Why thank you guys

Squid and I have had fun with that one Squidalu shape...We have each customized 3 of them...I think we may customize 1 or 2 more of them each before we shelf the concept and move on to the next thingy.

Speaking of next thingies...We have also put out a Limited Edition run of 40 mugs that we call the "Papua-Ooma-Mow-Mow" Drum. We still have a few of these left...If you would like on the list, please go to:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=35330&forum=12&start=0&38



Lot's of stuff happening with Sir Squid this month...There is also a Luau Pig Show that is going to launch online soon:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=35377&forum=12&4



I'm running a bit behind in getting my pigs to the gate, but they will be there for the starting gun ready to run....VROOOOM!!!

Squid said it was ok for me to post a couple of progress pictures...this is a "1933 Porkster" that I'm working on. I have a bit of polishing to do on him before he dries out completely...I also want to build a lid with a straw hole for him too...perhaps another Babaloon...hummm...





Stay tuned... more soon

I've run out of superlatives to describe Babalu's work so let let quote my wife's response "Oh WOW! Of course, leave it to Rick to go above and beyond - to think outside the box"

Great Pigster Rick, can't wait for the show

What more can be said, Babs, that hasn't been said already? You had me with that first WIP pic, but I about fell off my chair when I saw the one showcasing the porkster's little tail! Awesome!

Thanks again you guys This thread, and your comments really do serve to push me over here in the studio...other wise, I would be just standing around in the driveway smoking cigarettes, and trying to organized twilight games of kick-the-can in the middle of the street with the neighborhood kids...

Been workin' on lots of things, but this one below is headed to the drying shelf -

a 1933 Porkster - Driven by a Grand Member of the Royal Order of Babaloon. (#3)











See, it does have a straw hole







Size comparison -



Here ya go Mad Dog...you were asking me how this was built up...this picture of the underside is probably worth a thousand words.



More soon...enjoy the day...keep Tiki Kate in the magic circle.

OMG Babs, the Porkster with Babaloon is quite possibly the single greatest artistic achievement of our time!! or at the very least really REALLY cool!!!!

But i have to say i am a little bitter to see on the Fresh Pork Flyer that Squid (clearly out of plain spite and malfeasance), did an updated version of my zombie squid, only 15 times better!!!

curse that insane cephalopish genius, and a pox on his kin!
