#1 Pump-Ken

| November 2, 2011 | 6 Comments

Ken Holsworth was the foremost expert on growing gigantic record-smashing pumpkins. One night in October his competitors had enough, if he wasn’t going to share his secret, he wasn’t going to win the 2011 harvest-festival blue ribbon.  Late at night while Ken was tending to his precious  pumpkins he was ambushed from behind,  killed in cold blood and left in the patch.  Over time as his body deteriorated and fed the pumpkins, his spirit crept into their root system as well, which soon overtook his long withered corpse.  Now renewed with otherworldly botanical strength, Pump-Ken is on the prowl to exact revenge on those who did him wrong.

    That sounds like my new favorite Tales from the Crypt story. Badass!

    I saw this pic last night right before I nodded off, and thought, “hey, this is a great concept and totally well drawn”, then, I kid you not, I had an unsettling dream featuring a pumpkin headed scarecrow zombie stalking me through an industrial park at night time. I’m not going to qualify it as a nightmare, but something about this pic really torqued me in some subconcious realm; that is the true telling of a stellar work of art. Keep up the good work man!

  5. @KingAdBeck – Thanks amigo!

    @Jared – Right on, that’s exactly what I was going for. I’m heavy into the pre-code EC genre, so can expect more in the same vein. Thanks man!

    @Michael – Thanks yo, i appreciate it!

    @jononatopoeia – Now thats the best comment i’ve received on a drawing in a long time! hopefully he wont haunt your dreams for too long o: thanks a billion, i hope to keep the ball rolling throughout the challenge.
