Thanks again to everyone for having a look at this thread and all the positive feedback. It is really motivating. I'm working on some new things (painting and carving) but in the meantime here are a couple of pieces from earlier last year.

The first is a mounted resin cast in a handmade frame. It is the same character I use in some of my paintings and this little resin one predates those. There is also a full body version which I have given all away as fridge magnets. I will post him when I make some more. He started as my own personal version of a Coco Joe's type souvenir.


This one is not Tiki but it may appeal to some of you. The devil head is cast resin painted with acrylic and the background is acrylic on masonite. The box is stained maple. I call it" Behave Yourself". I think I might add a little banner that says behave yourself to the top or bottom. The devil head I sculpted with Chavant plastecine clay. The theme is tongue in cheek. I didn't become born again overnight or anything.

And another angle.



Thanks again, more on the way. I'm working really long hours right now so no promises when.

Jeepers! That looks like one of the things that used to pop up & scare the hell outa people in the old carnival fun houses.

The whole effect is muy carnivalesque. I love it.

Kctiki- Yeah it does have an old timey carnival feel to it. I think by adding the banner it will look like an old midway poster or something. Glad you find it scary.

Aloha, it's been a while but here is the latest offering hot off the easel. Size is 8x10 and I call it "Wrong turn at La Paz."
It was influenced by a couple of books I was reading on the Amazon as well as W. Burroughs "Yage Letter's."
Plus, I just like shrunken heads. Too many trips to Ripley's museum as a kid I guess.


It looks really washed out so I will try later under better light. Thanks for poppin' in.

I'm always a fan of the tsantsa art, so of course i dig the last painting, but that mixed media piece,"behave yourself" is slammin'. Great stuff.

Sam, Freddie, Tipsy and Swampfire-thanks so much for your kind words.
Tipsy- yes I think subconsciously that shrunken head did take a Don Knotts like form.
That might have something to do with having watched "The Love God" about 20 times in the last 3 years. Don Knott's is my
muse. I'll admit it.

I started working on a new piece over the last week. Here are some progress shots.
Some favourite mugs scattered about for reference. The girl is based on a porceline wahine bust from my collection.
See her in the picture above.

and finally tonights labours.


Still along way to go but it's only an 8x10 canvas. Thanks for looking, I will post more as I make progress.
