Soto says, "I chose a Halloween theme for this print because it's been all my daughters talk about lately. It's exciting seeing Halloween through their eyes. The design is two kids ready for a night of trick or treating- I think of them as siblings like my daughters."
Halloween is Soto's favorite holiday and it mixes in perfectly with the world he has created. Past prints in the Seeker Friends set include "The Gardener", "The Menace" and "The Guitarist".
"I have always loved Halloween imagery and decorations" says Soto, "the green skeletons, creepy owls, glowing pumpkins and spiders... I wanted this print to have that traditional feel. I'm old enough to remember when Halloween was not a bunch of plastic Batman and Transformers costumes. I prefer the creepier traditional side of Halloween."
