Halloween Artist Interview

Meet Meghan Murphy...

Artist and designer of Hedonist Artisan Chocolate's Halloween Collection "Witch's Brew" Meghan Murphy

The artist behind the 2018 Halloween Collection at Hedonist Artisan Chocolates...


-Tell us about yourself, your business and why you became an artist?
I’m Meghan Murphy, and I am a freelance illustrator and designer based out of Rochester, NY. I create logos, mascots, web and print ads, enamel pins and whatever else they will let me do for clients from all over the world - as well as sell my own work online on t-shirts and all sorts of other products. I became an artist because it’s one of the few things I feel pretty confident I can do.

Witch's Brew, ingredients needed to make your own potion this All Hallow's Eve!

-What is the story and inspiration behind the designs for this collection?My inspiration for this particular set of designs was the image of a black cauldron boiling and bubbling in a foggy clearing, while a witch carefully added magic ingredients, one after the other, to make the perfect potion. Combining flavors for a delicious chocolate confection seems like a lovely bit of witchcraft to me - and just the thing for the spooky season.


-What is your earliest memory of being inspired to make art?
I don’t really remember a time I *didn’t* want to make art of some sort or another. I was a kid who always kinda knew what she wanted to do - I just had to figure out what that would actually look like as an adult.


Meghan Murphy: artist, designer, and creative Halloween Costume Maker :)

-Besides graphic design and art on chocolate what other medium do you dabble in?
I love to draw (I post sketches almost daily on my Twitter and Instagram,) and paint (I’ve exhibited locally both in solo shows, and as a part of the always inspiring group friends and artists known as The Apocalypse Club.)


-What is your favorite Halloween Candy, other than Hedonist Chocolate?
I’m a complete sucker for Reeses’ peanut butter cups and Kit-Kats, but anything with special “scary” or “creepy” packaging makes my night.


-What was your all time best Halloween Costume?
It is probably a tie between Barb from Stranger Things (built my own Demogorgon head out of papier-mâché) and Squirrel Girl (sewed my own Tippy Toes as an accessory.) . And I was able to use the same wig for both.
