Worktable Wednesday

At this time, I’m a bit stumped for a storyline for this week’s Improv book. I’m not too worried because it’s still early in the week.

I decided to start off by carving a rubber stamp of a porcupine. This was a fun stamp to work on, although it had a lot of fine detail. Quills are hard!

In the images below you can see how the stamp progressed through the carving process.

Here’s the final stamp. I’m pretty proud of this one.

I’m not sure how (or if) I’ll use it in the final book, but it’s a start. I’m debating whether or not to make a Nutella stamp, but I think I need a specific purpose for it first.

Come back on Saturday to see how it all comes together!
