The Art of Allison Sommers

Juxtapoz // Sunday, September 23, 2012

Halloween Tip #3: Keep Your Skeletons in the Closet

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 31, 2011
This is a clever idea, and one that is perfect for Halloween; Greek design studio Dede created the "Skitch," a hangar in the shape of a skeleton that literally lets you keep your skeletons in the closet. Do the Greeks have Halloween? It doesn't ring a bell, but they have the mood down perfectly.

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 31, 2011
When we were thinking of some classic Halloween art today, we thought first of the fantastic subscriber cover of the 2009 Pushead Halloween Issue done by painter John Cebollero.
