This is Chompy. He haunts me. He's an evil Jack O'Lantern who eats people.
He is made of fiberglass. Then the Jack O'Lantern face was added later, and made into a lamp. I made a kind of Tim Burtonish base for it (hard to see in this pic, but a nod to The Nightmare Before Christmas), and it has a flicker-flame lightbulb installed in it. That said, it's impossible to photograph, and you can't see the bulb unless there is no other light in the room. I think I'm going to raid the lighting department at school next week and steal some lighting gels to put in the lamp and just use a normal bulb.
I like to make things that freak me out, and this is a nightmare from when I was a kid.
He's my entry into the
Nightmares contest! They are a fantastic group and all dark artists should join <3
