Original digital art by Jason Snyder. This is a nostalgic depiction of spending a pleasant Halloween night in the campground with a Shasta Airflyte camper. This Shasta trailer is one of my favorites, with a wonderful mid-century design. I imagine taking a cross country trip in one of these, perhaps traveling down Route 66. My artwork imagines overnighting in a quiet campground on a lovely All Hallows’ Eve, with a big bowl of candy for Trick-Or-Treaters, an eerie Vincent Price movie on the television, carved jack-o-lanterns and vintage Halloween decorations pinned in the windows. A cool Autumn breeze whistles through the trees while a full moon illuminates a misty night sky. No fear of creatures in the dark, just the pleasure of hearing the other campers kids play in the dark, dressed as ghouls, witches and cowboys and clowns. Maybe a few of the adults gather and share a beer or a cider, formerly strangers, now bound by the festive mood of Halloween in the KOA.
If you like this artwork, let me know in the comments. I’d love to do a series of illustrations of campground trailers. I think a calendar with the same camper depicted in a different location each month would be cool. We would follow the Shasta throughout the year, with different seasonal decor and weather.

Original Artwork by Jason Snyder. “Clean-Up in Produce!” This is a colorful digital pin up design of a dark haired beauty having a bit of an accident in the fruit section of her local grocery store. Featuring the classic styling of 1940s and 1950s pinups combined with a cartoon / comic style, similar to Archie Comics and Betty Boop.
The character style was inspired by a variety of mid-century art styles. Archie Comics artist Dan DeCarlo certainly is a factor here, as he is one of my favorite comic creators. The risque comics of Playboy Magazine and the naughty pin ups of Art Frahm also provided some of my spark. I don’t think I can go quite as risque as Art Frahm though.
This pin up is available as a printable digital download on Etsy.com. If you’re interested in framing it and hanging it on your wall somewhere, here’s where you can get it! It’s only $5 dollars, and you’ll receive access to five high resolution digital download sizes. You can print it yourself, or have it professionally printed and framed. You can even use it as wallpaper for your PC or phone.

This is a pin up I created a few years ago. Again, fitting in genres that I love, this one features a pinball machine that never existed, but that I feel should have. “Forbidden Planet” (1956) is one of my favorite films, and I love the art direction. Especially the alien interiors, the flying saucer and of course, Robbie the Robot. It’s a precursor to Star Trek in terms of tone, and takes plenty of inspiration of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”. So yeah, worth a watch. And definitely worth a pinball machine.
As for my pin up girl, I styled her after Dan DeCarlo of Archie Comics fame.
