Aloha friends sorry for my long absence - things have just got real busy on the home front and my commissions for carvings is piling up so I needed to get the chisel and mallet into gear so I can clear some of the backlog before i head back to Hawaii next month from 25th June to 25th July - I have been asked to carve at the Antiques and Collectibles Show and also be a guest at a Hospitality Show. Good for getting my name out there but not so good for my carvings progress. If anyone is going to be around Honolulu at that time I would sure like to meet up and have a drink, so get in touch with me or I go to The Duke on a Friday night.

I have been too busy to take progress shots - I even sent out one piece without having a single shot of it!! that was a f*ck up!! and now I cant get in touch with the guy so a bit annoyed - I guess you will have to take my word that it was a great piece hehehe.
I did an interview with Koop Kooper - link is attached so check it out. I probably raved on a little but if you've met me you will know how shy and introverted I am NOT!!
The beginning of this year had me doing a lot of promo stuff and not enough carving so I have to make up for lost time...

Here are some pics of a "Beatnik" gear shift that was commissioned by one of the Beatniks Car Club - I am sure you all know who they are. This project was a bit of a challenge as all skulls are but I needed to humanise the skull to give him "Koolsville attitude". The last few shots were taken by my mate Pete Walker (Pix by Pete) thanks Peter you know how to make my pieces pop!

Well I believe you. What sort of piece was it?

Very Kool shifter - you nailed that expression on the mouth/lips!

No time for record-keeping pics? blasphemy. You owe it to yourself..


Keep that Beat going Marcus!

Excellent shifter knob!! I have been playing around with a skull as well. Thanks for the reference. It sucks when you don't get a chance to photo your work - I have a hard time with that as well. Keep choppin.
