Wood Carvings by Mark Sheridan

The Start of a New Caricature

Ok…so here’s the idea.  A hobo and his dog on a railroad pump car!  You know, the car with the pump handles where you pump up and down for motive power?

Here’s the start to my hobo man.  Note the wind swept hair and the front of his hat turned up by the breeze.  I can picture him with his jacket and tie pinned back by the wind, and his little dog’s ears straight back.

He’ll have a couple of tickets in his hat band and I was thinking about a bit of a garbage-can-lid barbecue with a couple of sausages on sticks for him and his dog.  Travelling first class!
