Ridiculously Good-Looking Jack-O-Lanterns Made Using Ballpoint Pens and Markers

2

It’s October. And that means one thing and one thing only.  It’s decorative gourd season. More particularly, it’s decorative pumpkin season, and thus the search for some serious orange art begins.

We recently stumbled upon these unique jack-o-lanterns, created by several artists for the group Passion for Pumpkins. Rather than going the traditional route of utilizing only knives to carve spooky shapes, these particular pumpkins were made using only ballpoint pens, oil-based markers, and paring knives.

The process is pretty labor intensive. The artists must first thin out the pumpkin’s skin from the inside and out, in order to make it sheer enough (about a quarter of an inch thick) for the light to shine through, making these works of art a sight to see come Halloween night.
