Here's a grim compilation of Halloween artwork by illustrator Rhode Montijo. I love Rhode's style and have proudly displayed one of his prints in my home for the better part of 8 years now. He has a classic illustrators hand and his fantastical themes live around this time of year quite nicely. Many of his sculptures and paintings invoke a sense of child-like innocense when witches and monsters seemed more possible. I think a nostalgic feeling washes over many of us around this time of year, being a kid and dressing up, gorging ourselves with candy, staring our fears in the face. As adults we lose the magic of it, but i think Rhode has kept it inside and it comes forward in his work.
