Here are the first prints of the main colour block, drying on the line!

Two sides completed in the wood carving project – the block is a 75mm cube of limewood and has been carved with a mixture of hand tools and power tools. It is still a bit rough but getting there.
Initial sketch made of a ‘Green Man’ (also known as ‘Jack ‘o’ Lantern’) probably to be used on a carved wood structure to house tealights. The design uses elements from sketches I made of wooden stumps, swirls and patterns from ancient stone carvings and some traditional carved stones found on many old churches.
Continuing the theme of boxes showing letters and words, I have been trying to ‘soften’ up the font to be more appropriate for the word definitions. Words such as ‘joyful’ and ‘gentleness’ need to be less geometric in their design. However, a box with the letters cut out isn’t robust enough so I have decided to mock up a box with the letters ‘carved’ into the faces. This will be developed using wooden blocks and letters standing proud from the background.
