Happy Halloween

Post by Luke » Wed Oct 31, 2012 10:58 am

Halloween is here, and it looks like the bloody butcher struck again. I found this poor deer missing it's hindquarter. Coincidentally, it's the shape of the meat on the butcher's table.

These boxers didn't stand a chance against the butcher. Oh what a bloody Halloween this is turning out to be.

The butcher's bloody axe has struck again. To keep his victims from fleeing, he first lops their feet off before going in for the kill.

Who could forget the Halloween Massacre of 2009 when the butcher made his first appearance?

Arms and heads were lopped off.

Just 3 short years ago, this poor bunny life was cut short.

Even Diane's kangaroo was assaulted in 2009 by the butcher.

Wow, where did you come up with all those incomplete woodcut figures? Also, solid color figures seem to be rare compared to marbleized ones. I've never seen a solid green, red, or yellow figure before.

Don, Most of the woodcut series were made of a hard plastic, and are often marbled. The ones above are made from a softer plastic, are almost never marbled, and are very hard to find. I'm fortunate to have a complete set of the soft plastic woodcuts, but only because of a wonderful CJCA collector, and dear friend. I believe the deformed pieces are mistakes made during manufacture, and they are priceless to me. I have them in a special box.
