Incredibly Creepy Carved Pumpkins

As Halloween approaches, you may be thinking of carving your own Jack O’Lantern out of a pumpkin. American Ray Villafane takes pumpkin carving to another level. Drawing on his background in art and his work in designing models for DC and Marvel comics, Ray sculpts intricate horrific faces out of pumpkins. His carvings look like gothic gargoyles in keeping with the theme of the popular holiday. “The most intricate pumpkin model that I have designed is the Zipperhead model (picture 2), which took the best part of a day. Otherwise, the models take a couple of hours,” he says.
