OCTOBER IS UPON US! (October Art Shows)

Friends and Fiends of the Autumn Society,

The Autumn Society proudly presents two amazing art shows for this upcoming first Friday of October.

HALLOWED HALLOWEEN
Our main event will be Hallowed Halloween in collaboration with the Philadelphia Cartoonist Society. Sam Heimer, co-founder of the Autumn Society, has personally curated this show, and you DO NOT want to miss it! If you love the true spirit of Halloween and you're in Philly this one is for you! Only at PROXIMITY gallery! Some words from Sam & Info / Flyer Below...

SOME WORDS FROM SAM

"If you haven't heard already; this Friday, October 1st, is the opening reception of Hallowed Halloween. This show is the first official joint venture between The Autumn Society and The Philadelphia Cartoonist Society. The aforementioned groups have cohabited since AS's beginning, and since then the groups have shared members on and off, but never really worked together. Again, this is the first time both groups have collaborated and brought equal greatness to the table. It will be a coalition of awesomeness so lets pack the house & spread the word!"

VIDEO GAME GORE
And if that's not enough for you, how about some pop-culture / blood drenched illustrations of your favorite video game characters? The Autumn Society & Brave New Worlds Comics are teaming up for their last show of the year to bring the Video Game Gore Show. Only at Brave New Worlds Comics!!!


"Pixelated carnage has come a long way since Donkey Kong hurled his first barrel and that intrepid Jump Man, and the Autumn Society’s latest gallery showing chronicles that bloody, button-mashed history with Video Game Gore. Local artists re-imagine the grisliest, spine-busting finishers of their latch-key youths in a showcase celebrating first person shooters, arcade fighters and sidescrolling slobberknockers.  Whether you like your interactive atrocity rendered in 8, 16, 32, 64-bit or beyond, you’ll likely find a snapshot of virtual brutality vivid enough to transport you to those halcyon days of callused, Cheetos-powdered fingers, scrounging down to depths of your pockets for one more quarter.  Stock up on health packs, save your progress, and get ready to feel anemic."

That poster for Hallowed Halloween by Sam is EPIC! Definitely a great depiction for the Saint of All Hallow's Eve if I've ever seen one!

i loved seeing all the pieces in person, great work everyone. I'm a big fan of of art deco and to see a halloween piece in this style stopped me in my tracks: Timothy Smith's "Madame de la Mort". Tim, where are you? who are you? and did you make extra prints?

timmy smith is a dear friend and a pcs member who moved out to CA to further his education... again. He has a blog... but I can't find the link... Him and his girlfriend also make plush toys, we did a collaborative piece that to this day is in my portfolio.
