This was a 3 day seminar with Jeff Phares at the American Woodcarving & Art School in Wayne, NJ. It took me every Saturday for 4 months to complete after the seminar.

Well that was three days well spent, but I have a feeling you were quite the artist before the seminar. As an embalmer/restorative artist I know the difficulty in achieving realism with clay and wax … this level of realism in wood is absolutely amazing. Most impressive!

Super great facial expression. I think it was well worth the time you spent on it.

There are professional animators using thousands of dollars worth of hardware and software that can’t pull off that level of realism! Outstanding work!
