Mr. Bali Hai recently posted an entry on his Eye of the Goof blog to the artwork of Michael Uhlenkott, courtesy of a tipoff from Mark Frauenfelder. Uhlenkott’s artwork is “informed by extensive research and travel throughout the South Seas” and it shows — his graphic illustrations show the influence of traditional art quite clearly. Gorgeous stuff.

    Humu, I just saw that you got mentioned on boing boign (again). That Google maps thing looks pretty cool.

    We were going to try to go to Toyko’s Trader Vic’s for New Year’s Eve (since we’re so close these days) but it didn’t work out that way. Still haven’t found any tiki bars in Korea but we’ll let you know when we do.
