Client wanted a logo with Halloween theme to it. He also wanted to incorporate a pumpkin and a masquerade mask.

Color Palette:
Halloween colors with a gold texture on the actually masquerade mask

I love the image. My one feedback would be to kern your text so the spacing is more equal between the letters.

I would suggest not using clipart even if altered or combined. Once in a while maybe if it's just a one shot inter-company thing like a holiday party or something, but otherwise no. I like the Phantom of the Opera reference, if you stick with that I would pick a mask that looks more like it and less Mardi Gras. The loose font conflicts with the slick stock art and as was already pointed out the kerning is way off - OC TOB E R. COS TUM E S - Over all it seems rushed.

As I side note, maybe try for more whimsical approach if you are trying to appeal to family buyers.

Is this pumpkin really a clip art?

If yes: just don't. Ever.

If no: good job, it's nicely crafted, but it's a bit too illustrative for this kind of logo. Simplify drastically.

No it's not clip art. I totally agree with you. Thanks for the feedback, I'm going to start sketching some more design and see what happen from there :)

If you had someone create it for you they used this vector from Getty and just changed the size of the cutouts.

Edit: I feel like I should clear something up, I'm not trying to call you out or shame you on this. Some of us can spot stock art a mile away. Like I said before there is a place for it, just not in a logo, if your client spots it or worse a competitor using the same art, it kills your reputation. We all have a learning curve. All of us. We all started some where and had lessons along the way, some easy, some hard. They all make you a better designer.

Thank for information. This pumpkin artwork was given to me by the client to use for this logo. I'll talk to the client about this artwork.
