A pumpkin Picasso

Newspapers were flattened on Nate Breazile's kitchen table, where he sat surrounded by the organic smell of freshly gutted pumpkins. His 18-pound pumpkin rested in its side Wednesday evening as he prepared it like an artist prepping a canvas. He pressed packing tape onto its surface and placed the pattern template in just the right spot, after much concentration and deliberation. "I've always been detail-oriented," said Breazile, 34, of Coeur d'Alene. People won't be seeing simple spooky faces or store-bought Halloween scenes on Breazile's creations. For the last seven years, Breazile has challenged himself to carve spectacular, custom images into his jack-o-lanterns/Devin Heilman, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you carve jack-o-lanterns for Halloween?
