Not Your Ordinary Jack-o'-Lanterns


Submitted by staff on Thu, 10/13/2011 - 09:04

Halloween wouldn't be complete without a carved pumpkin. We visited Hugh McMahon, pumpkin carver extraordinaire, who has been carving for celebrity clients since 1976. These are no ordinary jack-o'-lanterns, however. He showed us some of his masterpieces — President Obama and Michael Jackson in pumpkin form, anyone? — and demonstrated his technique. Take a look.

Hugh has also just released a children's book, Night of the Pumpkinheads. Find out more about his art here.
