Happy Halloween!!!

I’ve always been a big fan of Halloween.  Candy!  Monsters!  Parties!  My mom was not.  She thought it was for devil-worshippers.  Fortunately New York City is full of devil-worshippers big and small who LOOOOOVE to Trick and Treat .  Here the whole affair takes on some outlandish proportions!  Still many lament that what was once a charming time to savor the innocence of childhood, and then scare the bejeezus out of that childhood, has been lost.  The adults are taking over and the main goal seems to be: dress up as the most wholesome and innocent thing you can think of, and make it sleazy.  This is a piece I did recently highlighting that dichotomy.  Hope you like it and have a happy and (if you prefer) sleazy Halloween!

    Love this portrayal of the eerie/funny/disturbing-for-me fact that the Halloween objective now seems to be to “dress up as the most wholesome and innocent thing you can think of, and make it sleazy.”
    Great use of color, great expression, great mood.
