Aloha everyone, below is the poster art for the Tucson, Kon Tiki Grand Re-Dedication party. The limited edition tiki mug is shown to the right and comes with a pendant around his neck. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at the party April 22nd, fun times.

"Welcome to Paradise"

Great poster and mug. The suspicious/jealeous monkey is a nice touch. I also particularly like the painted tiki in the corner. I don't see them often. The subtlety of the volcano kinda makes the whole thing. Real nice.

Great Poster SwampFire. How did you get your Monkey to look like Crazy Al? Or is it Crazy Al that looks like the Monkey. Love your art, as it includes so much hilarious stuff.

Thanks foamy, most of the tikis in the Kon Tiki are painted. In the book Tiki Road Trip it says the were painted to cover up graffiti, not sure it that is true. The tiki in the corner of the poster greets you as you enter the dining area of the resturant.

Thanks AlohaStation and PockyTiki

BambooBen, the animation turned out great. Too bad the artwork looks kind of rough, the poster was not finished at that stage when I sent it over to Holden.

Benz, thanks I really dig your art also and yes al is great inspiration for all of my monkey drawings.

Swamp,
I always dig your work and you didnt let me down with this one...Nice. You have such a clean style, plus you can never go wrong with a drunk monkey.

Quick question for you...about how many hours do you put into a piece like this one from conception to finished product?

Thanks Hewey, Sneakytiki, rodeotiki. I really appreciate that.

Ben, sounds cool. In the frenzy of tiki oasis we have not gotten to talk much. I look forward to building a straw chain with you.

Loki, thanks. I usually start with a pencil sketch outside of the computer and scan that to use as a guide. Draw it out in a program called Illustrator and do the final rendering in Photoshop. The Kon Tiki piece was about 20 hours or so. I've never actually timed how long a peice takes me, not that organized I guess.
