Halloween 2020

Last updated on June 16, 2021

Since I moved to Canada in 2018, we kept a tradition of carving an autism-themed pumpkin for Halloween each year. Click the links below to see our pumpkins from the last two years.

This year, we continued this tradition.

Out of the shadows

So in 2018, I carved the Embrace ASD symbol out of a pumpkin, and last year I carved ‘Embrace Autism’. But Halloween 2020 isn’t about Embrace ASD, or embracing autism; 2020 has been an ominous year, and this isn’t likely to improve in the upcoming months. But fear not—or fear more than ever before—because this is the year that a secret organization will finally come out of the shadows. They have been planning for world dominance since 1930, after Soviet scientist Grunya Sukhareva embarked on something big; something the government desperately tried to suppress out of fear of what terror could be released onto the world.

Behold, the Super Autistic Shadow Government!

Besides running Embrace Autism and researching autism, I love typography and practice type design. I also fight dodecahedragons during sleep onset. I discovered I’m autistic when I was 19, and was diagnosed at 25. PS: I am trans, and Martin is my dead name. For articles under my current name, have a look at Eva Silvertant’s content.
