Glad you like the view my friend...
it seems that a lot of the artists are jumping onto the next level!
see what a bunch of kookies can accomplish
when they share art,thoughts, techniques and a common subject matter?
each of you guys imbibe that work with that awesome terrible power of the originals
but temper it with the polypop humor and sensibility...
It seems like this family we have here has birthed a bunch of
really special creations...
wow....



I couldn't agree with you more, there is a real talent pool in this digital tribal gathering hut. Having so many awesome artist postin' eye exploding' images and willing to share their thoughts, processes and insights is a groovy thing for sure baby. Nothing short of inspirational. Carry on smartly Troops!

Mahalos Gang for all the LUV and encouragement...
if you only knew how much it keeps me from
setting myself afire...

teaKs!
Where you been?
Welcome back stranger!
Glad the new stuff excites ya!
it was exciting to just follow my bliss for a short few days
and to just explore and play and LEARN!



That Solomon Islands Paddle motif
relates the ancestors as spirits guiding the tribe to
the biggest amounts of fish...
Ive always been drawn to the flatness of certain culture's art
there is an innocence and freshness that's hard to capture in contemporary life..
too many distractions..
Would love to see your take on this motif..
especially as a lampshade!
the best part is you could wear it to parties!

Sneaks!
Wow! you've been out of commission too..
keeping that low-profile style....
Hopefully,this ArtBlast will inspire you
to bust out some more BIG paintings!
we need more Sneakyart!

tikithomas08
thanks my friend!
Hope to see you on Saturday!
and you may own an LLT original someday..
but i will always have the Biggest collection!
you may be surprised how affordable a lot of the pieces are....

if ANYONE is interested in ANYTHING on this thread
PM me..
I'm very reasonable..
i WANT you guys to have art in your huts...
Most folks see the gallery prices and shriek!
a little secret...
we get charged a 40-60% commission for the
honor of showing our hard work in Their gallery...
which means we got to bump up our prices
just to recover our costs..
most of the time we take a loss..
so cut out the middleman
and buy DIRECT!
i WANT you guys to have art in your huts...
Heaven knows i have Lots of Inventory!
and remember..
i WANT you guys to have art in your huts...

Robb-yup...that's my little tunnel vision...
sitting on an afghan saddle/pillow for hours on end
art supplies to my right on the shelf
coffee and ashtray nearby
and usually an art documentary playing...
check out the
HOW ART MADE THE WORLD series
(you can get it on Netflix)
shows how the drawn/sculpted image evolved
fascinating....
I agree with Picasso
who....upon viewing the cave paintings at Lascaux said..
"we have learned nothing.."
Seeing the boldness and surety of line of these bison and horses and such..
i would have to agree.....
Keep cookin out those small ones Robb!
That way i can see a new painting every week
and not reruns!

Ernie-thanks..i guess...

Chongo....I agree with your agreement...
huh?

Wow, that is a very cool take on the Madonna and child image. Powerful and unique work, Ken, as always.

I was originally gonna quote a piece...but then realized I actually like each and every one for it's own element, whether it be the style or the coloring.

The Lame Cannibal tho is my fave because it reminds me of Karl from SLING BLADE.
And I love Karl...and dem taters MM-HMM


Rawkin pieces tho - inspires me to do some quick pieces!
(which I will be doing to vend at this saturday event weeg's friend got in! wee!)




can't wait to seem dem paintin progress shots too!
