Gothtober is an annual Halloween "advent calendar" with a different participant providing media or digital art for each day. My contribution dropped today, Gothtober 24 (there's no way for me to link directly to my piece, you have to scroll down and tap /click "24"). It's a silly animation of classic monsters performing at a comedy open mic night. Totally SFW. [more inside]

Around Halloween 2010 I saw Cyril Takayama's head drop illusion and made a bold promise to myself that I'd figure it out and wear it for our 2011 company Halloween costume contest. Throughout 2011 I pondered on it and eventually came up with a design. I implemented the design and various tweaks in the month leading up to Halloween. [more inside]
This short horror-comedy film, Goodbye Kitty, which I helped produce, was originally created for a weekend shorts contest that involved writing, shooting, and editing the entire film in 51 hours.
