Good day readers!
Today I am sharing with you some images depicting the incredible pumpkin carving talent of Ray Villafane! A few days ago I got one of those forwarded Halloween e-mails from someone in my family and I almost deleted it... Well, good thing I didn't because I would have missed out on these spectacular carved Jack-O-Lanterns! Aren't they awesome!?
Ray Villafane is an artist from Queens, New York who does work for DC Comics and several other companies, he also remains the winner of the Food Network's pumpkin carving challenge every year since 2007. For more information on when to catch this year's Food Network challenge, Outrageous Pumpkins, click here. Also be sure to check out Ray Villafane's website Villafane Studios for a more on this talented artist!
I am very impressed by the amount of detail in each one. I consider myself a pretty good artist, but only when it comes to certain mediums (particularly pencil and charcoal), however maybe I should give intricate pumpkin carving a try one year. Hmmm, my mom has some hangin' out at her front door, should I give it a go this year? Perhaps, we'll see if time allows...
So, speaking of Halloween, what is your costume this year? I am going to be lazy and dress as a hippie, like always! For the last couple years that has been my costume, I suppose it's because I'm so naturally good at it! HAHA... Yes, I'm a natural at it. That makes me want to do a post with some images of all the hippie Halloweens of my past.... Will do! In the meantime, enjoy the images in this post and hold tight for more Halloween posts coming right up!
