Bosko, your work always takes my breath away. Thanks for posting these pictures. Our Bosko tiki is hung in a place of honor just outside our front door and spotlighted at night. He keeps a watch on things, welcoming guests and scaring off stray cats.

Bosko thanks for taking the time to post some new things. Always nice to see your
"twist" on things. More often pleeze!

I kinda wish you "old-timers" would post more often too...most of the pics in nearly all the older (2 years+) threads are long-gone now. The Kapu Kai is probably the coolest home bar/tiki space I've ever seen.
Some of the newer folks here may not have seen this short doco on Bosko...

Your dry brushing has always rocked too, Bosko. It all reeks of that good vintage mana.

Hello again I can’t thank you folks enough for your enthusiastic replies this time around it only took me two months to get back here, below are a few pieces for the Bali Hai show tomorrow night. Since some of you aren’t going to make it down I thought I’d post them here and let you take a look.
I was planning on posting this last month but we had a big fire scare and somehow I lost a week and a half in the process. Sorry I am not taking the time to thank each of you personally but if I tried that you wouldn’t hear from me for another year.
Inspired by Witcos genius piece but with a Tiki twist
A cartoony color bar guy
Something about Love and alcohol.
Thanks for looking

Uber Witko-esque, but still totally and distinctively BOSKO at the same time.
So glad to see you posting on here, I've been a fan for years.
I'll be introducing myself tomorrow note at the Bali Hai.

Great stuff. You really nailed the Witco style but still made them your own.

Super stuff Bosko, it really looks like you have Fun with your work and it's SO Great to see you posting here more often. I love this last piece.
I guess I would have a few martinis too if I had to come home to that angry wife!

I absolutely love the direction your art is going in. You wield a chisel like a painter wields a brush - creating expression and movement from wood. My fav would be the cartoony bar guy.
THanks for posting!

I've always been fond of your style. You were among the influeces to start carving. It is great to see you posting more.
