Your work is awesome. I love the perspectives you've used in these last two pieces, and the use of colour. Sweet

Thanks, folks. TC'ers are the best.

I guess I won't be posting much new stuff for awhile. I have a tough commission I'm doing as a gift and can't post pics or the receivee will see 'em. After that, it's mostly prep for the Hukilau. I have so much to do I'm having to stop taking commissions for a good while.

My extra-special thanks to the terrific folks I've been working with, they've stretched me beyond what my usual lack of motivation would accomplish, and opened my eyes.

Robb

Sneakytiki - you have a hell of a pad, esp. for Idaho!

Little lost tiki - thanks a ton, it took longer than I normally allot, but the velvet is my master, and it told me what IT wanted... as always.

Wow, Sneaky and Robb, I have the same taste in furniture as y'all...if only being a modernist was affordable in Los Angeles

I have an original 60's Stereo Egg Chair, some Danish teak stuff, and other neat-o Mid Century Modern furnishings. I love the blend of Tiki and Mid Century Modern.

Robb, have you found a supplier of worthy velvet yet?

Who is the cheapest you've found? I need sacrificial velvet as well.

Thanx for your help, and for keeping the tradition alive!

These would look good on the side of your black '72 Chevy van or maybe on the Continental spare tire cover for your PT Cruiser

Robb,
quick question.....
Do you sketch ot the design on the velvet first?
With a canvas, it's easy-just use a water-soluble pencil or crayon and wipe it away afterwards.....
I bet you just go for it and it turns out marvellous.....

msteeln: I think I'm going to buy from Velvets Etc. in New York. I use the same velvets for tests, not cheaper stuff, so I get the same results.

MadDogMike: I've got a PT Cruiser, I should do something with it.

little lost tiki: I sketch tougher things on the velvet, and improvise others.

Thanks for the questions and comments... has anybody done tests they can show here?
