Let’s ride out this hurricane in a pumpkin

Hey, does anyone wanna talk about anything other than storms and elections? Because after all, Halloween is Wednesday. We’ve all seen photos online of over-the-top carved pumpkins. Y’know, the ones that have images of pop culture references with different layers of lighting inside and intricate details. You’ve probably wondered who makes those and what’s involved. Meet one of the leading art teams in the world of fancy jack o’ lanterns, Maniac Pumpkin Carvers. Below the video, there’re some examples of their work. The first one, based on Van Gogh’s Starry Night, was on display at the Museum of Modern Art last Halloween. A photo of it was posted on their blog and became the most popular image the museum has ever posted.
