Lotsa cool stuff going on here Hank. As you might know, I love a little
paint tossed on a carving. Very tasteful use of coloring and cool designs.
I really like the eyes/face and the nose/arms on the last pics, or am
I already too drunk and "seeing things?"
It's a regular carving factory that you have there!

Really nice work, Hodaddy! Love the crossed arms on the Moai. Gives him a 'tude.
The vibrant colors on the Mezo-Marq are a great touch.
Way to go!

BTW, what ever happened to that Moai hot dog?

Wow Hodaddy, your last 2 pieces are really Excellent, the "The MEZO-MARQ" has details that are Incredible and the "Mellow Moai" is just as incredible with design details from deep within your soul which No one taught you, it's all raw Talent.
It is just great watching you create and seeing you getting other peeps involved in creating pieces in your neat artistic world.
You are earning Great amounts of Respect.

Hey Hank those are really great but if you keep up at this rate you'll put all us "professionals" out of business!

You are really coming into your own style-wise.

Hank! that mezo-marq is mez-morizing! seriously, I dig the detail and how you made it look like jade. I love the aztec, incan and mayan art forms.

I like how you use color in your pieces as well - just enough to accentuate the carving. Mellow Moai looks great as a grey/stone color - it tricks the eye into thinking it's not wood! cool carves!

The marquesan tiki's pretty nice but the moai is amazing, this masterpiece had to be on the next page:





The birdmen on the back are simply outstanding. Killer work, Sir.

I agree, a nice take on a traditional piece. You are a real artist with your interpretation of this style, yet a realistic replication of the symbols on the back side.

A very nice carving.

Mahalo guys.

Here's The Big Mellow Moai commisioned by Guava Beach Bar & Grill right on Mission Boulevard.

I had a lot of fun with this guy and had recently finished his little brother and worked pretty fast. I guess spending lots of downtime in the gym, boxing or at the Dj has increased my stamina.

Erik estimated I may not even have ten hours in him.

Dig the tattooed chest (carved old english font so popular w/beach hardbodies these days, my sneaky Tikijunk logo on his moaicep and shiney abalone belly button...

They want to encourage drunk girls to rub his belly 4 luck! At night this should reside under a pin spot.

Dood - you look different.
