I was going to ask what happened and who this Coe guy is... but I guess in this case ignorance is bliss. Have you painted the two new 3D prints yet Gene? I was wondering how they turned out? Very curious about the larger one in particular. I just watched "Hell's Half Acre" for the first time, great little noir flick, I saw at the end when the bad guy gets gunned down in front of a tourist store in Honolulu something in the window that kinda reminded me of the spirit of your work.
See the little carved coconut face in the right side of the window? Your work actually looks more tiki than that, but it to me has that same sort of 50's/60's surf tourist feel if you know what I mean? Stuff that was made for the masses of tourists, but still had a bit of unique island charm. That's the sort of thing your work reminds me of, and to me that is not a bad thing at all, I view a lot of the Coco Joe's keychains and whatnots in the same light as well.
