Halloween



Halloween is closing in fast and the veil between worlds is gonna end up 'broken' on October (or Octogre for you Piers Anthony fans out there) 31st. This ToolGhoul tends to show up on that night roaring around on mag wheels and a nasty sense o' humor. Kalamazoo is krazy on Halloween and he definitly adds to the festivities.

So the next time you hear a loud and evil sounding motor rev-ving up and the smell of candle wax is pervasive on Halloween in Kalamazoo...you are probably gonna get chased for a while...unless you got some candy to use as a bribe!

BOO !!!
:-D

This is a wonderfully horrible monster - I'll make sure I've got a bribe just in case he's on our street.

Oh, Ginger...you have no idea how long those vines took to plan and sketch and ink...without screwing up! I was nearly crosseyed afterward !
:-D

Well Melissa, it wouldn't be the first time my art was used for a tatoo. And it probably won't be the last !
:-D

Hiya Megan ! The head was the most fun to ink, but the vines and the wheels gave me some trouble later on.

I love this, Steve! One of my favorites of yours. Excellent.

 
At 4:47 PM, Blogger steve said...

It's me , Anonymous ! BOO !!!
Oh, I definitly have a dark side. You like the grave diggers shovel and the heavy metal guitar ? Well, that makes two of us! This Halloween baddie has an interesting suspension system (and a groovy rock intrumental solo)
:-D

Come on in, MysteriousPoodleCircus ! I think the ToolGhoul might share some tootsie rolls and jaw breakers, if you make a scary face at it first !
(a silly face works too, but scary is more fun!)
:-D

That expression, Alison, is the look of an impending ass-whupping...
:-D

 
At 8:50 AM, Blogger steve said...

That's what I keep saying, Janey. But everyone seems to want to go to Los Angeles and New Orleans...
Hmmmm. Sounds like a bad pattern. Earthquakes and floods, makes Kalamazoo rather sweet in comparison...

:-D

Does that mean I should be giving you some candy as a bribe, Anonymous?
:-O

Hello hello, Janie! You are the second person to associate this with tattoos, I'm flattered! Thank you so much!
