My shoulders are still tight from using the draw knife. I oughta do this more often.

Concept art. Hope it's not too ambitious!

Ambition is good for a carver. Go for it!

The big guy is in progress, but on hold for the time being. In the mean time, I realized it was far too long since I'd carved anything, so last night I grabbed a chunk of square pine stock and banged out a mini Witco totem. Destined for my desk at work. It'll be interesting to see if anyone recognizes the style.

Well the top face looks like a bosko...

Yeah, the design of the top head strikes me as out of place with the others especially at this scale, but I'll defer to the original in this case.

Had one coworker say it reminds her of the old Kona Kai in Philly, so that's something.
