Loki,

I do sketch the piece before carving. Sometimes its a real detailed sketch and sometimes its just a placeholder to maintain symmetry.

You can see the whole process on my website
www.monkeymandesign.com

Thanks for the positive vibes everybody. It makes the long hours and drudgery of some carving worth it.

Heck Im just trying to keep up around here.

Kirby, Lake Surfer, Benzart, Kiegs, Basement, Ona..... sheesh its like a talent show...

Holy smOkes Monkeyman! It looks fantastic! You capture the "tikitony" but also unleashed the "monkeyman" on it. It's a great merge of our work. You nailed it! The carving is all your own, and its amazing! I'm quite envious of your intricate vision and execution. That toucan looks like it flew out of one of my paintings, through your mind and landed on the frame! Great work! Now, who's gonna frame your frame?

He's not kidding folks, I've seen him at work, and it is painstainkingly tedious...I demand he gets the respect that he deserves!
Great work Monkeyman. I saw the LP frames too, very cool.

Very cool Monkeyman. Definately a work of art in itself. When Derek asked what I wanted it to look like, I just asked him not to put the Tiki in the frame. The rest is all MMs hard work and creative talent with inspiration from Tikitony's art. Looking forward to seeing the frame in person.

It is not a solid one piece frame. Its a regular frame (4 sides) that I constructed and then glued on the additional blocks to the interior and exterior edge.
