Kandy Coated Kackles vol 14. The Creeps of Christmas!


Download


Christmas is great, so it may seem
I bet some of you still long for Halloween
Don't fret and don't panic
Here's some yule tide songs to make you go manic!
Its called The Creeps of Christmas
And as you can see
The creeps celebrate the season rather differently

Krampus catches naughty kids
and brings them to his lair
Wolfman is jealous of Santa
He may have more hair!
The Bumble tries to eat Rudolph
Though he's too slow and dumb
Frankenstein is very festive
Putting up the mistle thumb!
Dracula will suck egg nog
From a jugular I bet
This gift is for the Headless Horseman
Its a severed head in a basket!

The Purple People Eater can still rock and roll
The Ghost of Christmas Future is for whom the bell tolls
The Gremlins always cause such a clatter
Jack Skellington creeps in to see what's the matter

The Grinch just hates Christmas
The whole damn season
Boris Karloff suggests
No one quite knows the reason
And Jacob Marley sits tortured in his heavy shackles
He'll cheer up when he listens to some Kandy Coated Kackles

Croc-a-billy Sculpture

So here's something I completely forgot about. I made this sculpture like last summer but never really said anything about it and kept forgetting to post photos. I remember going to a Maurice Sendak show held at an animation gallery and seeing some sculptures that Dr. Seuss did of random made up animals. It got me inspired to do the same! So I chose my favorite animal and combined it with my favorite kind of music and this is what happened! A rebellious rockin' reptile equipt with leather jacket, greasy hair and biiiig teeth!











Here's some making-of photos. Started with tin foil and then covered it with super sculpy.







Baked it in the oven and then painted it with acrylics!



Sculpting is really fun and the end result is always satisfying. I definitely want to try it again once I get some free time. Maybe I'll do something smaller, this guy kinda takes up a lot of room...

RIP Ricky





Ricky Garduno was a one of a kind, genuine, real person. His ideas, art, jokes and interests were intense and like nothing else. His opinions and outlook on life, even though many people didn’t agree with them, were strong and always backed up by legitimate reasons and arguments. He didn’t care what anyone else thought, and thats what I loved about him, I had the pleasure of meeting Ricky twice and being online friends with him all in-between. Its a tragic shame he left us so early, but like all the great people that are taken away from us too soon, that might make him more legendary. I will always have an immense respect for this guy.

Here are some photos from our first meeting, Ricky bought us all breakfast. I don’t remember the context of the 2nd picture, but it makes me laugh, haha. And then some art I did for him including my guest strip for his comic 1930 Nightmare Theater.







Ricky, I hope you finally found something better, man. Cheers. I miss you.
