thanks guys! always good to be back.
Hey Savage Daddy, thanks for the welcome and the wondering while i was aloof. i may wander off every year, but i'll always make it back. i tried going to your website yesterday but my computer couldn't handle it. i'll try today without so many tabs open. mahalo nui for all your cool support!
laojia- thanks a lot! that little one will be finished this weekend.
Benz my man! today i will be tackling your thread, as i know i'll need a lot of time to catch up on it all. thanks very much for all! the shop is coming along pretty well. the over-working i felt was in the details. having too much of it in too small an area. being a lover of detail, it's always been one of my down falls at first in any medium. the eyes of the marq-type i wish i had left smooth. the angles and surfaces were really nice-as soon as i made the first etchings on one, i knew i'd gone too far. no mistakes, though- only new options. with the hei type, i just created more detail than i was ready for on a small piece. oh-well, that's what practice is for- right? they'll be fine when they're done. we're doing good, 1st grade's almost over already. Lexine hangs here at the shop with me sometimes, but i still can't get her to finish any tattoos for me yet!! talk with you soon,
i took some pics today of two wood pieces half-done -the kava bowl and the tangy type i started last tuesday. i'll post them in a bit. cheers!
