I count three of 'em in the above pic!


Oasis news...

Good:
Thumb drives and cards in hand.
Loading the book onto them as I type (four at a time. These things are stuck into every orifice my computer has to offer, it's kinda raunchy, actually).

Not so Good:
Looks like the mugs will not have arrived for this weekend.
I will definitely be taking pre-orders, and will have a glazed, finished, prototype there for examination.

The book is now available at
www.bigstonehead.com.
Pre-orders for the mug are now being accepted as well.

(note: this post used to contain photos of two options for the mug glaze; posts below may refer to this).

This is the kind of wacky stuff that I dug up researching BSH, but that just wouldn't fit in the book.

Last year, a cheerleading competition was held with a tiki theme.
They called it Moai Madness.
The main awards were big carved moai.
smaller Hawaiian-style tikis were given out as lesser prizes.

Funny you mentioned this event. I made them 2500 moai tiki pendants as their give away prize to each contestant. So, there are a whole lot of girls out there running around with Squid's Marcel Moai pendant!

Hey James, I don't know if you've seen these. Just picked up a couple sets at Barnes & Noble last night. The tallest one is only 2" tall and they're made of some heavyish stone/resin mixture I guess. Much heavier than one would expect for their size.

Good to see some actual pages, James.
I recognized the Moai from this old print:



...in these avantgarde collages by Max Ernst:





I bet you have one or two from this series in the there, too.

Oh, OW...

If you have not purchased James's book "Big Stone Head" yet, shame on you. It is not only the one of the best books written on a oft covered subject, but is a milestone in publishing.

Sven - yes, Max Ernst gets a bit of ink in BSH. The scans you posted are both in the book, actually. I also go into Loplop, his birdman-inspired alter ego.

Jen - thanks for the image. There is soooo much Easter Island stuff out there, it is nearly impossible to track. At first I thought BSH would be a comprehensive catalogue of all of this stuff, but as I dug depper and deeper, I discovered that the almost 350 images in the book would merely have to be a representative sampling.

There is always more, more, more!

Maybe there will be a sequel that focuses on Witco moai, haha.
