Halloween is coming! We all know that many Halloween lovers are beginning their festivities early this year and for good reasons! Halloween is a holiday that celebrates the macabre, the unpleasant truths of life, and the alarming fantasies that play like movie reels in our minds. This is a time to be aware of mortality, and of the nature of death. A lot of times the monsters we know and love are allegories for a multitude of things such as Death, Danger, Balance, Religion, and many other intriguing things. And besides all of this stuff, a lot of people just love monsters! Just like me.
Today I want to post about the series of Halloween Monsters and Spirits that I’ve been working on and sharing it with those that want to celebrate and decorate this Halloween. This design features my Witches Brew idea which features a very large eye in a flaming cauldron. I was thinking about some of the typical things we think about when we imagine Halloween themed witches, and that is usually toadstool, broomsticks, and newts eyes. I decided to skip the newt eyes, and go straight to cyclops eye. I figured we might as well make it more intimidating to imagine a witch slaying a cyclops as opposed to a small newt.
Hope you enjoy this scary brew and hope that you are looking forward to all of my future projects.
