Thanks Davez Tikiz, Hiltiki and of course GMan - this is my first moari so it was a great challenge - i hope I did it justice - cant wait to start another one to keep for me with a lot more tattoo fat chance of that happening for a while - I had my first TV appearance this week - it was a little piece about me and the tiki culture - turned out pretty good - I also bumped into a stranger at a woodworking exhibition yesterday and he was telling me how there was a guy on TV just this week that did Tikis - and I said "yeah that was me" and he said "oh yeah it is you - man you look like you've lost 15 kilos since that story was done (last week)so it is true TV does make ya fat! Gonna sit back and have that beer today and start some more stuff tomorrow - no more Krispy Kreme donuts for me.

Marcus, that is so hot. Your attention to detail is incredible on this piece. Each spiral and line adds so much more to the piece.

Priceless.

Speechless.

He looks so at home at the surfshop.

Can't wait to see what's next.

Marcus, your tikis are all so different in style, it's always interesting to see what you are up to. Benzart, Gman, and Marcus all doing Maoris... The fascinating thing to me is how each artist can do the same genre, and infuse it with their own unique styling. Having got my feet wet with staining/antiquing, I'm also much impressed that side of your work as well.

Okay, enough lavishing of praise! Get back to work and show us another new and different Marcus tiki.

Please!

Marcus,

I have been meaning to respond to your topics for quite a while now.
Surfing this morning with a couple of Aussies reminded me that I better send you some plugs.

Your tikis are outstanding! It is amazing the different styles and creativity that you put into your work. They are truly fine art.

Are you mostly carving gum trees?

Have fun in the land down under, I'm jealous I was trying to buy some land in Uladulla, but there is so much red-tape involved that we gave up.

Cheers,
Will

WOW Marcus, Thanx for the pix, this guy is totally unbelievable. He is as great as I thought he would be. You got every bit of detail out of that log that was hidden in there. I'm gonna have to raise the bar even higher now. This has to be one of your Best pieces if not The Best.
VeryVery Excellent work, and you did it like it was just another walk in the park, no big detail.
You know we are expecting greater things from you now, no more slouching (Not that your earlier work is any slouch work mind you)
Thanks for sharing this Maori with us!

Thank you Tahitiki.
Lakesurfer - I cant wait to see whats next either - I have started on a piece of wood but he is yet to really reveal himself.
Hewey - I would like to check out his house too - maybe I can deliver the next tiki to his place?
Aarons Akua - thanks - the staining really brings everything together - it is like magic when you start applying it - shades and depths come out of nowhere!
SCtikishack - G'day mate - yeah I use real authentic australian gum - it is a great hardwood - hardly cracks and has some beautiful textures and grains through it. It goes down well in print to be able to say that I am using gum tree - very patriotic. Shame about the red tape - you can always come and visit us if you need a trip down under.
Benzart - dont go raising that bar too high - I wont be able to reach me beer! hehe. Seriously - thank you for lashings of praise - I cant afford to be a slacker with such great company as yourself - I really enjoyed this maori - have been wanting to do one since I first set chisel to wood but had to wait for my own evolution to that sort of quality - the maori demands a lot out of a carver as you well know.

Mctiki - Hate it when that happens, but thanks for the compliment (Gman uses plastic drop sheet over keyboard before looking at my stuff - if that is any help)
Hewey - trees fall down and I take them home - nah seriously - I contact my friendly local treeloppers and they are more than happy to help me out - I aint no greenie.
Pdrake - yeah thats right - I wake up most mornings walk out the back door and there is a line of logs all begging me to hit them with the chisel....how is your leg mending up - it looked pretty bad. Your little carved tiki went straight to the "tiki room" thanks for that - I have good memories when I see him. It looks as though I may get back over to the states next year - so we can catch up for a drink.
JohnnyP - Thanks
