Cool sketch by your friend Aaron Shepherd. Personalized to boot. Maybe there is a place somewhere we could find More of his work. Cool Indeed!

Hey marcus- I'm liking that clean, smooth style on this guy too. ... almost like it would look cool in a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home. Very stylish!

hi marcus,
this one is looking nice - each of your recent carvings have shown a lot of diversity - amazing stuff. Can't wait to see the finished piece.
i have just revisited my first half-complete tiki (after some months of neglect due to other commitments!) - hope to finish it soon. Was wondering what you use to 'burn' the wood to achieve the old look?
cheers, harro.
Ps how was the casuarina event thing just before christmas?

Big Thanks to Von Tiki (your a bit batty arent ya mate! hehehe) Johnny P, Congatiki and Loki. Ben I look forward to seeing your version of this one, it should be great because you never do anything by halves - pun intended hehehe. Sam ahhh Frank Lloyd Wright now your talking taste, what a great compliment thanks. Hewey It was pretty warm up here for New Years - we headed down to Von Weirdos house at Fingal to catch some ocean breeze, and hung out by the pool watching the fire works - very easy way to pass the last few hours of 2005. I noticed that Virgin have really cheap flights to Coolangatta if you book early enough it may be cheaper to fly up mate. Harro, The preChristmas event was a little quiter than normal but it was a good excuse for Darryl and I to celebrate our birthdays and check out some artwork.
For Kaha Ki'i and Harro I use a butane torch to give my wood the aged blacked out look it gets into the deep crevices and makes the features pop out, I burn the whole tiki and then sand back a little to create the dimensions.
