Ah, it's that delightful time of year again! That beautiful holiday where we eat turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie until it comes out of our ears on the pretense of showing gratitude for...um...everything I guess. Or it might have something to do with a radically conservative group that arose from the reformation in Europe that traditionally wore belts on their hats.
Either way, I'm awfully excited about that pie.
This is the Thanksgiving Pie Puritan-Bot. His job is to make sure that I eat enough pie to choke a yak over the holiday break. If I don't, there's no telling what he might do with that vaguely musket shaped object in his right hand. So, you know, don't keep me from eating pie. It takes a lot of pie to choke a yak. And whip cream too. Can't choke a yak without whipped cream.

Happy Halloween!

Yes, I am well aware that Halloween is long past, but shouldn't we try to keep the holiday in our hearts all year round? That's probably some other holiday...oh well.
Honestly, I just didn't have these things in my hot little hands until yesterday. I finished them up a little too late to scan them before turning them in, so I had to wait until Joe decided he had waited long enough to convince us that he had actually deliberated over what sort of grade we each deserved.
I'm really pretty pleased with these pieces though. The graveyard could use some work, but I think that that is pretty indicative of a graveyard, don't you? At least it's full of happy ghosts. Or at least remarkably toothy ghosts. And vaguely angst-y gargoyles...er...gargoyle.
I really like the skull weasel though. The assignment was to redo our toy design (you might remember the angry weasel) to a Halloween theme. I actually like the concept picture for this one even more than the finished product. So I've included that one too. Whee! (The finished one is the one one the bottom by the way.)
