HOLY COW!!!! That looks very interesting but way to much for me to digest in one sitting. I love the rare chances like this when we get a glimse into your evil genius mind. The result is as FANTASTIC as the process is mind-boggling!

Congrats to you both!

OK, first of all I would have never been able to get an Alaska image out of my mind "There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold"
I don't have any art training so I was intrigued by the diagonals in your grid, is that better?
Great job of giving a night-time feel while the sun is shining brightly. BRAVO!

PS Can you tell Ravenne to PLEASE make those cats stop licking each other!!!!

EDIT - looks like you Pickled the Beast! I couldn't find that clip on YouTube so here is my favorite clip from that movie instead -

FRIG!

What a wonderful essperience watching your sketches/ideas develope!

Really, that was super-cool to see happen, Ken. I've never seen your concept sketches like this before (naturally they have the same messy-maestro genius as the rest of your output).

SHAZAM!

got a short step-by-step of a new piece "the Sunshower"

but first....
regan-thank you! The pineapple fields turned out nicely
and I'm glad you think so too!We'll have to have a picnic there sometime!
I will begin offering prints up next week at the TJO CD release party exclusively
They will be 12x12 on a nice hearty matte stock
and they will be signed and numbered in a limited edition of 25
and i think i'm gonna be offering them for $20 apiece...
After the CD Release i will begin to offer them to the "general public"
(ie: here and Facebook)
Remember kids.... I don't offer up prints too often
but if this small run does well
then i will contact Mr. Wickedly
about doing another small run of somethin...
I would like these to not only provide you all with years of enjoyment
but also would like you all to have the chance to get "in" on a small run of prints
and the potential value it may accrue...
You guys don't know how many artist friends of mine have told me
1) to do more than 25 prints (50 they say!)
2) to charge more for them....
Fergit that!
You have all been so wonderful and supportive and inspirational
I couldn't see fleecing y'all like that!
maybe those other guys want your money for the least amount of product
but not me,LLT!
I respect and love you all too much!


Mike-Thank you for reading and plodding thru my creative journey under the Midnight Sun!

Jason-YAY! i think it's about time you tackled a CD cover for someone,eh?

Dawn!AGGROCROWDOPHOBIA FOREVER!
you need to bust out some step-by-steps,my girl!

Robb-yeah,those concept sketches are fast and furious
more about ideas and feelings than actual content...
Sometimes they shoot thru my head so fast it's hard to jot them down!
Not even Kraken Rum can slow it down
(and i can attest to that,just finishing a drunken birthday weekend!)
Glad to see you're up to tackling another painting....
That Moai of yours has a real grand feeling to it so far!.SHAZAYAM!

alrightio!
Last weekend when we was all artjammin
Carolyn,Stacy,and Hinano "huggybear" Paul popped by the studio
with monkeypods,space needle ashtrays,and a Bamboo Ben piece
they wanted me to embellish....

it looked like this!


not wanting to obliterate ben's work completely
i grabbed some gesso and painted in Flowers,palms.and a Sun!


i kinda winged it,but when you wing these kind of pieces
they usually don't disappoint!
After the gesso was dry, i addded some blue shadows to begin developing some depth.

From there ,i began to lay in washes of other colors to their prospective objects
(ie: red for the Hibiscus,etc.)

Close-ups!






after all of that,i added some olive motifs to Ben's background
and after all those washes...began some black for the outlines....






And here it is..... Finished!

"Sunshower"
acrylic and cel vinyl on wooden Bamboo Ben framed creation


Thanks for the visit!

Sweet embellishment! Bamboo Ben frames and your art
are a great combo.

Drive-By!
RIGHT in the muddle of a painting jam
but thought i would share!

Markusk-
Thanks for the audible approval,friend!
if i ever end up in Berlin
i will trade you room and board for some art!

Jason-first off....thank you so much for your visits and steadfast encouragement
You and Claudette are A-1 in my book and truly Walk the Walk! Hugs!

lennie!-Thank you my dear! and thank you for your inspiration by example
you are livin the dream,dear!

Clarita-thank YOU! Sending some waves of until our future picnic!

Was inspired by a Moai in the Kahiki that i saw on page 146 of the Book of Tiki..
and Squid came by last Sunday and brought me some watercolor paper
with one page with the colors and tissue paper stain already thrown down!
so it was collaboration time
with Squid on the background colors and kinny on the art!
YAY!
i love unexpected opportunities such as this!

so i started a few sketchbook pages full of studies
then went straight to the paper..
and got this far...



and said (about 11pm last night)
"Why aint i doin this on one of them BooBen frames i got last week at his Hut?"
doi-yoi-yoi....
PICKLES!

so i jammed til 4 in the morn on this baby!
(got to watch "The Road" whilst painting.. What an incredible,moving film!
my favorite Post-Apocalyptic film as of today!)
Slept a few hours.... got up
and had a lil more studio time on this puppy
listening to Tiki Joe's Ocean's Under the Midnight Sun
that i just got in the mail
and soaking up a Tropical Moontan!
so here it is
as of a few minutes ago....


and a close-up...


will start on some shadowing soon
and then this baby will start cooking!
mmmm!
cooked baby....

Have a wonderful day and enjoy the sun for me!
i will haunt the batcave/studio of solitude
and create some more magic!
Aloha!
