the coolest things I have seen in a LONG time!
    I could so see The Reaper package for those candy cigarettes I used to get when I was a kid!

  2. Thanks! I looked up a recipe to make candy cigarettes the other day, so I may try to fill them as such.
