haps halloween contest: garry spoor's "horror in the pumpkin patch"


i only first saw garry's great work about a month ago when his sister handed me his portfolio and told me to take a look. i was blown away and told him that, at some point in the future, craig and i would love to have him do a cover for our little perhapanauts book. who knew that just weeks later, garry would rise to the occasion--that occasion being the perhapanauts scary halloween contest and send in this chilling piece below...

Gary, great job on creating the pumpkin monster. If Linus ever saw that, he'd stay clear of pumpkin patches for the rest of his life.

Todd, have fun at the show. Looks like a great line up. I just wish it were a little closer.

Happy Halloween everyone.
