Hi everyone,
new to this site and just thought I would say G'day to you all from here in Australia!
I have just got a renewed love of anything tiki with my first tiki mug arriving the other day, hopefully it will be a long love affair.
I have include a couple of pics I have airbrushed on canvas of my boys, they watch over me when I'm home.
I hope I haven't offended anyone with the moko designs,pleas tell me if I have. I painted them from my head not trying to copy any particular style.
cheers guys, enjoy!

Welcome to Tiki Central BadAss. That's a nice looking pair, I could see them mounted as guardians on either side of a door to keep people with bad mana out of the Tiki Bar How big are they?

very nice badass.

mate, i'm interested where-abouts on the whitsundays?

i only ask 'cause one time i took a wander up over the
radio hill north of shute harbour and found this wicked grass
shack in a secluded little cove on the other side, didn't
have a camera at the time, but it was just beautiful.
i collected some coral on the beach from there and recently
used some to make a little reef diorama for my lounge.
have ya been over there? keen to know if the shack is still
there. hope i'm not derailin' your thread too much.

Hi Komohana, I am in Airlie Beach, I have a workshop at Cannonvale.
I know the beach you are talking about, you can climb over mount roper to get there. I dont recall seeing a shack last time I was there but parks and wildlife had built a loo there so maybe they pulled it down.

thanks mate, yeah it was quite a few years ago they must've torn it down,
seemed to be on private property and fairly well built...bummer.

keep posting your awesome airbrush work, very very nice!

my first attempt at carving a tiki, he's carved out of white cedar and he is approx 33 inches
He is carved with a variety of flat chisels and finished off with the sanding disc on my dremel.
I still have to burn the tattoos in and stain him when I get some more cash.
