A Classical Halloween

I mentioned in a previous blog post that I intended to create a Halloween set of classical shapes. A few people asked me how on earth this would work, so I thought I'd post a little preview, just for the sake of explaining my overall design goal. In short, I want to make "classical shapes gone mad" - a definitive version of each of the main classical shapes (the straight billiard, bulldog, Dublin, etc) but twisted into extreme versions of themselves. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here's an initial design sketch for the first pipe - Everyone's favorite classic, the straight billiard.


  1. Very cool Trever! I really love these iconoclastic shapes.

  2. Looks like a billiard Dali would paint. Keep those creative juices flowing!
