Caricature carver Steve Brown puts his unique talent to work carving these conversational writing tools. Herein are 37 designs for unique pens portraying objects and people. There are basketball and baseball players, a golfer, a fisherman, a farmer, a plumber, a doctor, and a Nascar driver. He has a frontiersman, an Indian, an Uncle Sam, and a wizard, along with a bunch of new takes on the ever popular Santa Claus. And there are non-human (and fish) figures, too, including a baseball bat and a string of billiard balls. Steve demonstrates his technique step-by-step for beginners in more than a hundred color photographs, and a gallery of Brown's carvings will help to stimulate new ideas among beginning and seasoned carvers alike.
