I have been offered the opportunity to carve in Hawaii which is something that has totally blown me away and I am giving it real serious thought.

He's cool, Marcus! I like the chisel divots. Makes a nice texture. I wanna see the rest of that guy.

Thanks go to everyone who has emailed me and written to me on TC on my whereabouts over the last couple of months. Thanks also to Otto also for his kind words.....
"Wow, that's pretty cool New Tikis as fine art has been a personal goal of mine for a few years now!! Otto von Stroheim"

I guess I have had to keep this one secret long enough - and since it seems that super slueth Hewey has trumped my grand reveal - I have not alternative than to give you the whole progress and growth of this monster tiki in one hit - enjoy!!

About bloody time! Love it all - from the sneering Elvis lips to the big toe, and the contrast stain and motifs on the base. You're too clever by half Marcus. Between you in Aussie and Haikai in Germany, you guys are showing the world how it's done with some of the biggest and best tikis that have been carved since the glory days of Poly Pop.
This one was done before your trip to Hawaii wasn't it?

I'm with Paipo - About bloody time you poked your head in Mr Thorn!

Stunning mate, absolutely stunning Great to see the progress pictures too.

So what happens with it after the sculpture festival?

And, er, whats the plan for the big log in the upper right?
