For us exotica fans, our hero is celebrating his 93rd Birthday today and I just wanted to wish a Happy Birthday to Mr. Martin Denny!

I feel honored that I was invited to his private party! I will be going there in a few hours. but befor I get ready to go I just wanted to share with my freinds here his Birthday gift that I droped by his house a few days ago.....yes he loved it by da way!







It is a black velvet painting of the young Mr. Denny. To da right of him he has da tiki from page 205 in da B.O.T with the approval of braddah Sven. As you see on da bottom left of the velvet is my copywrite logo stamped right below the artist's name.

That is because this is the new "Gecko'z South Seas" Artist Mr. Leo Layug. We finaly agreed to terms and are now working together
to create beautiful art on velvet like this one you see today.

Well Happy Birthday Mr. Denny!!!!

Aloha

Gecko-
that is an absolutely beautiful gift! (before I saw the CU of your signature, I thought it was a picture!) Great stuff.

I'll play his records and raise a Mai-Tai for Mr. Denny this evening in honor of his special day! Have fun tonight, you lucky guy!

Mahalo for the pix!

So we raise a glass at 7 in Cali to be synchronized.
Great stuff Gecko and the best to you in your biz.
You have a 2 ft. redwood Bosko Moai comin' in June. It's all I could get with the light weight.

Cheers

PS eh, Gecko dat pic is cherry brah!

It's about an hour to ten east coast time, so I'll join in the toast... Mr. Denny is indeed a living legend.
Also, that is one ono painting Gecko. Quite an ambitious subject and very well done.

Beautiful Pic!
Were fortunate to know and love Martin Denny.
We are also lucky to have Gecko on TC.
The best to both of you.
