Fork out the $$$$, then. Artists don't survive on just praise. (keeding)

When it's artists complimenting other artists, it just becomes one big circle jerk.

This one reminds me of Mexican sugar skulls


The eye of the plumeria is an awesome piece mate, very nice! I think the blacking out really finished it off, must have taken some balls to paint it in though!

Great to see you using it for the power of good and not evil my freind

Thanks a lot for all the nice things y'all say...
unlike Ernie....
sigh.......
if any artist is doing this just for the $$$
(and not the joy of creating and investigating and sharing...)
then they are fools!
hewey-i think it's the motif around the eyes and the folksy colors that bring that to mind...
did Clysdalle put you up to that question?
i have some clearer Guardians of the plumeria shots below.... crispier and juicier!
and thanks again for that PNG book! INSPIRING!

First off....
please come and see this Awesome Collection of Tiki Art
on Saturday July 19th from 7-ish to Midnight-ish
440 east 17th st. Costa Mesa CA.......



Here's a clearer shot of the Mandala!



How it's gonna be hung...



and a couple of zoom-ins!










also did some work on the 2nd "Journey" canvas...



affixing a club to the side of the boat...



more lighting on the oar...



started carving his wooden shield



little more developing of the prow..



also the loincloth and some scroll of hidden knowledge



and a lil bit on the hair and face...



Slow and steady wins the race on this one!

here's some more shots of the SUPER SECRET HIGHLY CLASSIFIED
art for that tiki mag show!
Aren't you Luckys?
























That's it for now and probably til after the reception of the Freakout! next week!
hope to see y'all there!

aaaaaaaaaw fergit GROG!
he's just frustrated and lazy....
Thanks for pickin up on the Happy vibe of these pieces....
they were really fun to do!
Maybe I'll draw some more this week at the studio...
it's just that the paintings get jealous of the drawings
and i have to talk both parties down....
Well, as i explained earlier....
I'm working on figgering out some of the characters for the TIKI ISLAND LANDS ON PLANET ROOTH concept for the TIKI MAG show!
these are all gleaned from my sketchbook so a lot of em are very rough....
Hopefully, this will give you some insight into how one of them crazy paintings is a Born!

robot/tiki sketches


i figured Planet Rooth would be populated by creatures that evolved from Tropical plants...
so the Bird of Paradise natives were a shoe-in!


then i just started looking at tropical plants and imagining how they would evolve....


i tried to mix some Polynesian Design/Art motifs into the mix to Tiki-fy it....


Here's some more...
the one on the bottom left is loosely based on a certain orchid....
man! Earth has weird enough plants and Wonders!


no planet would be complete without a mobile cannibalistic Hibiscus!


Here's an alien tree with a Hei-Tiki-ish lizard hunting for food...


and here's a landscape with a spooky fang-toothed tree!


That's it for today....
Back to thinkin.....

Ken, you've gone to a new level, my man - a level so far out the rest of us can't even see it from here.

I hope Psychodelic comes back, you'll be sitting front and center!

Ken,
Great work on the Robo SOLOMONsters! brings visions of Tron and boom boxes to mind as well, perhaps that is what they eat??

The mandala is masterful, all the things we like about your work are present, and yet the black (almost negative space) give the eyes just a wee bit of rest. I like the super saturated detail next to the black. Without the stars and flowers was just as good (imho) opinion as well.

PS
Swallowing is best lest ye leave a mess upon thine blue dress leading to an inquest among congress at the behest of the blessed evangelical zest ending in presidential duress and the failure of the truth test!

Werd!

Man Kinney, you be one Crazy mofo. Just when I was loving this planet rooth I see this tree that gave me nightmares about carving wood. Man that tree would carve back,, talk about Tiki bites, he would give you Tree Bites. (shudder!)
Un-godly stuff sir!
