This is Jon Neill, a self-proclaimed “professional extreme holiday pumpkin carver.” Once you see what he can do, you’ll understand the title!

This is the “donor” pumpkin where I take extra parts or a test pumpkin to show a trick! A great time #originalfarmersmarket #jon_neill #neillartstudios #pumpkincarving #donorpumpkin

Jon was the champion of Food Network’s Halloween Wars (season 4). He’s also a concept artist and sculptor for both TV and film. His pursuits are impressive — but it’s the pumpkin carvings that really get people’s attentions.

These aren’t your average jack-o’-lanterns.

Sure, the work he did on The Lost World: Jurassic Park was cool — but just get a load of these pumpkin carvings!

He uses special carving tools (and his natural talent) to create some of the most detailed carved pumpkins around.

I had a great time with wonderful people. 1124.5 pounds of arachnoid pumpkin terror. A fun afternoon carve at this years #Cowtoberfest #fairoaksfarms #neillartstudios #jonneill #jon_neill #pumpkincreature #pumpkincarving #halloweenwars

Some are cute, while others are definitely on the disturbing side (like this homage to American Horror Story: Freak Show’s Twisty the Clown).

He can create some seriously spooky squash.
