"Future Bob"
Giclee on paper.

This is my imagining of Tiki Bob's resurrection sometime in the (hopefully) not too distant future & its subsequent centuries of success after that. And the secret of that success? Why, the ever popular "Lingerie Lunch" of course.

The image size is 16" x 22" and is much clearer than is shown. It's printed on high quality heavy paper and is a limited edition of 20. The price is $60.00 per print plus insured shipping so PM me if you're interested.

Piña Bob by Gecko
This is my latest that I call Piña Bob. My moms favorite fruit! I can here her now "Mikel buy mommy wun piña bepor u com hom"!
Me and Poptiki was going to do a colaberation pineapple bob a few years ago where it was just da pineapple with bobs face but it never came about. I still wanted to do it but only got around to doing it recently so I came up with this design that was a bit more complicated to create but was worth it in da end as it looks great.
I normally put flowers on da wahine bobs. This is da very first from da mold and is on da Kane bob. It will be da only Kane wit da flower. Da rest will be on my wahines. I will put these on eBay wen'eva I have da chance to make'm as they are a bit hard and time consuming to do.



Please contact him though his web Page at:
Made in Hawaii



When BOB's sombrero is off he is a decanter. He comes with this new cork.

This could also be made as a mug with sombrero.

SUPER CARVED BOB, Hand Carved so no two would be the same. Under glazed then covered with clear glaze. I believe that a regular Duncan IN glaze would have the detail remain deeper, the under glaze filled up the design. Your choice of colors.

DECANTER BOB, hand carved and no two alike. The cap is for display. If used as a decanter it comes with a new cork. This style can also be made as a mug.

SHRINER BOB choose your name and or symbols.

Glazed and then metallic paint added to name and symbols.

Straw hole in the back.

PEACENIK BOB, choose the hair color and style. Shirt plain or 60's wild.

TIKI BOB BOWL, color choice and bowl style changes possible. This is the first in a series that Dan calls the shouldhavebeen bowls. There were mugs and there shouldhavebeen matching bowls. Now there will be!

Acrylic on canvas/card, not framed.

Tiki Bob's in the Jungle Room.

This is my husband Dan (wendylovestikis) he never posts because he never learned to type. He does however collect tikis, they are his passion. Today he twisted my arm to sell him every one of my Tiki Bob creations. I love my husband and so what can a woman do but give in. SO I will take orders for each of the ceramic Tiki Bobs. I will do better now that I have had practice. Each one is hand carved or built so no two will be the same. That goes for colors as well. You can make special requests.

Example on Shriner Bob Zelzah is now gone. Aloha has been ordered so it's gone. What would you want? More than 6 letters will make the word smaller. I could instead of Shriner symbols put a Moai head on the front of the hat. What I can say is that a Tiki Bob Bowl I sell on order will not have a hole in his head like this first one. Peacenik Bob will have your choice of hair color and the shirt will be different designs.

So what I'm saying is that I'm up for custom BOB's, the price will stay the same. Do you have a Bob that you would like me to make that is different from these? Let's talk. I'm reliable and I will work hard to make you happy, Wendy

ADD ON: I am making a Tiki Bob Decanter for the Sacramento Crawl next October 2011. It will have a small volcano on top. If you are interested in owning one I will put you on the list to be notified if any are left over after the event. At the moment it is sitting in the center of a 6 piece mold. I have not poured even one. Here are photos of it in clay. They will be sold by who comes to the crawl first and who is first on the list who did not attend. No obligation. No price yet. Cheers, Wendy

Based on this design.

PRICE LIST: I just decided to lower previously quoted prices. So for those who have ordered early here are the show sales prices. I will take orders until midnight March 31st, 2011. After that I'll be working on these orders.

South of the Boarder Bob (Decanter or Mug) $110 plus shipping

Super Carved Bob $75 plus shipping

Decanter Bob (Decanter or Mug) $110 plus shipping

Shriner Bob $110 plus shipping

Peacenik Bob $110 plus shipping

Tiki Bob (shouldhavebeen) Bowl $175 plus shipping

On The Road With Kinny And Tiki Bob an unframed acrylic painting 18 X 14 inches.

Please send me PM's with requests, thank you, Wendy

The "No Evil" Bobs by me COMING SOON.

Hated to miss the show on Sunday, and wanted to have my piece done before hand, but had a deadline I couldn't miss, so the show had to wait.


Here's some of the vintage Tiki Bob wood signs I did for the show. $40 each - PM me if you're interested in one. Should have them up on the website in a few days.

Wendy, What's the matter with Gecko...Can't post his own photos?
BTW the mug is sold.


Bravo! Great stuff.
Love it all. Wish I could have been there.

Bob was very inspirational

Hi MauiTiki, nope he doesn't know how to post here and I don't know how to read abbreviations. What is BTW? Help? Wendy

by the way

I'm too old to text. I'd never know enough abbreviations. Thank you S.Tiki!

Well Beachbumz that confirmed it. Wendy

I love those peanuts Bai!


Just added my vintage signs on page 1. Check them out!


Awesome thread Grog ,and every artist involved should take a bow ....incredible work !

GROG posted on Sat, Apr 2, 2011 12:50 AM

Thanks all artists who got involved, and thanks everybody for holding off on comments until after the artists had time to post. GROG will make some more Bobs and will post here when they are done.

Only ONE person commented that they liked the idea of Tiki Bob T-shirt, so that must be a "NO" for doing a Tiki Bob T-shirt, since nobody else was really interested in it.

We'll have to do another Tiki Bob show next year or later this year.

Mo-eye, love the signs. The Zombie Hut sign we got from you at Oasis was a hit during the Sacramento Crawl. Your art is terrific, Wendy

I want to let everyone who ordered a custom Tiki Bob know that I have begun to pour them and to make the hats and to do the carving. So if you look at my craft thread and see what's going on there know that whenever the plaster has been poured and is setting up I'm working on your mugs. It will still take a while because they have to dry before the bisque fire. I want to do a good job so I'm not going to rush it. Doing custom mugs is so much more fun than making molds. Thank you for your orders. Cheers, Wendy

DAN did a great job modeling for the 'South of the Boarder Bob' Wendy! YOU did a great job of capturing his likeness...it's nearly as handsome as HE is!! You're a CLEVER LADY...Keep it up!!!

Take care - Trader Jim (Make Mine a MAI-TAI!).

Hi James, Dan appreciated that comment. Thank you from me as well. Is there another issue of Pocketiki coming out? We love your magazine. Cheers, Wendy

GROG posted on Wed, Apr 13, 2011 11:21 PM
