Will, you hit the nail on the head, I actually feel bad about separating these two unfortunate siblings but we all must eventually fly the coop and adjust. Thanks Atomic, I'm happy to see you back and carving cool stuff again. I have been putting things together for the Tiki Kon event Wendy, just a few more details to complete. The best of compliments amate, I always think my best one will be my next. MadDog my first and obvious choice would have been a shark, but decided to try and make one bad-assed fourspot butterfly fish instead.

Always appreciate the kind thoughts H10. The last two weekends were spent a sellin' as I attended Tiki Kon in Vancouver USA, just across the I5 bridge from me and then the local Gresham Artwalk which is not tiki but still a hoot.
Tiki Kon is the first event I have done indoors but having electricity was cool. I did very well and enjoyed meeting smooth tiki artists Bosco and Big Toe.

I did better than expected at the Gresham, Oregon event last week and hed fun with the mixed crowd.

I took some casualties at the Gresham event when I clipped "Lucy" with my umbrella while setting up. She will begin life as a new piece soon.

I completed "Margie" to travel with me to Tiki Oasis next month.




Also will complete Makemake before the road trip to San Diego.



I will add green highlights here and there to compliment Tiki Skips float and be done.

Cy,
You must be doing something illegal or immoral.
You're having too much fun.

Great stuff Cy! Sorry to hear about Lucy... can't you just glue her back together? I really like the MakeMake one.

And Hang10... too funny! I guess he is the Tikinator.

Thanks Jeff, when I did the Tiki Kon event and was supplied with electricity I realized how many carvings I had that are lit up and ran out of plugs on my power strip. So many people commented on the lights that I would recommend you try some and see what happens. Will, nothing immoral going on and one of my bad habits is legal in Washington state so that is close enough for me. I do have fun carving like most of us do. Nice production value Jon, how do you find that stuff? Jesse, Lucy shattered in many pieces, some small and I did not think I could glue and dowel it back together and still have it strong enough to sell in good conscience. I am going to cut her at the waist and have her popping out the top of another piece. Maybe it will turn out better?

Thanks MadDog for always weighing in with positive comments and will be seeing you shortly for the Oasis event. Gracias TS, I am enjoying my summer to it's maximum potential. Makemake is donedone (almostalmost.)



I thought that just a plain green light bulb in the top section would be fine but it looked too plain. When I brought it to Tiki Kon as an unfinished project I noticed how many people looked inside the top and decided that this portion needed to be better finished. A distress call to TikiSkip for another green float was answered and I should have it in time for Tiki Oasis.

I used my wife's kiln to make a glass eye for the fish.


Me and my van will be loaded on Tuesday and will be heading out Wednesday for San Diego. My goal is to visit a pal of mine in Huntington Beach area mid day on Thursday as well as Bamboo Ben's hut and then be at the Bali Hai for the Creepxotica show at 9.
