I wanted to do a Bob Dylan cutting for a LONG time but could never find just the right pattern or pose. I finally started going back over my collection of pictures of him and focused on this one. The face lured me in – Dylan sings with such emotion and this picture I think reflects that very well.
I also tried my hand at being a sketch-artist for the first time and attempted to draw his likeness freehand instead of using photoshop to auto-generate anything. While it took a lot longer, I feel pretty proud of my efforts! :-)
This doesn’t mean I won’t be using my photoshop tricks in the future. ;-)
As you can see in Pic 2, I did a triple stack-cutting – I think I will be keeping one of them for myself and allowing a consignment shop I am partnered with sell the other two.
Wood is 1/8” Baltic Birch. Piece measures 9×10 inches overall.
Treatment is a quick soak in lemon oil and backed with thick felt.
Comments on this one are not only welcomed but requested – thanks for viewing!
