this bone-drummer is gonna be outstanding...love the way you incorporate drums into some of
your carvings...and the guys waiting in the background are intriguing too...is that another
"tang" in the works? Always great stuff Marcus.

Marcus,

That is some smooth carving man. I love how you start at the feet, carve an area perfect, and then move higher. It blows my mind. Keep at him, and keep showing us new pics.

As mentioned I have been working on a piece to be auctioned at a charity fundraiser this coming weekend - the details are:

Saturday 9 November - 5pm
$20 Entry
Clubhouse at Burchill Street, Loganholme Queensland
Bands, Raffles of Tattoos, Hot Rod Art and Memorabilia
Full Bar and food
All proceeds from the auction of the tiki will go to Tattooist Josh and his wife Monica to help them out as Monica battles with cancer.

So if you want a Tiki Beat carving without waiting in line for a commissioned piece this is a rare opportunity to get one.

This piece is titled "The Other Half" - you will note that I have previously carved another "tang" titled "The Better Half"

Kia ora from across the ditch Cob' Just joined and am flipping around like a man possessed... I admit I havent been right through your thread yet but am just blown away by what I have seen so far... What an artist! What a life-styler! My hat is off mate! I am a greenstone (tiki) carver myself & have just started drifting towards this 'Luau-style' in the last year or so... My head is spinning with inspiration sparked by cats such as yourself. Many thanks, keep it up, Ill be watching!! Tama

Marcus "The Other Half" and "The Better Half" are among my favorite carvings...if I felt capable
I would attempt to knock one off myself...I love the darker-stained details on the arm and leg...
verrrrrry coooool.

More Progress on the "Drummer" - this one is a little bit difficult on a three D scale - because of the angles of the arms - sticks and stuff - so it is a bit of a challenge to get back into - cant wait to get him all done and stand him up!

I think he's Got the Beat already. Marcus, this is turning into another masterpiece. You get such full, rounded bodies that really look incredible.
