It's been a long while since i posted anything here. Guess it's about time i shared my efforts.
I must try my hand again at the full body, but have been enjoying these creations.
The row of faces i intended to be shifter knobs, although stitchface might get his stitches pulled out with regular use. Not sure what i'll do with him.
My latest and favorite is the big one (bonenose). As much as i'd like to keep him, i'm gonna put a tag on him and see if he sells this weekend at an event i run called Kustom Kulture Weekend. Even if he doesn't sell he can enjoy the scene and soak up the cool music.
Have also dabbled with bone. Great fun to work with (despite the smell)
Enjoy.

Your work has impressive detail.

Very cool small work!! Like the shrunken head and the cyclop, the pins bellow the head is perfect to planting on a cake!
Which kind of wood use you? Australia is full of nice wood...(lace sheoak, red mallee,...)
And the skull-eye: terrific!!!

I think the one with the skull eyeballs is just too cool for words.

Aloha!

Hey everyone, thanks sincerely for the kind words. Glad you like em.

Featherstone, I donít have a website or anything like that for selling my gear, although I will probably try and get a myspace site set up or something to show some of my pieces. If thereís something you like, perhaps drop me a PM and will see what we can do.
Most of the wood I use is just what I pick up on the side of the road, when people dump their tree prunings. Iíve really got no idea what most of the wood is.

The big guy was a donated tree pruning from an Australian Sugar Gum (so Iím told).
Doesnít seem to have split any more since completion, which is good. Itís got about 5 coats of oil on it for protection too.

Here's one i've just completed. Sure the one eye theme is more monster than tiki, but he was fun to do. Didn't really want to stitch his lips at first, but once i started on the eye i realised there wasn't much room left for a mouth, so i improvised.
His eye glows in the dark too and has a green emerald colour rhinestone deep inside the cats eye pupil. Very hard to see in the photos.
One-Eye is also from that same Sugar Gum, stained and oiled.

Enjoy

AUSIE, AUSIE, AUSIE !... good to see other Skipys on T.C. Kick ass carvings man, I agree, your big ones are awsome. The sceine is gettin' stronger down here, Perth now has two venues with Tiki style to drink at
De Villes pad & Hula Bula Bar. I went to DeVilles last week and it was awsome, had a Horny Devil cocktail in a devils head mug which I got to keep, Pics soon.
