“Clothes make the man,” is a saying that is helpful for carving caricatures.  Every caricature has a face and that face could fit on many different characters depending upon the clothes and accessories that are carved into the subject.  In the case of these two “Tennis Bums” it is the tennis racket and tennis ball that gives it away that these caricatures are “Tennis Bums.”

Each was carved out of a six inch tall by two inch square block of basswood using only a knife in the Whittle-Carving style of the Wood Bee Carver.  One photo shows one tennis bum carved standing beside a block of basswood into which the second tennis bum will be carved.

Photographs of the four views are for study purposes of a visual journey around the carved subject.

The tennis player’s vanity license plate reads, “10SNE1”
