Keep up the incredible work brutha.

I like how the the second to last, the window looks like its own painting. Cool stuff. You got like a hundred mugs in that painting. TikiMag. has had the best cover art and now you are going to have to sign some peoples covers.

I love it. The woody looks amazing , love the patina on the paint.
Is the driver the same driver from the "Grand theft tiki" print . He must be out on bail or made a clean getaway.

Great work. What medium do you work in? Your art is so polished that it's hard to tell. The book is way, way cool.

AAron, Benzart, Palm City, Teakey, Sam, Chongolio and Rodeo, Thanks. I appreciate the comments. I always enjoy seeing all the great work you guys create here on TC.

Scott, great meeting you at Hukilau last year. I saw your recent work on your web site, great stuff man.

Foamy, thanks, the final is painted in Photoshop. I start with a pencil sketch outside of the computer, scan that and use it as a guide to draw out the image in illustrator, kind of like an underpainting at this point. Then I bring that into Photoshop and paint the final image. Probably more of an explination than you wanted.

Below is a painting I did for Gecko's limited edition card for his Voodoo tiki mug.



The lamp on the right is a rendering of one from Gecko's collection and the tiki on the sign is one of his carvings.

I like finding all the little details you pyt in your pieces, each a creation in itself. I like the 3 monkeys. They obviously don't have a problem, hearing, seeing, or speaking evil. Well, maybe they have a problem speaking it.

You should make prints of that last one (well...of all your stuff really, but I'm just focusing on the most recent post right now).
Vibrant, energetic and BEAUTIFUL! that card will compliment an already beautiful mug perfectly. Gecko must be very happy.

I like that you put the gecko signiture on the walls of the A frame. Very well done.

I just received my signed Goon mug, and it is the bomb! It looks great on the internet, but in person, it's 80 times better. Great job, Doug and Tiki Farm! You guys outdid yourselves with this one!

How'd I miss this thread! Holy Bejeeez, these are a feast for the tiki eyes. Perfectly done. Hmmm, can I make a screen saver out of these?!:)

Hey Raffertiki and Teakey, thanks, I appreciate it.

Sam, my Gambino mug arrived yesterday. He sits proudly on my kitchen counter. Like you said it is better in person than on the computer. Keep up the cool work.

Surfintiki, thanks, yes, screen saver is fine with me.

Hey Polynesiac, Awsome, glad you like it. I'm really glad you picked that image. It has not been a big seller of mine and it is one of my favorite pieces. Hey next time mention TC and get free shipping.
