Totally Terror!!

Happy belated Halloween everyone! This year’s festivities were pretty great… made witches finger cookies with my girl, went to a party dressed as a half man/half woman, painted my first scary Halloween painting and took part in a local group show called “Totally Terror” at Madison Art Cinemas. The show opened on the 28th and is up until the beginning of December.

The theme is 80′s horror flicks and features frighteningly good art by my awesome artist friends including Heidi Alamanda, Osiris Orion, Matthew Fletcher, Chris Uminga, Dave Estes, Thomas Drew, Craig Medeiros, Rick Beaupre, Yosiell Lorenzo and more. The show was a lot of fun and brought back memories of all those “old” movies and the feelings that went along with them.

My 80′s horror film was Steven King’s Pet Sematary so I decided to paint the zombie 2-year-old Gage and Church, the cat…

And, as I mentioned earlier, my fiancee Melissa and I tried our hand at Witches’ Finger Cookies and dressed up in some pretty hilarious homemade outfits. Thought it might be fun to share some pics:
