Great velvet prints again.
Did I tell you I framed your velvet print with golden frame, it looks fantastic, really lighting up the image. I love it.

Gecko,

Those mugs are great, but how can I get one of your carvings? Your pieces are amazing! Really great. I got that "whoosh" feeling you get when you see great art, that makes you think and feel at the same time, so that they almost cancel each other out. Very nice...and no, I'm not high right now.

MUST HAVE THAT MUG...

Unbelievable stuff, Gecko. I'm vacationing in Maui this November. Can you hook up a fellow TC brah with some local carving wood? I want to make a real authentic hawaiian tiki with some magical hawaiian tiki wood. But I'm hoping I can find some over there that's not at Haole prices!

Do you have a supplier? Or do you just head off into the jungle with an axe & get your own?

Wish I was going to Oahu, I'd definitely stop by to check out your stuff. I'm tempted to make a side trip.

Mahalo, my friend, and thanks for the eye candy!

Aaron

I haven't had da chance to post any carvings lately because of being busy but I have some spare time today. Here's one that was just ordered. Drum style bottom Tangaroa.












I'll post others later that I've done last month. Just kinda been busy and it takes time to post pics.

Gecko, aside from the fact that it's a great carving, I like the add on's. Another element to admire (or not). Good stuff.

By the way, your paintings are killer, too! Man, oh man.

Gecko, everything you make man is great. love the drum (hollow part) of your tikis. as Chikitiki said you have that style down perfectly. I like the color of him looks kind of dark but when you showed a close up of the back of his head it was a nice deep brown, always impressive, can't wait to see what else youv done.

Howzit peeps, here's 2 large 36X60 velvets uncle Leo did. While he was doing some of his new designs and taking care oforders, I asked him to do a couple of classics. The first one is after one of Leeteg's most famous paintings(Hina Rapa)that was also used by the Chi Chi bar in Palm Springs.





Can you guess the second? The peopo In Florida should get this one. With Flounder doing all these great vintage mug paintings I thought it would be nice to do some vintage wahine paintings from the restaurants as well.




tanks fo da props braddahs on da Tangaroa. One of my fave's to carve. Chiki da wood is coconut palm. Da holes come from da spikes in da shoes of da local tree climbers so they can climb up to cut down coconuts so they don't fall on peopoz head in Waikiki ya. Also from birds.

aloha
