One of the Themes I try to build on each year - even if it's just one or two pattens.
Is extraordinary & influential people, who have made a real change in the world.

influential (In a Good Way) NOT Hitler, Stalin or Napoleon etc.....

I'm Not looking For Pop Icons Like LADY GAGA
(that's a Different Theme)

I think these would be some good Add On's

John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Mother Teresa
Charles Darwin
Rosa Parks
Albert Einstein
Bill Gates
Walt Whitman
General George S. Patton
General Douglas MacArthur
Robert E. Lee
Jackie Robinson
Walt Disney
Harry Truman
Mark Twain
Ulysses S. Grant
Thomas Edison
Benjamin Franklin
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Abraham Lincoln
George Washington

Here's a New one for 2011 (Simon Wiesenthal)

Simon Wiesenthal who dedicated his Life to hunting down 1100 Nazi War Criminals.
The Pattern is Based on the 2007 Film Cover:
"I Have Never Forgotten You: The Life & Legacy of Simon Wiesenthal"






Image


Image



Another Really good Film on the Life of Wiesenthal (which I have on VHS)
Don't think it was ever released on DVD, was a HBO made for TV Film.
Called "The Murders Among Us" Starring Ben Kingsley as Wiesenthal

Image


The Entire Film is on YouTube in 12 Parts.
Click Here - to watch - The Murders Among Us

The Murders Among Us - was an Autobiography written by Simon Wiesenthal
Hence "Autobiography" LMAO

The book is out of print - and Cost Like 25 bucks for a used paperback.
(I also have a copy of the book)

Book on Amazon

I like your list of add on's, but I do know what you put into your portraits, and honestly who will carve them?


Well some of these are In Remembrance, of people that deserve to be remembered.
Some of these patterns are made from the heart, so it don't matter to me, if they get carved or not. It's about keeping their Name & Image of them out there.

Maybe someone who does not know the history of such or such person will goggle their name, then read about these folks.

And I also think Honoring these people, Makes this site even more worthy.

Here's one I just finished about 10 minutes ago.

Sophie Scholl White Rose

"Stand up for what you believe in even if you are standing alone"

I'm really not trying to do a commentary on every pattern that I make - LOL

But I really want to Post something more on Sophie Scholl.
Sophie was/is a true inspiration and hero.

This brave and daring young woman, filled with courage, strength and determination.
Gave her life, to what she believed in. Standing up against evil in favor of humanity.

Over the Years - I read a good number of books on Sophie Scholl, and the non-violent White Rose resistance group.

Image


(Hence the reason the rose is white on the Mock)

If you would like to learn more about this incredible woman.

you Have to watch or Rent "Sophie Scholl: The Final Days (2005)"

it's now on Netflix as a Streaming Video
Netflix Link to Movie

BTW: the Opening Song is "Sugar" by the late great Billie Holiday.






This is not in the Film - But worth Noting
The notorious Nazi judge "Roland Freisler" of the Volksgerichtshof (People's Court)
Got His in 1945 (two years after sentencing Sophie Scholl, her Brother Hans, Christoph Probst and other members of the White Rose Group to Death.

American B52 Bombers, During an Air-raid, Dropped a Bomb, that landed directly on the Court House. And The Building squashed him like a Bug !

Even if you have never heard of Sophie Scholl ---the pattern is striking. A MUST carve for me.

One group of carvers I have are all teachers and are wanting authors. On your list you have MARK TWAIN --- I know for a fact that they would all buy that pattern if is was a cut out. They are learning how to use the hot knife. Their kids love the pumpkins they bring into class. They did Poe last year. A couple did Einstein (science teachers).

My hero choice would be Diane Sawyer. (She's a Louisville girl too)

As the first ever person to receive two Nobel prizes, and a woman to boot too Liz, I would think Marie Curie should be on the list.

I will also most definately be doing Sophie Scholl - it should go down very well here.
