Have you seen some pretty awesome pumpkins lately?
We bet that it won’t add up to this guy’s pieces of art. The Pumpkin Geek (whose real name is Alex Wer) is a craft pumpkin carver and has been crafting intricate pumpkins since 2009. He practices something called “4 color carving”, which uses 4 layers of the outer skin of the pumpkin to create a sense of depth and shadow. According to his page, “each pumpkin is hand carved and takes anywhere from 4-6 hours, depending on the complexity”.
His work includes famous characters from all sorts of television shows, movies, and comics. We have included some of the most notable ones below. You should definitely reach out to him on his twitter and check out his website.
