Aloha,

It's a beautiful Sunday in the islands!



There's something about the early morning light at the International Market Place. 2nd Level near the Treehouse Cafe.




Not the traditional Tiki one might hope for, but I love it all the same.

I didn't paint it, so I don't know what the artist's intent was. I just saw it and took a snap to share. I think there is another Tiki in profile on the left.

I think you could be right, about that possibly being
A tiki to the left.

Great book. But you are also one hell of a great promoter! Good combo.

Aloha,

I left several things out of Waikiki Tiki despite them being cool.



This is on Lemon Street.

If you come to see me at Don the Beachcomber's in September, you'll see lots of pictures I think are rad.

Aloha,

A friend called me the other day. He had to do some work on the west side and wanted to show me something.

He's done some glass etching for a client out there and after deliveing it, had seen some chainsaw carvings in a yard. Asking the wife, it was explained that the husband was a tree trimmer. He wasn't home at the time and my pal made a mental note to call me the next time he was supposed to go out...

This time, when we knocked on the door, the husband was home on a rare day off, and showed us plenty on his property. Mr. Johnson was quite the character, but I'll post a few pics now and a few later...



Some stuff by his shed.



And this OLDER carved 4 footer... and more pics and story to follow...

Hey, by the was keep September 4th Open if you will be near LA. I'm coming to town with a dynamite presentation I call "A Celebration of the Tiki Age in Hawaii." I'm going to show it One Night Only at Don the Beachcombers in Huntington Beach for an intimate crowd. Luau buffett, Smoking Menehunes and a long interesting presentation of vintage slides, original photographs, and talk by me. Oh, also, you'll HEAR the Voice of Donn Beach.

Aloha,

So some more things, Mr. Johnson had laying around were some of his stone work.



I guess he did it with acid. He said he'd gone and sketched the art from the Bishop Museum.
