Kinny, the tissue paper technique worked out good - very true to the water color style. But "Theseus and the Minotaur" is just too much for my little brain to process

Awesome work Mr.KR! Lovin' all the heads, bi-polar or not. The Geek piece with the Minotaur is simply wonderful.

Omigawrsh!
What a surprise to find all these friends visiting
while i painted away another day!


Jason.... that fire guy you just finished has just upped it a notch!
BLAMMO!
Thanks for all the encouraging observations
It's always nice when your path can be understood by other artists...
The African Mask was really fun..
a neglected valid part of poly-pop history that you velvet kids should HOP ONTO!
Fire!

Reagan!
Ah Klimt!
His rich decorative lustrous paintings!
i have some more progress on the tissue paper piece so scroll down,kiddo!
when you gonna finish and post that "special project " you been workin on?


Hey Badd!
Thanks for the visit
cel-vinyl is also called cel animation vinyl
it's what animators use to paint the animation cels
it's opaque and covers practically anything!
it mixes well with acrylics
and washes up with soap and water
and it dries FAST and MATTE!
you should go cheggitout!
all the cool kids are using it!


MadDoggie,
sorry you can't handle the higher art pieces
i'll post a warning before i post anymore pieces like that....
we need your brain around here for a looong time!


MANGO!
miss you man!!!
those heads were painted when we called you at the CHOP!
the GEEK piece!?!?!?
true dat....


Bowie!
Skulls ! SKULLS!
RUN! RUN!
THE WARPIGS ARE COMING!
Big heavy Helmets are in the air,eh?


TikiG!
Hey!
Mango and i were just talking about you...
scroll down and i'll share the final results of the tissue paper experiment!
Thanks for all the cheerleading and warm posts...
you kids are my Valentines!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Here's the finished piece
"Greeting the Dawn"
cel vinyl and acrylic on masonite
lovingly cut by Derek monkeyman!


Here's the village in the early morning mist...


I've grown quite close with that distant jungle on this side of the piece....

Closer....


That's it for Tiki stuff..
but Hey! it's valentine's Day
so here's some extra work
I've been grinding over
both with hands and brains..

First off..
a clown piece i forgot to post...
it was Dave:s Not Home's beeday present
so i had to hold it back...
But here it is...
and i promise...
NO MORE CLOWNS!
for now...
"the Parade"
ink,colored pencil and tissue paper stain on watercolor paper


here's a detail from the "African mask" painting
took it today-just fer YEW!


Also,have been working with collage...
the experimentation and playing with shapes/colors/textures/and composition
are always a welcome remedy for artistic/creative burnout...
I'm also working on a collage portraits of the presidents
but that's top secret for now...
"Disintegration of Time"
collage on masonite,ink


here's some details....




being a designer..
well....we hoard and collect ephemera
like it's going out of style!
I hope to use this technique and paint a Moai OVER it
letting the collage peek thru...

Also worked on and finished a piece for the Rothick gallery's skateboard exhibition
this one is based on an earlier drawing
kind of like the Minotaur piece
That's why Documentation of your pieces is ALL IMPORTANT kids!
"the Reckoning"
acrylic and cel vinyl on gessoed wooden skateboard deck


this painting was influenced by both the art of the Middle Ages AND the desire to create a slyly political piece
(the original drawing /concept is from the last president's term...nuff said!)

Here's a man holding the scales of justice as well as observing the night sky...


Here's the angel coming on down and giving Mr. king a gentle warning with his widdle finger...


and here's the far left of the painting
showing the angel's exit from the cloud,the devil-amazed at his thwarted plans,a microwave tower
and a Medevil Leviathan-like entrance to hell...with a nod to industrial mechanics....


HIGH ART WARNING TO MADDOG MIKE!
here's another study from Blake's "Vision of the last judgement"


this is at the very bottom center
and depicts Satan being bound by two angels....

i loves them feets,Jack!


That's it!
I'm Delirious!
it's late
i'm a stumbling in the brain...
YAWN!
Again... Happy Valentine's Day
may your day be filled with love and giggles!
and Thank you all for the visits!

Thanks Ken, I proceeded very carefully through that section. I did note, however, that if you took the extra feet from the Minotaur and the extra heads from Satan, you could build a couple of extra people

(Great stuff Kinny )

So that's why you didn't come see PHILSHANE with us, eh? Well, I guess we can let it slide since you were making something for your wife for Happy Heart's Day! Next time! XO, Kiki

Wow! Thanks fer the update, Kinny! Cool stuff... I hope it's not blasphemy to say I think I just might like your non-tiki stuff more than your tiki stuff... Only slightly, infinitesimally more, perhaps... What the heck, all yer work is AWESOME!!!

How do these stains make you feel Kinny?




only for you jonesy...


This one brings to mind a cross section of a human
i see shoulder blades/ribs/a pelvis......very strange....
or a brain flower flanked by pink lions...


This one reminds me of a Seahorse family
corralling and protecting its children
from the blue crabs that menace them on both sides....
or it's a cool helmeted supervillian with a red cape and green booties...


this last one is SOLIDLY two seahorses addressing each other
latched onto some coral and gabbing away the day!

Thanks jonesy!
Would like to hear what YOU see in these above three!
I await word on your results and observations...

MadDog!
Yessir! I plan o taking those extra parts
and creating a Hercules wrestling the Nemean lion piece with them...
thankyewverrymuch....

or i may just keep them there to enforce the motion/direction of the figures in the space!
looking forward to your visit,my friend!

beadtiki!-hi regan!
yes...for once Mike is funny.
miss you crazy lady!

kiki!
Yes! I missed the cupid with a mullet Phil Shane
so i could create some Valentine Day happiness!
Happy day to you too!
next time he plays the District...so there!

Jason!
some days/weeks you're just on more of a jag than others...
but truth be told.... that was a backlog of a few weeks
just didn't have my camera battery....
Thanks so much for the pep talk before going back into the ring!
FIRE!!!!
Lovin the inspiration you all share by sharing your work!
Thanks!

hodad!
Hey man!
still funny i see...
Hey!
Group Show-Freaky boutiki-when?
let's do another theme one!
They was fun!

i hope BAdd got my reply
if not,here it is again...

Well...you know....
before doing tiki work for the past 5-6 years
there was 13-14 years of a whole other vocabulary
and it's starting to yawn and awaken again!
The fun thing about art is that it will take you places
new and exciting
as well as familiar
but different old dialogues and ideas
often contain new meaning in a different light
or lightly sprinkled with age..
So i am glad you like and recognize what is happening
evolution...without it there's only stagnation
Onward and Upward,my friend!

now about this putrefied little fellow
"the Over-Ripe Shrunken Head"
ink,sharpie and colored pencil on watercolor paper


had a break this weekend
been doing little pieces on 4 different paintings in process
but somedays that's monotonous
so i figgered
why not kill 2 birds with one stone
get my fresh artfix of something new
and finishe a piece for the Shrunken Head Swap...
that's it...
end of story!
love ya!
mean it!

Your an art animal master lost tiki!

Dude, I'm quite fond of the two croppings in this collage yours...very strong. Either one would make for a killer larger painting in it's own right...loaded with content!
