Hispanic Hallowe'en

Some of you never had the privilege of getting smacked with a chancla when you disobeyed or didn't keep things clean, and it shows. (To be honest, my mom used everything but the chancla, scarring me for life, but that's beside the point.)

In any case, the threat of the chancla will keep anyone in line. And I mean anyone.

Halloweens Past

I got this playlist of vintage Hallowe'en music together a while back, and I always love to share it. Especially that old Robert Johnson...

Uncanny, Spooky, Creepy Tales...

It's always fascinating to go back to the 1920's and 30's  to discover what the people of that day and age found frightening. It gives you a glimpse into the beliefs and prejudices of the day, as well, so be aware there's some offensive material here...

Behind You!


I've posted work from Brian Coldrick before, but the month of October seems to be a particularly wonderful time to re-share it!

If you can, become a Patron to help encourage him to make more of these delightfully creepy, one-panel animations!

Speaking of Music

Speaking of music, I'm alway amazed at how much Hallowe'en content there is out there from the sixties and seventies. I mean, yes, there's been a constant flow of music, ghost stories and horror stories since the Victrola was invented, but the sixties and seventies seem to be the sweet spot for horror and monster recordings!

For a pretty good catalog of vinyl and vinyl transferred to digital, click the monster go-go dancer above!

New Needful Things!


At last! The ShellHawk's Creations Etsy shop is getting updated! Some jack-o'-lanterns, some other cups, and finally, the Supernatural cups!

The last firing got more good results and only a few imperfect ones, which are in the shop at a discount. They're not all in, yet, so keep an eye out in the next week or so.

The shoulder injury I suffered earlier this year really set my schedule back, but I still managed to get a few things (over a hundred, I think) done. I really had a thing for cups, mugs and tankards this summer. Don't ask why, because I have no idea!

In other news, the Open House went really well! Totally worth the time, effort, and lost sleep!

Everything skeleton was gone! Bowl and mugs! And it really made me so happy that the kind woman from the ceramics studio bought four of my jack-o'-lanterns to take to Canada as gifts for her friends. It's incredibly satisfying, knowing my creations are going to loved ones!

I'm resting my shoulder for now, but soon, I'll be back at it. I'll be pushing through the holidays, stocking up on my Halloween things to apply for shows happening next years. It feels like a triumph to be doing what I do best and making my fans happy!
