Haunted Attraction Facade Art

I love the painted facades of the haunted attractions you see at fairs and carnivals. The garish, often airbrushed artwork never fails to catch the eye and promises so much that the stuff inside rarely lives up to your expectations.

Papercraft Jiangshi

As much as I enjoyed last year’s Jiangshi inspired papercraft project, I wanted to focus on something a little more traditional this year.
