Aloha everybody! Well, here it is just over a month (or I should say ONLY a little over a month and I've gotten my act together enough to post again... actually, I feel like I'm busier than ever, and I have LOTS of pieces in the works simultaneously... if I don't get posting, I'll get even farther behind... post-wise, that is.
Mahalos for all the kind words...
Thanks Kinny, YOU sir are an inspiration!
Mike, I've been having a blast with ceramics! (as long as the blasts don't happen inside the kiln, I'm good) I'm preparing to revisit the birdman bowl concept soon!
Zerostreet, the black paper is fun! You should give it a try, it's very rewarding!
SandraDee, glad the three of you liked my efforts!
Hey Big Kahuna... I certainly don't get a much sleep as I should... sometimes it's hard to shut off my brain and get some shut eye!

Bowl by Eric October.
Painting on the wall by little lost tiki. Painting on the birds by ME!
Hi Eric, after we got home with your terrific bowl I couldn't resist making it a closer match to Kenny's painting. I hope that's OK with you that we now have a collaboration! Cheers, Wendy

OK, this at-least-once-a-month-post thing seems to be quite beyond my capacity...

I broke my thread by adding too much work, so had to move this update to a new post... so, with out further aku aku ado... here's about half a year's worth of work!
(I also included the work from my last post, since the oldest pieces from this new post were completed about the same time, around last year's Tiki Oasis.
Hope you enjoy!

Holy Crap Eric, where do I start?
Polly Tiki Bird, Shrunken Head Santas, Cannibal Cookies -
UliUli, Lei Bowl, Stockton Islander building, DukDuk Plates - very cool
The bamboo roof frame behind one of the Bahooka parrots makes it look like a rabbit, I thought maybe it was a collab with Babalu
Something very cool about the Islander Sign Tall mug that I can't quit put my finger on. The low relief carving makes a subtle but distinctive image.
Missed you guys at Mojave Oasis

Holy Mackerel! There's a lot of work there GROG's never seen. It all looks great. You've really gone to town with those black paper drawings. GROG gotta take after you and quit doing the molded ceramics, and just start doing everything by hand. (The sculpting is the most fun part for GROG anyway.) Keep it up. That's a lotta art, and you're only getting better the more you do. You've grown SO MUCH since you first started doing tiki art.
GROG miss Tiki-Kate
