I think this one is my favorite.
Love the vacant eyes...
How freaky is this peeling paint?
This one is nightmare-worthy.
Technically, I don't know if ALL of these are the work of Ralph Eugene Meatyard. Some I know are definitely, but others I can't guarantee, so if anyone knows that they are the work of someone else, please let me know. Basically, I was Googling him for weird images to print for last year's Halloween party and these are some that I downloaded.
Anyway, I absolutely love this man's work. I just find his images to be captivating. I plan on doing an homage to him this fall. He's so inspirational to me!
You can look into him further here.
Oh, and I'd like to point out that he was from Normal, Illinois. How fabulous is it that his work is so non-normal? And "Meatyard"? That name rocks.
Many other people have been inspired by his work as well. Here's one I also love:

After last Halloween's party, for SO many reasons, I just didn't get around to posting any photos or blogging about the party. However, I'm in revved-up Halloween mode so I'm going to try to play a little catch-up now. These photos are of the cake I had a friend make. Isn't it cool? I also had two dozen cupcakes, and then a guest brought a Cold Stone Creamery cake, so this one didn't even get cut two days later. Not that I'm complaining; I LIVE for cake with buttercream icing!
