Pumpkins

Oct 29th, 2008

Here’s a NYTimes Halloween Op-Ed from a few years ago that I still kind of like. The story was about how there is a world of gourds and pumpkins out there, but all anyone thinks of are those Jack O’Lantern pumpkins. There was also something about heirloom varieties and pilgrims (see sketches below).

You’ll note the arrangement of faces flipped from sketch to finish.
