Thanks for commenting hiltiki, it is inspiring! After carving deeper into that one I realized it is still pretty damp in the middle so will have to let it dry and crack a bit longer before painting. It is the first piece of birch that I have done, so did not know how much water this wood actually retains. Hopefully it will be ready for Tiki Oasis come August. Here is a bit of progress on "Captain Fritz."

Cy just insane stuff...seems like your always charting new territory with your themes and of course with that cool Cy vibe.

Gracias Keylo, I like to explore and am lucky to have the luxury of not having to make a living selling tikis. (I'd be living in a van by the river if I did.) Here is a quickie I did from a 12 foot cedar pole.

I will bring him to this Saturdays Tiki Kon here in Portland.

The weekend after that is another local art show that I have done the last 6 years. I have sold a total of 3 pieces in those years, but I always have a blast talking with people of all cultures and ages that know nothing about tiki.

Man oh man oh man just got caught up on your recent work,

Birch is looking stellar, and I dig all of the story Captain Fritz is telling.

Look forward to catching up in SD, and hope you have a great Tiki Kon!

Man, new stuff looks fantastic Chris! Living off carving tikis is a tough endeavor. It can be done but for me it takes the joy out of it. I love taking my time and getting a piece right where I like it. Keep em comin Chris!!

Thanks for the comments fellow tikiphiles, I've got a few progress shots for you.
I thought diet boys were a little plain so I added some trinkets to spice 'em up.

I had some green rope in the garage so that is the color that was added.

He will part of the crew that will depart with me for the Tiki Oasis event.

I liked the way the blue turned out on another tiki I did so "Birch" got his first coat this week.

Birch looks good.
There's so much going on there.
