Paul Carrick
Artist
United States
Greetings! I am a freelance illustrator/artist from Boston, much of my work falls into the fantasy/games genre, with a specialty of H.P. Lovecraft inspired art. I've been enjoying music illustration (CDs, LPs and the like) recently and would welcome more of it.

Outside of illustrating I have been learning to carve wood and have really been enjoying it!

Current Residence: Boston, Massachusetts, USA

carved dragon brackets
Two sink brackets carved out of butternut, roughly 16".  Since the bathtub has claw feet it only made sense for the sink to have a tail.. or two.  I though I had already learned a sense of how to carve with the grain, but this project brought me a lot more understanding.  Perhaps it is the pronounced grain pattern of the butternut which helped me read the wood better.  However, on the left piece I was working around the pith (center) of the tree, and it was rather disorienting.  Finished with Danish oil and burtcher's wax.

Sun King sconce 2
Basswood, copper and glass, 22"/56cm high.  The need to illuminate a
mudroom was the impetus for this project, I wasn't finding any
interesting commercially available sconces so why not make one?  As I
carved I thought about how this character has the duty of bringing light
to the darkness, and so a bit of a story suggested design elements,
such as the stars and moons).
