Bosko, all these new pieces are super tight! I love the mood that they set with the colors and the character of the tikis. Your grasp of perspective on a flat carving adds so much action to the pieces. Again, great work on all of them, they are wonderful works of art.

Bosko, I just discovered your web site this evening and I love your work!! I will be ordering some goodies for my future tiki bar (currently in the "gathering stuff for it" phase). I have a question for you, did you do the mask carvings for the Tiki Farm bars? I just recently bought one of the earlier bars and the matching shelf unit that goes with it (both with the wooden masks) and the masks bear a strinking resemblance to your work. Thanks!

Great stuff. The story on the back of the big one is a really nice touch. It eliminates the ol' "put the tiki's back into the corner" thing. The classic Bosko look in full effect! Always a treat and inspiration seeing your stuff.

Hello everyone, I have a feeling I should be posting this in events but I don’t have all the info so I’m putting it here for now. I have been working on a “solo” show that is going to be at M-Modern Palm Springs, but it opens this next Friday (the 18th) at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas if anyone is in the area please stop by and take a look it’s in conjunction with “Crime on Canvas, Las Vegas’ biggest art show ever”. I have been working on a group of the wood art since we got back from Hukilau, I am trying to get a couple of paintings out at the same time and a couple of mugs for Oasis so I am burning the candle at both ends as they say.
The pieces below were done with a more “Modern” twist since the show was/is going to be in Palm Springs.
Thanks for looking,

That's great. I bet someone will buy the second one to hang it into their Alexander, and visitors will not be able to tell it's not vintage.

Hello all, sorry I don’t post as much as I should but I haven’t been carving like I used to so not as much Tiki work to show.
Having said that apparently I am not paying attention or my brain cells are going as I have no idea how I missed this post getting bumped up a few weeks ago, I do check here regularly but just didn’t see it, in any case thanks for the interest everyone.
We have three new mugs in progress (no photos yet they are in the mold) that we’re “hoping” to debut at Oasis, I am also plodding along working on my presentation for Tiki Oasis, it is going to be about Tiki mugs if you are there please stop by it should be interesting.
We shot the new Beachbum Berry book cover a few months ago, if you come to my talk you can see it there or I am told the bum showed it at Hukilau
We’re in the early stages of planning a new wood art show (hopefully) opening in October, I’ll post more here as that develops.
The last few months I have been in a New Guinea frame of mind, and here’s the latest,
the mug is our newest piece of ceramic.
The cartoony guy I did about a month ago, carved out of cedar.
The two below I finished yesterday and the are each about 6 foot tall carved out of solid cedar.
Again thanks for your interest and if you have any questions or comments please let’s hear them.
