Halloween Art / The Official website of The Annual Halloween Art Exhibit

The Annual Halloween Art Exhibit had it's humble beginnings in Chicago's Flat Iron Arts building, with nothing more than a few small paintings, a bowl of candy, and a spooky record on the phonograph. As more and more Halloween fans visited the show, we realized that our dream of a full scale gallery style exhibit could be accomplished with dedication to quality and creativity.. Many of you have asked, "Why does someone present a Halloween Art Exhibit?" Does it take a desire to express fondness for all things ghoulish and spooky? Or perhaps some repressed fantasy about reclaiming those early childhood years? The answer would be "Yes", but not that simply. To elaborate, we must first understand its creator's background...

Scott Lowell Jackson (Producer/ Publisher/ Graphic Designer/ Illustrator) Started out creating logos and t-shirt designs for local print shops with a flair for the grim and ghastly. As early as 9 years old Mr. Jackson could be found in his neighborhood sporting the Dracula cape his mother made for him long after Halloween was over. Besides art & music, Creature Features, Famous Monsters magazines were major influences. Twenty plus years later, Mr. Jackson has created a multitude of covers & artwork for magazines, comics, books, games, CD's and posters. His artwork has been featured by Kiss, Pink Floyd, Megadeth, The Electric Hellfire Club and many others. Not just the club president, he's also an artist.
