I spent an enjoyable morning today with Eldon Humphries, a local member of the Caricature Carvers of America, a collection of notable caricature carvers developing some new skills that I hope to bring to my automata characters. Thanks for the guidance Eldon!
Here's a head I made this morning under Eldon's watchful eye. I'm anxious to get going on heads for my current piece.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
