Art Journal for Halloween 2010

It’s so funny to me that I have to annotate the title with “2010”!  This week marks the one year anniversary of the You Tube videos.  Since I already have an Art Journal for Halloween entry, well… you get the picture.

This week’s page took a cue from Paul Overton of  He posted a tutorial many moons ago on how to paint bricks.  If you’re not familiar with, Paul reviews web pages and videos every day to bring us some of the neatest art from simple architecture using a freight car to kinetic sculpture, to 1000 foot tall murals.  OK, I’m not so sure about the 1000 feet, but if there were something like that, you can bet you’d find out about it on

Paul’s site is also the inspiration for the moving parts of this week’s journal entry.  If you pull on Jack’s shoulder, he will lift off his head.  And what spooky chamber would be complete without a secret passage?  Move the torch and the spooky door opens!  So, Happy Halloween and enjoy the carb crash for the next week or so.

You can watch the video at the You Tube, or just watch it in the embedded player below:

It has been a looooong time since I have released a podcast.  I intend to start publishing one a day until I am caught up with all the ones in reserve.  Then you’ll get them weekly on Sunday mornings.  They will be 20-30 in length so you can relax with a pot of coffee and catch up with some of your favorite artists from around the web.
