Tomorrow will be Halloween, but the only thing we’ll be celebrating is my son Jack’s 14th birthday. When he was younger, Jack would have the occasional birthday party with a few friends from school, but it soon became tedious when I realised that his little friends always expected his party to be Halloween-themed. Also, there was the tendency for the kids to expect presents, rather than give Jack presents.
So I stopped hosting Birthday + Halloween parties. I guess when Jack has his 18th birthday he can host a big Birthday + Halloween party himself, if he wants to. At least it won’t be as bad as being born on Christmas Day, where you get only 1 Birthday + Christmas present when you’re a kid, and then when you’re an adult you find yourself GIVING presents to other people on YOUR OWN Birthday.
Anyway, here are the final 2 Halloweeny digital art images I created for the season, for your enjoyment.
