Here’s an original poem written by me, in celebration of Random Acts of Poetry Day.
Do pumpkins dream? Do they dream of going home with someone nice? Do they dream of smelling like pumpkin spice? Do they dream of haunted houses and familiar black cats? Do they dream of witches or zombies or vampire bats? Do they dream of sitting on a porch, all lit up for Halloween night? Do they dream of scaring children who walk up the path for a fright? Do they dream of being eaten by chickens who flew the coop? Do they dream of being chopped up and made into pumpkin soup? Do they dream that treat-or-treaters will poke them in the eye? Do they dream of sitting on the Thanksgiving table as someone else’s pie? Do they dream of stealing a magical flying broom and taking it for a spin? Do they dream of having the world’s biggest jack-o’-lantern grin? What do pumpkins dream?
We’re kicking off Wicked Art Wednesdays this Halloween 2020 season with one of my favorites, Artist and Designer, Jeff Granito!
After graduating with a BFA in Graphic Design from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Jeff Granito was tapped by Disney to work on new art and merchandising, which you may have seen adorn the shelves of Disneyland’s Main Street shops if you’ve visited the park sometime in the past 20 years.
Now working as a freelance artist, this uber talented Tiki enthusiast has had the opportunity to produce amazing works of art and graphics for big time movie studios, including Walt Disney, Warner Bros., Fox, Nickelodeon, and dozens of other name brand companies. There’s so much more to say but I’m just gonna let his magnificent art doing the talking.
