Just beyond the graveyard's edge lies a small workshop cloaked by the cover of darkness. On any given night, well passed the witching hour, you will see a faint amber glow and a shadowy figure scurrying about through the windows. It is Justin Mabry, the Nightowl ghoul, and creator of Nightowl Productions.
Justin has been making masks for well over 10 years and is responsible for creating many masterpieces that grace the shelves of mask collectors all over the world. From zombies to freaks, monsters to madmen, Justin creates each one of them with the precision and skill of a fine craftsman, from beginning to end.... and all by himself.
Being a one-man shop allows Justin to control every aspect of the mask making process, which he does paying close attention to every detail. From the original idea to the finished piece, Justin takes his time letting his imagination, instinct, and experience guide him. Painted and crafted by hand, each piece he finishes is truly a unique.
And as the sun rises, the amber glow fades and the shop grows dark inside. But before the evening returns, and the shadowy figure reappears, be sure to check your front step...there may just may be a box from the ghoul waiting for you...Explore More ...

Dennis McNett has been carving surly block prints for over 18 years. His encouragement as a kid came from his blind grandfather, who told him over and over again that his drawings were good. Later influences came from the raw high-energy imagery pouring out of the early 80's skateboard and punk rock scene.
His graphic aesthetic and love for narrative work has been translated in many ways. His work ranges from larger than life Viking ship performances and parades in Philly, resurrecting Nordic giants on West Broadway in Manhattan, Dragon slayings in Oklahoma, masks, installations and sculptures to unique hand-carved wood cut pieces, traditional relief prints, and graphics.
Participating in both the fine art and design worlds, Dennis has been fortunate enough to create series’ for Anti-Hero skateboards, design shoes for Vans, have work fill the windows of Barneys, NY, and participate in the Deitch Artparade. His work has been featured in The New York Times, Juxtapoz magazine, Thrasher and Complex Magazine. He wants to live until he dies. Breathing is good.www.wolfbat.com
