What was your inspiration?
This pumpkin was inspired by the Clark Gable/Claudette Colbert film "It Happened One Night". I used the famous publicity shot of the two stars thumbing a ride while perched on a wooden fence and created a Halloween version of it.
What are you most proud of?
The detail work on the skeletons, including Clark's mustache!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take your time with the paper cutting. People love to get up close to detailed pumpkins like this and will scrutinize every part. Neatness counts :)
