Vamp - When it comes to nose-picking, I've got skillz!

Surfin - Wicked Pissah! Man, I'm glad I lost my Boston accent....but it's nice to have you back 'round. Don't go away for so long next time. Yep, he's gonna get plenny-O-surface carving......soon.

Benzo - Work? YES, it feels like work! My bonz are tired. That damn gator wrecked me.

Bowana - Howdie-hey! Glad you think he is worth a nose-pick, but he aint much compared to whattcha got goin' on over there in the Carve-O-Copia.......

Hewey - I know he won't sand himself....I've asked him a hundred times. Hell, he won't even pick up his dirty clothes from the bathroom floor!

Benella - Thanks for noticing the ears. Lot's more stuff like that to come....

Tama - Yes, that tattoo is the freaking bomb! I am flattered beyond words. As for the g8trs, I'll be back out on the lake in a few days. That first guy took the starch right outta me.

Kiwishaman - Helloha! Glad you likee

Conga - Nose to toes, who knows? Gman nose......

Robin - Strength and wisdom, aye? I wonder why I feel stupid and tired?

All - I worked on his left side today, mostly doing small cleanup tasks with some smaller chisels. I did a little sanding, but my left arm has had it. I can't hold him or push the paper with it. Time to stop. Hopefully more tomorrow.....

G: Really like the way you did the fingers. I'm going to have to come up with that idea on my own sometime in the near future and give that look a try.

Thanks for helping me come up with this idea on my own. Those guys are right: You are the man!

Buzzy Out!

Yes, Yes, Yes, I LOVE the Clean-up stage where you go around refining all the detail. It breaths a living breath into the piece a bit at a time. Feet/toes look great and I LOVE that Sneaker!
Bring him with you, HE CAN Stand it, I Promise!

Buzz - Glad I could help you come up with that on your own! Actually, the Maori came up with those fingers on THEIR own a long time before we thought of coming up with it on our own. Savy?

Benz - You know I like my toez in the photoz......

TFreak - In the pool aye? Not my guy, not yet at least.....

TFisher - Where you bean hiding? Yep, same old tired cedar but this is the last of it for now. I need to get out there and find some trees that need gravity checks.....

Thanks for looking,

-G

Sweetness from the cedar. That is an honor having your art permanently affixed to somebody!

Glad the hunt went well!

Benz nailed it...this is the part where it all happens. Little by little the final personality emerges. Tihei mauri ora!
PS please stop flaunting your pool and your warm weather

JohnnyP - Yep, that tattoo is neato - and it's gonna get better as it is filled in. Thanks again for the horn. One of my friends who hunts with me wants a croc horn too, only a little smaller - we should talk.....

Paipo - Sorry about the pics mate. Here's a pic of some bad weather for you. It's not all sun and fun here....(actually it is )

Gman!! Your chops are always top-notch and always improving. This new guy has so much personality. I bet he could snap you in two without much effort. I'm looking forward to seeing him progress.

Sorry for not being around lately. I think my head is finally screwed on right. I'll check in more often, I promise.

BTW, your tiki is looking good, but holy shit, look at that pool!!

Word!

GMAN - Amazing feets of carving as usual but, seriously how do you make these shot's happen? It looks like he's floating? Like the toes, love the nose... I'm suspicious though, he looks a little bit like you?

Hey GMan,

Just wondering on the pics you posted to the nose work you were doing, what is the pinkish looking color around the nose?

I hope the other spots on the pics are drops of sweat and not blood!

Finky - Glad to have you back! Thanks for the compliment

Tikisgrl - Amazing feetz! Yes. Looks like me....Nope, he's lookin better...

BigT - The pink = the heartwood. That's the red in red cedar.

SneakyT - Glad you like the fingerz!

No carving yet this weekend. Been working around the clock trying to get caught up after taking a few days of vacation ($%^$$@QQ!###E$). If I can get further along with my work tonight, I may crank up the saw and do a rough out tomorrow just to let off some steam.
