These need to be painted on walls down by the beach! Think big, and then think bigger.

Alohaw Friends!
hope y'all had a Great Thanksgiving! It was odd and inspiring as usual!
well, just jamming on some new pieces for the 3 Kings show with Clysdalle and big toe next month and went OFF! and did a lot of cool stuff to show y'all!
But first...
Hewey! Thanks old friend! The Totem did need some snazzing up and the pink did it! Phew!
Howland-Brad! Mahalos Man! You got the multiple arm/project thing going as well.....Animation? I'm busy enough! I have been buckling down to finish the Little Lost Tiki Kid's Book this upcoming year and i think the Cannibal King will have a part in it..
THEN i can sell the rights to Pixar and sit back/collect royalty cheques/and be able to see the characters animated without any additional work!
Enough of dream Scenarios!!
Ravers! Thanks Sweetpea! Instinct really does begin to play a part to personal creative solutions and as you get older it seems to kick in faster...Tell Luigi i said "Aloha!" He's a Good Kid!
Swampfire! Doug! A Big bout of gratitude for your kind words! I also get lost in your pieces...the wee little stuff in the background,the textures,the blue-ish off lighting you put in there..blows me away! Speaking of head-Exploding....your 2 new vert masks were stunning and left me Breathless! There's a heightened sense of drama you get with that blue lighting and black background.....Someone needs to create some mechanical assistant arms...with the KILL switch disarmed of course!
Babs and BooBen-Murals with the Cannibal king! i could cram 100 Skulls in those! I'm thinking the sides of Ben's shoppe need some excitement!
Anyways,the inspirational vacuum that is Thanksgiving is over and Friday and Saturday were pure Art Creation at the studio!
First off...those vertical museum stretched canvases...
PNG inspired Happy One!

Detail....

Here's a Cannibal One...

Close-up! Smile for the Camera!

and the sides...

The wifey,out of the blue,got me a WoodBurning Kit! Hmmmmm...
Time to try out a new medium...

Detail...

Very nice and vintagey!
Then, in the spirit of experimentation..I decided to do some ink tinting on it...

Not sure which approach i like better....kinda like em both....
Details para tu!




Also did some Hawaiian Weapon and Helmet studies....
I like how the feather head dress turned out...

Here's a Maori concept i have for another Swap Meet wooden fish...

Sometimes Inspiration can lead you down some strange paths...
With this I'd like to introduce "the Cave of the Cannibals"
gouache /gesso/paintpen and sealer on a Lazy Susan!
It Spins! It Moves! It's ALIIIIIVE!
not really.....but as soon as i figger out how to hang it I'll be in the money!
Any suggestions? Herro?

Here's some closer views of the Cannibals,eating,fighting and doing their little
Cannibal things....






And here's some close-ups so you can see the rough gouache coloring underneath the
sealant and paint pen layers.....




the Center...

Super Duper Close-up!

And finally finished the Cannibal Totem! YAY!
Can't wait to do the next one!

TOP

MIDDLE
this guy totally reveals my heavy Jack Kirby influence!

and here's some Orongos of a sort...

and here's some close-ups so you can see the layers up close....




and a real blurry shot of the sides...

Peace Out!

The "King" is Another Awesome piece. I don't know why I don't visit this side enough but I Really Gotta start stopping by more Often. Your stuff just Blows me away. It looks like you are having entirely too much Fun.
Cheers!

Sneaky!
Mahalos cause YOU da man! I agree with ya about the woodburning...it's just like drawing except slower and a little hotter! i got a new one coming up in just a minute!
Benz-
Thank you Sir! glad you like the King!and thank you for peeking your head over in the Other Crafts area! I don't see how you have any time,cooking out the masterpieces you do! that new hei-tiki is nothing short of incredible!
well, had another "fish" made out of wood from the swap meet in San Diego a few weeks back and decided to have a go at it with the woodburning kit last night! It was already stained and varnished ,but i burnt thru it anyway! (smelled like pine and sappy chemicals as it burned! Shoulda wore a mask as my head was throbbing upon finishing it...don't try this at home kids!
It would smoke and spatter like bacon grease as the tip cut thru the varnish and then the wood...It got so hot that my tip broke off about 90% thru the piece and i had to call up a reserve tip to the rescue! Anyways,after all that-here it is....
i took a semi Maori approach,but gave the gents Hawaiian helmets so go figger....
here it is!

the head...

the body...

the tail...

I made the guys kind of a stylized fish/glyph shape for a swimming,flowing feel
plus it gives it a decorative air...

that's it for today!
tomorrow's a Studio night and i just bought 13 pieces of wood to burn/dremel/and paint for the upcoming show,so stay tuned! thanks for visiting!

Hey Ken - It's great to see you woodburning! It goes so right with tiki and seems like a natural expansion of your great style. Your feather headdress "study" is a work of art in itself too. Very intricate like an engraving.

Ken, I gotta agree with Sam. The wood burning is a perfect extension of your stuff. Stunning work.

Dude! Your on fire! That cannibal crunching lazy susan makes me all creamy like. This design would make for a killa table top.

LLT = Wood burning = happy, happy!

LLT- The cave is coooool! They kinda of look like evil little cannibal monkeys fightin' over skulls and bones. If you could some how hook up a motor and have that lszy susan spinnin' it would surely hypnotize. Think of the fun you could have!
