Yup, my little hobo has been named Ned. You’ll see that I’ve detailed a bit more since the last post. In particular, you might notice that I went with a different hat brim. I felt that the hat brim that was upturned by the wind at the back of the head ended up looking too “starched” for a good hobo hat. So, I carved up a new brim that is lower at the back and sides but still, I think, gives the impression that a good stiff wind is acting on it. Remember, my idea is to put him on a rail line rocketing along on a pump car.
Gardening is competing a bit with carving, so we might not advance on Ned too quickly.
