To my way of thinking, making a Caricature of someone is the carvers fine line between paying tribute to and personally insulting them. Here you see the one I made of MYSELF years ago standing next to the block of wood from which I was about to make another for a gentleman I'd never even Met! It was fine making lite of Myself but well... I guess life is a risk anyway Here goes!
So I was given that Dan was turning 50 and he was a scientific minded fellow who had recently taken up Glass Blowing as a hobbie. I was encouraged to make him in a Lab coat holding a beaker in one hand and and I was given photos of him working at his glass bowing. He wears glasses sometimes and Earth tone sneakers and tee shirts etc
Oops. Watch out for that Hot glass Dan!
I sure hope Dan has a good sence of humor.
