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?
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. :)
