Roberta said...

That's one big ole pumpkin!
Can you imagine the Jack-o-latern that's going to be. Or maybe his real name is Peter Pumpkin Eater!

This is fab...You rock Eric!

Edrian Thomidis said...

That has to be the biggest pumpkin ever! wow! I hope those tiny thin strings hold out!
Wonderful and so perfect for this month!

Meka said...

Super! I love your work. I'm imagining myself inside that car. All I can think is, "Gosh darn kids. Do we have to get a pumpkin every year? And I suppose they'll want a tree for Christmas, huh? Hmmph, there goes that $50 paint job!"

Bella Sinclair said...

Hee heee! Oh, Eric, that is grand. And I mean GRAND! How'd they ever hoist it up there? I'm with Edrian on this one -- I'd hate to be driving behind them lest that string breaks. Delightful and fun!

Reg said...

ooh this is great! lovely colors and the image as a whole is fantastic! i really like your illustration style. i wonder where the family's headed :P

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

Simply brilliant and fun! I love this 3 ton pumpkin on top of this car!!! What a fabulous idea Eric. Okay, now you have to do a story about this. I want to know where they got it from and what they plan to do with. You bring it each an every week.

Tali said...

this is great! The exaggerated scale makes for a real cute illo :)

Jedediah said...

What can be said that hasn't been said already? This is very nice - as always. I just found your blog last week and am enjoying your style a great deal.

Carli said...

you would definetly need strings to keep that sucker tied down. great illustration

krisztina maros said...

such a lovely pumpkin! i couldn't decide that a BIG pumpkin takes a car or a car takes a BIG pumpkin :)

vjarumugam said...

lol....in my comp the image slowly reveals itself from top to bottom.... you know this image really made me anticipate the rest of the image.... :) only you can come up with such cute and out of the box illustration eric!

Alicia Padrón said...

Awesome Eric! Love the little kid :o)
And the movement with the leaves is wonderful.. has a happy feeling of confetti making it such a happy illustration.

The Green Telephone said...

*LOL* this is superb!! What a pumpkin monster they can make with that one. Great idea and lovely work.

nina seven said...

eric - this is fabulous! i really *love* it! do you use Illustrator or Photoshop?...just curious. you can email me privately if you want.

fergus said...

Great illustration. That's got to be some strong string.

Shugar said...

Aahhh... how nice! now that's a huge pumpkin, and that must be one real sturdy car you got there! hehehe :D

SENTA said...

Very fun!

Tomás Serrano said...

In my opinion, it´s a great illustration under the title "string" ´cause, instead the big pumpkin, my attention is focused in the thin string.

Amy C said...

totally fun, I want a pumpkin that big!

Gaia said...

What a great idea!! And perfect for this season too. That would make a humongous Jack O'Lantern :D

Joanie said...

Haha, this piece is great. That would be one fun pumpkin to carve!

Mike Vatcher said...

great piece

thedoodlegirl said...

Such a fun and clever image. What a distinct style! Love it.

Denise Gallagher said...

Absolutely perfect!
Once again you've got me thinking fondly about my childhood.
(Not that we ever had a pumpkin THIS big...)
But everything is grander as a memory!
Great work!

Denise

Tracy said...

What a great illustration, Eric! This is perfect for October! I love everything about this :)

yoon see said...

Wow! What a delightful piece...
This family is so proud of their super sized gigantic pumpkin, and it's a great idea to have a street display on top of their car while travelling.
I guess they should put it up in the vegetable museum afterall, it's so cute & unique!

kathy hare said...

Eric, that pumpkin is HUUUUGE! a wonderful response to the word, very funny.. :)

theartofpuro said...

great illo as always,love the halloween pumpkin

sketched out said...

At last, they've captured the Great Pumpkin! I just love the impossible but whimsical, giant pumpking sitting atop that poor little car. The string and the leaves blowing in the wind add such graceful movement.

I heard an interview with a farmer recently who grows pumpkins the size of VW Beetles. He says the danger is you can go to far with the growing and they get so big they can explode, hee hee. Can you imagine?

C.B. Canga said...

ha. i like this. you work is alway fun. keep it up

Candace Trew Camling said...

Wouldn't the car implode on itself?
I want a pumpkin that big, seriously!

johanna said...

delightful illustration! would love to see how that pumpkin's gonna look like after they're done with it!

Ria said...

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ...... Hope your family get pumpkin this HUGE too. GREAT! HUGE!

Chickengirl said...

Super fun! Thats one big pumpkin!

Pickledog said...

That pumpkin is jumbotic! Fantastic illustration.

matt dawson said...

As per usual your work is spot on, love it! I especially like the fact that the string is so very very thin compared to the pumpkin. If they brake suddenly it will be like cheese wire...there will be pumpkin chunks everywhere! :)

Xavier Salomó said...

hi eric
Super! I really love your last illustrations... your work it's good, funny... congrat!

Chris said...

Wow, that's some industrial-strength string.

Great, as always, Eric, I like the out-of-proportion whimsy here, and the happiness of the entire scene. Given the amount of joy present in your work, my guess is that life treats you well.

Have you illustrated any children's books? Are you working on any? I feel pretty confident in saying that I would by a book illustrated by you. Love your art!
