2'5" tall and made from a sabal palm just waiting to apply the stain and get him finished....
The idea came from staring at one of Dougs "Swamp Fire" beer monkeys and adding a little of Sam Gambinos's fez and personality. Then playing with his Crazy Al toes and hands. I can't wait to stain this guy and say done.

It's monkey with a fez, it doesn't get anymore tiki than that. Nice carving and nicely Photoshopped picture.

Great carve!

I would love to see the fez covered in leopard fabric with a tassle after you stain him ...just to give it that added something and to make his fez stand out. But that is only my opinion!

Very nice indeed, but he needs to be posted in the carving area.

This guy was great to see in person, and I really hope you don't lose the pinkys on his shaka hands.

SWEET! You can't go wrong with a monkey wearing a red fez & vest. I didn't want to say anything but I was afraid you would stain him all brown

Water basted stains and Pasche VL3 airbrush.... I mix a little of india ink into the blacks also to get the blacks ultra deep. That is the secret...

I used to airbrush at the Sawgrass Mills Mall for the first 5 years that it was open. Some of my airbrush pieces are on my Deviant Art page.

Very nice work, but a might defensive there PalmCity. I don't think the NAACP trolls TC much.

But I noticed it's phrased in a derogatory way in your post title. You might want to change it to "It's colored now".

Keep up the great work.
