hey Paipo -probably the same as i've been missing out on too many carving threads.thanks, man. yea, the momentos are the tie that binds on this one. and the two bamboo pieces are a first, that depth on the last one are a lucky draw.(i think). thanks, bro. cheers! can't wait to see some of your next stuff!

LLT- thanks, man. i was going to leave the back simple, but then realised-WHY? thanks for noticing,it does look good, huh? it's my favorite part.

SuburbanP- thanks a lot. they're i bit new for me, but will make many more.I DIG'EM!

hey Hewey- fuck it- take a smallish one and just go off on it! it must be the only way. best i can figure anyhow. thanks, mate!

Queen K- thanks a lot!
Benz-thanks very much.the darker brown base has a very wide range. from black to a light brown, it's just a matter of layers. the cannibals painting actually has not a drop of black in it anywhere, thanks to that brown. thanks again.

well, here's the finished happy cannibals. was done a couple of weeks ago, but only now got around to shooting it.

and here is my first oil on black velvet, finished today. sorry there were no in-progress pics. done at work, and didn't really think of it. i think it's about 11x14. a lot of fun; a lot to learn- so there will be many more.

how it really looks is in between these two.

and here's a few shots of the other in progress-

got the idea when reading peter pan to my daughter last week.
mermaid lagoon and cannibal cove. -what the place names on the signs will read.

it's original intent was/is for a show at a coffee house. but it will be going to hukilau with all the others.

it's title: 'So who was Joe?'

Very nice work. The cannibal trio is a nice tiki style still life, the black velvet is a great traditional poly pop piece, and the new piece is shaping up to be awesome too

hey Freddie, thanks much. sorry 'bout the phone tag- will try ya again tomorrow.
hewey- thank you. a little variety is always good. that last one is finished, but forgot to shoot it before delivering it for a show this evening. maybe i can get some pics posted before hukilau next weekend.
Tipsy and Paipo-great to hear! almost everything is available. please pm me about any interrests, and i'd be happy to provide more info. i was going to wait till after the hukilau to put some things up for sale, but anything can be reserved or bought at any time. commisioned work is always welcome of course, others' ideas are always rewarding. let me know!
thanks again, all!
