Part 3: Off to Chicago!
The skyline of downtown Chicago…there’s something magical about it, and when it first appears in the distance, I get this rush of adrenaline…a feeling of an adventure about to happen…the Big City.
After gathering all the images and ideas (see Part 1 for this rather agonizing process), you’ve got to get the whole thing onto a flat, 2-D surface in some sort of order that is understandable, so that you can start carving without a lot of guesswork. Thinking where you have to cut slows the carving waaaaaay down.
That was the first thing I noticed as one of the tiny black & white babies ran under her tail and screeched to a halt right in front of her foot. The sow’s foot was actually bigger than her baby!
