Swampfire, glad you like it, I like it. And I bet TC would like to still see you do one of your monkey designs as a mug. I don't know if I said this but you seem to be liking your monkey more It seem like the monkey is coming out as a favorite character. And I think its because tikis are one thing and these monkeys seem to represent men's qualities even more after drinking.

Paipo "Monkeys with Tiki" thing, but I'm definitely a convert now" Did you see the new mugs over at Munktiki?

Tikisgrl "show us some of his work in progress or post some pictures or introduce himself" Has no camera or computer. Just wanted to make me happy.

L.L.T. Thanks, You know I love those new Birdman painting you did. Hopefully one day I will be able to get my hands on one, but knowing how many they will be loved , it will be hard.
But those painting, they give me an idea

Looks like Creating was busy this weekend, cool

#1 Pretty cool Teakey. I was wondering when we could finally see this one.
#2 Is there a ipod or something in his ears I cannot see? does he sing? Does he get the radio like Gilligan's fillings?
#3 How big is it?

Oh crap! I'm not silently enjoying your thread anymore...
Enjoying it though,
Buzzy Out!

Hey B.P. Buzzy , glad you likey. I actually started the mug before I bought a single mug, but half way through, got my imported Munktiki U Bastard mug. I thought after that all mugs were that big. I started buying mugs to compare with mine. Ever since, most mugs look larger in their pictures then when I see them come out from a box of white peanuts.

#2 Musicial, yes. A rattle in it just like Munktiki, with five different sized balls for slightly different chines. The cool thing is, it doesn't look added on or an afterthought. Its built into the head. A false bottom.

#3 Huge, Not counting the hidden compartment, it holds I believe its 21oz.

Thanks for looking, come again.

Just got to see my May 27 birthday gift by accident. It was sitting unglazed at the studio that I go to. And wow is it a stunner. Gecko says that his mug is the first one to stand on its own two feet. Well, if I'm not mistaken, "This is the first tiki mug to stand on its own four feet." Again image used from TikiMagazine and from an artist that is not as common.

So here is the update on the BigBen. All glazed up and sitting in itself state of birth (fire).

Very happy happy with the way the glaze came out. Its almost an TikiFArm type galze (little less golden and more dark brown) and the first time that I have used this glaze and first time a glaze like this (glossy, transparent) on one of my mugs.


inside is what looks like sharkskin.

Sharkskin looks black without the strong sunlight

next to the mug that was my first bought limited production. Was my favorite Moai.

The difference, one is hand-made and only one in the world and the other is not.


the glaze worked like magic

Big Ben turned out great! You should have a mold made of that sucker, if it broke it would be tragic.

Sweet that you guys like it.

Ok, maybe this will work, the next thing that you make and it looks a little different, I'll make a mold of that and make five, smash the mold, give you one free of charge.
Ben, you ever thought of doing a birdman type thing. Thats what I want to do next. Or Kava Kava would be up your alley

Thanks guys for the feedback.

Ok here is your first looks at my newest mug. It for sale too. It would actually be the first "mug" that I will have sold, if it sells (long story).

Its got the most beautiful inside of any mugs, don't got a pic on me but here is that I do have. Asking price is probably a buck twenty. Send a PM if you are interested. Its an "Action Mug" too. Aren't you lucky.

color: Hulk Green

I love art but I have no money. Ever see a $10,000 painting that you just had to buy but didn't have that dough to spend. Thats me and thats all the time. I did something about it..


This is a Jeff Soto painting hanging in a gallery. Its my favorite one too. Jeff is a big time painting, up there with the best.


bad picture but looked sweet with morning sun burning through the window. This painting is hanging up in my bedroom.

Now, ever see "Thomas Crown Affair"(the newest one). You are probably thinking I stole it. I painted it. My second painting ever. Zero painting classes, self taught. This is a foraged painting. Its 99+% accurate. The artist himself wouldn't know the difference. I probably spent more time looking at this painting then anyone ever did/will. Color size everything. I called up Jeff, He knows. Its not for sell ,ever, I love it too much. First thing I wake up too. Starts the day off right.

What no Jeff Soto fans?

ok, always the fan of Flounder (www.flounderart.com) who is MIA at the moment, at least according to his website.

When I came onto TC a few years back, the first great tiki painter that I saw was Flounder but most of the tikis that he did, were older pieces that were all sold up. He did a cool sereis of Tiki MUgs on burlap and the results were incredible. Looked so real, that your swore it was a photo.

I never painted a single thing then and thought, I would never be able to paint with theses results. Since then I have done three paintings. My third painting is of MY favorite mug. Painted on found board, and looking for found frame to finish it off. Here it is. Just took a quick photo, badly washed out color and richness from real painting.

enjoy.

my painting on left, real mug on right
