Well, I'll be darned! I'll have to tell DH you're on here. He's a big fan. I've always been the tikiophile in our family until he found your work on eBay. After buying several of your prints, he's started embracing the tiki way of life and is even starting his own mug collection...all thanks to your influence, Doug.

I thought you might get a kick out of seeing some of your artwork prominently dispayed in our living room (it's tiny in the photos, but it's there )...





We've got a bunch more prints, but DH has earmarked them for his "man room" in the basement, which he's working on finishing.

You do great work, and thanks for sharing your tiki spirit with DH!

Polypop, thanks. Sorry we did not get a chance to talk on Sunday. Your signs looked really cool. I feel out of touch here in Phoenix with all the cool events in So Cal. I may be out your way this summer, maybe Long Beach.



Thanks for the comp. Keep me posted about your return to Cali. I too, apologize for not stopping by your booth. Wish I did though - I wanted to pick up a print and a t-shirt. Now that you've posted your new stuff, I wanna pick up more! I really like the Kahiki one.

Purple Jade, I'm embarassed to say I drive a silver CRV...ouch! It pains me to say that but it does get me from point A to point B. When I was younger I used to drive only older cars, 63 t-bird, mustang and all without air conditioning in the Phoenix heat of summer. I would get stuck 5 cars deep in a left hand turn lane.

Kitchywoman, thanks for posting the pics love the chairs.

Polynesianpop, e-mail me if you want to buy. I always give a Tiki Central discount.

Cool! I feel so much better about it. I was thinking about adding flames to mine, what do you think.

This is concept sketch for the tiki mug I'm doing through Tiki Farm. Goon.

DH, this stuff is the tops! I've had a special place in my heart for the Laguna Outrigger, and really like the way you brought it to life.

Swamp...I love your work!! I aint sittin pretty here with some of the mainstream TC'ers..I got a tiki pee pee spankin as initiation!!!..but I DO enjoy those I can share things with where we can catalize each others creative spirit.

I am about to design some mugs for TikiFarm also...and excited to get back to sculpting. I was thinkin of doing a series of sketches..much like the elevaions you have done above. Have you found sculpters anywhere that are good at interpreting sketches into 3d? Do you feel you lose the style you design when or if you hand over these concepts in sketch form??

~~~THOR

KOOL MUG!

I like the mug design as a piece of art in itself!

Thanks Raffertiki, Benzart and Hewey. The mug should be out within the next month or so. I've also got Grog comming out then as well.

Tiki Diablo, the inspiration for that painting was a picture of the place in the Book of Tiki. I thought it looked like such a cool place with the backlite tiki masks outside. Hey, I want one of those shrunken head mugs you did, awsome.

Thor, great to see you still hanging out with us after the barrage. I think alot of people would have headed for the hills after that. I love your work (whats not to love about it). I think we all can learn from each other ... oops, I just pee pee'd in my tiki shorts.

As far as the mug thing goes, I went into it as fun thing to do. I collect myself (drink my OJ in one ever morning) and never thought of it as a big money maker. TC has plenty of talented carvers that can help you out. Holden has been great with letting me know what works and what does not as far as the design goes. The Tiki Farm sculptors have done a great job translating my sketches also. When you get some sketches together be sure to post them. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
