That's his skin! With that many women he never has to leave the house.
Great pic.

This is truly 'the pimp style'. You´ve got the look. Ever tried some modeling?

A new bone Maori Warrior Chief pendant I just finished carving for Freddie Ballsomic. This one is based on what would be a typical meeting house panel image. 4 inches!

New less expensive Marquesan Mask for my tiki bar fronts. An authentic but kind of rare eye style with a lot of seaworn looking distressing.

BK-

If I may ask, what do you feel has been the most difficult or challenging piece you've carved to date? And was it coming up with the design or the actual carving that made it tougher than others??

Keep up all the excellent work!

Oddly enough, skully, the most difficult piece for was a piece I should have felt at home with from the get-go, and I did not design it, but it's the Marquesan U'U club. Getting all of the angles and contours perfect and true to form on this club are very hard, especially in a grainier wood. Because of the geometric aspect, it reverses grain direction constantly and all of those little creation spirit faces are challenging. As far as designing goes, it (seems) easy to me now because I've worked out a lot of home-brewed methods and little tricks that work for me now inasmuch as making the process easier and faster. Templates and transparencies and fold-overs and so-on. Aesthetics are luckily a strongpoint for me-and man, do I have ample weakpoints. But when I began, even designing something like a new style of moulding was a tremendous challenge. Being less hard on yourself is the most daunting challenge for any artist if you ask me.

Thanks for the answer, BK. I guess if artists weren't so harshly critical of their own work and thought it was a masterpiece, they wouldn't have reason to progress.

Much respect for your talent and attention to detail (& pimp-nessity)!
