Just like us, Eric Millikin has a sweet tooth for classic monsters... and he's also a talented artist who works in a very unique medium: he creates pop art-style mosaic portraits of beloved horror characters using nothing but Halloween candy.
 
Well, that's not 100% true. He also uses spiders. Yup, spiders. But only one per portrait... and you have to hunt for it.

The portraits include the Frankenstein Monster and his Bride, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Count Orlok from Nosferatu, Elvira, The Phantom of the Opera, Gort the robot from The Day the Earth Stood Still, Jigsaw's puppet from SAW, and even a cute Halloween kitty... with more subjects in the works.
