About the Artist

    Born in the backwoods of Arkansas, Derek was raised on little more than pork rinds and corn squeezins. Derek still resides in the south, and when he's not runnin' shine with his pappy, he's paintin' purty pictures for big bucks! Derek has worked the last eighteen years for a wide variety of clients, some of which have even paid him! In a twisted effort to pollute the fragile minds of America's youth, Derek has illustrated for Marvel Comics & Cartoon Network.

    Nowadays, Derek's illustration style, reminiscent of cocktail napkin art of the fifties, can be seen in such magazines as Atomic, Barracuda and Car Kulture Deluxe. Derek's freelance moonshine business, coupled with the ever growing demand for his art, keep em’ purty busy indeed. Hard to believe, but he has sold more illustrations to more satisfied clients than Elvis and the Beatles... COMBINED!!

About the Art

This limited edition has been created using the fine art process of color reproduction known as Giclée. Using this process, Island Colours of the Florida Keys has printed this edition on 330gm Somerset Velvet substrate. This limited edition has been taken from the original hand-inked illustration, which artist Derek Yaniger has enhanced through various processes. Published in 2003 exclusively for the Hukilau 2003, this edition is limited to 50 pieces in the general edition.

This sculptor is a native to the Sunbelt of Phoenix Arizona. AL grew up surrounded by the carved Spirits of his Dad’s Hopi Kachina Doll collection. It must have been the 115°+ temperature that broiled the tikis and coconut oiled bikinis, of local ‘Big Surf’ Beach, into his psyche. Perhaps thanks goes to his father, a loud-Aloha-shirt wearing, S. Pacific Veteran, who took his five-year-old to Hawaii, and has watched every program of ‘5-0’ since.

In 1990, during his education at Art Center Pasadena, AL started carving tiki necklaces for the surf band ’The Swinging Tikis’. The band dubbed him “Crazy Al” for his on stage and on bar antics.

In 1995 “Crazy AL’s Bone Productions” was created to provide Tiki products to this Surf Crowd.

The Bone Productions’ offers reproductions of C’AL originals

You might now find Crazy AL carving a tiki, live on stage, with his tropical themed band APE! Crazy AL’s carvings can be found at Copro/Nason Gallery Tiki shows

Crazy AL does not pretend to be a "Polynesian Tiki-God carver",
but prefers to celebrate the Ideal that is “TIKI”!!
Now beautifully laid out in “The Book of TIKI”

His 3-7 foot tall palm trunk tiki triumphs are strictly Crazy Al originals.

In carving these wonders, Crazy AL goes through a lot of rice and bananas. In order to continue carving, and patch his grass shack, he must make modern day sacrifices to the tiki gods - and they ain't takin' pooka shells! Most Tiki Men are $100 or more per foot - depending on individual complexity.

[This does not include shipping the heavy mothers]


Dave carves in a traditional style, and focuses on aspects of the true tiki bar that are often neglected. Besides the classic tikis, he carves weapons, shields and panels that adorn the old school tiki bars. He has created re-creations of the Trader Vic's poles you see in all those venerable locales. He is bringing a truck full of his carvings to Hukilau, and taking custom orders.

A sampling of his creations.
