My Design Strategy

The design strategy at Extreme is very different than other pumpkin carving sites. Other Jack-O-Lantern sites would have you believe that witches ghouls and goblins are what is really scary.

We know better. Old age, drowning, violent death, and venereal disease are truly frightening.

So use your imagination and delve into darker subject matters for your next pumpkin design. Here are some sketches we made during the development of this site. I hope they can give birth to new ideas for you as well.

When I am not carving pumpkins, I run an unusual yet successful business. This year we launched a new brand of bulletproof vests. You can see it at It is a pretty big deal too. It offers great protection and only costs $299, which is a really low price for a bulletproof vest.
