Yay! The Babalu/Ruzik large platter is done! Nice collaboration, gents.

Four months ago I watched Babalu work on this at Tiki Oasis in San Diego

Two months ago I saw the platter again while visiting LLT's studio in Orange

(oh yeah, the other pieces shown are nice too)

Thanks for sharing, Kinny

Wow! I'm flabbergasted! You are one busy guy! For some reason the opening in the Gecko/Paipo piece is strangely sexy! I LOVE the Maori pieces you did too! So much movement and fun. I'm quite moved by the Sleepwalker. I'm going to have to study that one some more. The MP contribution and all your comments had me laughing for quite a bit. Another good day for laughter!

Ken!

It was nice talking story with you last week during the snowstorm. Now I can see the pieces you spoke of and they are impressive!

Soooo much good stuff! The "stained glass" will remain my favorite style of yours and the "Sleepwaker" is a powerful example of that style. And "Greed" is so cool

I love when you get involved in 3D projects, they always turn out so great! The Little Lost Babalu platter would make some PNG chief very proud to have it hanging on the wall of his hut. I must admit that the Birdman had me confused



I couldn't figure out what this was - maybe his butt crack? Then I realized it's the opening to the mug (I'm not too bright)

Keep poundin' the paint Kinny!

Sneaky!

Thanks for the visit Art BRO!
more Boccioni's 'Unique Forms of Continuity in Space' than
Duchamp's 'Nude Descending a Staircase'...
Capturing slow graceful movement in this style is a little bit tricky.
This figure originally started many years back
in a sketchbook entry
of Moses hiding in the cleft of a rock wall
while God walks by.
(Moses is only allowed to view Him from the back)
The figure used in that was stretched and given a lighter step...
and that's the story on that....

TikiG-Yeah... I think your visit is what finally kicked the platter into gear!
Chop next month!

Bead!
The flash made it a lot lighter..
and yes... that was the first thing i noticed when i opened the box and checked out the bisque....
i may actually do a few more washes in there..
The inside was supposed to capture that time on the island
when tribes were warring
and most folks hid in caves
deep in caves
and drew faces of Make-Make on the walls
and hoped for salvation...
but it DOES look like a healthy back-end
if viewed in the right light....
Thanks for the company,bead!
Yours and Carl's shirts are on there waaaaaaaaaaay!


LakeSurfer-Yes Sir!
Great chattin with you!
Feeling sooo blessed to have so many artist friends around the globe....
Makes life an interesting adventure....
it's always nicer to have a visual reference
especially when talking art....

MadDogMike
There's a couple more 3-D pieces calling from afar
I'll tackle em as soon as i can corral em in!
I'm definitely going to have to darken that
before sending it back to Gecko!

Mahalos to all y'alls fer drivin up fer a spell!


More soon!
in fact... i have a 4-panel Journey/Rower commission
that's needing some attention...starting.....TONIGHT!

Killer collaborations Ken!

Love all the new pieces especially
"the Approaching Storm". Fantastic colors!
Looks like you're enjoying working with
animation cel vinyl a lot!

Great job on the Tees too!

So many your designs would make killer patterns for
Aloha wear! Reyn and others would be stupid not to
throw gobs of mullah at you! I say for 2010 and beyond
The 'Ken Ruzic Kollection' by....

Jason!
Hello to you and Claudette!
Thank you for peeking your head in!
that cel vinyl paint is a Blast!
Just bought 20 new tubes on Monday
so i am committed!
may do a few more "Approaching Storm" style pieces...

and those collaborations were the Funnest!
Still have a couple more,so check in from time to time...

Haven't really pursued the whole fabric print thing...
Still kinda burnt out from doing SOOOOO many for Rusty and HIC
back in the day...
But who knows?
I'm calling YOU doing a big back hit
of one of them lovely wahines
on a black woven shirt..
or black ties!
Now that would be awesome!
big hugs to you
and bigger ones for Claudette!


Sai-Baba!
Get back from Cold-oraro
and lets get this baby dialed up!
So happy you like it!
Thanks again for letting me play on one of your platters!
truly an honor....

Welpers
I finally got permission from the patron to share this with you...
It's a logo for her newly-to-be-released Clothing line for LADIES!
The goods are being hand-made as we speak over on
the beautiful island of Kauai
and should break
round the beginning of the year...
YAY Lennie!!!!

The name of the Brand is "La Vida Aloha"
and after a brainstorm
we went with a Calavera/Posada-inspired Hula Girl....
I tried to suggest Clysdalle for the job
but i guess she decided it was my turn to exploit this genre....
or maybe she just wanted a calaca with better teeth and more anatomically correct...

I usually don't take many logo jobs and stuff
as they get on my nerves
(both the job AND client)
But Lennie is a sweetie and a good friend
soooooooooo........
Here it is....


This design will make it to t-shirts sometime in the future
I'm thinkin a faded rainbow bleed,maybe a light distress over it eventually
so it reeks old school Hawaii....
Like this....


also made an option of just the head of our calavera Hula girl..
i like the bottom option better,but whatever Lennie decides to go with.....

That's it for now...
Just thought I'd share.....
Love Ya!
Mean It!

Laugh it up Chucklehead!



if you were paying attention,Mike
I have only done two Calavera type projects.....
Both were suggested to me
not my ideas.....
the Death card for the Tikot Invitation
and the Calavera Hula Girl...
the patron's always right...

AND if you haven't noticed...
they fit a lot more into the Tiki theme
than Kustom Kulture...
so Nyah!
