this guy, among other pumpkin sculptors I've found online, sort of leave me in the dust. I don't know how this guy cranks so many of them out.
I really have to think about not sculpting jack-o-lanterns in any great quantity anymore. Pumpkins are getting more expensive and what's the point of spending so much time on art that's not going to be around in a couple weeks? It seems like all of my pumpkins were too soft and thin-shelled this year.
I'll be happy when they develop synthetic jack-o-lantern pumpkins that are suitable for 3D sculptures like these but it seems for now no synthetic material has the particular qualities that makes real pumpkin flesh so ideal for jack-o-lanterns. I don't know that for a fact but if there were I don't know why guys like this would go on carving their amazing creations out of such a fleeting perishable medium.

Initially, I was thinking about making him green, like in the Bugs Bunny meets Dr. Jekyll cartoon. Maybe I'll go back and try that. Hmmmm.
This and all my recent artwork (that I'm not completely ashamed of) can be seen at the original Spooky Laboratory, which is part of my larger site The Castle Monster. The inspiration for the title "Spooky Laboratory" comes from the "Korn Halloween Special" of the show South Park. An interesting aside, there actually is a South Park region of Colorado. My mom even grew up there.
Oh, for Christ's sake! So I have to write a first blog post, huh? Well, here you go. There. That make
you happy? WELL, YOU CAN GO TO HELL!
Hehe... Just a little levity to kick things off. I don't have anything to start off with, really. I'll just be using this blog to talk about my nartwork (it seems that I'm a nartist) and talk about new things that catch my fancy and crack wise about news items and what not. And that will grow inevitably into an empire and I will own you. So try to stay on my good side.
So, hmmm, now what? I guess I'll have to think about it. I know you'll stay tuned.
