With Halloween quickly approaching,
Carnival Cartoons has decided to celebrate the season
of ghosts, goblins, and all things geeky and freaky, by
commissioning a handful of uber talented tattoo
artists to take a stab at giving "Buzz Carney - The
Tattooed strongman" (Carnival's first independently
produced vinyl collector toy) some "Fresh Ink" .
These hand picked artists will have a chance to
customize blank buzz toys with their own take on his
tats, and their work will be displayed at Carnival
Cartoons' table at this february's New York Comic con.

Now... here's where you get involved... Carnival
Cartoons announces it's "Buzz Carney Custom Tattoo

One of a shiteload of fake movie posters I made for a show pitch my carnival cartoons partner jared and I were shopping around last year. 26 shorts that pay tribute to the quirkiness of low-budget B movies from the 50s and 60s. It was a ton of fun making the posters!
