From_Norway Posted March 27, 2016 Share Posted March 27, 2016 Hi all I hope it’s appropriate for me posting this, if not feel free to delete the post. My name is Lars and I live in Norway. For a while I’ve been thinking on a book project based on Norwegian mythology. I’ve been pondering on how to illustrate the book, and found out I could combine it with my photography hobby. I play around with large format photography and came to the conclusion that 8x10 contact prints would be a great way for illustrations. The story in the book is about something called a Vord. I'm not sure what to compare a Vord to, but it's somewhat similar to a gnome, and I’d want to use photos of a doll approx. 2 feet tall representing the Vord for the story in the book. So, to the point of my post. I have not been able to find a suitable doll yet and have more or less realised that I’ll have to have it made specifically for the project. I’m not a very skilled wood carver and I need some help from someone skilled in the trade. I need four different heads with facial expressions showing surprise, anger, smiling, and neutral, and a few sets of hands. I’ll go more into detail with whomever interested in helping me carve the heads and hands. I’m sorry to say I’m not a very wealthy man, but I appreciate good craftsmanship and will off course cover all expenses on materiel, shipping, and such, and financially compensate for time spent on carving. So, anyone interested? Regards Lars Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
