Happy Halloween!

Jack-o'-Lantern Spectacular Pumpkins

Here are some more pumpkins created for the Jack-o'-Lantern Spectacular.  These were drawn by artist Edward Cabral, but I ended up doing the carving because Edward wasn't around and the pumpkins needed to go out.

Art Pumpkins: American Gothic

 Here is my second American Gothic pumpkin for the Jack-o'-Lantern Spectacular. The first one, drawn by another artist, had its face (or more specifically, the farmer's face) eaten by a squirrel. I created a replacement, but it was eaten by a deer. Here is yet another. I haven't seen it lit up.

This time, I gave the farmer a widow's peak and fangs (though the fangs are hard to make out in the photos.)  The phases of the moon frame the image.

Wyoming Pumpkin: unlit vs. lit

Drawn and carved for the Jack-o'-Lantern Spectacular at Iroquois Park. This is, at least so far, my favorite one I've done this year.

Wyoming Pumpkin drawn but uncut

Here is the first pumpkin I drew for this year. The cowboy is based off a Charlie Russell painting (I did a report on him my junior year in high school and have had a fondness for his artwork ever since.)

I took the photo from two angles to try to work around the awful glare.

Jack-o'-Lantern Spectacular preparations

Lots of pumpkins and artists hard at work. I think I took this photo on the first day of drawing (Sept. 21).
