A LIL HISTORY OF MY HALLOWEENS
So it's now been 10 years since i did my 1ST "Trick or Treat Bag special". I remember what sparked my idea to do this artwork too.
Denise and I where at RALPHS that sept getting grocerys and i was looking at a Halloween candy display boxes artwork. It was simple graphic and i just kept starring at it.
I got in my car and doodled some art to look like old vintage Halloween art, i don't know how all the pieces came together to do the bag-spooky activity book-pins etc...,but they did!
and for the past 10 years i have done my annual "TRICK OR TREAT BAG Special" every year!
It's the one item i enjoy the most putting together, and believe me it takes a lot of work, so much so that i really should charge more for it.
Original BAG & SHIRT ART 10 years ago HAPPY HALLOWEEN- & a sketch i drew 2016 for 10 year anniver-scary!
My TRICK OR TREAT BAG & PSOTER from 2010
I have now done 10 of these Bags , with all the spooky stuff you get in them.These have always been limited to 50-75 made and go for sale on SEPT 1ST
so a , "TRUE COLLECTERS ITEM" you are holding if you are lucky enough to get one before they sell out , and they have sold out every year so far!
MY 1ST HAUNTED HOUSE 1976 -AND OTHERS NOW!
"My last year i went Trick or Treating" had a huge effect on me! I saw a few peoples houses who did Haunted Houses with fog-colored lights-monsters-and playing spooky Halloween records!
This inspired me as well as the tv show, "The Hilarious House of Frightenstein" to try to make a lil Haunted House in my moms garage in 1976 which you can see in pic below.
It was really pathetic i took my boogey boards and wrote RIP on them to look like headstones, broke branches off my moms tree , and shoveled dirt into the garage to make a spooky cemetery in one coroner with a cute owl candle hanging from the limb. eeew spooky!
I hid up in the garage rafters as my lil brother dressed as an executioner ushered kids thru the dark garage... lit only by Jack o Lanterns.-good idea! plus had no colored lights back then hahaha
I made ghosts that i had fishing wire tied to "thank you BRADY BUNCH EPISODE" for inspiration. and i would pull ghosts up and down as kids walked scared thru the dark garage!
and at the end the kids were directly below me, so i would drop a dummy filled with newspapers out of the rafters on to them and scream !! One lil boy cried as his mom stood laughing!

WHEN I GOT OLDER AND HAD SOME $$ I STARTED COLLECTING MONSTER MASKS AND MAKING BETTER DUMMIES. AND GOT THE URGE TO START DOING A SPOOKHOUSE AGAIN EVERY HALLOWEEN! SEE PICS BELOW .....EEEW SPOOKY!
IN 2009 Justin Mabry "master MASK sculptor" contacted me thru MY SPACE and asked if he could do a mask based on one of my designs.
He sculpted GRUESOME my Frankenstein mask , we were only planning on doing a limited run of only 13 masks of GRUESOME at the time.
Then Chris Zephro, a collector of Justin's masks asked if he would like to start a company called, "TRICK OR TREAT STUDIOS"
and try to bring back the quality and excitement that masks had in its glory days!
I never would dream when i used my sketelon mask i bought at TOYS R US in 1976 that i would have 13 Monster masks based on my artwork someday!

ED EDD & EDDY'S - BOO HAW HAW HALLOWEEN SPECIAL
In 2005 i was asked by my friend DANNY ANTONUCCI creator of ED EDD & EDDY SHOW, to design the kids in his HALLOWEEN Special to look like my
"TOXICTOONS" Creations for ED EDD & EDDY'S - BOO HAW HAW Halloween special.
I think the show turned out GREAT!!!!!
Now if i can only get someone to do "MY TOXICTOONS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL " some day! Oh it will be so good!
see art below or watch the 22 minute episode here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjdkT0ZIO5I
MY UNKLE PIGORS SPOOKHOUSE HALLOWEEN SPECIAL
Will it ever get made? Who knows?...But If it does i know it will be a classic like, "Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" but more spooky n creepy!
What's it about ? Halloween of course! that's all I will say until it sees the light of day.
A few Frankenstein Halloween STICKERS i have done for previous Trick Or Treat bag specials
The Spooky Halloween mix cds
Each year i do a new MIX CD of old Halloween songs, Spooky sound fx and horror trailer sound bites and creepy comercials.
My friend Norman of the GHASTLY ONES/BOSS FINK gave me a dvd of 100's of old Halloween songs a fan gave him back in 2005.
and when i was making my 1st TRICK OR TREAT BAG Special and trying to figure out what to put in it this was one item i am glad i started making.
A lot of fans really enjoy each years Mix cd i put in the bag!
And its a good cd to listen to a partys, driving to Haunted Houses, carving pumpkins or doing my spooky activity books that come in the bag also!
My 1st SPOOKY ACTIVITY BOOK from my 1st TRICK OR TREAT BAG SPECIAL
On the cover is my Drawing of , "GRUESOME" which became my 1st mass produced monster mask created by ,"TRICK OR TREAT STUDIOS"
Each years book has drawings to color in, A maze page, draw a monster , funny phoney adds, and mad libs, i think up from my worm rotted brain.
"This is thee one thing makes an artist an extremely valuble property!"
It's not just how you draw - it's also what an artist is known for and brings into this world.
I happen to bring everything I love and grew up with , a mixture that has been stewing in my cauldron of a brain since i was a lil Fiend!
Without that an artist is only someone who paints or draws well. But with this secret added ingredient the artist becomes, INVALUABLE!
My MONSTERPIECES App
In 2011 my friend from DISNEY Days "ERIC DANIELS" wanted to make an app where you could take pieces of my characters and create Monsters to look like my art.
So he and I worked together with ideas, as he built it.....and it was called something else at the time, i forget what name it was?
But i played with the first version before it was sold , and sent him some monsters i created and said, "Hey look at my MONSTERPIECES! i created"
A play on the word MASTERPIECE hahaha
I thought that name suited it perfectly because you are creating your own Monster Piece.
It's fun for the whole family and it's the perfect App to play on GLOOMY SPOOKY DAYS or any day if you like fun strange creative things to make!
