That Lazy Susan is amazing... you want it to spin & hang from the wall maybe the constructive types could help but, it sounds like if you are able to slide it into something that would stay stationary on the wall and allow for the lazy Susan to rotate you should be able to create the proper effect!

I can't believe the wood burning kit came with tiki stuff that's a pretty cool idea and they turned out great!

Did I say wow! I wish I could be on the west coast for the big show and see all these in one place!

Hellooooooo kiddies!
Had a little Art spurt and decided to share them tonight!
Sam-Happy that you like the woodburning!It does seem very primitive with the look and the feel of natural wood! It feels like drawing in slow motion,and there is a little bit of resistance,especially if you hit a knot or somethin'! Thank you also for the props on the sketchbook entry...Reading a lotta books on Oceanic subjects,i'm always fascinated by the etchings of the crew artist,of the natives,their villages,dances,tools,and chiefs...just love the intricacy! The idea of a big portrait of a tangata manu birdman chief is still on my list of things to do....you happen to have a spare TIME-EXPANDER?
Matt-Mahalos!I love trying new things and this one "took"!
Babs-stoked you're stoked about the woodburning as well! The Cannibal Cave would make a great tabletop for a midget....i need to go garage sale-ing very soon.If I find one,i'll let you name the subject matter!
Ben-Dude! you got your own MUG! that is too RAD! You're a constant inspiration! Thanks for the advice on how to hang that Lazy Susan!You are the Jedi Master!
Sophista-tiki-Dawn! Thanks Gurl! Have you tried woodburning? You would probably be an ace at it!
Chongo-my bruthah! Don't think i could hook up a motor to that contraption BUT with ben's sage advice,i think it could at least be spun gently on the wall!
BigToe-Dude! get back to work! we got a show in about a week and a half!
Jonsesy!
shhhhhhhhhhh! Jail and I don't get along...
Tikisgrl-thanks for the advice on the LS! Glad you like it! The woodburning kit came with these crazy designs of quails,an American eagle and flag,a deer,none of the cool stuff like tikis,wizards,and rattlesnakes! I just used a water-soluble pencil,sketched it on,woodburned it,wiped it off and BAM! finished product... we'll miss ya on the 15th!
Frederick Ballz! Thank YOU bruthah man!Always an honor to have you visit this thread.Glad the Cannibal Cave buzzed you out!
Alrightio!
Time for some new work...Been pumpin em out for the 3 kings show....the end is finally in sight!Phew!
Haven't even given these titles yet....fresh out da oven!

the Sides...

Next piece is a long vertical i woodburned last Friday,then ink-tinted last Saturday...

Top

Middle

Bottom

Then i bought this wood plank with the rough bark edges for the next woodburning project...dunno what the pine bark has to do with tiki,except maybe for the kitsch value,but it makes for a fun piece!
this one actually has a title..."Tropical Night"

Up close and personal...

Dig those grains baby!

Also started on a Maori Face....

There's a knot at the top that i'm gonna have to deal with...
but for now,let the pine scent and burning wood take me away!
here's a close-up....you can see the water-soluble pencil marks....

Also did some little teeny tiny 3x5's for the show!
A lot of these are characters inspired by PNG motifs on shields,masks,etc...



this guy made an appearance in "the Arrival"..

Here's a 5x5er...

The whole process for these was a streamline/factory mode...
gesso and gouache-mix around the background-let dry....
then i busted out the black sumi ink pen and drew the outline or motifs
then it was naples yellow gouache then white then hunter green,etc....
this next one makes me smile
"King cannibal's moonlight meal"

I dig how the colors turned out on it....and the expression...
and now for something completely different...
About 3 months ago,Squid happened to find this pair of mounted bull Horns
and sloughed it off on me to "create something" with it! what a friend!
so i did...here it is so far...

and here's a closeup of the face... It was so dirty and nasty...when i cleaned it with a babywipe,it smelled like an old dog! ew...

and here's one of the horns so far...i was gonna woodburn or dremel it,but dave said it would smell really bad...sooooooooo...

Well, that's it for my continuing tale of Art addiction...see ya soon!

Dude! The wood-burning stuff is great, reminds me of the work on the sides of your mugs. You should start placing "Buy It Now" buttons next to everything you post.

Man, you are the wood burning MASTAH! It really suits your style. You need to full-body tattoo a big-assed tiki....
I love this little fella too - the different blue highlights make him POP!

Hello fellow travellers!
Howawya?
Got to go tot the Tonga hut last night and had a HOOT! All the love and the laughs!
Very Rejuvenating.....Congrats to Suzy and Ernie/Dave/Holden/Ben on the killer mug! And Adriana and Crazy Al's work was off the hook as always! And he had on the coolest red pants on EARTH! TikiWineBear's pendants were glistening and purdy and badland beads was rockin some rad product! And i got the new Tiki magazine! ZING!
Anyways i left around 10:45 last night cause today was the day for final preps for the show...get it all done the weekend before and chill the rest of the week....take a night off...hang the show on tuesday and chill til Saturday....anyways,got all the pricetags done and some last minute finishing touches...
powered on thursday and friday and made a bunch of pieces for the show,so strap in......
LOL Tiki-great idea about the "Buy it now" buttons...Somebody get hanford on that! Glad you enjoy the woodburnings...i tried to apply my regular drawing style to it...I used to do a lot of hatching marks for shadows and depth (as i kid i was fascinated by Durer and Dore....what a geek!)and i guess that was the most natural approach for this new medium! Thanks again for the happy! I'll be sure to do more of the woodburning as soon as the smoke clears from the 3 kings show!
Babs!
"using found objects" sounds so much more valid than "Sprucing up old junk found and donated by friends"...Besides the Clys and meself,Big Toe also likes to paint on battered up old stuff! There's always a challenge and delight in transforming this stuff into BRAND NEW JUNK! and something completely different! Mahalos!
IKI!-Thank you my artist friend! Someday our paths will collide and we will PARTAY like fine artists!(ie: geek out and excitedly discuss the Fauves...)
Clarita-Gracias! Wish you and Sneaky both could be at the show..In fact, i wish the whole TC art community could attend...What a party and honor that would be! i'm really happy that you and a bunch of other folks dig the woodburning...I will most certsinly delve into this new medium and push it to it's creative limit!
Paipo! Always a pleasure to have you visit! And really stoked you groove on the "Te arawa Tiki"- the blue shadow on there was to kind give it an otherworldly, exotic feel...i guess it kinda worked1 Thank you mate!
Hodadhank-thanks muchos man! Great visiting your shop when the wife and i were down in San diego!
well. here's those new pieces i kicked out on Thursday and Friday....
these first 2 monkeypod bowls were painted over because the designs weren't doin it for me....
So here they are!
"Smiling Face"


I really like the blue of this one...
A lotta these won't have the titles because they're quite long ..
for example "figure inspired by a malu board (sawos tribe-png)" and after typing up 92 pricetags i get my East Sepik Canoe prow shield mixed up with a Purari tribe PNG Ancestor Board....so if the title doesn't come to me whilst typing,i'll just moveon.org!
next piece...not so tiki..."King seahorse"

Remember this piece? "Land of the waterfalls"-finally finished dremelling a frame for it...

close-up

finished this little wee "happy hut" with a bamboo ben frame!
Go buy one of his mugs-Now!
"Palms"

Here's my absolute favorite of the hour!
"Running Marquesan"

"Search for the King"

Not really tiki,but a purdy piece i just wanted to share...
finally finished it! took long enough...
Close-ups



"the Apparition"

Also finally finished the edges of "the festival" and will have this in the 3 kings show...

"the king's Voyage"

and finally, the one i almost didn't do....
the one i almost gave up on.....
"Tiki Platter"
Great wood color-great grooves to catch all the juices
beautiful shape....
Originally i had developed this,but it didn't sit right...

it was a turkey platter-teakwood-from one of Squid's thrift excavations
so I really wanted to make something that would please the master.......
So i added some ZAZZ to it!

When approaching the pallette i decided to go with the wood instead of fighting it,so i dusted down the brights and used a dark sepia for the blackline....
I'm very stoked with this one....
also very sad....cause i know some bassard's gonna buy it and steal it from me forever! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
here's some close-ups....




well, that's it! it's been a loong day! i gotta hit the hay! werd...

The "Running Marquesan" is sooooooooo cute!!!! I absolutely adore it, and the search for the king is very ominous.... I love the styling of your trees. Who cares if it isn't "tiki" you've done so much tiki, is great to see something different thrown in the mix!

The fact that you redid the platter, is great! It turned out SO much better!
When comparing the original and the one you have now...those bright pastel-ish lookin colors were just...blegh...not working at all.
Love the final results!

I am so stoked fer the 3Kings shoooow! I am going to plaster the school with the flyers!

Keep on rawkin!

The tiki platter is one of your bestest! I love it, very courageous of you to rework it, the original wasn't bad, but the redo was zazztaztik!
Awesome!

Thank you Sneakytiki,ravenne,and Kelly!
You kids keep me stoked!

Well,here's a tale about the Tiki Platter.....finished it this weekend...posted it.....
got an e-mail from my old friends Denise and Ricky....and now it's sold!
Sold before it even hit the walls of the 3 kings....BUT....here's the exciting part....
they're buying it for their father-in-law who owns and will display it .....
get this...
in an Alaskan Lodge!
How funny is that?
Knowing where it's going offset the
3 days i had to get attached to it...
Still a bit bummed i won't be able to share
it with all of you,but i think my other 90-plus paintings
and the zillions of pieces from
the Toe and 'Dalle should keep you entertained....

the Toe put the time at 6-10...we agreed on 8-midnight....
so now the OFFICIAL time will be 6 to midnight...
I should be cranky by 10 so arrive early!
