Too much good stuff to digest in one sitting!



Toothless Cannibal

When you translate the shrunken head bowl into 3D, you can flop the hair "ponytails" into the bowl. "Excuse me bartender, there's a hair in my bowl!"

HowdyLoha y'alls!
Just got back from a trip to the Homeland
in Illinois and MAN! the Boy is recharged!
aaaaaaaaaaand..in the name of curiosity AND mild-agitation
i OPTED OUT of the big oppressive TSA machines every airport
and got to inform the TSA about how FBI Headquarters and Israeli airports
do NOT use these machines,but instead use roving bomb and drug sniffing dogs...
Now WHY izzat? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm?
Anyways it was kinda fun and intimidating at the same time
Orange County has NOT ONE shred of humor when it comes to TSA agents..
But St. Paul Minnesota and Bloomington airports have a bunch of funny friendly informative TSA fellahs..
i recommend you ALL opt out and get the search...it's a good way to get to know our oppressors....

Anyways... FULLY RECHARGED and ready to work more on the cannibal King

(i recently added the pencil sketch on canvas pix that i thought i had lost
so if you're curious what's UNDER that painting,go back to page 190 and SEE!

i have read in Bilge that some folks are annoyed by the big quotes from previous posts before answering ...
Well...that's how i keep track of the comments and can answer them to their fullest......
it's how this thread rolls as of recent,and much easier for me....
and when you're posting a BUNCH of new art,it gets confusing enough...
Soooooo if you don't prefer it
then please just proceed straight to the art...

Thank you,

Jonesy!
Thanks for the visit!
Glad i could bring a smile to your face! it makes my heart warm just thinkin about it!
YES! it is normal and it is intended ..
If a painting doesn't bring joy,or happiness,or amazement,then i say throw it out!
We need to chat soon about unfinished paintings,so whenever you're ready old friend....

Hi Wendy!
Been gettin into the birdys and crocs lately..
There was so much nature and animals to see in Illinois...most certainly this love of animals and foliage
will trickle into the work very soon! Thank YOU Wendy,for being such a constant inspiration and friend!
I wish All of us artists could love and share our work as much as you do! See you soon,Beautiful!
Love that Spy piece! Can't wait to see how Otto turns out! the second round seems to be off to a good start!
Hugs to you and Dan!

Thanks MD!
Love your pistol....you always come in at the most obtuse angle and then just NAIL it!
Glad the toothless Cannibal made you laugh! He's quite the whiner!
Good call on the hair slipping into the bowl!
Someday i would like to be able to make ALL of these fun ideas REAL!

zerostreet! Someday buddy...Someday! You are welcome to crash on the studio couch and save on hotel costs
if you ever get out here....I'll plan an Artjam around your visit!

Well....as i've said
Illinois recharged this BOY
Spent most of the time
relaxing
absorbing
engaging
experiencing
and only did a FEW sketches
but here they are...

an abstract tropical mug design


a couple more mug designs
the upper right one was inspired by the Shag Enchanted Tiki room mug
Noticed that in retrospect..


and here's some actual studies of actual carvings...


please excuse the naughty bits
it IS a female figure...

and my favorite from the batch..


That's all i have for now
BUT!
stay tuned for more Cannibal King progress
and other Surprises!
Aloha Ohana!

Aloha Kenny, I am so happy you are into nature. I'm enjoying your journey so very much. Otto's face is not easy since it's a 3/4 turn but I'll not give up. Your portrait had that twinkle in the eye quality that was so fun to capture. Dear friend I'm looking forward to Dan taking a photo of my Kenny hugs. I'm looking forward to your surprises coming up here. Cheers, Wendy

Dammit LLT I just cannot keep up with you... yer some kinda tiki whirlwind or somethin'

Yes please do keep me in the loop if you ever get an art book done.

I am hoping to go to the Tiki Kon here in Portland if I can afford it, so hopefully I will see some of your art in person. Never been to any Tiki major "do" before, and would love to go... have to wait and see what happens.

Congratulations Kenny on another work of art going out to be treasured by all your fans. It's so special to have Holden turn your paintings into mugs and decanters. Less than two weeks and I'll get my Kenny hugs, ((((((:::: Wendy

That's this week! Starting Thursday night at ElroyArt! Hope you can get there!
Just mingling and talking with other artists can be a well-needed boost!
plus you don't feel so alone and crazy!
