Halloween is an interesting tradition. Fun and morbidity all rolled into one celebration!

I recently painted some quick decorations for a birthday party, consisting of imaginative vegetable and fruit characters and vibrant fish. They were received very well for their loose, cartoonish and stylized nature. So when some close friends said they would be throwing a Halloween costume party and needed some decorations, I knew I could help.

I decided to pick up some cheap paints, a butcher block of paper, and spent an hour painting some fun and scary Halloween decorations. The guidelines for the Halloween party decorations were to stick with a blue and green theme with spatters of red. I was also given permission to push the paintings a little further into the horrific realm.

Presented below are the scary Halloween paintings and decorations. Each is roughly 18″x24″, and can be easily taped to a wall or ceiling, or wherever you want to decorate for a party. They consist of, in order, a Pumpkin, Severed Head, Demon Dog, Demon Skull, Spider, Demon Bat, Severed Hand, and Snake.

    Really Scary Creepy Michael!!!!!!!!! I bet you had fun doing this little project. You just went wild huh?

    Isn’t the butcher block roll great? I looked at it in the store for the longest, thinking ‘That would be perfect- BUT NO! It’s butcher block paper.’ Finally I had to the courage to just buy it! It was like my find of the year! At long last, I have enough white s paper for anything I need.

    Hi Vikki,
    Yea, these types of drawings had been building up in my head for a while. I am intrigued by the depth of grotesque that some artists achieve. Especially surrealists. They scare me a little, but I take that as a sign I’ve got something more to learn about.

    On the style side, it’s fun not to feel so apprehensive about throwing paint around. Sometimes not wanting to waste resources cramps my style! The paper and cheap paint helps me practice, so thank you for that! 😉
