It only made sense for Secret Santa to carve a wooden Olifant sculpture. It took about five hours to carve over a few evenings. It was a blast to carve. I almost didn’t want to give it away. The design of the character provided fun shapes, curves and volumes to bring the form to life.
Working in a creative industry provides me an opportunity to work with many talented people. My department held a Secret Santa recently and my recipient was my co-worker Doug. Doug writes children’s stories about a character Olifant who forages for berries in Central Park.
