First pumpkin this year

So the building management at my office has a pumpkin contest every year. I decided to make one this year. But I didn’t get the pumpkin from them til yesterday (they provide the pumpkin and someone else picked one up for me while I was at Adobe max). And I thought the contest was tomorrow. Realized last night about ten pm that it was today. So I scrambled to make this in a couple of hours last night (along with some marker coloring during conference calls this morning).

So I didn’t do what I would have done if it was tomorrow instead of today, which is spray paint it black first. I may redo it for myself with black paint (and make the smile bigger). And probably color it in more neatly since I won’t be rushing.

Oh, and I’ll flip the tail so it can look like it’s coming from the back. sigh

Can’t wait to see the new pumpkin. I love the tail on the “cat”. For a few hours work, that’s pretty good!

I recognize the Cheshire cat when I see it. Good choice.
