‘Heading’ Into A New Project
This is probably the first time that I’ve just started carving heads not knowing what the project would end up looking like. Now that the heads are fairly complete, though, I’m starting to get some ideas.
Do you remember the old game show called “What’s My Line?” They’d introduce someone, say an airline pilot, and then contestants would try to guess who was actually the airline pilot amongst three people…the actual pilot and two imposters.
I was thinking about carving a bust for each of these heads…a Cowboy, a Sherlock-Holmes style Investigator and a Naval Officer of old. The busts would be situated on and behind a panel top with the words “What’s My Line” carved into the front. It would look like the original game show.
Anyways, just a thought that came to me…
I follow Lynn Doughty carving his character projects. Recently I’ve decided to try carving as a hobby. Lynn had a link to your tributesinwood web site. So here I am. Your works looks alot like his. Thank you for your website.
Thanks Jim. I’m also a big fan of Lynn’s work and have learned a lot through him.
