Hi Kids!
just a lil note to check in and reassure you that
i ain't been slacking...

Had hakalugi over to the studio this week!
What a terrific fellow!
All the Ohana seems to be just that..Ohana!
thanks Karl!

Brad!
The Madonna and Child/Mother and child theme is such a Universal theme
to all people...so why not translate it with a South Seas twist....
Thanks for droppin in and leaving some niceness!
oh...before i forget....
I'm caretaking some paintings and prints by Brad in my studio in Orange...
Now would be a good time to buy them,as you can save on shipping...
in the meantime i will be examining them with a microscope in the vain attempt
to capture TikiShark's style...
Here's two I have up right now....
i know...i know....they make my paintings look pathetic...

So PM Brad and make him an offer and then just drive down to Orange and pick it up!
Closer than the Big island!

GROG-you snooze you lose.....Hakalugi was quite pleased with his new pieces....
i think even more pleased because he shanked you on a drawing....

raves-can't wait to see some of YOUR newly inspired pieces!
french fried taters...MMMM-HMM....
i kinda have a liking towards the lame cannibal...most cannibals seem so healthy and active..but what about the old and infirm ones?

4WD!
Bill!
can't wait to see you tomorrow! Sorry you got shanked too...
i'm kind of sad it's gone...


but scroll down..i may have a surprise for you!

LOL-thanks man! so glad you're enjoying that "Outside the Village" piece..
I did a LOT of Orongos last year...even a mother and child...

Tobunga!
Eric, I feel the same way about your work!
Always inspiring!
Always makes me smile!
tell Manuel i said "Aloha!"
(I fear that you get all the attention)

Okee!
Here's some REAL crappy progress pics-so bear with me....

"the Lost Rowers" progress
the whole piece....


now i'm gonna left to right..












DOI-YOI-YOI!


Oars......the Oars.....






wide angle shot...


branches..please excuse the glare..til i seal it
we'll be dealing with that..


Got some wooden goodies at the thrift store near the planet Rooth gallery..
Squid DID get the Maori songbook tho!
But i got this beautiful oval serving tray that i started painting on with acrylic...


Also been loosening up just to see where it would go..
started with this... a twice failed/painted over canvas.....


and started roughing in this...

Dunno how these are gonna turn out...
I'm so used to being all tight with the pieces....

Here's 2 more....dunno...it's an unknown territory i'm entering....
could turn out Super crappy and Embarassing...but I'll 'ave a Go at it!
wish me luck....





We'll see...stay tuned!

Also worked on some drawerins....
and here they are!
i took the blurry out of em!

"the little Rower"


'The Advance"


and seeing as Bill 4WDTiki was soooooo bummed at hakalugi
gettin that Solomon Island paddle piece..
I did another version with a different composition and colorway...


similiar...yet very different if you compare.....

that is all friends...less blurry pics next time.....
Adios!

Hi! It was great to see you at the chop on Saturday! Thank you for letting me dabble with your paints, that was so much fun! It was cool learning some of the techniques you use to create such neat back grounds. I had no idea! Here's a picture that Babalu took of us in action...



Here's a picture of the finished piece...

I have to figure out what I'm going to make with this! I'll definitely keep you posted. Thanks again, and hopefully we'll see you soon!!

Zaya

i cannot wait to see what y'all create with this arcane knowledge!

Well, got the oval PNG wood Thrift store thing done

Branching into new territory is great. I like what I'm seeing. I guess your old stuff is cool too.


I kid. The rowers look very nice. Actually all the new stuff looks good.
Cheers.

eh...
anyways....
enough of shenanigans!

Ben-Ringo was INTO anyone with food that day...
must've smelled like Cold Cuts!
Bravo on the Luau my friend!

Bradley!
Thanks pal!
Would love to see your take on a Tangaroa!

Duddles!
There's a whole world of great tiki/Polynesian art out there!
I'd like to see more of the TC artists tackle some of these genius pieces!
That style is pretty easy..mostly ink and tissue paper base...then ink...then gouache or white pencil for the highlights....

Matt-thanks man!
but you're wrong....
the old stuff is NOT cool....
but you are!
i guess!


well, JonPaul came down for the tikimag photoshoot and final review of the interview questions...
Boy's got a good brain and ear!
Did you know he was raised by artists?
Anyways,the hard-workin fellow covered Squid and meself in the same day!
Talk about marathon interview session!
So now he's gone and i had the opportunity to mess up the studio and get some more work done!
i did three drawings,but those I'll post at the bottom tomorrow...
Anyways....got the "Greeting plaque" done finally! acrylic on wood...


Here's those 3 abstracts i started..
Here's what i had last time..

and here's what happened when i did it....

"the hunting party"
acrylic and paintpen on canvas


Here's the start of this one...


and here's the final.. "Nocturne"
acrylic and paintpen on canvas...


i really like the mood of this one!
so here's some details....







Here's what i started with the third abstract canvas..


and here's what i ended up with...
"Sun and Village"
acrylic and paintpen on canvas...



a little bit happier than the last one...
details!







Then a couple of days ago, i just started sketching a picture on this 20x24 canvas
and before i knew it-had the whole base gouached in...like this!
"the Village Tiki"


then i added some watersoluble pencil for shading and highlights....


here's some details of that...




and then today ,after spray sealing it,i started going over the areas with paintpen
like this!


details!








1 or 2 more sessions and that will be done!
Anyways....
Babs finally got my humble LLT #1 Mug done!
Can't wait to feel it!
here's some shots of it!
Thanks Babalu! Can't wait for the next one!


slight aerial view...


sideview!


Well, that's it til i post those 3 drawings from the weekend on Monday!
G'night ohana!

Well, it's monday and here's those 3 drawerins i promised ya!
First off is a piece reflecting on the indigestion-induced dream of a Cannibal and all of his long forgotten
victims and meals....
"the Dream of Past Meals"


the second is another abstract...a study for a bigger piece...
a little funner and brighter than the previous....
"Meeting at the Lake"


and the last is a revision/update of my Happy Hut theme...
i calls it... "Happy Hut"...duh!


that's it! Back to Woiks!

Excellent new stuff.

"The little rower" is a new personal fave.

The abstracts are a blast.

"Greeting Plaque" is too cool for skool.

The picture of your studio proves that your dojo is superior.

I wonder how much of this is going to be in the book?

Do you have any pics of what Golen gets to hang?

Kickass.
