Saturday we had a few people over for our annual pumpkin carving tradition. Thanks to Zombie Pumpkins for always making each year a success and giving us and our guests so many awesome stencils to choose from.
If you have followed my blog for many years or have checked out the Remains page of my site, you know that from time to time if a stencil I want to do is not available then I create my own. I have done Baby Firefly from House of 1000 Corpses, Lily Munster (before there was one) and even Pee Wee Herman. However, this year as soon as I saw the Christina Ricci/Wednesday Addams stencil (on the Zombie Pumpkins site) I instantly wanted to do it. Frank felt the exact same way when he saw “The Bow” (as Henry Rollins calls him) as Ziggy Stardust.
The entire time as I was carving I kept saying quotes from the movie. Such as “I’m a homicidal maniac. They look just like everyone else” ha ha.
Here was the end results of how our pumpkins turned out…
And here is a shot of the whole group’s pumpkins together….
Did you carve pumpkins this year? What did you carve?
In preparation for an upcoming Hardcore Hearse Club Show where we will be showing Frankenhearse and also be in the presence of Butch Patrick, I decided to bust out my pencils and draw another one of my favorite sitcom family members..Eddie Munster.
I call this one “Vroom! Vroom!” because it is inspired by the Hot Rod Herman episode and the fact that the hearse show will also include replicas of the Munsters cars at the event. I didn’t want to draw the photos I saw online so I literally froze the screen to get the shot when Eddie is explaining to Herman all about drag racing and how he should go to the track and race his friend’s Dad. He tells Herman and Lily he is a sure win because Herman “is the best driver in the whole world!” Lily gets a good laugh until Herman agrees and loses the family car. That is until Grandpa builds Dragula and wins it back!
I am looking forward to meeting and giving it to Butch in a few weeks! I have met Lisa Loring who played Wednesday Addams a few years ago. I kick myself every time I think I missed the opportunity to draw and give her a piece of my work. It was still Epic to meet her though and I am really looking forward to meeting grown up Eddie as well.

Are you a spooky sitcom fanatic as well? Prints of both Eddie and Lily are available in my Etsy Shop! See more of my portrait work on the Spitting Image page of my website!
