This is my 3rd caricature carving. It is completed all but dipping it into the antiquing solution. He stands about 8 inches.

UPDATE:

This carving took the First Place Premium Blue Ribbon at both the 2011 Anoka County Fair and the 2011 Washington County Fair here in Minnesota.

That is cool. I’d be scared of breaking it while working on it with those arms out there.

Wonderful Bug. I love your work. It reminds me more than a little of the caricature figure carving here in Norway. Unfortunately it has all but disappeared because artists couldn’t get enough for them. Now the market is just swamped with molded plastic figures. This is really a shame as there was a very strong tradition here and an important part of the culture since the Vikings. I’m glad you are doing this kind of work and I hope you will continue with it. Thanks for posting.

Thanks everyone. Sorry to hear that stefang. It is nice to keep up with the traditions.
I always figure if I make .25 cent a hour I am doing ok it seems lol. That is why carvers do it for the enjoyment and only a few are good enough to do it for a living.
