Conga, thanks so much!

I too hope to continue exploring the PNG work. I really like the earthy colors that are incorporated into their work, and have been striving to include a bit more color to a lot of my new work.

Tiki Joe's Pop, many thanks for your kind compliments! I have a lot of fun playing with depth on these flat pieces, and there are many varying depths on all the latest work.

Sam, thanks for stopping by my thread and I appreciate the compliment!

I've thought of the "poker chip" thing many times looking at the signs from a distance.

Seeks, mahalos! The wood speaks... and breathes!

laojia, many thanks to you!

With many pieces it is a tough decision regarding details... sometimes too much, sometimes not enough and sometimes just right!

Clarita, thank you and thanks for stopping by! It does look a bit like a beard or goatee!

Benz, the compliment is much appreciated! Thanks for checking in!

Another new piece on the drying table... hopefully a picture soon!

Just popping in to tell ya that this is a super cool thread, just finished reading the entire thing end to end over 3 work shifts, Excellent work! very inspiring. Do you still get work over to Third Coast? if so might have to road trip down there, hear there's a surf shop in Empire (Mi.) now, Sleeping Bear Surf & kayak, maybe they might need some tiki?

Anyhoo, good stuff man. . .

Aloha thick!

Thanks for taking the time out to check out my stuff... yea, I guess there's a bunch of variety in this thread... much more not pictured over the years though!


I haven't had anything over at Third Coast Surf Shop in a few years... the main business there is sunglasses and swimwear and tiki hasn't really caught on with the public in the Great Lakes.

I've got lots of surfer friends in the Great Lakes who own at least one of my pieces though, and I continue to vend at The Dairyland Surf Classic every year.

I'll have to look into the other businesses you suggested, thanks for the info!

Locally, the Tip Top Atomic Shop carries my work here in Milwaukee. A great little retro shop with great owners!

LAKE!
Your recent foray into PNG is a fantastic representation. Love the colors and the additional touches.
Great design for sneakyjack too!

See you on May 3rd!!!

Aloha Jim!

Thanks so much for the compliment on Pagui!

I spent a lot of time thinking this guy over before starting... wanted to get the color scheme right and the general feel of PNG since it was something new for me.

Glad to know that I'm headed in the right direction as I'd like to explore it further.

May 3'rd is gonna be a hoot... looking forward to it and it will be good to see you again!

Hoping to get some water time in also while I'm in the OC!
