He (she?) just makes me giggle.
I found a stencil online, managed to fold the print out so that it looked right on the round surface and used a corn cob holder to poke holes into the pumpkin and transfer the design. Once I scooped out all the guts, I started cutting. Thankfully I only cut myself once. The scab is still left, but after one night the pumpkin shriveled! Oh well, at least I got a picture.
