Chico and Poncho
Well, here’s my first post of my first caricature carvings. They’ve all been carved this year and I’ve had the chance to show them at the Pickering and Ottawa carving shows where they were able to pick up a few ribbons.
I’ve actually been whittling for many years, but I only began caricature carving and attending my first carving competitions this year . Both a lot of fun…wish I had started sooner.
I got interested in the caricatures when I saw a number of outstanding carving photos on the web and when my daughter bought me a new carving knife this time last year.
This is the first carving following the new knife and inspiration…Chico and Poncho.
You’ll notice right off that Chico is the brains and Poncho’s the muscle. Together they’re a scary duo…just be sure to stay clear of that bone.
