Good stuff LLT. Your art is pleasing, unoffensive, and decorative.

Weeks of waiting and that's all I get?????

Notice the similarity between the heavy helmet and Karnak's turban. Coincidence? I think not!

Hey Mike!
here's some more stuff i've been a workin on...
and
I won't even post the experimental collages
more Blake studies
or the skateboard deck i just finished for an upcoming show...
maybe later on those....
heavy helmet and Karnak's turban?
don't see it...
sorry!


Clarita-Gracias my friend!
I think the Pablo Payaso phase is finally over...
phew!

First off...
two vertical masonite panels ..
Trying to figure out a way where i only have to paint HALF a painting...
if i can figure out this lazy experiment
maybe we can get GROG to paint more!

Finished this one at TikiG's chop a few weeks back!
" Cannibal King with mood swings"
cel vinyl on masonite panel


SEE, THE COOL THING About these is you paint half
then place next to a mirror and VOILA!
two WHOLE paintings out of two HALF paintings!
WHOA!


Manic Cannibal King!


Depressive Cannibal King!



Next piece is yet another abstract/experimental piece..
Playing with three large brushstrokes of olive/mustard and orange over a dk teal-y ground..
and built up from there....
I wanted to have the landscape looking out from a shady jungle/forest
and wanted to play with the lighting and whatnot...
So these funny little unoffensive PNG shield fellows
on a morning stroll
suddenly stumble across
"the Burial Place"
cel vinyl on masonite..
Not sure if it's done yet....


DEETS!


This one was just for fun and learning.. I think it's done
may deepen the lighting a bit in the future...

This next piece is my offering for the Poly-blend show
that will be at Hukilau and sponsored by the totally hip Harold Golen Gallery..
the theme is to capture the NON-Oceanic influences of Poly-Pop
Spanish/African/etc...
in response to the challenge
Decided to do some simplified studies of African masks
in that old-timey layout and style..
I'll get a better shot after i find a frame..
there's sanding and paint scratched out
to add some texture and depth to the piece
"African masks"
Cel vinyl ,acrylic,and paint pen on masonite


This theme was so fun and fresh
i may do a few more just for meself!


Also, if you've been out of the loop...
Been working on a 3x4 foot "Theseus and the Minotaur"
based on a tissue paper stain and ink on paper drawing from awhile back...
Finally figured out how to transfer that tissue paper stain to canvas with paint!
PHEW!
This will be one of the showcase pieces for an upcoming one-man show this summer....


Here's some details to show how i nailed that tissue paper stain look!
so STOKED about that!



Note the shifting movement of the feet and arms
as well as the side/frontal views of the heads...
kind of a futurism meets cubism meets mild mental illness
kind of...

"What's that gotta do with Tiki,LLT?" ,you ask....

Well, funny you should ask...
I'm working on a Tropical piece for the wife for valentine's Day
and this technique is being used.....

First step...
lay the tissue paper over the masonite..
use acrylic or cel vinyl to wet it onto the surface...

if it's a blue piece
tint it with blue...etc...
yellow stains on blue will give you a greenish tint
so experiment and find out what works for you....
Note how bright it is...
we are transferring it onto a piece of camel brown masonite...
so it will dull it down to a nice pallette
Like so!


After that dries
i began a drawing in cel vinyl
of a butterfly
with a hawaiian Warrior's head
bringing the morning
to a misty tropic valley village....
here's my progress sp far....




by going over the color i can bring things to the foreground
or let them soak into the misty background..

Will tackle the subtle lighting and butterfly wings today....

Well.....
after a 13 hour jag and clocking about 300 hours on art already this year
i leave you with a late night studio shot

and a wish to you all
to have a Happy Valentine's Day!
smoochies!




Hah!?

Well worth the wait there Ken!
Love all the Cannibal Heads, and the Burial Place
has great atmosphere. My favorite of this batch is definitely
the African Masks. Really dig the dark line and how it gives
the piece a multi-plane layer effect. Makes the colors pop more.
Great tissue paper demo too! Looks like fun.
Wondered what happened to the Minotaur piece.
The colors on that one look superb so far.
More!

The tissue paper is a great medium - really soaks up the color and disburses it. I love the Minotaur theme as well - reminds me of "The Lovers" (I think that's what it's called) by Klimnt (sp?). Beautiful, as usual!
