I won't bore you with my whole story but I'll tell you a little about myself and my pumpkin art. I'm an artist and pretty much always have been since I was small kid. I'll mess around with anything I can be creative with but specialize in pencil drawings, paintings and custom artistic creations. I started pushing the direction of my pumpkin carving creativity a few years ago for a work contest. I got second place that year and was pretty ticked. I vowed to annihilate the competition the following Halloween. So I created this awesome full bodied mummy pumpkin that achieved my goal and subsequently got me banned from creative involvement in all future pumpkin contests..... So not fair!!! LOL Anyway I liked the direction my creations were going so this year I wanted to push myself again with a tribute pumpkin to someone that recently passed but impacted my life in a positive way. I chose to memorialize Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. This was my first attempt at capturing the likeness of someone from a picture. I'm happy with how it turned out and thought you and your viewers might enjoy it. I live in farmhouse that doesn't get any kids for Halloween so instead of letting it go to waste on my porch. I called the nearest Apple store to me here in Mason, Ohio and asked if they were interested in my creation for the store employees and customers. I was pleasantly surprised by the answer and dropped the pumpkin off later that day. Hope you like:)"
