A SNEAK PEAK AT PUMPKINS AFTER DARK
THE CARVING CREW
We have a great team of pumpkin carvers working hard to get ready for Pumpkins After Dark.
There’s something about the fall season that inspires Joe creatively and he is passionate about pumpkins. Many years ago he started carving pumpkins for fun, and as the years went by, he experimented with carving them like sculptures. He quickly learned he had a knack for carving Jack-o-lanterns and always looks forward to seeing the expressions on people’s faces, especially kids, when they see one of his carvings. He never thought his pumpkin carving experiments would lead to anything, yet here he is, the Pumpkins After Dark Creative Director.
Roy attended Sheridan College, graduating from the Visual and Creative Arts as well as the Advanced Special Effects Makeup, Prosthetics and Props post graduate programs. His recent work has focused on Special Effects for film and television, specifically sculpture for prosthetics, maquettes and props. Roy has also taught courses in sculpture and texture detailing techniques in Los Angeles and Toronto. Roy’s pumpkin carvings have been featured on the Food Network and in storefronts, fall fairs and festivals across the province. Roy’s pumpkins can be found at his Instagram account @serialpeeler.
