Leave it to you Ken to BLAZE NEW TRAILS where the rest of us didn't realize there was a direction you could go. I'm in the groove with you, my man.

Since you scared the livin' crap out of my kids with the Choopacabrah (sp?) thang the other night, they've been obsessed with it since. We were at the River Jetty's the other day and found this (?).

Is it it?

Or, the victim?



Good thang there wer'nt alot of people on the beach cause they were screeming at the top of thier lungs
" Chubacabrah!!!" (sp?)

HELLO KIDDLES!

Hope all was merry and bright!

Robb,
Mr. Pastel!would love to see a Robb Hamel velvet on a mug!
Now THAT would be the shizznazz!
We's in the groove,bruthah!

Booben!

CHUPACABRA!
we also YouTubed some aliens,ghosts,and Giant skeletons!
Blake would make a perfect Cryptozoologist!

the answer is "neither."
that's a Bunyip!
2x3 brother!

well, last page, you saw a funny little gingerbread man
and thought to yourself..
"whaddaheck is that crazed maniac gonna do with that?"
Well....
here's the study...


and here's the "Tiki Gingerbread Man"!
run! run! as fast as you can!



and here's some details...
ink and gouache on gessoed wood..






Here's a photo of a recent drawing..
I'll post the scan in it's place
after i scan it...
it should look better...

"the Afternoon Boat Trip"
ink and sharpie and colored pencil on Watercolor paper


i think I'm getting closer to that Children's Book style
i've been searching for!

Here's some details for you to peep at!






























the low relief look and the glimpse underwater add to
the magical mystery of this one! wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

and here's a blast from the past!
i've been neglecting this 4-panel commission for more
months than i can remember!
So it's time to buckle down and get this puppy finished..
Here's the second panel when we last left it in July..


and here it is today....


behind each pair of canvases (can-vi?) there will be
a subtle warrior rowing through the scene..


and here are the first two "Journey' canvases
showing the rower in the background so far..


so anyways..
here's where we are today!
finally got that feathered cape done!
MON-NOT-TOE-KNEE!


here's a detail of the prow and part of the elbow of the background rower...


here's a warclub attached to the boat..


Here's the front of the boat and the "ghost" oar of the background rower..



here's part of the attached oar on the carved boat...
the motif on the background rower's boat and the main figure's boat has been quite a tangled challenge!




Here's our hero's face....






here's that derned cape..


Did a lil bit of work on the foreground spears...


Here's the front of the warrior's boat-you can see a bit where the background rower's boat overlaps..


detail of the warrior's shield..


and also got some of the background island village..


well, i'm off til the 5th!
so i imagine you'll see more progress soon!
Happy New Years!

The Afternoon Boat Trip - top drawer! It'd be brilliant to see a whole children's book full of such beautiful illustration. It's good. It's CHUPACABRA good!

Brad!
CHUPACABRA good?
wow...That's quite the compliment!
You're BRAD to the BONE!
Thanks for the encouragement!
Children's Book coming Soon!
as soon as it's finished!

croe67!
hey sweets!
thanks again for the Gingerbread man
and other assorted goodies!!
You definitely got the eye for these
Thrift shoppe treasures!
MOO-AI!
Actually, was gonna take a shot
at the Happy Moai/Sad Moai mug concept
next time there's a Clayjam!
well....5 more days of vacay!
where does it go?
Feels like I've had me nose to the canvas
FER-friggin-EVER!

Robb-Congrats man!
somehow i knew..
out of the 3 mugs..
that PUPULE would be the one you were drawn to...
Glad to here you're fisting it already...

May i recommend drinking coffee in it
for starters?
Then , slowly add Bailey's or Amarullo
to replace the coffee you've consumed
and you're in store for an interesting day
of motionless vegetation!
I am honored to be on your wall and shelf,my friend!

BABA!
Thanks for the visiting!
I feel so blessed to be friends with so many talent geniuses!
Inspiration for All!
Your newest edgar winter cobra fang is the creepiest of the three!
Can't wait to see what you and BOWfinger built yesterday!
CLAYJAM!

Happy New Years Clarita!
you got here a little too late for cookies...
GROG ate 3 and put the rest in his Simpsons jacket...
I'll bake some more...just for you!

welpers...
yesterday decided to loosen up after painting that feathered cape and other meticulous details..
and there was "the Lost rowers" just sitting on that easel
neglected for months..
and beckoning..


saying,"come Kinny! Time to loosen up for a day
time to thrust these rowers deeper into the jungle !
so i dids...

here's what i gots done yesterday!


and here's some details to show the fast/loose brushwork on this!
man! did i ever get a workout running around this monster
adding highlights/color fills/etc.










and here's some close-ups of the side of the boat motif and paddles so far...






and some ultra ultra closeups....




Still a lot to do, but the thick claustrophobic feeling is there....and the tension of the crew will be more intense
once the finished lighting adds to the drama!
i need some studio assistant elves!

Also finished a drawing...

"Fishing" ink/tissue paper/colored pencil on watercolor paper
loosely based on those Solomon island paddle motifs
and goin off from there....


here's a closeup of the boatsmen..




FISHYs!


Caught FISHYs!


Birds wantin the FISHYs...


well, that's about it! Off to the Studio!
ALOHA!

What a busy busy guy Lord Kenneth is! I love the vibrant colors!

Say, by any chance is that the Gingerbread man who lives on Mulberry Way?

Wowza!

I can only imagine what it would be like awning, er, OWNING a giant neo-cubist moai rower painting of some sort by Ken Ruzik.

Perhaps all the rowers could have GROG's head. Perhaps not.

But I'm not greedy. I'd want to share it with the whole city.

Such a conundrum.

Yep.
