Hey fOLks,
I'm so pumped, I just finished a new necklace, while I was working on my new Tiki Farm mug, and thought I'd show it. It looks big in the picture, but its barely taller than a quarter. I'll be making a mold of it soon, and making resin copies. I was thinking of pastel pinks, blues, greens? Would you like this in mug form?

Tony that necklace kicks ass! I love elephants and have quite a large collection of them as well as tikis. I also sport an elephant tatoo around my left arm that is similar to Flea's from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. That design would look awsome as a mug. It was really great meeting you at Hukilau, I love the necklace I bought from you. I will e-mail you soon because I wanted to buy one of your 8x10 drawings to frame in bamboo like the one Tim(Mcdougall has). Take it easy Tony.

Aaron

Tony, That is so cool. How'd you come up with the Elephant Idea. Kep it up and you won't have to finish college.

Very cool Tiki-T. That is going to be a pretty unique mug, What kind of drink do you serve in Tiki Elephant mug?
I Like all this animal god imagery that people are connecting into tiki.

Check this one out by Bushdoctor Benz:

All of this is really cool stuff and we all saw it here first!

Thanks RR, TW. Chongo. Benz, in highschool, I used to make funny fliers for fake events using charactiers or photos of school officials, school jocks, etc. and used a little elephant drawing as my logo/ signature and called it elePHAT. So 8 years later, I finally sculpted him. Dude, I love this necklace below. I didn't see this at Hukilau.. was it even there? As I'm falling asleep in my class at night learning how to teach and manage a classroom, I dream about supporting myself through my obsessions, but we'll see! I'd love to be a full time artist and actually get paid for it!

Hey Tiki Tony, that elephant looks great! Sorry I did not get much of a chance to talk at Hurricane Hukilau. Can't wait to see your tiki mug with Tiki Farm. When you have something to show post em.

Thanks Polynesiac.... I'm going to pick up the mold stuff Monday, and hopefully have them by the end of the week! Swampy, I wish we could have talked too, but when I finally came over, someone else butted in. I love that hand made book, you had, great idea, I hope people realize how freaking awesome it is and buy you out of 'em. I love the idea of that small priceless book. I'll see you again though.
Folks, I've got another tiki necklace up on ebay:

Hey Tony and everyone else. I DIDN"T do that Whale rider carving. I was just showing that to someone for one I would Like to do. That is done by a New Zealand artist who I don't know.
I guess I'll have to remove it from my page.
Thanks.
T Tony, I know my time was too short at HukiLau and it seemed like your corner was Always too full of people to vitit you much. Glad though, I did get to meet you. Awesome work, lad.
