It's the Most Wonderul Time of the Year

And we're not talking about Christmas.

We're talking about the REALLY most wonderful time of the year. At least in the book of Haddad.

It's the yellow-electric-hues, the neon orange hues, the blood red hues. The crisp wispy air. The perfect chill that makes snuggling under a blanket just THAT much more enjoyable. The pumpkins. The corn. The crispy leaves. The costumes. The CREATIONS!

It's my birthday month. It's mysterious, full of fright, full of family memories, and full of annual apple picking. Jack-o-lanterns. Black cats. Witches. Candy. Hay-rides. Haunted houses.

Seriously, can someone name me a month and corresponding-happenings that could ever possibly beat this?

Admittedly, I've fallen off of the costume-band-wagon in recent years, however the discovery of the following astounding design by a MAC make-up artist has truly inspired me. I've never seen anything like it.







Speechless.


Additionally, I've done some serious research on a subject vitally important at this time. And I'm referring to my research on pumpkin carving. Who came up with this idea of pumpkin-stacking? Flippin' genius. Two pumpkins stacked, stars carved, and a lovely winding creepy black tree is painted on to bind the pieces together. Love. I'm also newly obsessed with white pumpkins. So mod man.

Looks like Lichtenstein to me... though he worked from comic books, he typically used these colors, and the oversized halftoning... I think this is what they were trying to accomplish...

see this reference, complete with pearl earrings: http://www.abc.net.au/news/features/img/Artsblog/lichtenstein-blog.jpg

Very cool and clever makeup. Combine it with THIS and you've got a killer costume! =)

gwadzilla said...

wonderful!

this stuff is awesome...

but who has the time?

we carved pumpkins... we paint faces... but the works of these people

these are either their jobs
or
they do not have jobs!

still inspiring

but I do not think either of my kids would stand still to become a pop art piece
