Oh my, would love to see "Night of the Falling Stars" first hand, just to experience its depth in person. Also love the tarot-inspired invite, but I've got a thing for skulls & cannibals. Nice to see your Last Judgment piece again, I've coveted that piece from the moment I first saw it. Amazing work my friend. We hope to see you soon.
Laura

YAAAAAAAY!
the numbers are in and......
the masses agree....
Hermit-mode 12-hour days for 3 days in the studio is GOOD!
YAAAAAAAAAAY!

G-Thanks my friend!
been called a lot of things,but never a MONSTER!
thy proper term is MACHINE...
an ever-toiling,ever seething,soulless assemblage of cold metallic parts
bent only on creating art....

marshmallow ground sounds YUMMY!
Haven't thought of the kid's book in a while..
it requires something called SPARE TIME
been trying to collect up some surplus for the past few years
it'll happen...
maybe i'm already finished with it
but decided to hold it back til the movie and licensing deals come thru...
or not!


AND-EEEEEEEEE!
thanks mang!
a couple of more weeks,brother!
Been blessed with productive happy creative time lately...
Skeletal Moais..... got a few studies for them in the sketchbook...
will have to develop them soon....

Mango-stoked you like the Polynesian take on the Tarot....
mahalos for the niceties!
It's going to be exciting to see what the other artists do with this theme....
All these different heads and hands
geared towards one common goal.....
ya gotta love it!

Bowana....okay!okay! just a few more lines of type....

Java Loa-
Thank you for the enthusiasm,Laura!
The piece does look sooo much more ALIVE in person.....
i think it's cause the energy is still embedded in there!
If you and the hubbster are around or in Orange,Cali ,in the next week
you can come visit it....it'll be there,keeping me company until it gets shipped!
It was real fun to re-approach the Last Judgement theme
especially from a different angle..
hope to see you chillens soon!


Well,this is strange.....
ken usually never replies to posts until he has something new to show....
Why is he replying to everyone now,right after they post?
That's something Clysdalle would do,not kinny!

Well, actually,my friends..
i DO have something new to post.....
a COLORIZED up version of the DEATH card...
Black and white is soooooo 2008!
so here it is....
WAS just gonna tint it with a sepia
BUT.....
somehow, a big lump of burnt umber acrylic from the previous day
got stuck on my forearm
without my knowledge
and it was 1/2 way dry before i discovered it had smeared
on the bottom half of the drawing!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
So..... I just did a few washes and splashes and spatters
and gave it an old looking base
and precede to wash the other colors over it....
two words....GOOD SAVE!
phew!
so here it is,in all it's splendor
awaiting a frame....
This guy is influenced by three things....
1)Le Mort card
2) Posada and his Calaveras
3) the skull glyphs from the Codex Nuttail(sp?)
(the skull glyphs are probably the same in the other remaining Codexes
but i looked thru that one....)


That is all!
Thank you!


MAW! What's fer dinner?

Because I'm lazy, I'm just gonna ask what you've probably already answered:

"Are you gonna sell complete tarot card decks?" 'cause that would be cool.

I'm also loving the "night of the falling stars" painting, but I've always been a "sucker" for a good cephalopod painting.

Good save

I'm liking the PolyPop Tarot cards, I had a hard time visualizing how that would turn out. Great kavakavamoai!

EDIT- didn't mean to put my big banner here

Great colorized version of the Death card, Ken!
You could probably whip out the whole deck before I even start on my card!

Hello! Hello!
Thank you
Slacks
Robb
Mike
Bill
and Rick!
Cephalopods and Tarot cards...
the people demand them!


Personally, i WON't be working on a whole deck of these
unless i can get a sugardaddy to pay my salary for 1/2 a year!
Hank SHOULD release a whole deck based on the show
but again...these things cost money
and a much more valuable commodity...time!

Anyways...idle hands are the devil's playground
so i kept em busy with this....
an altered study of one of my favorites from the SDMA Oceanic Arts exhibition...
"Aripa Female Figure"
ink and water-soluble pencil on Aquarelle Watercolor paper


that's it!
I'm outta here!
Thanks for visitin,gang!

KENNY!
So for Hodadhanks Super Spook-tacula tiki-Tarot Art show you drew the DEATH CARD!
IT's SOOOOOOOOOOOOO COOL!!!!!!!!
Whow-zer! AND YOUR FREAKING FINISHED ALREADY!
I'm still thinking about how to vaguely visualize my card (I drew the Magician-yippee my favorite major arcana tarot card!)
Is till gotta go get a 20 x 10 canvas.
Or is this a colored sketch for the final version of the Death Card? If so, it's damn beautiful!
a VERY cool take. I see you're using the RIDER Deck for inspiration. OK, I can swing with dat too.
Jeeze! I can't believe you're done ALREADY!

If you would just shower every night you wouldn't have leftover burnt umber stuck to your arm
