I'm working on a couple of new carvings in hopes that my daughter will find a way to incorporate them into her fabric designs. The way I begin these specific projects is by researching anatomical drawings and then creating my own less detailed version using a Sharpee and a rubber Speedball carving block. Since I like to work quite loosely, I don't create preliminary drawings as I know that I can cut away anything I'm not happy with and I tend to like the sketchy kind of feeling of the finished product. The nice thing about these projects is that they're fairly small so I can work on them anywhere, even while I'm preparing dinner.
