Almost forgetting for the moment all thoughts of Moby Dick, we now gazed at the most wondrous phenomenon which the secret seas have hitherto revealed to mankind. A vast pulpy mass, furlongs in length and breadth, of a glancing cream-color, lay floating on the water, innumerable long arms radiating from its centre, and curling and twisting like a nest of anacondas, as if blindly to catch at any hapless object within reach. No perceptible face or front did it have; no conceivable token of either sensation or instinct; but undulated there on the billows, an unearthly, formless, chance-like apparition of life.

As with a low sucking sound it slowly disappeared again, Starbuck still gazing at the agitated waters where it had sunk, with a wild voice exclaimed- "Almost rather had I seen Moby Dick and fought him, than to have seen thee, thou white ghost!"

"What was it, Sir?" said Flask.

"The great live squid, which, they say, few whale-ships ever beheld, and returned to their ports to tell of it."

Moby Dick, chapter 59, Herman Melville

Wow, can't wait to see how the Squid War turns out! Looks like the humans are winning, but those squids are looking like they might have an ace up their collective sleeves!

Did you check out La Bufadora whilst in Ensendada?

It's a big hole in the rocks and when the tide comes in the water blows out like a geyser.
¡Es espectacular!

Did you pick up a miniature Mexican flag for yourself??

Very cool stuff, Ken! It's amazing how you compose these and put all of your elements together in a layout so that they seem to harmonize - like they started out together all along. Great to see that the Mexicans are enjoying the sensations of the Tilt-A-Whirl too!

Aloha Children!
from the Land of the Kraken!!!!

More progress made..
but first....
some visitin time!

TikiJoe's Pup!
Gracias Andy!
Tu' El Hombre!


Jonesy!
BlOoOoOoOoOoP!


Kiki-Thanks so much for enjoying "Night of the Falling Stars"
Great seeing you and Squid and Toe and Carolyn that evening!
and thanks for that Mythology book from my past! love those etchings!they bring me back to 4th grade!
Omigosh! Talk about gift Night!
Caroline brought me the Monkey Motherload!
And Squid brought me some BITCHIN frames and this...

a battery operated bunny (sans fur) to paint up like a robot.....or something fantastical!
I am so blessed to have such cool Ohana!!!
Anyways....
Gimme a call and i can give you some solid framing advise for your Sea monster!

Swampfire-Douglas! Thank you! As a kid, I used to dig on the dioramas at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago! Plus, those dern Golden Books and the How and Why Wonder Books...
The Above/Below scenes must have seeped in! I'd love to see a Doug Horne Kraken piece!!!!

GROG-Same to you!

Mango!-MAhalos my friend!
I'm hoping to make them feel a little less aggro,despite their actions..
I'm trying to get them to appear more controlled by their destiny..
a destiny somehow commanded by the stars falling from the sky...
The same stars that have activated the nearby volcano...
I hope,when it's finished,that it grants you years of daydreams....


MooneyTiki-GRACIAS! Thanks for the enthusiasm!
I'll keep em coming,don't worry!
i know of nothing else...

Brad!
Thank pal!
Now get off line and get that octo-girl finished for your show!

Robb-the base color is successive washes of Naples yellow, burnt sienna,and a couple of other warm tones.
i just streaked them down the canvas...let it dry....and added another layer...

Clarita-Actually,Terrill was encouraging me to read and draw but i couldn't for some reason...
Guess i felt out of sorts or maybe i was storing and accumulating visual data for later...
Or maybe it was burnout from Oasis,not sure,but upon return to the studio....CRACKO!
Back in the Saddle!Picnic!

TikiLee!
mmmmmmmmm! ZIPFIZZ!

Brad!
Less reciting Moby Dick-more painting!
it's like you're addicted to TC or something...

Bowana-humans winning? hmmmmmmmmmm....
We'll see...
No Bufadadora..it cost some $60 to get a ride down there to stay for half N HOUR! Photograph it
and then head back...
Working with a BLOWHARD like BigToe 3 days a week is enough!
Couldn't find any miniature flags...
you may have the only one on EARTH!

Hey Sam!
Thanks buddy!
the study i posted was after about 5 false starts..
i would grab the strongest details from the failures
and build upon them... Looks like it's paying off!
Thanks so much for "getting" it so far!
Viva La Tilt-A-Whirl!



Well, here's the progress on "Night of the Falling Stars"
Fleshing out more detail/Bringing areas out/Pushing areas back....
Burnt Umber and Naples Yellow are my friends!


Getting the stars star-ted...
Note the tapa-ish line for the cloud/volcano smoke...
this way, the ocean floor is separated from the surface
which is now separated from the sky...


Here's the Land Encroaching Beast slowly receiving some form...


Here's underwater big Squid,a little more fleshed out..


more ocean floor-trying to make the shafts of light more sculptural...


I'm really pleased with the way this area is developing...


A lil more work on the foreground sinking boat and the strange chief and his odd ceremony in the background...


The volcano and the stylized clouds and vegetation slowly
taking shape and getting some well-deserved depth...


and Lastly...
I'd like to say Farewell to two old friends....
"Dance of the Cannibal King"
36 x 36"
gouache on canvas


and "Arrival of the Pineapple King"
48 x 72" (4 x 6 feet!)


I sold them BOTH at the Freaky Boutiki Gallery this weekend!
Thanks HAnk!
Support your Tiki Art Establishments!

So today, i took one last shot before delivery to the nice peoples in a few days...

SNIFF!gonna miss you Big Fellar!

Thanks everybody for stopping by!

I love the Field Museum! Making those weird waxy dinosaurs in the machines was the best. Went back about 5 years ago and they moved the dinosaur machine to the basement near "Bushman" and got my fix of that awesome hot wax smell. I am a Huffer to the core!

THANKS KIKI !
I'm gonna miss it too....

But, hey! I've looked at it long enough...

Well, had to do some hanging/preparatory work
on pieces headed down to Sandy A-Go
and, in the lulltime
started a drawing for some friends of mine....
This one is an elaboration of an old piece
"the night parade"


but it was calling for some newer characters
and a different daytimey mood...
Here it is....
(about 1" got cut off on the left side of this..
i'll get a better shot later...)

"Tiki Joe's Jungle"
ink and marker and water-soluble pencil on Watercolor paper


This guy will be heading up North in the next month or so
to assist Joey and Sammy with their Dreamtime journeys!



Enjoy!

Love the night parade.

Yep, I got all of the Brookfield zoo ones too. I always got burned cause I couldn't wait til they cooled to hold them up and sniff them!

I am in love with the hairless bunny. Can't wait to see what you do with him. I might need him!

I agree completely

Maybe, build to it, not on it... Found objects have multiple meanings.

Ken, if I'm right (and I always am) "Arrival of the Pineapple King" was the first painting you posted here on this thread. Always great stuff Ken - Squid Wars is turning out awesome.

SOOOOOO-WEET! How very VERY kind of you. It is such a fun piece- Joey is gonna flip out and thrown down some James Brown moves after seeing this one. THANK YOU PALLY! We're gonna have a BLAST up here!

Sorry about your loss of "The Arrival of the Pineapple King." That was always one of my absolute favorites. Hope the new owners feed it, bathe it and give it the love it deserves.

ALOHA, MAN & Mahalo once again~!~!

Andy
