In a break from regular programming…

I bring you…pumpkin carving!

Yes, when you live in a historic, atmospheric old city like Edinburgh, Halloween’s a great excuse to break out the creepy carving skills…

First, a sketch, then a bit of freehand drawing…and cutting..

Then some scraping…

And some scooping…

And finally…a haunted house!

Not content with that though, after a bit more sketching, I moved on to another pumpkin: off came the top and out came the innards…

…and then came….a howling werewolf!

Dumpling in a Hanky: available for all your pumpkin carving needs 😉

  1. Acht, it's just practice, there's lots of templates online for them, I just took some elements of a few and made up my own. And the pumpkin carving knives totally help, they allow you to finer details you just can't do with a normal knife.
    At least, not without a high risk of losing a finger!
