A blast from the past!

This past weekend my family drove up to Northern Wisconsin to visit my Mom, Dad and brother. My parents just moved into a new house, so they're going through old things, trying to organize and whatnot. Anyways, my Mom found an old wood carving that I did when I was 12 years old. I only did two carvings in my lifetime. This shark and a face on a walking stick. While carving the face on the walking stick I cut the tip of my middle finger off . . . it was stitched together just fine, but I haven't carved since.

I've always been obsessed with sharks, they are by far my favorite of all creatures! So at 12 I carved this Great White out of bass wood, and painted it with acrylics. Before this I illustrated a book full of sharks. I drew over 350 shark species, including side views, views from the bottom as well as drawing their teeth and labeling each page with they're common and latin names.
