“When pigs fly.” “Wolf in sheep’s clothing.” “It ain’t over ’til the fat lady sings.” We all use colorful cliches on a daily basis. Now we’re asking you to carve them! Inspired by Vernon DePauw’s opera singer, we’re doing an overview of Carved Cliches. Choose and carve your favorite cliche (please keep it clean–we’re a family magazine), then pack it up and send it to us with your contact info and a brief explanation. We’ll photograph them and run as many as possible in an upcoming issue of Woodcarving Illustrated. Deadline is March 30.
Carved Cliches c/o Woodcarving Illustrated, 1970 Broad St., East Petersburg PA 17520.
(You do need to send the carving; a photo won’t work. They will be returned. Thanks!)
