Hallowe’en – 18

NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART: This post is filled with ghouls, gators, gorillas, giant insects & garbage.

Yes, yum, devour humans!

You guys are lightweights! I eat garbage.

Not as much as we do!

Allow me to chop all that garbage up for you!

Did someone mention garbage?

Don’t look at me! I’m full. I just finished mating, and well, he was a tasty fellow!

I’ll burn your garbage, you stupid alley dregs.

I vote we kick Flame Head out of the alley! He burnt my eye last year, and now I have to wear an air conditioner for an eye patch.

What a bunch of idiots. I need to find a new alley!

Dedicated to my dear niece Sherrie. As before and always, she’s the Hallowe’en Queen.

Artists include: Bruno Smoky, Nick Sweetman, Wales, Birdo and 2 unknown

That was horrific. I need a smoke!

Hallowe’en, phooey! I will take you all on! This alley needs straightening out!

    1. The crock is a hoot! Bruno Smoky, the artist, does a lot of street art fairy tale characters. I hoarded that crock for a couple of years, waiting for the right moment to use it! Happy Hallowe’en!

  2. Greetings Resa, I just love this art. The amount of detail, use of colour and shape ect, they really are works of genius. Sadly in the Outer Rim of the UK where I live there was a big clampdown on street/alley art and most got scrubbed or whitewashed. It is just beginning to have a revival thanks to the likes of Banksy et all. Thanks for checking out my site and I’ll be sure to come back and check out more of your posts.

    1. Hard to believe there’s a clamp down on street art. Perhaps, now that all is white washed, better art will appear. Here in Toronto, we have various programs to promote street art and murals. It really enhances the urban experience.

      1. Hello Resa, the clampdown was during the last twenty years but now cities are pushing for more “Culture Quarters” and “Arts Districts” so more of this type of art is reappearing. It is just a shame some of the early stuff was wiped out just because it was either in the wrong place or done without permission. Thanks for the recents views and follow of my site, it’s much appreciated.

          1. Hi there, no worries. I try to respond within 24hrs but I have the advantage of a lot of spare time due to my health preventing me from work. It is a pleasure to chat with people whenever (and I check my inboxes etc daily)

    1. These insects are very large in the alley, Cindy! The Praying Mantis is bigger than me. That fly is the size of a dog. It’s just terrifying! Love to you, Cindy!

  3. Hahaaa… Too funny, Resa – or should I say – too scary! 👀
    And what a great narrative to boot.. 👢
    I’m outta here. The kids will be knocking at the door real soon! 👦 👧 👧 👦
    Hoping they aren’t as scary as your murals…. In some ways they ARE! 💀💀💀

    1. Yes, it’s very scary when they come knocking at your door. It could be a kid in a costume…. but then again, it could be the real deal! 👹👻☠️👺
      Beware!!!!! xoxoxo

  4. Fantastic, creepy, spooky and unhinged – the commentary too 🙂 Love it. The gorilla and fly is xtra interesting because the way the metal gate is open looks like the gorilla is caged. Incredible detail in the gator! Love eye patch dude – he could be a character straight out of 2000 AD comics, and he’s totally adapted to his environment with the air conditioner, wires and pipes (or the environment has adapted to him??). Love the colours in the mantis art. Thanks, Resa, for taking us on this Halloween journey to a world of strange and gorgeous art!

    1. This post was a lot if fun to make. I’m very happy that you enjoyed it. IKR, the air conditioner eyepatch guy is a hoot, and I thought the same thing that you did about the gorilla. Hallowe’en is a scream! 😀 ☠️☠️👹

    1. Thank you, dear Carolee! I’m shivering and laughing in fear all at the same time. I’ve got chains on the door, and the windows are all locked and shaded.
      Hopefully I will make it through the night! xoxo

        1. Yes, I got your comment. I answered it. There is nothing in my SPAM.
          Perhaps my response is in your SPAM?
          Thank you for the reminder to always check SPAM. It’s crazy who ends up in there sometimes.

  5. Ohhhhhh. So Scary. I’m waiting up with Linus tonight waiting for the Great Pumpkin. I know that I have the most sincerest pumpkin patch. No sign of hypocrisy!!! Happy Halloween.

    1. Sorry to terrify you, but this is my once a year opportunity to do so.
      Ah, give my regards to Linus. Is he coming over to your patch, or are you cyber communication?
      I’m not 100% sure, but I may have met an insincere pumpkin, once. He had 2 faces carved in him.
      Happy Hallowe’en!

    1. I’m not sure what that heck the mackerel is. Birdo just does odd creatures. Love the smokin’ though. Hysterical! Glad you saw this. I’m bringing up Aquileana’s birthday post tonight. It can stay at the top while I work on the Fashion Show report. It’s a gorgeous mural, and is perfect for while I’m away at Art Gowns. ❦❦❦
      Silver Satin…. is that like …… for polishing silverware?

            1. Yeah, let’s roll! Whew! This Art Gowns post, “Art Gowns Dazzle the Runway at the Coop”, is turning out to be simply marvellous.
              SECRET: Your Art Gown – Lady Anne, made it in!
              It’s almost done, but I need to sleep on it. Gi did some really great Art Gowns by the Chicklets. ❦🌹❦

  7. Aiiiii I’m glad this post had a warning at the start of it or I might have felt very scared hehe 😉 Kidding but I DO love it! So many great images that fit with the Halloween theme! I hope you had a wonderfully eerie night xxoo And I mean that in the best way, Resa!

  8. As always, GREAT Hallowe’en post!! Been swamped here and Hallowe’en was mayhem so just got to see it now. Love the eyepatch 😉

    Thank you for the dedication!! xoxoxoxo
