Thank you sooo much
LOL
Clarita
Toe
Kiki
and Doug E.
for all the luv!
I'll be sure to spread some of it around
Ohana-Style
in Seattle!

We'll be flying out on Thursday!
And will be exploring the Upper NorthWest
unless we encounter some horrific airline tragedy...
and then y'all will regret
that you didn't buy as many LLT paintings as you should have..

Seriously tho, if i croak
contact Mrs LLT via PM and buy something
so she can afford to bury my ashen corpse!


Anyways,on this 150th page
and last art posting
before above-mentioned tragic airline disaster
i will post my four last pieces
for y'all to remember me by!


First painting
"the Cannibal's Brunch"
Cel Animation Vinyl on thick Masonite


This medium dries very fast
so building up the shadows was a breeze
and the final highlights were opague and perfect!
YAY!
Close-up of dat tongue!
lalalalalaaaaaaaaa!


My favorite part of this piece is the sweet way
the victim grasps his attacker's thumb...


"Melanesian Melody"
sharpie and ink on Aquarelle watercolor paper


This one was inspired by the melanesian Shield book from the freaky Boutiki!
Get Yours today!


"the Moai King's Council"
sharpie and ink and water soluble pencil on Aquarelle watercolor paper


I decide to let my Magical Fish sneak into the narrative again..
This time as an important ambassador of the fishes...or something!

Here's the Moai King
discussing important matters ...


Dig the Crazy Drummer!


and here's something that definitely is NOT tiki
but Hey!
If Clysdalle can post non-tiki stuff every other day
i should be able to post something non-tiki
every once in a while,eh?

"Elephant and jungle"
cel Animation Vinyl on masonite


I've always loved elephants
in art and in real life
their mostly gentle nature


their intelligence
their sense of community
even the instances where they deal out some justice to an abusive trainer..

So there you have it,,
my last possible entry..
Thank you Ohana
it has been a pleasure to meet and chat and laugh with you all...

Skip the plane crash and enjoy your trip! So what's the story with the recent use of cel animation vinyl and masonite?

Kinny, enjoy your trip but keep an eye on Woof!

I've been telling you that you pieces are screaming STAINED GLASS now here's your chance. You already have the cel animation vinyl, all you need now is some cellulose acetate and you're set to go!

On 2009-10-20 23:01, LOL Tiki wondered:
So what's the story with the recent use of cel animation vinyl and masonite?


Well,Ro...
This is one of those stories where
after years of putting it off
and half-heartedly listening to fellow artists
there it was!
right there around the corner from the ink brush pens and stuff
at the Art Supply Warehouse in Westminster
waaaay down from the acrylics
there it was!
so i bought some....
Paintpens are good to finish a piece's blackline fast
but the line width is something that needed 2-3 passes
to get that thick thin look
with acrylics
it's not always a solid line
so it was dip-paint-dip-go back over
Carpal-Tunnel friendly technique there!
whereas a paintpen.... no dipping
the lines with Acrylic were 1/2 opaque-half/transparent
BUT!
Cel Animation Vinyl
dries Matte
dries fast
and you can load a LOT of paint on a brush
and unlike enamel
you can clean your brushes with soap and water....
Bought about 6 new colors last week
and was quite pleased with how they CAN work with acrylics
quite well
mixing-wise...
i think the technique of acrylic underpainting thru washes
slight washes of Cel Animation Vinyl
then...
3 seconds after it's dry
a nice opaque blackline
and some opaque "poppy" highlights...
Second query....
What's with the masonite?
Well....
Monkeyman commissioned a painting
and so
as part of the payment
He cut 11 16x20 panels of masonite
whilst visiting at the CHOP!
He is the Clown king of Tools!

Of course, Toe was there and mooched 2 panels
So he owes me those..
(Hopefully, he'll paint something purdy on em...)
Oh yeah...
and a surfboard...
almost forgot about that...
and close to $10 for that Honkin tube of Naples Yellow..
Watch that guy
if you lend him something
GET IT IN WRITING!

What a MAROON!


so, if said airplane crashes on the way TO or FROM Seattle
i would like one of those 2 panels to contain a commemorative LLT portrait
Have him give that surfboard to Clysdalle
so he can practice on it
and get good someday...
and the $10 can be split amongst the 1-3 people
who weep at the funereal...

That is all!
luv ya mean it!

How DARE you sir! YOU sir are NO GENTLEMAN

i did not MOOCH those panels, you begrudgingly OFFERED them to me.

And on that SURFBOARD, i have OFFERED you TWO boards, which you have rejected...ONE of which i gave to Clysdale (sic). i do owe you for the jumbo bucket o' Naples Yellow...which i cherish. i take umberage (raw or burnt) to the characterization of a Maroon...i would use the term shiftless chisler.

Toe
you shiftless chiseler...
Duel at noon...

the real stuff contains lead and glass and other stuff
no phony baloney Stained Glass in this hut!

You two kids play nice!

I love the cel animation vinyl yer using,
it gives your recent pieces a newer pop to it;
I'm diggin' it!


I really like that elephant,
you should do more animals in that stained glass style
explore new ways of seeing them - do a tiger next!

I wish I could go to Seattle again, I miss the Nazzal Familia!
Especially lil Joey and his Knock-knock jokes & james brown moves
Give them a big hug from me!

Have a safe trip & fun in Seattle!
no dying in planes,
yer not allowed!

Yes I visited the inner sanctum, some describe it as the outer reaches of a parallel universe - last Saturday. I was personally invited to Kinny's studio and yeah, its a museum albeit a crazed-beatnik wonderland of multiple-personality manifestations.

I felt right at home there. Looking around I realized this guy is truly light-years ahead. Ahead of what? - I'm still trying to figure that one out

All of Kinny's art I saw, in person, has a certain charm, wonder and mystique about them that's difficult to describe unless you see them up close in-person. Most have the classic Ruzik stained-glass feel to them, which is what I expected. Other works shot a WOW! bolt from my cerebrum as I stood face to face, in awe, with THOSE panels. But when Kinny brought out some hidden portfolios filled with art the jig was up. The stuff I saw in those portfolios prove Kinny is a mod wizard of color, texture, storytelling and technique. Fantastic! To spend time with this wizard talking art, talking technique and just plain talking trash...it all adds up to a glorious afternoon never to be forgotten.

Before I forget to mention your description of me as 'indomitable' in a prior post is much appreciated, I want to say Thanks Kinny for being a gracious host. Till next time...
