GROG really like your "abstract moderne" stuff.

A little Asian influence in your hut on a riverbank, eh?

Well, back again...but i don't have much to offer this round...
been giving the five pieces headed to the Hukilau
(Fine Art Tiki exhibition curated by the Harold Golen gallery in Miami)
a once-over before packing them up to meet you East Coast TCers!
But i did get 2 ink drawings in...quality over quantity this time....

Sneaks!
Manaia was my favorite out of that bunch...and the NZ man as well....
As you know,sometimes an artist's brain is a waterfall...
other times it's a slow leaky faucet....
Last post was a waterfall!
Hope i can inspire you as much as you and all the others inspire me!
Thanks for the LUV!

Vampiress,
Thank you my dear! Still in shock that you were less than 100 feet away in your room at the Caliente!
two ships that pass in the night....in the fog! we'll meet up soon! And thanks for loving the mug!

Tabu-Hello! "Night Journey " and the others in that style are very fun because you can deal with a BUNCH of different
scenes within scenes....and the decorative/flat element of the piece plays against the dimensional aspects...almost like
2-D and 3-D meet! Sort of like the Ayhuasca (how do you spell that? it's a root i think) Yage shaman paintings like you brought up.... quite a few vision quest art pieces have overlaps of colors/themes/perspectives/spirit-physical world overlaps....What's in my coffee? Creamer! That's the advantage of a chemical imbalance...it's always there whenever you need it!

GROG!
Ken thank GROG for nice talk!
Glad you like Abstract Moderne stuff...make Smile!
Will do more to keep GROG happy!
Asian influence? Yes! Influence and Inspiration everywhere...
Plus-used sumi ink pen so Asian influence seeps out uncontrollably!

Brad!-I thought you'd like that one! he's got that "ready to jump off the page and jump around" feel!
like a wound-up coil! Looking at your paintings,you always have a few of those guys packed in there!
nice orange by the way!

Thank you all for visiting!
You're all TOOT-SWEET!

Well, like i said earlier...this round it's quality over quantity....
First off,had a tissue paper tinted scrap piece of paper and decided to throw some ink down over it
and do a fun little boat piece...so i took a little from here...took a little from there......
and this is what came out.....
"Three Rowers"

I really dig the overlapping of colors,it helps with the movement and mood....
before i applied the black ink,o threw in some bleach pen in certain areas to POP it...
after rinsing that off-i applied the black ink.....and.....TADA!
This next one is a study from a picture of a warrior that my secret patron sent to me to show me the feather concept..
I'm not sure if it's a chief or a warrior or both...
But, seeing as I'm slowly gathering up pictures of warriors to study and draw,this Cat was a Shoe-in for a study!
And what a study it was! i had done the ink background awhile ago and was just sitting on it til it talked to me...
Well, it talked to me last night and said."Hey dude! Do another warrior drawing,but on this ground.
The outer fuzzy frame around it echoed the hair and cloak of that guy...Do it!"
So i did...first lightly and fastly, sketching out the head-eye placement,cloak layers,etc....then i got a fine-point ink pen and did all the blackline.....Then i got some olive/sepia/and dark crimson ink and tinted it lightly,and then,again with the bleach pen for the POP of the eyes/teeth/bone,and after 5-7 hours of work and blurry eyes....it was done and i was stoked! well, enough description....
"Maori Chief/Warrior"

That's all i got til next time! Thanks for Peepin!

I really appreciate the obsessive quality of your work. It comes off as work the artist HAD to get out of his system.

I also like that you experiment, rather than getting in a rut.
