Happy Halloween or....

On October 31,1517, Martin Luther posted a proposal on the doors of a church in Wittenberg, Germany to debate the doctrine and practice of indulgences. This act started a great reformation in the church to get back to Biblical doctrines. One of which was the doctrine of justification by faith-the teaching that Christ's own righteousness is imputed to those who believe, and on that ground alone, they are accepted by God.

This is just a fun fact piece I wanted to do with a young Luther. It also gave me a chance to draw Lock, Shock, and Barrel from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Which is one of my favorite movies of all time!

When are we going to see Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Thankgiving?? Nightmare Before Valentine's Day....Nightmare Before Winter Solstice?? Please make another one Mr. Burton!!!

I love how Luther's these are three-hole-punched! Much easier to tack on! :)

Good work again, Heath. Wouldn't have pegged you for a Burton fan, but hey, to each his own.

Only about 9 weeks to Christmas. Wow. I gotta get shopping.

Hey Heath

I think Mr Burton is working on Sweeney Todd movie at the moment, but I know for a fact he hasn't ruled out returning to the land of Jack Skellington (I worked on Mars Attacks plus my friends made all the puppets for Corpse Bride). I can say there is another puppet movie in the pipeline, but can say no more than that... ooooh, the drama.

Lovely site, matey, and great pastiche!

Big man love

I always thought that Jack Skellington should've visited those other holidays myself. I don't have to tell you that Nightmare Before Christmas one of my favs as well!

Keep it up, man. Beautiful work.

This is such a fun idea, you could do a whole book about a kid version of Martin Luther. Of course, this might re-open old wounds, and some Irish people might start bombing each other or something. But I still like the card.

Terrific concept! Lotsa fun.

Oh, and congrats on the recent WalMart gig with FunnyPages Productions.
