The Cult of the Great Pumpkin loves the art of Sam Heimer (if you’re not familiar, click his name. You’re welcome). Sam’s been hinting at some big things on the horizon lately (if you don’t follow his Instagram account, you should!) and it looks like one of those things is upon us:
The Patron Saint of Halloween figure, based on one of Sam’s drawings and carved by Igor Didenko (with help by the Cryptocurium) will be available in Sam’s Etsy store at 8:00 pm EST. I know what I’ll be doing at 8:01 pm!

Earlier this year HorrorNaments tapped Chad Savage to design an ornament for their second series run of products, so naturally he came up with a “Chad Savage” jack o’ lantern, which you can now get (along with many other very cool designs) to spookify your Christmas tree and celebrate Creepmas!1 Comment Go to Post...
