Thanks a lot GMan, Surf'n'Turf and Raffertiki.
I am proud of this guy and I appreciate the compliments on the headdress. It's sorta
inspired by the tiki paintings of TikiShark, with the deep cuts and flowing lines.
Hey Raffer...do you still do a little carving along with your strip and other art?
You were doing some really cool big tikis when I was just getting started...and I loved
'em.
I needed to post just a couple pics of this guy without a flash...it was getting late in the
day when I posted the earlier pics

I go away for a little over a week and you finish a major tiki. Congastyle strikes again. There is something guiding you in creating these strange tikis that pull a lot of different styles and elements together and put them in a new form that fits very well.

Looks really Hawaiian and really Melanesian at the same time with the dot lines and dish eyes, subtle deviations from symmetry, etc. superb and original!

Thanks for visiting Johnny and Sneaky. I appreciate the compliments regarding
the blended styles of this carving....that's exactly what it is. I started
digging in without any sort of plan or vision and just let things pop out of the
wood. It's a strange way to do things but this time I think it worked out....could
just as easily been a disaster!

Things are moving along slowly around here....was working on a full body two footer till
the neck got too skinny and the head flopped off....started a five footer out of butternut
but I was lacking motivation...but I knocked off a wee little tiki over the weekend. Just
about one footer...

Edited the above to show a non-flash picture...better representation of true color.

Yea Johnny...That's the ticket. This is the guy so far....he became almost a dali-esque
looking tiki with the skinny neck...wanted something a little more abstract looking
(don't I sound just like a REAL artist...someone who KNOWS what he is doing?) and got
carried away. I think I will try to finish him.

Head looksd Great. Maybe you should put his head in his hands, you have the space all set up for it. He was just trying to get ahead! Cool stuff Conga. Love it!

This is one cool carving so far Conga! This could very well end up being one of my favorites of yours...

Conga,

You might contact Will (SCTikiShack on TC) who carves locally in Santa Cruz. I drove out to meet him one time and he is a super cool guy and talented carver. Plus he's got tikis installed all over town - definitely worth the tour.

Chongolio also used to live in SC before moving off to Aloha-Land.

SC is a pretty unique coastal CA town - you'll enjoy it for sure.

Oh, and hey - love those last tikis you've posted! All in high-Conga style!! I need to check this thread on a more regular basis.

A-A

Thanks Aaron.
I didn't have ANY time to seek out tiki in Santa Cruz...other than a Hawaiian import
store near our hotel. I was aware of SCTiki but didn't have an opportunity to look for
him. The wedding reception was at the main ballroom in the Cocoanut Grove on the
beach..great spot with tons of character. It was a whirlwind tour that also included
San Luis Obispo and San Jose, but now I'm back in Wisconsin and ready to start chipping
wood again.
Thanks for the props on my recent stuff!
