I have been making a carving for Daytona Bike Week each year for some time now. This little guy will also qualify for my “OLD MAN” collection too. Nearly 8” tall he is carved from Russian Lipa. Painted with washed acrylics. His rings, chain and buckle are from my box of costume jewelry I pick up at yard sales. Shirt buttons are from nail art. Foam on his beer is Gorilla glue.
Had to do some R&D with that to get it right.

Crusty looking old rascal he is, nice work. I would like to see him in a group shot with his buddies from years past.

Neat!

If you had come to Oregon; we could have visited a few 100 breweries for research purposes only!

We could even have gone to the Figured North Woods warehouse store—another great place!

Hunter, you did a fine job on this and I really like it. It’s a great eye catcher.
