In continuation of building a Halloween Jack Oโ€™ Lantern art doll, Iโ€™ll be making Jackโ€™s body and clothes (because itโ€™s simply indecent to have a nude Jack Oโ€™ Lantern running around!). I wanted this character have something of a folk-art look to him, so I chose to give him twigs for hands which have the added effect of looking rather creepy- and thatโ€™s a good thing.

This characterโ€™s body, like many of my art dolls, is built from aluminum armature wire with a chest and pelvic block made of plumberโ€™s epoxy and that is covered with upholstery foam. Once the characterโ€™s built, I move on to hand-sewing clothes on to the art doll. I take measurements from the character and simply draw this on to my fabric, cut it out, and sew it on to the figure, making adjustments as I go.


This Halloween character was built to create this illustration, which was photographed in a hand-made set and is available as a print:

 Jack and his fellow pumpkin-sprite friends are looking forward to that time of year when they can roam the mortal world once again! You can purchase a print from Etsy  here  as well as the original sculpture  here .
