Hey LLT.

The lighting on those Moai is amazing - kinda fluid or chrome-like; very effective. The finished one is the Biz however. How big is that particular character? Those dots must drive you, er... dotty!?

Have a good New Years! Tama

Hey Hewey and Tama!
I kinda dropped that piece for a few because it was driving me "dotty"! Plus i was graced with a visit to the studio from none other than that world famous monkeyboy CHONGOLIO!
Here's a pic of randy uke-ing it up at the cave....

Lotsa fun! what a great guy with all that knowledge and stories galore!!!!
Got to work on the surfboard yesterday before the MUGOOMBA party and most of the day Friday whilst waiting at the studio for CHONGO! Here's some progress pics!





There you have it! Just more lighting and shadow and outlines! Well, it's almost midnight so I will skeedaddle and join the New Year's festivities with the family!
On a parting note, here's a little scratchboard piece I scratched out today!
it's the "Sad-Eye Moai" from the other painting! He would make a great mug for those "Cryin to the Midnight Hour" drinking bouts!

Happy New Year Tiki Central! May the coming year bring you Tropical Winds,
Thrift Store treasures,and Mai-Tais aplenty!

Nice nice nice, good to see the creative types are still creating even though it's holiday time. Driving urges pay no heed to statutory holidays! One thing I noticed now I'm a proud member of the LLT owner's club, is how all those little stick-like lines you use for tone and colour shading merge nicely when you step back a ways from the painting. Do you walk away from the piece often while you're painting it to get it to work like this?

Hey Paipo!
Like that little Butamay (did I say that right?) Yes! The Holidays are one of the few times a year I can abandon work,family, and friends for days at a stretch and CREATE!!!!
Many of you artists will agree that while creating, it feels right and you feel right and normal....Or maybe you're all mentally healthy and don't feel that! I'd like to hear your thoughts and other artist's musings on that! That "stick-like"
lines for tone and shading are built up over the initial blended and painted ground.It brings the fuzziness of the background more to the foreground into a clear closeness. Basic optical blending.Another fun thing is WHAT colors you use next to each other...That can cause major POP! and movement!It's all old hat now! look at Seurat,the Impressionists, Kandinsky's and Klee's utilization of color,I'm just pushing and nudging it forward, like artists are apt to do so we don't get bored!About everyhour or two I'll back up 10 feet then 20 feet from a piece and test the painting. I've been doing this for about 15 years, so you don't have to back up as much as the results of the color application are like a formula now! Certain pieces grab you from across a room and are a bit unrecognizable until you get about 5 feet away and all the hidden treasures are revealed! Or it may look better 20 feet away and the closer you are doesn't matter 'cause you've already "read" the image from a distance...But yes, I do back up and also squint,look at it in a mirror,etc....It doesn't seem to matter with your art. it's either "close" or "way close-up" !
Love my pendants! I've been wearing them to all the tiki events! The Crying Ku is my favorite! Those eyes!!!!

He does have a total Nixon nose! Or Bob Hope nose.... People say that when artists paint people,they always end up with some of the renderer's features. I was granted one of them ski-slope Bob Hope kinda noses and hence the features on Sad Eye Moai!
You really need to get Photoshop,TeaKey! With that program and your devious criminal brain, who knows what wonders you could birth!

Hey, that is the most bad-ass surf machine I have ever seen. I would hate to get that bent over some coral, but love it on the cover of a surf magazine.

If anyone here is given the chance to visit LLT's studio you would be a sucker #1 to pass it up. Ken is one heckuva a great dude and the beauty and complexity of his creativity and artwork cannot be grasped through simple pictures. I was blown away by the detail, color and number of pieces he has pumped out over the years. My visit to his studio was one of the highlight of 2006 for me and I am ever so grateful that he invited me over for a visit. I am way stoked to call Kinny a pal and feel very fortunate to have found another kindred creative soul who will willingly share his knowledge so freely. No really, one day was not enough to take in all his work or tap into the vast database of artistic wonderment that is locked in that crazy skull of his. Here are a few snaps from his studio. If you want to see more of my photos of LLT's art and more of my road trip south, including the "Breakdamug" ceremony at Magoomba, blink on over to Baregfoot bloggin'. Thanks again Little Lost Tiki for hostin' a travelin' monkey and introducing him to your freinds and creative world.

More kick ass art than you can shake a sumi ink pen at.

I'm with Granny Boris. Surf board be damned. What this place needs is a good throw pillow!

Forget the throw pillows... get Granny Boris to sew up some cushion replacements for that couch. The ones on there now are filled with sawdust and pea gravel and give the word lumpy a new meaning;)

That Moai does need to be a mug I dig it! Where do you get the initial surf boards from? All the colors are so beautiful~

I'm still amazed at the amount of detail that goes into those boards. Wow, I'm excited to see more
