Watermelon Carvings: 2012!

I would fill this with lemonade.

I adore a good watermelon whittle!

Prickly and cute with berry eyes!

Changling? Demon spawn?

The ominous lighting in this shot makes me want to go watch “Rosemary’s Baby.” Rosemelon’s Baby? Seed of Chucky?

Yes, it’s Watermelon time! A whole list of novelty carvings!

Even more:

This looks like a prop that escaped from the set of the film Videodrome.

Sue-Yee Leung is primarily photographic and habitually crafty. Her ideas about identity, cultures, gender, and sexuality inform her work, which in turn is imbued with a wicked sense of humor. In Instant Connections (2011), a Polaroid group show at the Panopticon Gallery, Boston, MA, her work was exhibited along with portraits by dead luminary Andy Warhol and her favorite not-so-dead photographers, Vik Muniz and James Casebere. Feeding exclusively on boundless gumption and sheer will, she is noted to call out a signature series of sharp bon mots when startled at drag and burlesque shows within the Continental United States. Sue-Yee is filled with odd facts and peculiar trivia and was once the only studio assistant who knew how to instantly tie a hangman’s noose for a shoot. Bring some rope, she’ll teach you how!
