Mahalo guys!

Hey dig this... It's my little nephew Ogie. (Forgot to post these during T-day weekend).

We got day passes for Belmont Park, rode the coaster eight times as well as every other ride available. By the end of the afternoon I had this parade of kids following me around to take a whack at me in the bumper car! They even joined us on some of the scarier rides. Guess nothings that scary when you re next to an old guy and a ten year old pretending to throw up on each other... Rita and Linda, Ogie's mom just laughed at us and ate ice cream!

Next day... down to some tutoring sanding down a portion of one of our original four tutorial masks which we're calling THE BILKO HIJACK, named after the surprisingly cohesive confluence of borrowed styles, and some funny old story about Billy the Crud not knowing what a heavy dude Bosko was.

Since I also didn't know who Bosko was (prior to the late 1900's) it struck me funny. Come-on, anybody who's EVER NOT KNOWN who Bosko was hold your breath. oops sorry Hanford. I killed everybody.

Anyhooo... All I know is that both cats can carve circles around me.. probably Ogie pretty soon too!

Here's some pics from a recent trip to Momma Hodaddy's place in Ft Myers FLA...

Why there's the Grande Old Dame now, sporting a glass Humuhumu by Turtle...


I swear my father's liquor cabinet hasn't been rooted through for fifteen years or more...

What a surprise to find loads of swinging mid-century party gear and Hawaiiana including random vintage swizzles, napkin sets, giant carved silverware, orchid place-mats, mosaic ashtrays and an assortment of funky trivets including an wooden OMC and a set of ceramic OMC ashtrays in the ever popular "french onion soup bowl style"!





Wanted to tease my pal Vigsy so had to dig into mom's old 33's & 78's. Apparently working at a record shop and radio station had its perks! The soundtracks to my jazzy, easy-listening childhood.


Hey look... an album by God himself.
A Disc Jockey sample to be exact.



(The first albums of my very own were gifts from Mom: Beatles Red & Blue on Red & Blue vinyl of course. Thanks for letting me grow up at least semi-normal, Ma! I can't imagine what would have become of me if I thought music ended when Frank Sinatra lost his voice!)

Mahalo for checking in Big Daddy & LLT!

Here's my latest. trying to tie up loose ends before starting anything new. Mindfullness. I've got a half dozen projects started and dropped here and there not to mention the contents of Benzart's CHALLENGE BOX. I have resolved to carve every scrap by midnite 2010!

"Mellow Moai avec Birdmen". Mexican Fan Palm & mixed media.

Mahalo fellas!

I started this moai just before a chop at Meiko's house several months ago and he's been patiently waiting for me to become motivated again.

Your feedback is MUCH appreciated and VERY encouraging.

Also managed to finish up "The MEZO-MARQ".



For the low down and more detailed pics of this very personally satisfying collaboration w/ my buddy Erik The Red please check out Freaky Boutiki Marketplace thread and tell me what you think...

hodadhank!

Wow, you're cranking out some very creative and inspirational pieces!

Love the paint technique on the moai!

The shades of grey really show off the features!

And the Marquesan... great use of color and some great detail work going on... something new jumps out every time I look at it.

Keep up the creative carvings!
