Been searching for an excuse to stare at LaPaglia's lovely mug for hours on end? Looking for wallpaper that doubles as a game? How about a pattern to put his face on a Hallowe'en pumpkin? You've come to the right place.
Somewhere in the arrays of LaPaglia pictures below there are two identical ones. Click on the thumbnails below to enlarge, or save them to your computer as wallpaper! Designed for 800x600 screens with a gap at the bottom for your toolbar. After all, covering up his face with operating system paraphernalia would just be wrong, wouldn't it?

I then created a negative of the black, white, and gray version to print out as a pattern (doing it this way saves ink and helps you remember that the black areas are holes). Here's the pattern (you may wish to resize it depending on the size of pumpkin you have):
To carve the pumpkin:
When you're finished, this is what the pumpkin should look like:
And here's what it looks like lit:
