yeah, I dremeled it...

and I made sure to have a few cold ones...I got a lot done today!

and I start at the Tahitian tomorrow.

If that one above doesn't end up there it's going to my grandfather's house. He's french, so he'll dig the fact that it's kinda french-polynesian.

I am very pleased to announce my new "association" with The Tahitian Inn, here in lovely Tampa. I will be carving 2 large tikis on their property out of a date palm and a fan palm that died in the cold winter 2 years ago...as well as some other possibilities like maybe sprucing up their tiki bar, maybe doing a run of ceramic tiki mugs with one of my designs & their info, and who knows what else. The Tahitian is pretty much "the" Polynesian-themed establishment in town, and I'm grateful that they accepted my bid & liked my ideas about getting them more "on theme" with some real Tahitian style tikis & oceanic art. I look forward to making the Tahitian Inn even MORE AWESOME than it already is. Huge thanks to my ex-girlfriend, Esmerelda, who is an employee there & a friend of the owners, and who seriously worked the inside track for me.

Benz, Will, I'm going to be all over you guys with questions and stuff....prepare for the onslaught...

Congratulations! you must be realy excited. Good luck to you

Stripped an 8ft plus section on the first piece at the Tahitian Inn and did a little "rough draft" to give myself a general idea of where I want stuff.

Lots of designing & stencil making tonight....

that is a VERY rough draft. I can tell you right now Nixxy, I am dead serious about this one...

I've promised these people something good. I want to deliver something great....I want to exceed their expectations...

I want them to look at the first piece and say "wow, we found the right guy..."

It's all I can think about..I'm just sitting here obsessing over my reference pics & planning the attack.

I am SO doing this bro....

dead tiki!

yeah, I'm drivin' down the road with this one stickin' out the back of my truck not paying attention and some dude pulls up next to me and says "Hey buddy, yer tiki's HEAD POPPED OFF and went BOUNCIN' DOWN THE STREET!!!!"

Ha! Anyway, I'm actually glad. I never liked the body on this one and it has always bothered me.




Anyway, I'm very excited about what's happening at the Tahitian. I drew this out today. About 8 to 9 ft high...

Wow, that's a dead tiki for sure. Horrible way to go!

That start looks so good you might just clear over it & call it wonderful.
I hate it when my Tiki head falls off too.
Especially when some one else has to tell me.
