My First Post

Okay Folks! Let's see if we can bring Western Caricature Carving into the age of the Computers! I had originally thought of doing a book but I think this format is much more user friendly, at least to the person doing the work. I can update it as I go along and be as wordy as I want. I can also post as many photos and other related info, links, etc., as I want without having to worry about the length of a project. Also, it won't cost those interested anything! A free instruction book! Maybe we'll start a trend. So we'll see how it works out. If it does....Great! If it doesn't......no big deal.

So......as soon as I get started on the first project I'll let you know. Should be soon as I already have a few photos to post.




    Takes a great person to share his skills with others, especally when that person makes a living from his skills.

    Thanks for the efforts, time and difficultys that lay ahead,

    i think its a great idea and all for free? unheard of now a days.

    let me know if there is anything i could do to help...

  2. I'm excited. Really looking forward to this....Myron

    This is a great idea. Since you have ventured into politically timely carvings,i.e. Mulah I thought it would be good if you took on illegal immigration. I can just visualize a border patrol agent, gun on his hip, and viewing the distance with binoculars while two illegal aliens are crawling past him at his feet. Lots of room for creative license on all three caricatures.

  4. I’m not sure just what the best way is to get the word out on this new blog. I think it’s a great idea and I’m really looking forward to it. I just hope that many carvers find out about it…..Myron

  5. Thanks for sharing your talent and teaching skills. I doubt that you realize how much this will mean and to how many.

  6. Lynn- this is very generous of you, and I know how much effort it takes to make a blog like this. Good luck, and thank you for going to the trouble to share your talents and techniques with the carving community. Donna Menke

  7. Bookmarked! I'll tell anybody who will stand still and listen for a minute about this. It isn't often you get to see a master carver develop an idea.
