Kinny, I know your mind already creates faster than your hand can paint, but here's another project for you - your designs would lend themselves well to mosaic or stained glass. How 'bout it?

HOLEY POOP SHUTE!

I can't believe how many posts I missed in this thread, like a million new pieces I haven't seen (even if some are progress and what-not!)


I really like the "Sea Monster" piece, that Octopus is so awesome lookin as an abstract! And that poor lil moai dude drownin in the corner! OH-NOES! that's hilarious!

That Minotaur piece tho may be my fave, it plays with your eyes a bit (least it does for me). The many legs gives it these different kinda action poses but all haywire in a good sense! I wanna see more non-tiki snuck in yer threads, they look killer!

And that butterfly one is so purdy! Was it scanned in? Cuz I like the lighting on it, the dark around the edges and kinda bright glow in the middle.

Ahhh so much to look at and comment on all at once! I gotta go backs and look at more


cool beans tho, kin-kin!

I love the scans you posted, and don't care if they're older stuff 'cause they're super! "Four butterflies" has searing, gorgeous color. "Theseus and the Minotaur" really messes with the part of my brain that likes sorting out patterns. The whole batch KICKS.

Wow.

Migation looks killer with the black boo.

Okay!
all this stoke these past 2 pages...
i can't be all stuck up and sheeeeeet...

Stoked y'all like the new stuff...
and the new scans...
they really do freshen up the pieces....
Thanks to all y'all that come and visit...
seeing as i would rather be at the studio
fulfilling my art mission
your visits here are always a welcome to a long day of painting!

Hugs!

Sneaks!

Don't you mean Tectonic plates in your rant up there? Teutonic plates are Germanicytiki dishes, har har.



sorry! the brain filters just skimmed over that one!
I'm way happy that a true artist "gets" that minotaur piece!
For serious man...

MadDogMike:
mosaic and stained glass?
the mess...the lead...
i would want to do it veeeery professional-like
like Chagall did-translating the gouaches to tighter studies
to handing it over and collaborating with Stained glass Masters and even then -helping with the cut glass-painting on it,laying a wash down and etching out areas-these things, when done right-will sing...
If not, i think it would look amateurish...
and if the drawing or painting looks better than the final result-then why do it....
Any serious stained glass or mosaic pieces need to be treated
right...and there's so many other factors/light/design/space to display it/finding a patron...
sorry about that...i rant....
too much time is the factor...
maybe when i'm older!

ravers!
welcome back!
Glad you like the Sea monster
glad you didn't see it before with the AWFUL scan!
2 votes for the Minotaur! YAY!
i'd like to personally thank Clysdalle for this Posting of NonTiki Art breakthru!:)

and the butterflies were scanned in!
What i did was layed down the tissue paper more in the corners..
then i washed it with some ink over it-but paid less attention to the middle of the piece...
that way it would look like sunlight dappling off trees
but in an abstract way,a referential instead of literal illustration of that forest! a sense of it...
hard to explain...
but i'm glad you like it!

Sai-Baba-Lu!
3 votes for the minotaur
2 for the Sea Monster!
YAY!
thanks dude!
you're my Socrates...

Hamel the Camel,
whussup?
2 votes for 4 butterflies
4 votes for the minotaur...
so stoked that i could mess with your mind...

Been looking at some futurist works just for the movement
and some Symbolist works for colors and inspiration lately!
y'know what really KICKS?
your friggin pastels!
way to go makin the rest of us look like amateurs!

Jonesy-only you can capture the sense of a piece
with just a couple of words!
schizophrenics do that,you know!
Thanks man for the luv!
stoked!

these next comments are for the ones after the DRIVE-BY posting....
FYI....

Ravers!
ben told me to throw a gloss or satin on it and watch it JUCIMIFY and it did!
it went from,
like, a dusty potato
(that reminds me of a joke i can't tell you..)
to lush dark bitchin bamboo!
THANKS BEN!
and thank you raves,for all the happy!

LOL-thanks man!
sometimes, when i get 1/2 way thru a piece or finish it
i'll smoke a ciggie and just check it out
make sure everything's in order
(i've found unlighted flowers and tree trunks without texture at an opening before! embarassing! but they never noticed!)
and that air of awesomeness sometimes will just make me smile and feel so thankful that a troll like me was blessed with
a really skill ....thanks!

jab!
dude! Thanks for the props and hilarious photo!
see you at a Chop soon!

Clarita-thanks Soul Sistah!

Ben-dude!
you're my hero!
thanks so much for making this crap look like real art !
you got such a way of putting materials together
that just nails it!
Chupa-freakin-Cabra is what you are!
See you soon, Goon!

Ken, I see you're creating art to fit those random frames. "The Migration" is excellent, the colors are so perfectly matched!

You gotta try something other than "The Sticky Medium" sometime - I'll hold your hand if'n it helps!

ALOHA KENNY~

Sea Monster and "Theseus and the Minotaur" are heights of abstract perfection. Really, I know dis guy who has a Picasso (a sketch he spent waAAAAY too much for long ago) ... and it looks like CRAP next to your AMAZING VIBRANT HEROIC work. Such movement, and beautiful color schemes... it's fired up the labyrinth in my brain!


"MIGRATION" - gosh darned that's cool! That frame make it almost into sculpture!

Fine fine fine work!

Yo Kinnie,

post pics of the "un-painted" boo frames with wood backs.

It's amazing what you do with them !
