This piece was commissioned by Darryl Von Wierdo for an Erotica Art Show at Kingscliff Australia in June 2004

A little about me, I have been involved in the Hot Rod/Rockabilly scene for about 15 years and have been expressing myself through art in one form or another since my early teens - originally through painting. The "Beat" in Tiki Beat is meant to express the Polynesian drums and the Beatnik rythm associated with popculture.

My Tikis are now better travellers than I am - I now have pieces in Japan, England and various states of Australia. Shige Suganuma of Mooneyes proudly displayed in his foyer in Japan. Recently I have been approached to carve pieces for upcoming resort developments in Northern Queensland. It is a very humbling experience to have my artwork admired and sought after.

Cool tiki, Marcus. You look a little tired in that picture. That's the sign of a good artist/carver - staying up all hours of the night because you're too engrossed in your work to go to bed. Welcome!

Hi Ben thanks for the welcome. I have been an admirer of your stuff for a while now. It is nice to get a chance to chat with other carvers - not many down here. Have you ever been to Australia?

Thanks Marcus. No I haven't been to Australia yet. I would Love to go there some day and hit NZ too. I'm surprized there's not many tiki carvers down under tho. What do most carvers do down there?

Very nice piece Marcus.

You and hewey should throw a tiki party some day. I guarantee you'll get a few TCer's down there.

OK if you go to my page two the picture I painted on the Uke is a duplicate of a tattoo that I designed for my arm - on my arm the tiki is carved into a double bass.
