Uncategorized Saaby Halloween! October 31, 2007 13 Comments This one came through from RJ, but was actually done by a Viggen owning friend of his. Apparently he’s got a bit of an artistic flare, which you can check out at his website (great stuff!). A safe, happy and not too scary Halloween to all of you!

That wasn’t hand-cut, was it? Sign me up for one! 🙂 Reply Anyone know where I can get that pattern? Reply The best pumpkin design on the planet! Reply It’s still “Devil’s Night” here where I live. Another great tradition spawned out of Detroit! I think you’re going to love it there, Swade. I think you can rent handguns at the airport when you arrive. 🙂 Remember, fill-up your iPod with KISS, Ted Nugent, Kid Rock, Eminem, anything by the Motown record label, and The White Stripes before your trip for inspiration (just kidding about all those except The White Stripes. Jack White is a god). My doorbell just rang and when I answered it, I see nobody there but just a paper bag on fire on my doorstep. What should I do? 😉 Reply I am impressed. I had enough trouble cutting the eyes and mouth in the pumpkin. BTW in Ireland in the 1970s and 80s pumpkins wer not available so we used Swedes instead. Try hollowing one of those out. My mother hated Halloween. Reply Hey all, I am the artist and i can vouch that my own hand did all of the cutting here. I have been doing pumkins of this caliber for about 10 years now, i just print the design off and trace it onto the pumpkin. Thanks for the doubts though it makes me feel good about the way it turned out. Happy Halloween. Reply I’m only Mason’s sister-in-law, but here’s my 2 cents: Mason is 100% amazing artist. His pumpkin is wonderful, but it’s only the tip of the iceberg! Check out his website, as you will be blown away at his talent. Reply Gripen- I’d recommend finding your best pair of shoes to stamp out the flames… or just hunt down every last one of those little pricks instead. Either way. 😉 Jon- save a pumpkin- carve a Swede…?? Mason- excellent work with the knife. Ever considered work as a doctor? 🙂 Better yet, a Slasher/Hitman/Stalker guy.

Haha… but lookout for CTM though, he’s gonna make you pay for that statement. 😛 Mason- excellent work with the knife. Ever considered work as a doctor? Better yet, a Slasher/Hitman/Stalker guy. Reply Well Mason, I apologize then. That’s such great intricate precision craftsmanship that I just assumed it was laser-cut. Great work. John: what the heck did you write? You carved Swedes!?!? What did they think about it? I’m hoping a “Swede” is something other than a person from Sweden… Reply Its a root vegetable, not a Saab employee, although I can imagine they are quite tricky to hollow out too! It like carving out a big potato – it took my folks hours. Ireland has moved with the times and we carved my daugthers pumpkin last night. As she is only 3 she is now scared of it and it stays outside… Reply Jon: that must be one monster potato or you had a tiny little jack-o-lantern when you were done! 😉 I’m of Irish ancestry (and Scottish, and English, and Canadian, and Italian, and Lithuanian…) and when I was young a gentleman working at a department store (upon learning my obviously Irish full name) told my Scottish-American grandfather, whom I was with at the time, that I had a face that looked like it could have been carved out of a potato. To this day I don’t know if this was a compliment or not… 😛 I wish your daughter a happy Halloween, Jon. In a few years you can teach her how to carve a Swede like they used to do in the old days! 🙂 Reply I can vouch for Mase’s work as well, everyone. He sent me a picture text of the finished project a few evenings ago. Glad everyone is finally getting to know the brilliance of one of me best mates 🙂 And I’m pleased that Australianism that is the word ‘mate’ is being used on a wider basis! – SW Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
