Strange things can happen when an underpaid commercial artist needs to fill 100 pages with
family-friendly monsters for children to scribble all over. Take for instance the seasonal "BIG FUN" books
by generic publisher "Better-than-Broccoli Books". Within its cryptic pages, sandwiched between totally
ordinary drawings of pumpkins and bats, there dwell scattered images of pure, primal, nightmareish horror
like none the mortal world has ever been prepared for.
I am referring, of course, to a vampire eating corn:
We will never know what devastating psychological repercussions this seemingly harmless image may
have already burned into the fragile imaginations of countless American children, but we can know this:
Vampires eating corn are Halloween in its Purest, most Powerful form.
And that, readers, is a message only YOU can bring to life! Send in your own artwork of a vampire
eating corn on the cob to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the name you prefer to go by and any
personal link you would like to accompany your submission.
As a hopelessly optimistic pleaser, judging a "contest" turned out to be the hardest thing I've
ever had to do for the site. I sincerely love every last entry I received for a wide variety of
reasons, and had I the resources, every one of them would earn some sort of prize...but then
I guess I'd look even fruitier than I do now-diddly-ow.
Thus, it is both for effort and for number of votes by strangers on message boards that
Brokk and his epic hypothetical film-poster walk away (from their mailbox) with a box of
weird, random stuff I didn't need anymore. For everyone else, drop me another line via
e-mail if you own your own website or deviantart gallery, so that I may link it from your
|...And for your minor amusement, here are more choice pages of "BIG FUN!"
