Creatures from El by Ellen Jewett
Ellen’s fantastical creatures reside in the outer realms of imagination, given wings of metal, clay, and acrylic paint though their gorgeous if slightly grotesque forms look just as real as the animals they were conjured from. All her sculptures are available at her etsy, though you can commission your own mythical or real beast.

Show Me Your Pumpkin Face by Ray Villafane
Carving the Death Star out of a pumpkin is for younglings, Ray makes real-life animated faces out of his pumpkins. Either that, or he actually grows human-pumpkin hybrids and then beats the crap out of them. Either way, sounds like a good time.
