The Sept. 2011 Chop was a brilliant success! Gathered friends...some new, some old, shared art and creating for an afternoon.

Okay TC, This right here...this is what it is all about!

...and this too! The FOOD! Shown below is: Mieko's Mom Diane - she is the Chop's Flagship right there! - we all follow the food.

Mieko's Pop - Bill (the Man!)

Mieko and her Mom - Mieko is hands down the kindest, most giving person in Tiki.

This Chop was in part a celebration for a pair old friends who are moving on to enjoy life on the island of Kauai. We will miss you Bill and Lennie! We look forward to that Chop you will be having in Kauai. We will all be there!

check out Bill's mad skills

You all should pick one of these up before Bill splits

The talented Lennie:

Look for Bill's ride in Kauai...rock jumping on Kauai?...maybe?

My ride

Master Mad Dog Mike was there! Mike, brother, how did I only get 1 shot of you??

Some new friends - Jason Lee & Michele

Michele brought some reference materials along...

She draws like a dream.

Jason Lee is quite a carver!

Karrol and Chloe fought traffic to make the long trip down - you two are awesome!

Mr. Matt Reese showed up to show us his tattoos.

he can make the ass shake on this arm babe with a little flexing.

Dav Lozeau showed up to put a smack down on this monster log.

Sir B is always a joy to watch! He is without a doubt, the master of precision!

And I...I showed up at noon to the fun late, but I made it.

Babalu's Traveling Road Show:

I had to leave at about 3:00 pm so I was only able to get two of the three cannibals started that I want to stack up here. Time for some fine tuning and to add the third figure-

Scott from the Skinny Dog Crew showed up right as I was leaving...sorry I didn't get a shot of him...

I called Bowana this morning, and he told me that the Chop went on well into the night...I guess a Porter tribute dude showed up to play for them...

...and the evening was topped off with a ginormous fireworks disply!! How cool is that!

Thanks for hosting, Mieko! And everyone who brought yummy food!
Really nice seeing everyone, and to meet Jason and Michelle. Hope you'll be regulars from now on!
Yes Babalu, there was a second wind with more carving and more eating later in the day. Twice the fun!
Best of luck, Bill and Lennie!
Any more pictures?!


That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Loved the photos. I feel like I was there - only I was here. I worked on ceramics the whole day while you were all together having the best kind of party. Living down south sure has its benefits. Hello friends, Wendy

Thanks to Mieko for hosting, it was so great to have some creative time with some of my favorite people! Good to see the SD crew and meet some new friends too. Lennie and Bill, you'll be missed, but I know you'll be back for visits and now I have someone to visit when I go to the Islands!
