I knew that I needed something fun for my jack-o-lantern this year.  Looking around my studio for inspiration, I saw my ceramic Chinese lucky cat.  I got some paper, sketched out a pattern, made a photo copy, and carved away (well, that was over the course of a few days, but you get the idea).

So, here is my Cat-o-lantern:



And some pics of the carving:





The tail wasn't originally part of the design, but it just seemed to help balance out the composition.  I love my cat-o-lantern.  Why can't Halloween be more than once a year?
