Thank you, there is so much inspiration here at Tiki Central! So many great artists, it's almost ridiculous.

I promised my wife I wouldn't let this become more than a healthy obsession, but have already been dubbed the "crazy tiki guy" by the neighborhood kids.

Here's some progress on the upper body today. Not sure what's up with the rotation with the images (just turn your monitor on its side)





Hopefully I can get into the legs tomorrow and start finishing this one up!!

Thanks! I'm digging this one too.

I'm trying to get it ready for a local art show at the end of the month. I got an honorable mention last year for the one with the 4 skulls, but hoping to do better this year with the new one.
