This fall I had a show where I now work as an artist in new intellectual property and visual development. Below are a few wood carvings that I did for the show that were based on a Halloween theme (excluding the flying bear). As I mentioned below, I'm a fan of early American folk art. The pull toy was very common back in the day. This is my modern day version of a pull toy, obviously more of a collectible piece of art than a functioning toy. Jack is getting ready for Halloween, so he is holding onto two hand dipped candles that are attached by a wick, and he has a match in the other hand.
Acrylic on Bass wood.
