Halloween Tradition.

Halloween is a big deal in the Lomax/Patch abode. All things spooky and hallowed have a special place in our hearts. One of our favorite traditions, right up there with the carving of the pumpkin and the donning of the costumes, is making Trick or Treat bags for the Children’s Crisis Treatment Center (CcTC). With our allegiance to the Philadelphia Cartoonist Society we have participated in creating bags for five years of this decade long tradition. We both got involved through the good graces (and mileage on his car) of one Jeffro Kilpatrick who has lent both his pencil and heart to the Crisis Center for the better part of 12 years.

This year, with the PCS being busier than ever, we were unable to get together for the customary pizza and beer to crank out our annual 100 Halloween Bags. But traditions must be maintained even in the eye of a deadline so Melissa and I set up shop in our studio to create our contribution, all the while listening to some Johnny Cash and Tom Waits.
This year we collaborated on bags. Yours truly had the task of making some spooky potato stamps and Lomax had type duty. Her elegant script has marked many a greeting card and is way nicer than my own. And what goody bag would be complete without some GLITTER?!?
These bags will be part of the 2010 Spooktacular, sponsored by Charette, the AIA Philadelphia and students of CHAD (Charter High School for Architecture & Design). The Spooktacular event provides kids at the CcTC (The Children s Crisis Treatment Center) a safe place to trick or treat and enjoy the happiest of Halloweens.
You can see some more of the bags Melissa and I created on my blog.

Thank yous and Apologies


First and foremost, THANK YOU all so very much for Friday night. The turnout was great, all the art was fantastic, and the treat-table was scrumptious. I think the greatest thing about 'Hallowed Halloween' was the variety. Everybody's work was very different form the next, which is very refreshing and made for an amazingly diverse show. The fantastic pedigree of art between the PCS and ASOP folk was indistinguishable; our two groups hanging together was truly a match made in...uh...Hell. We managed to cover a lot of ground, from the cultural aspects, to the trademark ephemera, to the occult, to urban legend; all the nasty bits that make Halloween a great institution were present.
I'm sure in the near future I'll have the chance to set up another group show, and when that happens I'll be sure to invite all of you. Thank you once more for making this a great show.

Sorry I didn't get to speak to everybody, and sorry I didn't make much sense to those I did speak to; I'm fighting off a massive chest cold and had a head full of pills.

SEE SOME PHOTOS FROM THE OPENING HERE, taken by Ryan Studley. More photos as I get them, and a video soon to follow.

Also, because of the beer snafu, we might have a closing reception...with beer.
