Almost like he was waiting for you to get all your tours in before signing out. Too bad I couldn't make any of them, but you've kept his spirit alive.

Getting to see his work at IMP on your tour in August was amazing!

Rest in Peace. Thanks, Phil for introducing me to Mr. Brownlee's art. Truly a tiki pioneer. I think about all the times I've been to IMP and it wasn't until the last time that I actually realized all of the history and beauty it held. I guess we look at things with different eyes as we grow older. I try so hard to show my kids the beauty that exists around them but sometimes they just can't see it. I had lived in Hawaii in the 60's and 70's but never experienced the IMP in its heyday. I was never interested when I was a kid. Now it is gone forever and I will miss it very much. Although some folks think of it as a tourist trap (I did for decades), it has some significant historical value of what Hawaii was like in the middle of the last century. No, its not authentic but it is still a part of our past. Congratulations on your wedding, Phil. May you live long and prosper...

Wow, that is some great stuff. There should be a thread here dedicated to these old school carvers and their works. And if there is, oops sorry.
