Hi Buzzy, it was great to see you and Christina at Oasis. We have framed and hung your pinup in our Buzzy Bedroom. I would be so sad if you didn't do these each year. Wendy


Entering the room with all the pinups of Buzzy.



Closer.


Hot!

That room looks better every year.

Before I do my Oasis summary post, let me clear the docket of the pre and non Oasis update stuff

Here is the "now they are stained in all kinds of pretty colors" picture of the last run of pieces


and the follow up two toned finishes shot:


I did a bunch of abalone inlays on the giant Hei tikis, and the rough draft carving got some sea snail shells for eyes

He's got this freaky wired beady eye vibe.



Brand new crap:

I took last week off for my annual post oasis break. Monday evening I was back at it, and drew this one out:

A couple lovely evening hours later and I had most of it blocked out

Here he is now, ready to be done this afternoon:

maybe 4.5 feet tall.

Warm and sunny day, happy to be back to work...
Buzzy Out!

Today's sunset:


I finished carving the Moai right as the day ended:



He'll have a dark stain

Buzzy, I was admiring last night's sunset and bemoaning the fact that I don't see enough Buzzy Sunsets - and here it is!
Good to see you at Oasis, always good looking art.

Yeah. This last week or so I got real sick and I've had take it easy a bit. But before then, I was still going full steam ahead...

From where I left off last update post:

I finished the Moai special request


Here's the only picture I have of it with finish:


I made a lot of these cocojoes ripoffs too:

I like cocojoes so much, I became cocojoes! Well, at least the scummy pirate ripoff version of cocojoes.

A lot more router work done as well. Most of it for the International Tiki Marketplace. Here's some random stuff I had for the September gathering, some old, some new:











I had so much fun doing the special request Moai, that I carved another just like it for the Don's show a couple weeks back



Since I didn't suffer any ill effects by accepting a commission for the first time since 2010, I did another one for a handful of small Moais:


No job too small!

then I took another request for a couple pieces with the Inter Islands resorts logo:


The novelty of taking commissions and repeating the same thing over and over hadn't worn off yet, so I did another special request for a Happy Tang guy 2.0:

The customer was kind of a hassle to deal with, so I sold it at the last Don's show without telling her. I'm glad I did it because it ended going to a better home anyway. That's what you get for being a pain in the ass, hassle customer!

I got a new kindle fire HD tablet that I can hook up to my new tv, so I go on Netflix and watch tv series I missed the first time aired. I started with all the breaking bad episodes, then moved on to Sons of Anarchy. I was feeling guilty spending way too much downtime watching tv, so I started some hookknife practice while tv viewing:


Was going for a more tikimod than traditional look with these

Somehow I missed taking pictures of the router pieces I did for the last Don's sale. They were just 10 or so catalog repeats anyway...

In between all that, I did another commission for a repeat design . Version 3.0 of the big eye guy:


It's been finished since that picture was taken. Supposed to deliver it last week, but being sick got in the way of that.

and finally...

This month started off with some rough draft paddle pieces:


Then I got real sick and had to stop working for a bit.

In case any of you missed it, I did another publicity photo for Tiki Oasis this year:

Man these were a popular item!

I think that's all the tiki stuff.
Buzzy Out!

Visited the Buzz Shack at the International Tiki Marketplace today and it was so dang dark in there I kept tripping on puffer fish lamps and knocking over Buzzy's hand carved chess set. I lost the white queen twice, sorry!

All the Buzz Merch was a lot bigger in person, those routered Marquesan plaques are BIG, with a great antique stain job. Nice work. (If this is what Buzzy turns out when he's sick, what does he carve when he's WELL?!?!?!)
