Dieselpunk Halloween Art

“We belong dead.” - The Monster in Bride of Frankenstein

The Diesel Era of the 1920s - 40s saw the production of several fantastic Halloween themed cartoons. For example, there was Max Fleischer’s Snow White that had Cab Calloway singing St. James Infirmary in the guise of Koko the Clown. Not to forget Disney’s classic Silly Symphony performing The Skeleton Dance.

With Halloween being right around the corner, I wanted to showcase some cool dieselpunk art by Shawn Dickinson that's made in the same spirit (pun intended) as those great cartoons.
