Carlin was an idol of mine while growing up. I can credit him and a handful of others for my skeptical and scientific outlook to life and living. I took his demise in 2008 pretty hard and still admire his humor and no-BS approach to life.
I found this black and white picture of him recently in a magazine and knew I had to capture this image in a scrollwork. I hope I did him justice.
The wood I used I harvested myself from a fallen branch of Maple that I slabbed out a few years ago.
Piece is around 1/4” thick and 11” high.
Everything was soaked well in lemon oil, black felt was affixed to the surrounding piece and everything was then adhered onto the felt for a “floating” appearance.
I think it’s the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately. – G.C.
