Not sure what's up next. I've got a bunch of sketches and prepped logs. Unfortunately I've got a bunch of stitches in my shoulder and will probably be next week before I can start choppin.

Decisions, decisions, decisions!

Nice to see the progress shots of your Rapid progression to being an excellent tiki carver. I Especially Loved the dog in this one and having the ball was a Nice touch.

Your Last one is the best by Far. Keep up the great work and now it's time for you to delve into the world of the authentic Classic tikis which you can find photos anywhere. Look for Ku, Kane, Lono and pieces like that and take the basic foundation and add your own spin to them.,
Have FUN!

Thanks for the compliments and suggestions!

Benzart - I'll definitely start looking into the more traditional carvings (so far I've just let my hands guide me). I could tell you were an artist and teacher before I checked out your profile. I always appreciate a critical eye, helps keep me honest!

This is one I've been working on, however it's definitely been slow progress through the holidays:

I've been really busy with the day job here lately, but here is a piece I've been working on. It's about 7 feet tall.





I also carved a Moai recently, but don't have a picture. I'll see if I can get one from its to home.

I really like the cannibal tiki with the heads on a pole. Awesome.
