Akua Tours the Tiki Office

 

This is my new guy, Akua.  He came from the Ashby Flea Market.

He’s a little scuffed and has clearly seen some hard times in his life, so I wanted to assure him that he would have a safe new home.  So I took him on a tour of my tiki office in progress.

Akua checks out the interior:

I hope he found everything to his liking.

Tiki Office: The Situation Has Deepened

This is scary, but work on my detached office and tiki bar has continued.  Now it has walls and a roof, even.  What have I wrought?

The exterior of the tiki office will be tasteful, betraying no hint of the tiki theming within.  Except for one small detail.  Behold: parrot carvings on the eaves!

AWESOME.

Meanwhile, I continue to draw tiki-themed sketches for all people who purchase Narbonic and/or Skin Horse books from the Couscous Store.  A few of the latest:

Tiki Office: Now It Gets Serious

I’m as amazed by this as anyone, if not more so, but it looks like my long-dreamed-of detached office and tiki bar is actually becoming a thing.  In the last few weeks, the garage in the back yard has gone from this:

to having windows:

and even a door:

and a back wall!

This is all moving much more quickly than I expected, thanks to our awesome contractor Jody.  Tonight Andrew and I set out on a special fact-finding mission to the Kona Club on Piedmont to get ideas for the interior.  Andrew was inspired about walls.

To raise money for this project, I’m running a special on my cartooning group’s online marketplace, the Couscous Store.  This month only, any purchase of Narbonic or Skin Horse books comes with a tiki-themed sketch by me.  I drew a bunch of them at the Kona Club tonight.
