Pumpkin Carving: Whole New Level of Artistry


If you’ve never given any thought to where your Halloween pumpkin carving skills might take you, you might not have heard of Jon Neill, a famous sculptor and pumpkin carving master who creates some of the best Halloween pumpkin carvings we’ve ever seen. All text in bold h/t: Bored Panda

I’m not a fan of Jack-o-Lanterns or Halloween. Mr. Neill is, to me, a sculptor, whose skill with pumpkin carving is truly amazing. I wonder if he ever carves faces that age realistically. I think I’ll ask him.

Neill, who is now a member of the Laguna College of Art and Design, began his career in movies as an artist for clients like Michael Jackson, Jurassic Park, and Universal Studios.

Too bad we don’t have a video of Neill at work. Stand by. I’ll look for one. This is too cool to drop.

Yep, here he is. Jon Neill at work.
