Master K,

Grog is so right! Not about the flamer part, but about the "your on fire" part. Your work is taking on some really fun turns. Keep it up brother...You have me on the edge of my seat waiting on more!

Best!!

Anyways,today i was going thru my drawings and ink washes,etc and organizing the clearview folders
and had found a cache of olde fabric print designs i did about 10 years ago....most of em are tropical
so i scanned em and put em up for sale.....some i left as is..others i spiced up....
C'mon! i'll show ya!

" Islands in Space"


"Jungle"


"Moai Melody"


"Patches"


"Tiki Galaxy"


"the Echo"
sometimes these backgrounds just inspire a story!


Here's some ,what i call "normal" tropical/Hawaiian print motifs
sometimes we'd just take a style and knock it off into a new print...
pretty challenging....


here's a pineapple row for a stripe...


here's a Bali-inspired one i call "Bali-cious"..


this one reminds me of Christmas....


Here's two more abstract/print pieces on paper...
"Abstract Mask"


"the lost Dialect"


"the Firewalkers"
i had a bunch of colored grounds on paper just waiting for a second go at it!


"Brothers"


"Five Moais"
decided to try another Moai abstract piece...


and another!
"Moonlight Moai"
very sleepy and quiet and mysterious!


"Growler"
study from an old brochure or poster...forgot the place...you all should know!


"the Lost Shields"


"Mask Dream"


"Excited Chief"


and this one inspired by page 4 ot the Tiki Modern book!
"Jungle Gathering"


and all of these will be available for adoption at the TikiFarm Parking lot Sale!
Free hug with $100 purchase!
maybe i'll bring some ZIPFIZZES!
YAY! Now that they're all spread between 4 Clearview folders ,I can now begin my labelling!

How in the heck do you keep up the pace that you are on? Love the new stuff, and the studies and fabric samples. All top notch.

I have another gauche question for you, when you paint on the wood with it are you priming the wood with gesso or do you leave it unprimed. I'm still working up to trying it out on the paper, but I'm curious about the technique on different media. Also any advice on using paint pens with the gauche as well, or with acrylic? The paint pen questions are on behalf of Mrs. Frostiki, she picked a couple up to try out on some of her paintings.

Mahalo, Frostki

Serious goodness! I am once again amazed your use of colors as well as technique, execution and prolificness. C'mon now...How many Little Lost Tikis are there really? I am guessing you have a secret stash of oompa loompa like mininons that you are training..right!?

for wood....
for gouache, i usually mix a little gesso (GESSO! not acrylic gesso-read the label-it don't work as well as the real deal....Bob Ross gesso works very well! it does!) with some gouache to give the ground something to adhere it to the wood-sand lightly after drying (if you want...) then you can go over it with more gouache....If i want a good coverage, I'll mix the gouache with water til it gets a "little wetter than toothpaste" consistency....You CAN paint on wood with gouache if it's unprimed,but you MUST sand it! haven't done it that way enough to giove you advice tho!
As for gouache and paint pens......
here's the dealio..... If you do all the solid colors/backgrounds in gouache-YOU MUST SEAL IT GOOOOOOOOOD ...then you can paintpen over it....that's how i do it...but PRACTICE first!
I still mess up on occassion....Acrylics are your best bet for a ground to lay paintpens over....but i still seal that too so i got a nice hard "slickness" to glide the paintpens over......
and always spray with a UV spray and seal one last time when finished! and Seal it in between sessions/colors of paintpens -so they don't smudge or smear into each other.....
Hope that helps Frostiki! Here's to you and the Wahine's Creative journies!

LLT, thanks for all the pointers, even if one of them did involve Bob Ross ("Now let's paint a happy little Moai, behind the happy little tree.") Sadly I didn't get to painting yet again, it was too nice out this weekend. But I've got to start cranking things out for the Hukilau so stay tuned for updates on what I do with gouache.

Mahalo

WAY COOL!

And you think that's messy?
Geez, you'd prolly think I live in the slums if you saw my loft/studio area. sheeeesh!

great start on the night rowers, I still love them distorted faces! i love how some are just spaced out looking while that middle one is all smiley!

Can't wait to see more progress!


RAWK ON!
