Halloween isn’t too far off, and it’s not too early to be thinking about that perfect pumpkin!
This one from Wisdom of the Moon is just fabulously done! Yup, that’s her face, and she carved it. She has a very detailed tutorial so you can put your own face on a pumpkin, too. And if you don’t follow her blog, check it out… she’s got some great stuff there. You can win your own carved stamp if you hurry! (Great, now I’m messing up my chances of winning!)
How about Funny!?
Josh Pincus is Crying has some really fun ones he’s done in past years!
(Check out his art while you’re over there — especially if you like illustrations and obscure stories of dead celebrities!)
My favorite is this one <– Pie Anyone?
