Halloween Clean-up
posted: October 31, 2006
This Halloween will soon be gone With blood and guts across the lawn. Its time to grab the poisoned darts And rake up all the body parts. Then to shovel dark gloomy pits And throw in all the monster bits. Scrape and clean gooey stuff that clings And bag them with the ugly things. And now to rest and take a snooze To await the horrors of tomorrow’s news.

Rich, did you read about that guy in Mattapan or Roxbury that was killed and butchered by his deranged son. Body parts in trash bags in the lawn. Happy Halloween! Cute poem!

Spooky. I'm not knocking on your door, no way! Leave the candy outside, please. L

Did you send this one to the New Yorker? Nice piece, Rich. Great texture in this one.

Not a New Yorker piece. It is a Great Arrow greeting card.

Excellent job my friend. You can give up the mouth harp and go into art full time now.

Rob: Run out to Pearls and get the Faber-Castell graphite pencils. They are like buttah. Randy: Are you saying I SHOULD give up the harp? ;)

I dig it Rich. I love the simplified pallette and the way the graphite texture plays against the white skulls. And who knew you were a poet?

My front door bell is ringing like crazy already. What a perfect illustration for Halloween!
