oh the suffering you must endure for your art. walk to that horrid beach, with all that sun in your eyes and that white sand between your toes only to stare at the blue water. i truly feel for you

now this is a beach i have to luxuriate in here in texas


it's usually a tad bit less rough, but hey we had a little windstorm that day. that's a good curl for galveston too.

Hey thanks guys,
BD, yeah it was a really horrible day and the water was all warm too,
I love how you turned one of those tikis into a light post,

I have been feeling really quite creative lately, been drawing, painting, carving, and constructing a new "theme environment in my room"... the best motivation now to keep carving is that this dickhead that shares my house absolutely hates me carving on the deck although my other housemates love to watch what i am creating.. so now i plan to carve as much as possible.. will keep you all up to date

Have actually spent a lot free nights and days off carving etc while everyone else is at the staff bar getting smashed which as most of you know, can be hard for me to say no to, but I don't wanna waste the opportunity to utilise the tranquility and inspiration that comes from living on a beautiful island, Clydesdale is a dick....lol

Awesome stuff my friend and Benzart is right. Mo deeper, mo better ! And those drawings . Who knew you had any talent besides scraping bad paint jobs off old tikis . Now all you have to do is carve a balsa wood raft and get yo ass back here . Great work !

Thanks Matt,
Now that I think about it you are right, I will now re-think my artistic direction.

Man Trav, you ARE Showing a LOT of creative ability here, WOW, I Love the drawings, that lonley tiki by the hut is really cool and the Moai trying to row their canoe while holding the oar incorrectly should be Fun to watch but I LOVE that piece. You can hang it on MY Wall any day! The flower is way cool too.
Who knew you had it in'ya?
