Well this guy was inspired by the big Tiki Bob show, but it looks like I won't be able to clone him in time... Anyway, I always thought of Tiki Bob as a Hirschfeld-esc design so I thought I'd try to make a TB mug of my favorite Bob with my attempt at adding a little Al.. My apologies to any and all offended. Here's my Tiki Bob, Hollywood..

What are the chances of seeing a clear shot of that Moon disc with the Clarence Catallo '32 Ford on it? Looks VERY cool from what I can see of it!

Mahalo MDM and ebtiki, it looks like I'm late for the party, but I am having fun. I got pulled into work pretty hard core the last couple weeks and I haven't been able to get this thing done for the show (It's still is too wet to cast!)

Lukeulele, that was a gift I got years ago, I didn't do it it was done by Itchy and signed by George. I'm a big fan of the A Bros and Early Barris.

Big Kahuna, been into old cars my entire life. I'm more kustom than rod, but I love them both.

Aewesome sculpt, Aaron!

If you check out Alec Yuill Thornton's art, the creator of the Tiki Bob design, you are right, his cartoons definitely have a Hirschfield kind of style to them.

Wow mahalos for the encouragement, it's good to know there are others out there that are on the same page..

Grog, mahalo for the name of the artist. I love finding out more info on these type of artists. They rarely got credit, but to me they tend to be just as influential as the big guys...

Wendy, you're too kind, I really dig your Bob's too. And there is no way I can keep up with your pace, I haven't even finished this one!!!

Zerostreet, we're on the same page here.. That was the first thing I thought, how can you have a Bob and not a Bing?? I plan to do a Bing, (I'm a big fan of these guys) call the set Road to Bali Ha'i

Lukeulele, here's a closer pic of the moon cap...
