Last year I worked at a large company that had a pumpkin carving contest. I got a free pumpkin and was told to bring it back in a week carved with something great. I amazed myself at my mad pumpkin skillz....last year I did a little something like this...
Plus this guy:
Via Klara Viscova...a really cool graphic designer.
I etched it all free hand on the pumpkin and it turned out surprisingly well! Unfortunately, where I worked housed lots of professional chefs that beat me really bad and I didn't take a photo of it.
This year, I'm back on the jack o lantern bandwagon. I'm thinking about these bad boys maybe...
Porcupines! These actually look pretty easy, the lights are just Christmas lights inside of the pumpkin.
I like the little scrolly guy. I think I'm going to make my scrolls a little more jagged so they look a little less cutesy and a little more scary.
I've gotta get my hands on some turnips. They look like little shrunken heads...I love it.
