I'll make this thread my place for show and tell.

Here's some stuff I've been working on.

This link is a trailer to a short film I'm making with a bunch of friends. It's low tech and home made. The file is a 2.5mb quicktime movie, so you'll need quicktime player to view.

Been doing some print making, based on my art. This is going to be made into a lavalava [man skirt] for a bike festival event I'm going to as Tikiboy.


Just for fun - a mate of mine did my some vinyl stickers as a test so, made myself a tikiracer pencil case.


This is wip, but plan to turn these suckers into shrunken head handle bar hangers.

Hope you like it, let me know.

Thought you'd might like to see some more of my work. Been a bit lax on getting stuff up, but been beavering away for the upcoming luau


Used this for an add in the London Luau Programme


Super Chop - Really pleased with this super chopped rod and tiki combo - will become a print soon



Tribal Trike - A new tee design for the summer


This is a final design that was used for the CFTalk magazine, an article on NLP and Hawaiian Ha breathing techniques


This is for a page from dice magazine about tikiracer, I've also done the front and back cover art, will show that as soon as the mag comes out [hush hush and all that]

Coming up soon, new art in the UK Pocketiki magazine [to be previewed at the Luau], new prints, new tees, a limited edition badge, new postcard...

Got me a myspace shack, so stop by and say hi.

Here's some of my latest creations, some for fun and some tikiracer


Still messing about with thermalite, getting some better results.


Spent some time with my kid playing with that "bake in the oven" clay.


A unique 1/1 print for the tikis and terrors2 show. Featuring the island terror, the brown tree snake.


Here's a new thing I'm trying out, driftiki. Driftwood with tiki carved into, but keeping the shape of the wood. This is driftiki one.

Tiki racer the lava lava was genius and the linocuts are great. How are u pressing them at home, with a small rolling pin/ roller? Linocuts are so cool. Plus u get to frame your lino-block and it makes a nice 3-d piece. If u place it next to a framed print you get a groovy mirror image dyptych.

Cheers

Those lino cuts are awesome--nice job! I really like your drift-tikis too. I missed those somehow when you originally posted them.

I've come to the conclusion that TR is a soviet-era spy robot made from parts of Lomo cameras. At some point, his duties must have taken him to the Marquesas, where he abandoned his commie ways for the island lifestyle. I'm still not sure what's brought him to the UK. Maybe just to spread the Tiki word?

Anyway, I'm totally with you about TR being able to master new media (and he's a swell guy too). It's impressive.

Wow you've been a busy chap,

A top tip for working with thermalite, when you finish carving get a hoover and suck the dust of it. The vacum removes all the dust from the bubbles in the thermalite and gives you a more lava look.
