Man Conga! Those are some wikkid logs you have there. NICE! And what's the deal with this new carve? He looks like one of Tim Burton's critters? What is the story on this kat?

Hey Babs and GMan, thanks for taking a peek at Conga's latest abberation.
Tim Burton, huh GMan? I can see it...the story behind this guy is pretty
simple. We have seen some really great Ku carvings lately, notably
Tahitiki and Seeksurf, impeccable form, hard to beat.
I have had a Ku in my head for some time (while I was doing birds/hogfish/
manaia over the winter) but decided to do more of an upright position
figure along the lines of the primitive stuff in Meyer's "Oceanic Art"
books. Also looking for a more creepy sinewy figure. Tim Burton? Yea
pretty close!
Not sure where this will lead, might lead to an early spring bonfire

Thanks a lot Johnny, Hank, Ben, Seeks and Mooney. Having fun chizzlin'
at the new guy, but I have to be careful. If he gets too much skinnier
he will become a five foot pendant.
And Ben, don't worry about Spy, I always make him wear a hat when he takes
the garbage out.

You found the best fitting hat for him. No need to carve one.

Hi guys and thanks for taking a look at the Conga Corner.
Well, I am frustrated by the continued presence of snow. I want
to carve outside and I can't...I want to ride my new bike and I can't.
So I continue to chisel away at perhaps the skinniest tiki of all time.
I now think I will put a chunk of lead in his head and call him the
largest tiki pencil ever created.


This guy has posed a few problems for me but as usual I am starting
to feel like he's family and that I shouldn't use him for firewood.

Cool looking tiki Conga and Far from firewood I'd say. However, send him to me so I can burn him as I need more firewood for my fireplace. Just tie him on the back of your new bike and head on down, we'll burn him together after we do some more work on him!
Love the Spy Hat too!

Hell no you cant burn family.

Well then I'm the second closet to the
thinnest tiki.

I hope that i can someday relax my stringent (stay within the lines)
traditional style and try something more creative like the
stuff you do.
