Jack-O-Lanterns!

Pumpkin carving! It’s one of those funny types of art like Easter egg painting or decorating gingerbread cookies that you only ever get to do once a year. I never seem to get much better at pumpkin carving, but that doesn’t stop me from getting pretty intense about it! Most years I manage to injure myself slightly.

My jack-o-lanterns from the last three years are in the photo above. Once or twice I’ve been organized enough to borrow clay tools from a friend, but most years I just use a kitchen knife and a spoon to scrape away the pumpkin flesh. Three-dimensional art has never been my forte so I usually end up with something only vaguely resembling my original idea, but it’s fun all the same.

Do you get into pumpkin carving? Are you a fan of the classic triangles eyes and mouth jack-o-lantern, or do you get a little fancier?

Mini-Contest!
Okay, this isn’t even really a contest. Send me pictures of your jack-o-lanterns! I’ll post them in next week’s newspost with a link to your comic. :)

Thanks, guys! Apparently I'm underselling my pumpkin carving skills, haha!

Holy smokes! Those are incredible! I assumed they were screengrabs, too. Damn!

Thank you! It might validate my claim, though, if i tell you that this year's pumpkin (lower right) was supposed to be the Star Trek salt monster initially?

Yours claims not to excel at three dimensional art are falling on deaf ears here! I am seriously impressed. The traditional design is about all I can manage but if I make one it's usually not until the 31st.
