'October Eve' was definitely one of my favorite sculptures from 2018.
I enjoyed creating him so much, from his smiling Jack O'Lantern head to his snazzy tux & tails, to his dangling spider friend, to his spider-webbed gated surroundings.
To me, the entire piece said "Welcome to Autumn! Won't you step inside and enjoy some Halloween fun?" He stands inside, atop a brightly colored vortex, welcoming all who enter to a world of magic and fun.
As I've said many times before, most of us artists form a sort of emotional attachment to our works. We tend to put so much of our own selves into them, infusing each piece with a very real essence of our hearts and souls ... making it hard to part with them! But I am very happy to report that this jaunty sweet fellow is residing in a home with a very nice lady who fell head over heels in love with him at last year's MONSTERS & MERRIMENT.
I am indoors mostly, as the weather is whipping up into a wintry frenzy outside my window. I watch as the barren trees sway to and fro in the wind, as Jack Frost announces his imminent arrival. No worries, I love the winter and am busily creating more Halloween happiness here at MacabreWebs Studios.
