He Ain't No Frosty

Creepy Snowmen
I've started experimenting with scary snowmen, and snapped a quick photo to show you the first two out of the gate.

Decided to go with a classic look for one, from his carrot to his buttons. And the other has a snow-skull for his head.

I'll take some nicer photos when I get them set up in their winter setting. I have two shows coming up in the city, and I need to update the table display to reflect the change in season. I'm fairly excited to have it all set up because I've never done a creepy Christmas display. It's like rediscovering Halloween and Christmas decorating all over again.

My only apprehension as I travel down this path is the unavoidable references or comparisons to Nightmare Before Christmas. It distracts me during the creation process, and I've already steered away from a couple of interesting ideas because of it. It's a bit frustrating.

I know I can't stop people from equating Halloween-flavoured Christmas decorations with Tim Burton, and I'll try to infuse these pieces with Ghoul Friday Flair until they brim over with my own artistic signature. It's the best I can do.
