I’ve always loved Halloween, and since it’s now October, I figured it was time to kick off the Halloween festivities. One of my favorite things of the season is carving jack-o-lanterns. Even as a child I’ve enjoyed it. Since I’ve recently discovered foam pumpkins in the last few years and the art of “shading” instead of cutting completely through a pumpkin, I’ve been trying out this new technique.
Thanks to the guys over at http://www.stoneykins.com, I’ve been able to get a bit more creative than I would have done on my own. There are hundreds and hundreds of pumpkin patterns over there, and some of the best people on the forum to bounce ideas off you’ve ever “met.” If you’re looking for something different to do with your pumpkins this year, that’s definitely the place to look! Some of the patterns you see here are from that sight. So here’s my offerings for this year:
Duran Duran’s “Rio” album cover
(Since I’m such a die-hard Duran Duran fan, I decided to try my hand at carving their most recognized album cover to date on a pumpkin. Not my best work, but it was fun!)
