FROM SHELLHEAD TO PUMPKINHEAD
The Best Pop-Culture Jack'O'Lanterns

If the massacre of pumpkins was a serial offence I would be doing 25 to life. Creating more pumpkin bombs than the Green Goblin, every year I end up trashing my ambitious attempts and hacking out the same old 'Jack' that has seen me through the last few Halloweens.

Scott Cummins, it seams has never suffered the same annual frustration and on his website pumpkingutter.com not only displays an awesome array of his previous eco-friendly artworks, but enough pumpkin facts, carving videos and tutorials to help us all create Jack'O'Lantern gold.

While Iron Man (above), Homer Simpson, Gizmo (from Gremlins), the Terminator, and a Stormtrooper (left) are awesome examples of his work, his subjects don't stop at pop culture. Famous faces of film, science and politics also get 'Pumped' along with a 'Baby in the womb' that has to be seen to be believed.

So click'n'check out his work for yourself, me I'm trying to figure out how cool a Red Skull or Darkseid pumpkin would look!
