Caricatures in Motion : Caricature Carvers of America, Paperback Book

Caricatures in Motion : Caricature Carvers of America Paperback

Description

Whether running, jumping, or walking, subtle twists or turns of the body can ultimately give a carving a sense of motion.

That concept is proven here. Caricature Carvers of America members offer up a variety of carvings of figures in motion.

All of them are humorous and several carvings share a similar theme.

Among them are a cowboy on a quick trip to the outhouse and another who has been there, met up with a bees nest, and is making a fast getaway.

Sports figures, superheroes, dancers, a fireman, and even a surfing chicken are among the delightful characters who move their way through this book.

Phil Bishop provides step-by-step instructions for carving that Green Apple Quick Step.

Suggestions are also provided for painting and finishing.

Other chapters feature the individual carvers with information about them and their works, along with photos of the works in progress, and beautiful studio photographs of the finished pieces.

Patterns are provided for readers who want to carve these pieces, giving them their own personal twist.
