'Til We Bring You Nature Trail To Hell Part II

Greetings Internet Latecomers! Welcome to my October 2012 project in which I did conceptual design for a theoretical Spookhouse Haunt Attraction based upon "Weird Al" Yankovic's song "Nature Trail to Hell." The intent is to demonstrate how I would approach the development of a professional production for a client, and the level of thought put into making a themed environment plausible.

If you need a recap, click here to go back to the initial introduction for this feature, click here to get the premise, and click here to start back at the Entry Façade to begin the walkthrough via each consecutive "Newer Post" link.

You can find my @N8ureTrail2Hell Twitter account here for any updates or scatterbrained musings.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the content!

Know You'll Never See Hideous Effects Like These Again

'Tis October no longer. The alluring spell of the Jack-o-Lantern flickers and fades, and the November business of preparing for winter shifts one's mindset toward the practical and sensible.

It's beginning to have its effect on me as well. I am now more reminded of the non-creepy mass of my body of design work. Elements such as murals for nurseries...

...writing and illustrations for children's books...

...designing contest-winning architectural concepts for Amarr® Garage Doors...

...drawing cartoony promotional art for John Scalzi's book "Redshirts"...

...Actually, that last one's beginning to skew Dark again. I should best go put the kettle on and make some tea. Perhaps think of adorable scampering kittens, the ones that aren't actually fluffy secret murder demons who whisper into my ear orders from the netherworld—

...Okay, wait! Everybody just wait. That's just the October Residue talking. I'll be fine after a bit of a nap.
