The man was going to have an entire woman running on his head, but as I was cutting out my paper templates to trace onto the wood I decided that it might look top heavy, and that to leave out her torso might add some interest to the work as well.
I am having a bit of trouble with the joining part: I want the legs to be moveable, but have decided that the hardware might not be right. I am going to keep looking for nice long paper brads, although they seem increasingly hard to find.
Before cutting out, last week. A little corner of the Meat Purveyor is visible to the left. I had a big cutting day at the studio yesterday! At least that part is finished.
