Hey all,

Here are a few shots of a pendant I am making for a TCer. The request was for a stylized wild boar hog hanging by his rear legs. Here is the start, with a beginning at the layout, profile, and rough shape. I believe this is zebra wood. This one should be fun!





Thanks for looking!!!

-Gman

GMan...your maori carvings are awesome in the red cedar...each one seems to build on the
personality of the last one....love what you're doing with the hands on this guy.
And you've spoken of your pig roasts....now the wild boar.....seems like a pattern developing.
More more more.

So I gather that friend of G that fights, is freekietiki. Pleased to meet you ed. Your reputation precedes yourself. Let me know if your ever fighting in SoCal: I want to watch you beat someone up.

GMAN-saw you posted on the thread about working space and mentioned the Donk. Reminded me of a story I forgot to tell you a from a week or so ago:
I was working in this ghetto hellhole school, and there is this one student who I throw out of class everytime I go in there. I swear, four years now and he hasn't lasted all period once. I even throw him out when were only watching movies(tax dollars at work-move to Cali please, schools need more money!) He was A real jerk, as usual. He started up, I gave him the typical speech about calling his parents and etc. I didn't want to kick him out, because the last time I did he snuck into the cafeteria and that's a whole diferent ghetto story. Anyway, for punishment, I made him read Tiki Central for the whole rest of the class. I can see the green screen from across the room, so I know what he was doing. He was asking who good carvers were and I told him to check out your stuff, and you were near the top at the time. I forgot about old Donk. I usually work backwards because I've read everyone's earlier stuff, so I forgot what would happen if someone looked at your thread from the front. I looked up from my work to see five boys looking at the computer and laughing. I could see the green TC background, so I was wondering what they were looking at. Oh! pg 3. You now have a group of inner city gangster fans. Gman's art, inspiring the youth of today from coast to coast...
So now all the kids know I make Tikis. 240 future customers. They were so interested in my work that they tried to find me on myspace. I have no myspace, but two girls went home and "found" my Myspace page. They said, We found your myspace page and your name is "Mission Tiki." I looked and Mission Tiki is a 49 year old female drive in theater in LA...at least they got the tiki part right. Six months ago they would have got that wrong too...Baby steps....

Thanks guys! I love hearing from you. You each keep me working in your own way. For that I am very appreciative.

I just ordered 6 new small chisels (v-liners, #8s, and a #3) ranging from 1.5mm to 6mm to work on this piece. I'll pick him back up after the toolz arrive. I already see flaws in the sketch that need to be altered before I cut into it.

My wife is coming home for a visit (she works in PA) so I'm not sure what I'll get done on the Maori, but I sure am going to try to get some time in on him. The rail is calling to me too, so maybe I'll head to the pit for a few hill climbs and airs

Don't try this at home folks....I'm what you would call a professional.....this is likely gonna leave a mark! This is my first time getting staples (18 of 'em), normally they give me stitches. Ouch!!!!!
