Hey guys, just getting warmed up here in the forum. I do a lot in watercolor, very neotraditional tattoo style, but FOR THE LOVE OF RUM I thought I'd post a few theme-appropriate works... first up: a few pattern tile pieces I had printed as fabric for an aloha shirt, but can also be wallpaper/wrapping paper on SPOONFLOWER.com

Thx all for the kind words, always nice to see if "the audience gets the gag"; and extra nice to get positive vibes to know I'm doing the genre justice...

You've created a style unlike anyone else's and that's really hard to accomplish. I think you've found your niche in the tiki world.

Horror in Clay aka Jonathan Chaffin did a 3D printer mug that was used to make the mold to cast ceramic mugs. The printer however made many undercut areas that had to be dealt with before casting.

Yeah, im pretty sure thats how mine got made (it was all done through shapeways.com, and their guidelines were very strict in order to flag the mugs as 'printable' in porcelain,i just created the 3d model).
