I thought I would share my winning entry for the Caricature Carvers of America (CCA) competition this year. The competition is closed to the public and all entries must be dropped off or mailed in. The details can be found at the link above. The link can also be used to view the winners from previous years and will show this year’s winners in the near future.
My entry was carved from a basswood roughout designed by Roger Stegall of Mayflower, Arkansas. I worked independently following my own idea of what could be found within the wood without adding and pieces.
