Hey, everyone- I've been following these forums for a while, and only now realized that I've yet to post anything of my own! I've been working on a retro tiki theme for my living room over the past few weeks, something I'm sure you can all relate to, and into about my third coating of wood stain I realized I could post it here, along with some of my character design and illustration work. So, yes- enjoy!

First off, some first draft designs for Pele and Poliahu; Pele's going to be changed a lot, but I'm posting her anyway:


Next a Papua New Guinea-inspired character, definitely drawing from some tiki proportions and aesthetics:


Finally, for my living room, some cardboard and harpie tikis made from furniture boxes:


...and a swithplate for my lights which I woodburned and stained myself:


I want to do tons more tiki work in the future, so here's hoping this is the first of many art dumps!
Here's my site if you want to see more of my work, though not entirely tiki:

I agree with Grog here. Not that I couldn't. Your stuff is amazing. Sure beats the hell out of mine. I rely too much on rendering and Tons of details in my own work, and yours seems to Suggest the details...something I can't do.

Awesome, can't wait to see more.

Aloha and wow! I really like your Pele! the way you made the hair (at least to me) look like it could be a volcano (that or I am hungover) is really fantastic! The tattoos are great too!

Big aloha!

I love it all but I think I like the cardboard Tikis best.

I've sold ceramic tile coasters on Cafepress before and have been extremely impressed with the quality of the final product, so I was thinking of extending my tiles into the tiki realm... Not to mention the fact that it means I'd have tiles to match my decor!

Anywho, here's the first of at least four designs- I wanted to gauge whether or not people would be interested in such things if reasonably priced. And, I do promise, at least one of them will have a pin-up girl.

Great stuff - I also loved the Mesoamerican characters and (I think?) Pacific Northwest inspired animals on your site too...and the tapirs!
