Welcome to the Pumpkin Carving Gallery!
As you can see, I love carving pumpkins. I am a sports loving artist, so a lot of my pumpkin carvings are athletes, but I tend to go into nerd mode often as well. I have only included a snippet of my work, and have excluded the majority of the commission pieces I have done.
The image quality has improved over time, but I apologize in advance for pixelated old photos. Since I am a graphic designer by trade, I get accused of photoshopping my work a lot. I only take it as a compliment, because if someone thinks it looks fake, then I must have been pretty spot on with my cuts.
Taking a picture of my carvings is imperative, simply due to the fact that every one of my pumpkin carvings are rotted and mushy within days. I get asked a lot why I don’t care Funkins (fake pumpkins) and the answer is, “they are gross.” I don’t like to breathe their dust. Plus, I just love the feel of the guts in my finger when I’m cleaning my pumpkins out. I did name my website “Pumpkin Brains” after all. The Prince Pumpkin gallery pic holds a special place in my heart because it fell over within seconds of me snapping the picture, cracking all the way up the middle. I wasn’t too butthurt though, I got my picture.
I carve most pumpkins with a $.97 carving knife from Wal-Mart, a thumb tack, and a flat-head screwdriver.
