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: 1457.5

Pattern of the Month - February

Not done with Potter yet, okay? For February we have Harry Potter's foil, Draco Malfoy as portrayed by Tom Felton.

Draco is the classic school bully providing grounding to a larger than life fantasy story. And while Voldemort might be the ultimate nemesis for the Harry Potter series, it is Draco who is often used to introduce concepts and philosophies later spun into the evil wizard. It is his presence which gives contrast and comparison for the motivations and actions of Harry and his friends.

While Draco never became fully evil like Tom Riddle, it would be a stretch to say he was redeemed by his actions. He never chose the completely dark path, but neither did he choose to become more selfless. In the end he remained pretty much who he'd always been.

Interestingly, Tom Felton's portrayal of the young wizard has taken a mostly unlikeable character and made him the object of fan adoration.
