so i am posting a virtual-reality-time-lapse-docudrama extravaganza of my new tiki WIP.

this kooky moai (literally "figure" in the indiginous Rapa Nui tongue), was inspired by the fun stone Moai in the permanent collection the Museum at Forest Lawns Cemetery, and also inspired by the amazing lil moai that Bowana just banged out. it was cool to get to watch the fine-art whittler in action down at Babalu's TIKI JAM.

i was strolling by a construction site when a pine 4X4 called out to be rescued and transformed. here is a first shot of my penciled then inked plan and some whittling of the forehead.

it is with the utmost humility and reverence that i offer for your consideration my new project called "Suck it, Bowana".

Looks like a very cool design. Be careful when carving the small pointy areas, because pine loves to chip. Especially the kiln dried stuff. Fine detail is a bitch. Good luck, you've got the skill - may the farce be with you!

hey kids,

here is a look at the progress on my fish painted live at Musink last weekend. i am trying to figure out how to display a live running time-lapse of the painting in real-time at the opening. i may need some help with the space-time continuum if anyone is a particle physicist:



thanks to Monsieur Lozeau for the fine photos.

I've seen a lot of things, but I've never seen a swordfish shifting gears so well!
How's the "Bowana Sucks" carve coming along?

Hey Tom!

Congratulations on the Deadbeat spread... mighty nice!

Your moai carving looks like it's gonna be killer! Have you done any carving before?

And thanks again for your contribution to the Kona show... Smokin' Sammy is AWESOME!
