Finky and BK....it's incredibly gratifying to get such great response on this one...from all of
you and the others who kept me going....the bark is coming off the other half-log tomorrow
morning (I would do it tonight but I'm heading out to catch Elvis Costello) and then its back
to work....lemme see....what wild dreams will the basswood produce this time?

Super creative piece. All unique too. Nice job.
I'd like to drink a few at the bar and just ponder all that's there!

thanks GAP and SurfinTiki...whenever either of you...or anyone else...get to northern wisconsin
you are all invited to visit the Congatiki lounge to look at all the "stuff"...
well....it could be the long winters up here...or it could be something else...but I sure have
a hard time carving a "normal tiki"...this is the latest "nightmare vision" coming to life...
another 8 footer...a companion piece to the big PNG i just finished


If I might paraphrase Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers..."we got a lotta lotta hard
work to do....up at the northwoods carving center."
See ya soon with more!

Wow! I thought after your last one you would rest for a few days and...BAM! I guess I should check back in less time than 7 weeks on this one. Great start. Impressed by people who take on projects in this scale. Keep it up, love the distinctness of your personal style and vision(distinctness?-If that's a word-I'm sure you understand the intent)

EEK! Conga, are you taking your meds? I was trying to envision what you were carving when you told me, but I didn't see this. Man, this is crazy! You're either a visionary or totally insane! Hopefully you are both! I love it!!!

Conga, I can't believe how great that last piece turned out and here you go again with another just as ambitious. I'm happy to see you really digging in and making the progress you are making. Keep posting those great pix.

Conga,

I've been back here a few more times...looking. This guy is so great. He almost has that lanky alien look. I can't wait to watch this guy progress. This is gonna be fun.

I am honored to receive such compliments...thank you all. Still in the process of removing
a lot of stuff that doesn't need to be there....so I'll hold off on progress pics for a while.
GMan...I kinda see an alien too...but I think the hook knife will bring him back into the
PNG style that I seem to be mired in.
Ben and BK....you can't imagine how much I think of you guys when the going gets rough...you
inspire all of us to be better.

Awesome start on the new PNG...I see less of an alien and more of a birdman, like an interesting cross between maya and Hida. VERY cool design. I'm digging your through cuts as well, they add a ton of character to the piece. I'm looking forward to the progress pics.

PS - nice work sqeezin' in a Jonathan Richman quote!

Sweetness. Where do you come up with these designs? They rock, and they are old school lookin. Original.

I can no longer carve, knowing that Conga continues to crank this stuff out! I am not worthy.
Goodbye cruel world....
