Nixxon, thanks for the kind words. As far as posting, it is just a matter of time
for me.

I started carving a crown on this log and had started cutting the wrong line of which there was no recovery.
So, I flipped it upside down, decided I could make feet out of my blunder and you see the rest
of the story.

A fellow TC'er wanted a tiki made like the famous one of the Kona Kai Bar & Restaurant.
Heres the matchbook and my shot at the Kona Kai. I took my measurements off the menu
because it had the full figure, but the figures are a little different, so my tikis head
is a little more elongated than the one on the matchbook.

Most people don't think of tiki's when they think of Chik-Fil-A. But I got a call
to bring over some tikis to mix it up with the Chicken,..ah I mean Cow. It was for
thier Hawaiian nite and I only had a few tikis on me so this guy made it over there
with his Uke and grass skirt in his birthday suit without proper staining. Does this
bring another meaning to Holy Cow?



Heres King Uke-A-Hana properly stianed.



Thanks for droppin In,
Mahalo,
Keylo

Cool grass skirt and great Marquesan inspired tiki too. Way to turn an epic fail into an epic success!

I can see the graphic art background kicking in with the borders around the pics, makes them look more professional somehow. Hmmm... I may have to steal that trick - sometimes my work needs all the help it can get

Nixxon, thanks man. I think at times a lot of my carving up to this point
has been learning how to hide my mistakes. That one (the "Pray Hard" Marq) worked out.

Aloha Station, thanks a heap for the comp. I'm trying to knock the sand off and be more social,
but really, just an out of work designer. So I really haven't had much time to post in the past,
Carving was my release from micro managing microscopic pixels in the world of Graphic Artica.
With carving I hack big chucks and let the pieces fall where they may.

Mad Dog, thanks man, yeah the design disease I have you don't want. Unless you don't like to sleep.

Laojia, Merci beaucoup for the comps and droppin in from such a long distance.

Creative Chimp, thanks fellow pixel monky, the logo was a fun retro project

Went to the saw horse with a round log and decided I wanted to
try something different and more square. Took the grinder and made
a rod log into a square one . Changed the design and hacked out this Block Head.




Mahalo for those traveling this way!
