I had the pleasure of spending two days this week at a Caricature Bust Craving Seminar offered at the local Lee Valley store.

The first day focussed on blocking out the bust. In this case we were using a 2.5” x 2.5” x 4” basswood block. On the second day the focus was on creating the expression.

The focus was on learning how to set up the carving and techniques to establish the various features of the face. Other than to create a face with some character there was no defined picture or model. This old man emerged from the wood.
