Hi Freddie hows things on the island good to hear from you -sorry we didnt get to catch up on my last trip it was just a busy time - I guess the carving is a Fujimoto inspired piece with a moari spin on him - I get a lot of inspirational from the old masters how can you not and then I like to put my own style in there. He was a fiesty little fella! Another piece that I would have been happy to keep for myself but I am very pleased that Sam got him.
Havent had much to post on TC of late - I do need to put up pics from my last Hawaii trip.
I have been very busy, I just did another show in Melbourne which was a skateboard show and it went really well also, might concentrate on some more Melbourne shows for a little while as its a lot easier to get to and they seem to really appreciate my stuff down there.
Hoping to head back to America next year, see how things pan out.
Aloha Ben

That tiki is about as awesome as they get, perfect posing and expression and a surface finish to die for.

Aloha!

Marcus

I have to agree. I don't think there are enough "Wows" to express how nice this piece is. Amazing work.

wow lokona, pdrake, kroozzn62, aweulekuula, and bigt, thankyou so much for the kind words, I appreciate it very much! As my pieces are getting more detailed and challenging it's taking longer between pieces and I'm enjoying the creative outlet. My next project is a mask for a racing car driver in America and the one after that is a gear-shift knob for Max Grundy's new custom Mercury. For those of you who might not know who he is, check out his websight : http://www.fearisthenewbeauty.com/ He is a very talented artist! I will update my photos soon, Cheers.
