For this swap ... hand carve a self portrait. This can be just the head, a bust or a full figure.

Send your partner something that features that stamp. An envelope, a print, a postcard, an ATC, whatever. The idea is to get motivated and carve a self portrait of yourself.

If you have a self portrait already, well, aren't you special? Go ahead and use that one if you like - or try to make a new one that reflects who you are today.

Your self portrait can be somewhat abstract but it should be apparent that it's you or at least a human being.

If I've left out some detail, please ask and I'll clarify ...

Here's a self portrait from Kozue

And another from here ...

If you go to Kozue's photo stream at flickr she sort of demonstrates how she takes a photo and uses photo editing software to turn the image into a carvable black and white. The results are amazing. Here's her photostream
