Thanks nicework. I've been diggin your work as well. I'm up at 3:45 am to be at work by 5am. I work 10 hour days now. I wish I had more time in a day to carve. I'm pushing forward though.I'll be knockin out more here real soon. Committing to a booth at a Polynesian Festival in March has me pumped. Keep up the good work. Your experience as an ice carver shows in your work. I liked the recent one with the frog. That waz tha shiznit!

I've been busy spendin time at the grind, building a website, creating a fb page, blogging and hustling to promote Tiki Republic. That didn't keep me from viewing what you guys have been up to though. It also didn't keep me from carvin. I've tried to expand my skills by carving in different styles.


Side shot of a Marquesan. I put down the chainsaw and picked up the chisels for this one. Thanks for the influence 4WDtiki.



Front shot of the Marq.



This was from looking at Doug Hornes work too much.



A quick freestyle retro.


Easter Isle.



Retro.



First attempt at a Marquesan bust.



I didn't like the eyes and the mouth was too wide. I studied images and tried again with the Marq up top.



This was just freestyle. Reminds me of what a Chihuahua would look like if it was a tiki, lol.



Side shot to show the chisel detail.

Mahalo y'all.

Big T, I just went through all your pages and was very impressed. There are a lot ideas there that I have in my head. I have a stash of palms that I'll be carving into full body Hawaiian and Marqs similar to what you've done but on a larger scale.
Work does get in my way but I get a lot of energy carvin so I organize my time better in order to do both.

After spending time away working on designing the website, blog, designing the Tiki Republic mug and other stuff I decided to get back to what started it all.

A palm tree had gotten too tall but more importantly the roots had started to crack the pool. They owners had that bad boy cut down but told the trimmer to leave 8 feet.


They then contacted me and wanted to know if I could carve an 8 foot Easter Island moai on site. I checked it and even though it was about 8 inches off the back wall I was all in.


I was in a zone and this was about 3 hours later.




When it was finally done they named it "Dumb Dumb".

I haven't been posting on TC because I got super busy designing my own site Tiki Republic, fb page, carvin, kickin out a tiki mug... I also work for a major airline and been jumpin globally. Check out the tiki bar that I ran across in Italy. It's in my blog page at Tiki Republic.
Ran into Cy at Tiki Oasis this year and he told me to post more pics so here it goes. Oh yeah, I have about 50 pics of Tiki Oasis 2016 on my fb page Tiki Republic by Pierre Mosley. I would post them on TC but it would take too long to repost them all here. Enjoy.

Some of the retro tikis that I carved for Oasis this year.


It's not 115 degrees outside anymore. Arizona summers are a biatch for carvers! It's down to 100 this week so got some carvin in. Just finished this Marquesan Fertility God.


Tiki photbomb!


As always, mahalo.
