yeah, thanks guys.

His day off during the week is Weds, so he's gonna start coming over once a week, and I told him I'd have a couple of 'em on deck to paint next time he comes.

And here's a little progress on the blue mooner...the art show is tomorrow so I gotta get him done...

Give Dean an "atta boy" for me. Nice work! Moon-tiki is also looking grand!

thanks guys...

had a great art show today...my best yet money-wise.

The blue moon beer tiki was a big hit. The blue moon guy was very stoked...I'm hoping they might commission more of them.

ok, so this promoter guy calls me and apparently he's involved in professional volleyball tournaments, and they want to do a couple of tall thin tikis for holding up a volleyball net...so I'm meeting him tomorrow at 9am to talk about that and some other stuff...

anyway, it looks like a very busy week ahead. Meetings and commissioned stuff I gotta get done...Lots to do...

ok! dropped another dead palm today & cut it up into mostly 2 to 3 footers, with the base piece cut at 6 ft (I pretty much always cut the base at 5 or 6 ft so I can make at least one big one...

wow, my hands are wringing a little bit...but I got a whole tree sectioned up & 5 of the 7 small ones cleaned, so I'm happy about that. And I still have a few of the big ones leftover from the last tree, 2 of which are already cleaned, and one already drawn out (another pineapple head). So I'm teed-up to hit a few!

ok, birthday is over, the fog is clearing, the headache is fading, and I have a lot of work to do...

I need to seriously bang out some tikis for the rest of the week...

And I'm going to build a couple of wedding arbor/alter whachamacallit thingies that people stand under during outdoor weddings. I wanna rent 'em out for weddings. I think the first one is gonna be a dolphin swirl...I also need to make a "wedding tiki"...while getting other stuff done...commissions and whatever.

so here we go...

just when the villagers thought it SAFE to return to their huts, awash in the smug self-delusion of a temporary victory, something sinister was brewing on the other side of the island...bigger, and way more gnarly than his pops...and looking for revenge....

SON OF PINEAPPLE HEAD!!!

*insert horror show screaming sound effects here*

this could get ugly....

ok, it's 1am and I've been hanging out with Kristina and kinda getting her to draw out some tikis.

The ones with the red ink are hers and the ones drawn in black are mine...

the little one is her 3rd draw out, and the bigger one is her 4th. she's getting better..



and here's a mermaid she's talked me into trying to carve...stay tuned...

These little "pineapple heads" (modified lonos?) are going to be one of my signature pieces. I've been getting a ton of positive feedback & people are stoked on 'em.

And the one with a fish is a quick cheapie for a buddy of mine...
