The mask came out great, Rick. Looks like the color variations are gone. The wood must have dried up some?

BOWANA!!! – thanks for stopping in man.

LLT – You the man! One of your mugs is getting used daily…It’s my fav!

Kaka Ki’i - I love, love my new hook…My wife and I have been battling to see who gets to where it. Thanks for commenting on the slides…

I owe pdrake a huge, huge thanks…he took some old slides of mine with him after the Chop that was held at my house and put the images on a CD…I didn’t know this could be done. I just got this CD back while at Oasis. If any of you are interested in looking at some of my earlier work, I posted a few of these pics in the Bilge area of TC. Not many have seen these old works…Thanks for looking!

Wow Babalu, the pictures of your old work are so COOL! I'd love to hear the stories behind each of them. It's neat seeing how your style has evolved to what it is today. I think my favorite part is that there's kind of a scary factor to a lot of them. It's one of those things that makes your heart start beating fast when you're looking, and yet you can't turn away because they're so intriguing! I can't imagine what your dreams are like at night. Really great stuff! Thank you for sharing!

Zaya

Well, I was going to break out, and warm up the chisels on a more traditional kind of mask wall hanging before starting on this larger log I have waiting, but one thing kind of lead to another this morning, and I ended up with a start on this island bunny tiki, sort of, kind of a thingy...sorry, sometimes I have "zero" tolerance to the pull of rabbits Anyway, here's a progress shot of it....

Hey Ben - thanks boss...took it a little further today. Almost done. Little more sanding, and I think I'm going to have to decorate his ears a little.

Hey Hil - what's happening lady? Well, this guy is a wall hanger dude, so he is very thin, but I flipped him over and put a tail on him just for you.

G - I found out that Lapaki means rabbit in Hawaiian, so it's a Lapaki Tiki, or how about a "Lapatiki"

Benjamin - Hey man! Hope things are cool in your neck of the woods. I'll be over your way next month...work stuff. Thanks for stopping in.

Timidtiki - Shucks! beavers have been done...darn, I'll have to find some other little woodland creature to tikify other than beavers now.

Hakalugi, best damn name on TC...interesting mug there partner. Nice teeth.

Best, Babalu

Oh Babalu, you are such an odd man.

Yet somehow, strangely enough the rabbit design works very well as a Tiki. The compactness of the body fits well into the parameters of the form that is considered acceptable as a Tiki. The shape of the mouth conforms to that which is expected in Hawaiian Kona Style figurative sculpture, as well as that which is found in a turn of the century French Pavé Easter Bunny.

Stupid art school.

Damn you Space Hippies!

It's a rabbit with Konaesque tiki dentures?

I declare your work to be TIKI! And, I just had a great idea for a mug...

My notebook of mug designs is almost full!
Buzzy Out!
