The Golden Age of Hollywood: James Cagney
This was for the Golden Age of Hollywood tracker.  I love anything to do with film so this was an easy choice to sign up for but picking one icon was very difficult.  I had so many choices in mind but ultimately settled on James Cagney because of his place in cinema history.  This was a pretty simple carve of one color.  I used a grey card stock to keep with the black and white era which he was in.  I think it helped keep it from being too stark and overpowering if say i had chosen bright white stock.  The carve wasn't bad but could have been a little cleaner with the shadowing along his face.  But i do like the way his face turned out.  I put a bio about his life on the backing.
