HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON!!!
Yes it is that time of year again. Summer is fading out. The heat is dying down. The days are shortening. There is a crisp coolness creeping in. Yes folks, our favorite holiday is just around the corner. What better way to head into the holiday season than with this SpookyCreepyCool interview with everybody's favorite Halloween mad man Unkle Eric Pigors.
I came across Eric Pigors' art years ago in a publication called 1313 magazine, I was instantly drawn into his wild and crazy world of art. Eric is the creator of ToxicToons. His artwork brings to mind vintage Halloween decor, Classic Universal Monsters, Mad magazine, EC Comics, and the artwork of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth to name a few things.
I was most fortunate to have the opportunity to ask Pigors a few questions to share with all of you beasties. If this doesn't get you in the Halloween spirit I don't know what will. So with no further delay, please enjoy this SpookyCreepyCool interview with...

nd that then starts giving me even more ideas. I do like the Holiday themed shirts I did in 2013 a lot, and the summer FIEND INJECTED Shirts too! But the Halloween stuff is when I really get my creepy art out of me! I actually produced a lot of my 2013 Halloween merch ideas a year ago. I already had an idea I wanted a lot of witch themed art. Then last month I just started doodling on scrap paper one night, and I have been turning those doodles into stuff I am now selling! When ever I draw something I am always thinking what purpose it can be used for, a shirt? a print? a sticker? Ouija board? or just the fun of creating something new is a kick!
do buy cds like a mad man, and I have been buying a lot of old 70s cds. Like I bought all the cds of Nazareth and Blue Oyster Cult lately. I am sick of the hits, and want to hear the whole albums these days. Nazareth's “HAIR OF THE DOG” album cover was one I stared at a lot back when I got it on the 70s. Great cover painting! It’s my favorite era of music, all the old classic rock bands, Queen, Cheap Trick, Deep Purple, UFO, RAINBOW, RUSH AEROSMITH, KISS, ZEPPELIN....ETC But I also love 80s stuff like Hanoi Rocks, Lords of the New Church, The Damned, Zodiac Mindwarp. But old Halloween stuff is my fave!
