I find Dave Lowe is creeping into my soul. I love everything about his work. The whimsy. The humor.
This past year, I have started creating some props inspired by his work. I was thinking that there may be others here that too share my admiration for Mr. Lowe. (I won't call him Dave. I don't wanna be all creepy stalker chick you know. hahaha) So c'mon and share your projects with us!

Here's a few items we recently created inspired by (copied from) Mr. Lowe. :D

Oh, you went there! ;)

Those are awesome, Hilda! I'm sure he'd be jealous of the execution.

Mr. Lowe is definitely inspiring. I haven't replicated any of his work yet (the big monster eye is on my list and I love the giant guillotine the kids have to walk under) but I'm inspired by the tone, and by how much his sketches guide his prop designs.

For anyone not "in-the-know," Mr. Lowe's blog

Go there, enjoy, make something, post it here! ;)

It may be a small thing, and not seem intuitively obvious, but the 'busted-wall-cannonball' for our last pirate theme was as a direct result of his witch crash.

Obviously, the witch crash concept has been around, but his was so dimensional that it got my wheels turning. His concepts are always fun. :)

He made a label for his niece Devin, and I made this.

Hilda, I love the jar you have the vampire ashes label on. I have used that label too. The Witch Crash is excellent

The Cannon Ball Damage is really creative too.

This peeper was loosely inspired by Mr. Lowe.

The look of his skeletons, the humour of his props, and having a little bit of a back story.

(I don't know if it comes across, but it's intended to read as the same skull on either side, with different expressions - I think I need to add some detail to the skulls to sell it a bit better. Also wanted to have a "tremble" in the scared skull on the right, but I gotta work on that too.)

OK, I tried my hand at the bat in the cage project. My grandson (age 3) and I sat down and made the bones out of clay last weekend. I told him I would use them in a Halloween project, and am excited to show him next time he is over how they are being used. Even used one of the bones as the perch for the bat. I found the unusual cage sometime back in a thrift store, the bat is from Dollar Tree, and the moss is left over from another project.

PIB - you and your grandson did a wonderful job on the caged bat and that cage is a very cool find. I bet your grandson had a blast helping with it :)
