Gourd Cubs Gourd!

An artist in La Salle, Illinois is celebrating the Cubs NLDS victory in a very unique way.

Behold, the Jake Arrieta Pumpkin – complete with beard.


John Kettman tell WGN News he thinks it’s the Cubs “turn to win.”  “They have the right people in the right place at the right time,” he says.

Kettman also has his eye on the presidential election and created a “Trumpkin” and a Hillary Clinton Pumpkin.

“I try to take things to the extreme with my art,” he says.

But his creativity isn’t limited to produce.  Kettman also paints portraits on grains of rice.

Yes, rice.
