My Trumpkin

After a four year hiatus from carving (I blame residency), I got back into pumpkin carving this year! 

This year, I jumped on the trend and carved a Trumpkin!



I took the original picture from the web:

Then created a black and white version to trace onto a pumpkin. All in all, it took me around 6 hours to do.

Previously I've memorialized recently passed celebrities that have inspired me, like my last pumpkin of Steve Jobs. 


This year, however, the election has just been so pervasive in our live that I just decided to adhere to that theme. Although I do obviously have my own political inclinations, this is really just to have some fun with an otherwise not fun election cycle. I actually tried to carve a Hillary pumpkin too, but it didn't end up looking like Hillary at all. I might try again next weekend. 

In case you're curious, this is what the pumpkin looks without the light.
