Ray Villafane has an interesting practice.

All pumpkin carvings have the ability to become freakishly delightful and moderately scary. The occasional loose toothed smile, a crooked grin, or even hideous face seems to be ordinary. What if there was an even more evil nature about a pumpkin? Potential that spooks are even scared of.

Ray Villafane, who works for D.C. and Marvel comics and owns Villafane Studios, likes to carve his pumpkins extra wicked. You might even say he is quite a “freaky” guy.

Villafane is a two time winner of the Food Network’s Outrageous Pumpkins Challenge Show. You might have even saw him on CBS Evening News with Katie Couric this past Monday at 6:30.
Not only are his pumpkin carvings insanely freaky. Villafane actually went through many trials and errors trying to perfect his art. After being an artist for D.C. and Marvel comics, his skills improved quickly. Before then Villafane mentions that he “smashed” quite a few pumpkins. 
So what pumpkin should be used?

According to Villafane, “the best pumpkin to use is a meaty one with character.” This would seem to make sense in pumpkin art considering how much carving is done to create a masterpiece like Villafane’s. 
How long does it take?

“It takes the best part of a day to finish, but for the most part it takes a couple hours,” says Villafane. It may seem hard to believe that these intricate designs would only take a mere two hours, but for a professional like Villafane it doesn’t take long.

Talent has nothing to do with this fine artwork though. Villafane says, “anyone can create a work of art.” He even made a tutorial for those who want to try creating a masterpiece.

So whether you are a talented pumpkin carver like Villafane, or your the ordinary carver, Halloween can be spooked up with a hint of “Villafreakness.”
