Pumpkin Jack Welcomes You!
Pumpkin Jack is all about carving pumpkins. I have patterns, instructions, anecdotes, carving galleries and even Halloween stories. Come in and stay a while. Please return often.
The majority of the patterns on this site are quiet complex and require hours of time to complete. If you find them to be intimidating or, perhaps, you would like a little practice first before tackling them, you might wish to attempt some more traditional patterns here, some Halloween images here or my extensive collection of smiley face patterns here.
Number of patterns so far: 1428
Pattern of the Month - February
As the long dark of winter continues we look for signs of hope. February is the short month that hosts both Groundhog Day, where we want a rodent to tell us that winter is almost over, and Valentine's Day, the day of love. Hold your breath folks. The days are getting longer. The long night is almost done.
Winter is very much like Gotham City. Gotham is a dark place filled with crime and very little hope. Shining a light of hope into this fictional city's darkness is a spotlight signal to summon one man: the Batman! In this month's DC vs. Marvel competition we swing back to DC with Adam West's portrayal of Batman. Bright, cheerful and optimistic, this Batman is just the boost of joy we need mid-winter and so, Adam West is our pattern of the month!
