Heads and hearts and skulls, oh my!

I had so much fun sculpting anatomical hearts last Saturday! I was on a roll, I tell you, and spat out not one, but three of them. (In the background are some of the Day of the Dead skulls I've been working on as well)

The center heart is special: it has a big slash in it, and will be 'stitched' back up.

Not content to stop there, I continued well into the wee hours of the night, creating a funny, odd character with bugged-out eyeballs, and long, gnarly-veined, sinewy arms with spidery, bony fingers. I have a definite plan for those but won't post more pics until 'he' is done.

Excited about the Pumpkinfest in Franklin, Tennessee! Yes, I will indeed be sharing booth space with my friends from EVIL PUMPKINS (the Coffinberrys - Tanya and her husband Jeano). This is gonna be huge fun!

Just a few photos from downtown Franklin during the autumn. A small town established in 1799, but big on history and yes, many hauntings. After the Pumpkinfest draws to a close, I'll be taking part in the Cemetery Walk through some of the oldest graveyards. I mean, what better way to end the evening, eh?
