This is a carving I was commissioned to create. The customer was looking for the likeness of Jack Nicholson in “The Shining” when he busts through the door with an axe and says, “Here’s Johnny!” I’m very pleased with this one :)
I carve using rotary hand tools, very similar to those of a dentist. I like to add a bit of oil paint to accentuate my cuts.
This carving is in a piece of Pine driftwood. The rotten spots of wood and nature of Pine made this piece interesting in a few areas. I’m very glad it held together.
