Finally!...now if we could only get some good weather...

Jacob, my assistant manager, did all the "hard" stuff. The painting and such. Me? I just wanted the Airbrush shop to look drop-dead awesome. And I have some other plans for the other operations in my charge, too. They just aren't, necessarily, art/visually related. BID.

While monsters have been the theme, I remember as a kid, that "Captain Company" used to run superhero stuff right along side the monster merchandise in Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine. And superhero merchandise is very much a part of the Halloween scene, including all the Halloween costumes. We get requests for some "superhero" type stuff to paint on shirts, so it seems fitting to include them on the "Halloween" displays...





Here are some examples of some Halloween specific designs. Maybe they'll work. Maybe not. The "skull/bleeding black heart" is our own spin on a design used at another park...

I wanted something with a bit of a glamour spin, yet with some unsettling overtones...

I introduced Jacob to the wacky world of Basil Wolverton. At least it looks different...


Worlds of Fun is running the slogan, "All You Fear Is Here," as part of this year's campaign. So we incorporated our own version...

...and here's how this looks over our first monster wall...


With the remaining "monster" portraits Jacob painted, plus the Twilight stuff and other designs, here's how the east wall of the Airbrush shop looks...




And finally, what that certain corner of our universe looks like...


If you're in the area, you ought to come out to Worlds of Fun for the Halloween Haunts. You could see our stuff for real.
