Ken,

"Search for the King" is a beautiful piece! I love the glowing edgee to the trees! Rather mystical, I must say.

Sorry I'm missing out of the thrill of the Three Kings show! What a cool line up!

Aloha, Mele Kalikimaka and A Hui Ho Ho Ho!

Meheadhunter-Thank you Sir! Hearing from the fellow brotherhood of Artists always recharges the battery and fills the inspiration tanks!Hope i can do the same for you.And we're sorry you couldn't make the show,it was a blast and an incredible piece of SoCal History...Closing receptions on the 5th of January,last chance!
Brad!
Thanks! I actually put that piece up in the 3 kings show,but it has such a shimmering silence that it just recessed into the wall of the gallery (despite it's size...)
Very strange...I'm glad you picked up on the vibe!
Been talking to the owner of the gallery about a possible group show with some biggies...
and your name was first on the list!
Maybe we can force you over here again!

Well,haven't had much time for Tiki with the
post-3 kings show and work/holidays,buuuuuuuut...
i do have a lil somethin for ya...
I've been in the bad habit of hand-making cards
for friends and family for the past few years
and here's the batch of tiki ones i thought you'd enjoy checking out!
sorry I've been such a slacker with posting lately....
Big and beautiful things will be born aplenty in 08
i promise you that!
First Batch....

Second Batch...

what i do is get a BIG piece of Arches Cold-press and go crazy crackhead on it with ink!
then i began to cut out abstracted "Tiki" ala WITCO/Modern abstraction...After that i began to apply layers of pen,sometimes brushing it against the edges to get a burnt look.of delineating a nose and an eye,letting the shape dictate the design a bit...Well, anyways,
it was a fun little project and you all got to check out 45 Newly Born Tikis! And it gave me a bit of a mental break...seeing these weren't for anyone special but friends and family, I thought i could just be damned with the rules and play and learn...and it seemed to work..
a couple really ugly ones,but a few bright shiners too!

as you can see i used reg pens,brush pens,marker,brushes,you name it!

the flowey background added a nice ground to these...

some i even added wood textures!

i LUVS the little pseudo PNG guy in the upper right! Who's getting him? i Dunno!

What's up with this cat's legs?

Cheggout the Frankenstein lookin one on the right!

Here's a fun group!

little sad boy bottom left....


Thanks fer visiting and
have a Merry Christmas!

Hello and thanks for the happytalk Sneaks,ravers,and Meheadhunter!
it was a blast makin em!
well....actually got 2 days of painting in and a little bit here and there during the vacation...
not as much as I would have liked,but....that's always the case!
Got some Arches watercolor paper for Christmas,so i finished one....
"Swamp and Hut"
ink/Bleach/Sharpie on Watercolor paper

and half-finished this one....
working title...."the Battle"
ink and sea salt on watercolor paper

this one was reeeeal dark til i squirted some water on it
(after the ink and Sea salt,of course) and it got light
with a neat-o texture in the background...
think I'll add some tapa-ish elements to it for the background...

also got some more work done on "the Journey" the birth canvas...

did a bunch of baby face studies and settled on this one...

worked over the clouds and huts some more.....

also made the sky bluer and cooler-more relaxing-for the Heaven area...

did a lil more lighting on the boat,having it reflect some of the water below it...

and finally becoming satisfied with the transparency approach..

Next up...transparency and rain and water! Exciting,huh?
And since it was Christmas,I made the wife a nativity drawing...
with a South Seas style manger!
So it's kinda tiki,eh?
"the Nativity" ink/Sea Salt/Bleach/Sharpie on Watercolor paper

Here's God with the Holy Spirit dove and the star...

here's some angels,who i modeled more like a mix between seraphim and traditional angel...
Plus,i was too lazy to picture a multitude of angels filling the skies
so i made em big and let the stars in the sky reflect the multitudes of the heavenly host...
Closer.....

Here's the whole manger...Bamboo Ben style!

and here's the lower left,beneath the enormous angel's wings
you can see the 3 Wise men and shepards wandering over..

and more shepards here on the left....

Well, Merry Christmas again friends!
and a Happy New Year!!!!
Don't Drink and Drive!
