Meet the Leprechaun Pumpkin I designed at the Radisson Hotel

I was commissioned by the historic Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel in Scranton to design a Halloween pumpkin. The theme requested was a leprechaun. The only rule was it cannot be carved and the deadline was pretty much—yesterday.

Why a leprechaun?

Irish traditions permeate the very fabric of Lackawanna County. You may have heard of the Scranton St. Patrick’s Parade, or “Parade Day,” as all of northeastern Pennsylvania calls it.

I had a few days to design it but, things have been hectic. I had no choice but to create it the day before, on Sunday—in one day. Given the time I had, I’m happy with the way it turned out.

I hope this jolly leprechaun brings a smile to your face.
Find my pumpkin, along with others, now on display to the right of the main lobby in the hallway in front of the elevators.

Special thanks to Brian Kenny and Mary for providing some of the materials.
