Shaken, Not Stirred
What’s in a $43 martini? San Francisco fog, of course. I ran across this article awhile back and thought it might be fun to try and draw a 'fog martini'. It was. :)

Ray Villafane
 
One look at his incredible Jack-O-Lantern art and you'll know why Ray Villafane has been called the 'Picasso of Pumpkin Carving'. Honestly, I've never seen anyone who could hold a candle to this guy. (Okay, well, maybe one of these folks, though to my knowledge, none of them ever worked in… pumpkin.)

Want to seriously 'up your pumpkin game' (as my son would say) this Halloween? Here are some tips from the master himself. Want to take it up a notch further and become a pumpkin carving pro yourself? Buy Ray's 3-D Pumpkin Carving Tutorials. (You can stream and download anytime, and watch on iOS, Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast.)

Oh, and here's a plot twist: Ray Villafane is alergic to pumpkin!

About Me

Hi. I’m D.E.Uhlig. I’m an artist, author, husband and father.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to draw. Years ago I gave my wife a hand-drawn card for our anniversary, and she loved it so much she made me promise to ALWAYS hand-draw her cards. Then our three kids made me promise to do the same with their birthday cards. And when I posted some of my drawings online, people began asking how they could purchase my work—so I created this newsletter. I believe in something I like to call “The Happiness of Art” and I hope it makes you smile.
