Got an email today from Kevin and here is what he has to say .Very happy to hear back
from him and now I know why it took so long for him to get back with me.

Hi Billy,

Thank you very much for your message, and please forgive my not being able to get back to you sooner. This month I received a LOT of inquiries about the Hawaiian Eye Mug, which isn't too surprising as we all had hoped it would be released by now. I'm happy to say it's still happening, but had to be delayed while Jody and I accepted more freelance work this year. We lost a huge amount of money when one of the major companies we worked for last year filed for bankruptcy and simply refused to pay us for completed services. Unfortunately, out of necessity, we put all smaller personal projects - including the H.E. Mug - on the back burner while we took care of business.

Currently we are in the middle of moving our little studio to a bigger and more permanent space. Once settled, we'll kick final production of the H.E Mug and several other designs into high gear. Hopefully we haven't lost our audience's attention by then! The mugs are a personal project for me, something I had begun on the side in my spare time.

Tiki Kiliki distributed the Hukilau mug, which was completely pre-sold before the edition was ready. I think it came as a surprise to her! She's already asked me to do a new Hukilau piece with Munktiki for 2010.

Thanks again for taking the time to write. I really appreciate it. As soon as I have news of release dates, I'll let out the word. The H.E. mug is a top priority for me.

Best!
Kevin


So there you have it directly from the source.

Damn, that's just cruel to see it there. Especially given the devil of a time they had getting the book out. WANT!

We got the Hawaiian Eye (home made) series off Amazon. It's really fun with music playing in the Shell Bar. We need one of these mugs. Wendy

Bump Bump Bump thanks Surf1961

Aloha,

Is there any more news about the release of the Hawaiian Eye Mug? I can't wait to get my hands on one of these - if they ever end up making them!

Thanks

Talked to Kevin Kidney last night at Marie Palooza event.The reason for such a delay is all
the projects he has been working on both foreign and domestic .He assured me this tiki mug
will come to fruition soon.
