Squid and Doug are flying to Seattle, and Kinny is taking his usual mode of transportation.

No dying in a plane crash, for Pete's sake! Jeeez! Don't forget, if we lost you, we'd cry a bit and all get on with life. If we lost Squid and Doug, there would be weeping and rending of clothes, pandemic grief, a new world order - we would never recover! So please! No more talk of crashes. By the way did you find yourself a groovy cardigan to wear "up North"? See ya at the next Phil Shane you boring old coot!

And when are you going to make some real stained glass? It's really fun if you can be trusted with glass cutting tools and soldering irons.

Have fun!!!!
XO,
KvT

Aloha Tiki Central Ohana!
Oh how i missed you while immersed in Wooden Tiki Art Land!
I finished the "Wooden" side of the Wood vs Metal/Natural vs Mechanical Tiki Surfboard and it turned out fairly satisfactory...But before i post those, I should respond to some of the comments since our last Art posting....
Paipo!
Did you get my package yet? Hope so! It was blank on Thursday night-and i left the studio that evening around 1:30 and the rough undersketch and base colors in acrylic were sealed and drying when i left....the next day I got as far as what I had posted...Since then, I worked about 2 hours on it until Thursday night again when I busted out the rest-sealed it-left for home around midnight,then totally finished it between 9am to midnight...Not straight working tho! Entertaining visitors,watching some Samurai Jack episodes,reading a bit....so prolly about a good 5-7 hours on it-add a few more for the sealant drying between coats and it's Saturday and that side is dry-photographed-and forgotten in favor of the metal mechanical robot tiki on the other side! Don't cue the face melt animation yet,my brother....Save that for the Robot side!

Whaaaaaaa....? Love your Brain man! Thanks for the rant....Now less rant and more carving!
Mister Gambino,
Thank you! Glad you are delighted with the work! I know you know the feeling of labouring over a piece of art. I imagine we both are faster painters than the other realizes! That new Easter Island painting of yours is really spellbinding! The colors,the sense of Mystery,the font,you've created a whole world, a dialog, a context that is consistent and always amazing! You can spot a Gambino painting a mile away! No one can nail it like that! Seeing your work in person at the Tikis and Terrors and Spooky Luau is amazing! How many hours a week do you dedicate to painting? Do you share my fate of having a dayjob or do you just do the art thing all day? I am always waiting to see what the next piece has in store! Always surprising!
Foamy,
That piece is finepoint sharpie on Winsor Newton Watercolor Paper tinted with ink AND watercolor...I think I did one of the colors in a gouache as it faded the black sharpie in areas giving it dat misty feelin! Besides this thread I also have a website with tiki art and MORE!
www.kenruzic.com
I hope you and Sam will check back often as I can't stop and will probably manically post new pieces right up to my nervous breakdown!
TikiShark! Rockit my friend!!! Don't you have a couple of commissions to finish!?!!
Clarita,
Thank you Tiki Friend! I hope this upcoming Robot side won't disappoint!
When are you going to do a Tiki Wax Robot Candle?You have a Great Weekend too!
GROG
Thanks for stopping by.....
Well, anyways...
Here it is! The moment we've all been waiting for!!!! At least the moment I've been waiting for! The finished side of the Wooden Tiki Totem!

Here is a comparison with the original sketch next to the finished surfboard...

As you can see, I can never translate it exactly...There are always little adjustments and changes as the mind turns it over and over until conception....
Alright, here's some close-up Money shots of some of the details!
TOP

MIDDLE

BOTTOM

I Totally Heart this part of the Surfboard!

That face cracks me up every time I see him! That pug nose reminds me of that real fat kid in the really early Little Rascals! Chubsy-Ubsy or Porky or something!
It was a great week for finishing up paintings! Now it's onto the Tiki Robot side....and BEYOND!

I'm surprised ANYBODY would even cry....wouldn't wanna be responsible for a catatonic grief-wave ala DougHorne and Squizz!
well ,the trip was WONDERFUL!
Thanks to TikiJoe'sPop and family for sponsoring us three..
and the good people of Seattle who allowed us to wander amongst them for 5 days.....
If you'd like to view photos of our hi-jinx...

mp-thanks for perusing,my friend!
And quit apologizing about that painting
when it's done it's done....
you do realize that you wasted around 10 minutes with all those apologies...
10 minutes you could have used to FINISH that painting..


BigToe-looks like you've been creeping around the crypt-like labyrinth that is this thread..
That surfboard was finished around 3 years ago
in 2006
and escorted to his new hut about 2 years ago..
Is this a hint to tackle another surfboard?
it IS about time.....

Clarita!-How funny! We've been friends for 3 years! Rock ON!

Jason- I will make more of these..
This one was painted while you were still in RocketScience College a few year's back!
i promise to tackle a surfboard again soon....
Way to go fancying up the tonga Hut with those luscious velvets of yours!!!!

Alrightio!
New works...
3 new paintings and a new drawing (crappily photographed)
2 Tiki-themed
2 not tiki-themed
Y'see, i got's a one man show next year around April/May
and have to show a Wide Range of Subject matter
that encompasses this 20 year hobby
so expect less Tiki
and other weird stuff to fill in those gaps...
i will try to retain a high caliber of quality on the Tiki works
since there will be less of them...

If you do find yourself Jonesing for more LLT tiki work
there's 151 pages of it RIGHT HERE!
so no whiners,okay?

First off... found a frame for "the cannibal's brunch"
Nice and weathered,plus it picks up the natural and grayish hues
and plays off the cannibal's blue too!


here's the one i crappily photographed...Better shot later!
"the Skull Dance"
ink and colored pencil on Aquarelle Watercolor paper

Something about the PNG shield with the skulls
seems to have grabbed my drawin hand...

This piece has some metallic gold sumi ink in spots
makes it hard as Hannah to shoot...
hello PNG boy!


Here's a happy lil skull laying in the flowers



"Moon,Forest,and Snake"
acrylic/cel animation vinyl/colored pencil on board
with a frame my sister bought me for my birthday!


As you can see in these recent abstract stained glass styled pieces
Experiment is the order of the Day..
This one i played with the depth of the leaves in the trees
AND used a white outline as well as dark shading (colored pencil)
in certain areas to lift certain planes off the surface...

LEAFUS!


more LEAFUS!


SNAKE!


Here's another non-tiki piece
but you may recognize these SEA MONSTERS
as they've been harassing a few of the characters in previous pieces...
"the Hungry Sea Monsters"
acrylic and Cel Animation Vinyl on masonite


This one's goal was to create a choppy ocean


as well as showing a fleeing school of fish


both above and below the water..


dunno if i completely succeeded but
it still turned out funny!!

this painting was a lotta fun from both a challenging aspect
a narrative aspect (big fish eat little fish,etc.)
and a textural and depth experimentational approach...

Last piece was YET ANOTHER different approach to the stained glass abstract style...
Damn this curious brain! it can never be happy with just ONE style...
sigh..
Anyways, this painting was interesting and a BLAST
because it started as a VERY ROUGH underpainting...


Then after some layering of some Raw Umber to mold some of the objects
and get a sense of light in a jungle valley undergrowth..
i began the blackline..
traversing into the unknown....
not knowing if this would turn out good
or HORRIBLY AWFUL!



But... fortunately...it turned out pretty cool
with a look SLIGHTLY different from some of the other experiments...
"the Silent Valley"
acrylic and Cal animation vinyl on masonite...


i threw some tapas on the skulls
so it looked like they were carved and then presented to the shield
for some strange ritual or celebration....


Smile for the digital camera...


Christmas is.... RIBS!


Skull in the upper seats of the stadium...




Here's me favorite..
He's got afern growin outta his eye!
Crazy Skullboy!



That's it for now,friends...

y'know I'm really diggin' the white outlines on this piece.
It's got such a "out of this world" look compared to your usual stain glass pieces.
I really hope you experiments more with the white outlines,
it could really trip people out

THE NOMNOMNOM FRENZY!
If you ever did this particular piece in 3D
you will definitely esplode some brain meats everywhere
Just by looking at it right now it gives you the impression that it's moving
I can almost hear the sea monsters attacking the poor fishies...
SWIM FISHIES SWIM!

Crazzzzy details Ken! Ravers is right about the white outline, very cool. Gives the snake a ghost-like transparent feel.
