Aloha Dear Ohana!
Still recovering from the Awesomeness that was
the Mondo Tiki 15 year Anniversary Exhibition!
Here's the thread in the Events Section!
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=50176&forum=17&start=0&25
Here's a link to the la Luz gallery page...
http://laluzdejesus.com/michelle-bickford-mondo-tiki-show/
But...
More of that Later!
have a LOT to share with you kids
So let's chitty-chat with the ohana
and then carry on with some recollections
and an explosion of inspiration...

Well Seagoat! Thank you for attending and joining the festivities...
Was also very grateful to have been able to share the paintings and woodburns...
Blew some minds when the process was unveiled!
Perhaps the NEXT generation of Pyrographers were kindled that evening!

Here's a link to a lil video journey thru the piece....

Well said,Brother!


Okay!
What a NIGHT!
Here are some photos poached from the internets
(i think a lot of them are Adrians...
if one of them is yours,
PM me and i'll give you a credit
or take it down,m'kay?)
i was much too immersed in the evening to take pictures
So many Mahalos to the folks who did capture the event photographically!



I am SO grateful to Holden,La Luz gallery and Staff,
Doug and Toe and Flounder and Michelle
for allowing this crazy scribbler to add to the atmosphere
with his Art...

the enormity of it hit when i got home
and it felt weird
and a deep appreciation of this whole kooky community
covered me like a warm blanket...

Thanks to ALL of you
For your steadfast support
insightful and ridiculous questions and comments
Appreciation when i take a left turn
and to those that Bought a piece from the Exhibition
Mahalo! Your Purchase has helped make our work being on the walls
a positive and profitable venture for the gallery.
Thank you for loving the work enough to adopt it...
That means a lot
i hope your investment in this historical event
gives you great joy every time you gaze upon your acquisition!
If any of you readers would like to grab a piece of the action
There are still plenty of masterworks at affordable prices
by all Five of us artists!
http://laluzdejesus.com/michelle-bickford-mondo-tiki-show/

and THANK YOU ALL for
all those hugs....wow.

Toe and Audrey drove Aimee and i up
and our first stop was the Tiki Ti!

Met up with some interesting and jolly Pals!

Here we are,pre-show
hopped up on Bloody Tikis
Toe was wearing his birthday Suitcoat...
and there was even CAKE!

This is going to be to be our Publicity shot
as we audition for a CLASH tribute band!
That's our manager on the right..


With our Buzz-on,we proceed to La Luz...

Fancy banner!


Pure Craziness!
Our Special limited Edition mugs SOLD OUT!


how NUTS is that?
Scott and Michelle still have some Anniversary mugs available!
Hop on it,Folks!
http://laluzdejesus.com/michelle-bickford-mondo-tiki-show/

The Place was PACKED!
Had to retreat to the Bookstore section and out back to chain-smoke
Many a delightful exchange
and ideas were a born that night!


Amidst the Chaos,they were able to wrangle us hossies up for a nice shot!
many Kudos to holden,the TikiFarm crew,
and Boo Ben for creating an Unforgettable Atmosphere!


Here's one of the walls with some woodburns and BooBen framed pieces!


Here's the other wall slightly obscured
by yours truly and the mad frame carver Derek MONKEYMAN Weaver!

It was a thrill to be able to get HIS handiwork on la luz's walls!
And what better final flourish to a painting
than it's frame?
Especially such a personalized one...

And the GREATEST PART OF THE SHOW were the MUGS!!!!
They were the real stars of the show!
And it was a thrill to have my past and present mugs included!


The show is up til the 29th!
GET THEE DOWN
Put aside a few hours to soak EVERYTHING in....

This shot has BOTH versions of Poko Ono and Tommy,Doug.Michelle,and Scott's Treasures...
aaaaaaand if you turn your gaze upper left
you can see my SOON TO BE RELEASED Modfish stacker mugs/bowls!
Here are some other test glaze options
it was a BUH-LAST working with vintage palettes on these!


BTW the bottom of the inside is stampred with a nice minimal modernist motif


Here's some shots of the SOLD OUT Edition of Poko Ono
It'sa MUG and a SHOTGLASS!

http://laluzdejesus.com/michelle-bickford-mondo-tiki-show/


Feeling quite inspired by the Exhibit
and relieved to have a pocket of time
i feverishly experimented and played
First with markers and bright colors
trying to graphically depict lighting/water/depth/atmosphere....
Here are the results..

HANG ON!
Things start to get REAL EXCITING!


"By the Shore"
Marker on Aquarelle Watercolor paper
9x12"


"Close to the Falls"

"Three Palms"
Marker on Aquarelle Watercolor paper

Tried to assume a Stuart Davis/Saul Steinberg/Jim Flora/Mary Blair/Bali painting
state of mind as i approached these landscapes....
Simplifying and abstracting
organic material
use of graphic shadows or patterning
(Balinese vegetation especially....LAYERS!)
use of color and shape to create ATMOSPHERE!
I hope you enjoyed those experiments....


The Next two pieces were for dear friends and fellow artists
Charlie and Gina
who have been steadfast inspirations AND our ride home from the exhibit!


"Cave of the Ancestors"
Marker on Aquarelle Watercolor paper

Marker and Ink on Aquarelle Watercolor paper
9x12"

Bought another Jim Flora book at the SoapPlant bookstore at la Luz
(amongst a pile of other tomes)
and part of it displayed his work for Columbia Records (CODA)
throwing me back to earlier thrift store ephemera hunts...
Well, one of the illustrations pictured a European island illustration
that really Captivated the eyes
despite being only about 3" tall in the book...
Decided to use that as a springboard
give it a tropical twist
throw in some Blair/Stuart Davis/and sketchbook and bali vegetation stylizations
came up with this series....


"Voyage"
Marker on Aquarelle Watercolor paper
9x12"


"Tropical Paradise"
Marker on Aquarelle Watercolor paper
9x12"


"Two Islands"
Marker on Aquarelle Watercolor paper
9x12"

Marker on Aquarelle Watercolor paper

Of course....
All of the above drawings will be available to adopt OR gift to a loved one
at December 12th's International Tiki marketplace at Don the Beachcombers!!!!!!!
That and more surprises TO BE ANNOUNCED!


Well, that should be enough for now
Enjoy and Digest and tell me what ya think
of these playful doodlings.....
And thanks for the visit!
Aloha!

Thank you for making today so very special. Visiting the show via your photos was so much fun.
I love your experiments. Winter is so blah and those vibrant colors just lighten the spirit.
The Gathering is just so wonderful in so many ways.

It's time to find someone to do a book on your art. A very thick book. We could visit your art that way even though it's gone off to home around the globe. I stand and look at your art in our home and just smile.

Thank you for these photos. Hugs, Wendy

Wow! That last Jim Flora-inspired series really blows me away! I can totally picture those on the Latin music albums my dad used to collect in the '60s. It would be fun to make some mock album covers using those images.

Hey Wendy! A thousand thanks for all you bring to this community!
So glad the new work warmed up your day!
and as for the book....no offers yet,
but i do have most of my work documented
and ready to go!
Someone call Taschen!

Love the Orongo bowl so far! You did such a masterful job!
Cannot wait to see it all glazed and finished and purdy!
Hugs to you and Dan.

Thanks Jen!
Jim Flora and Mary Blair and Leonard Weisgard who made impressions on my youthful eye.
i have a few more new pieces to share that were inspired by their work,colors,and whimsy.
Remember those good old days in the 80's before thrift shops changed to vintage boutiques and prices shot up?
Those were the days one could get a stack of records for just a few bucks!
and OH! the colors and imagery!


Well... Holden,Toe,and i did a docent tour where we discussed Tiki,Mugs,Art,and whatnot
and now the show is closed....
Sold a lil over a dozen pieces between the three of us
so that was a pleasant bump to our wallets
ie: Art Supply Warehouse Run!
Here's a link to the Mondo Tiki Docent Tour page with a bunch of pix and blabber!

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=50176&forum=17&start=30

Well, did a whole slew of new drawings,but i haven't cleaned up and assembled the scans...
(little known fact... 70% of my drawings are too big for my scanner,so i have to scan them in 2-8 pieces
depending how big they are... then i have to assemble them without the seams showing,which is no mean feat)

Anyways.. i'll share those when i finally assemble them..

But here's a painting
inspired by the latest Flora-inspired drawings
"the Volcano Awakens"
acrylic and cel-vinyl on masonite
16 x 20"


Got to use a few sea sponges to add that oomph!


Here's a little A-frame


and here's the volcano!


"the Cassowary"
acrylic and cel-vinyl on wood
16 x 20"


there he is!


Oh Oh! a Croc!


and here's a reeeeeal close-up!


and the last painting from the Blair/Flora jag...
"the Offering"
acrylic and cel-vinyl on masonite
16 x 20"
SOLD


Here's some bird shots...




Here's a crop of the volcano and abstract landscape


This painting just kinda flowed out... a few seconds in the sketchbook and BAM!
it was realized!


and some palms....


Was going thru my shelves of ephemera and reference and found a page
from Leonard Weisgard's "Summer Noisy Book"
i remember loving this book at the library at school
and decided to see if i could create some extensions of this snippet
from a varied and talented Children's book illustrator...


"Atoll"
Marker and ink on Aquarelle Watercolor paper
9.5 x 6.25"


"Village Morning"
Marker and ink on Aquarelle Watercolor paper
10.75 x 6.25"


"Peaceful Island"
Marker and ink on Aquarelle Watercolor paper
7.75 x 9.5"


"the Dreaming Volcano"
Marker and ink on Aquarelle Watercolor paper
8 x 10.75"


"island Waterfalls"
Marker and ink on Aquarelle Watercolor paper
9.5 x 14"


And after warming up.....
Decided to try a painting in this vein...

"the Friendly Isle"
Acrylic and cel-vinyl on masonite
16 x 20"


i see a Tiki!


i see a Lono!


and a waterfall!


These will be HERE! and available to grab as a wonderful gifts for the missus
DECEMBER 12th! at DON's!!!!



Well folks,our tour has come to an end...
I'm gonna go catch up on some much needed ZZZZ's!
Sweet Dreams ohana!

Oh you tease! I enjoyed looking at everything again. This time I saw the fish bowl on the Abandoned Table and though what a great bowl that would make.

I'm so happy you approve of the bowl I'm making for Jen Tiki. It will be fun to glaze it and see how it looks.

Keep on giving us joyful paintings. Thank you, Wendy

Will DO,dear friend!
I am VERY stoked at the progress of the bird bowl! It's a delight to see this piece pop off the painted surface and into the Reals World!

First off, i do hope you will come down to Don the beachcombers on Saturday January 23rd
for the International Tiki Marketplace!


LOTS of Artists! Lots of Genius Craftsmen! Lots of Vendors!
and of course....lotsa Yummy Drinks inside a Bona-Fide Tiki treasure of ours!
i hope your holidays were the BEST!
We'll start with some fun drawings and get progressively more Intense..
Follow me!


"Entrance"
pen,ink,and marker on Aquarelle watercolor paper
9x12"


"Appearance of the Bird Chief"
pen,ink,and marker on Aquarelle watercolor paper
Love that BIG wing swooping in from the upper right hand corner!
SWOOSH!


"Giant on the Ocean Floor"
This piece is still in progress...
it was created to show an example of the stages taken when i create a woodburn...
the pencil base drawing

the woodburning

and the final tinting over the woodburn...
This should be finished by the Marketplace on the 23rd...

This next piece WAS going to be in the Mondo Tiki show
but it wasn't speaking to me halfway....
it was being a brat....
but,i guess the warmth of the Holidays melted his heart or fired me up
and he was able to finally allow himself to be finished....


"the Cannibal King's Drunken Helmet"
Acrylic and cel-vinyl on board with a Chunky Bamboo Ben frame


Here are three details for you to oggle over....




and here's some details of the soused skulls in his helmet



the next piece is a BIG 'un!
It's from those earlier investigations/studies/elaborations
of Leonard Weisgard/Jim Flora/Mary Blair
from a few weeks back... Thought a 3x3' piece would make a suitable impact


"Tropical Village"
Acrylic and cel-vinyl on canvas
3x3'

Here's the tippy-top!

It was a Blast throwing in VERY unlikely colors and patterns
and then shading it until it developed a subtle realism
stylized,but coming to life....


Here's a lake on the far side of the island...




a close-up so you can see the way the colors were lay-ed down...


Fishies!


Next batch of drawings you will be shown here
were either Winner or Not so Much ideas for future paintings
this first one is a FOR SURE!

"the Afternoon Shade"
marker on Aquarelle Watercolor paper
private collection


"the Basking Bird"
marker and ink on Aquarelle Watercolor paper


"the Patient Listener"
marker and ink on Aquarelle Watercolor paper
private collection


"Visit to the Shore"
ink and watercolor on Aquarelle watercolor paper


"Walkway to the Cavern"
marker and ink on Aquarelle Watercolor paper

Here's a quicker,less detailed visit to the above mentioned styles
in the "Tropical Village" painting


"Homecoming"
Acrylic and cel-vinyl on masonite
16 x 20"

and here's some details from this piece
showing how GRAPHIC shadows and depth were used
and then LEFT ALONE after that
(unlike the "Tropical Village" piece,which develpoed that lighting further)




Also,over the Holidays.some Poko Ono Mugs were customized...
Here are the Editions....
Haole-Quin-private collection



Lemon Xanthous



Tide Pool-private collection Sunny Delight



Solid Gold Comedy Gold-private collection



and lastly.....TWO SPECIAL commissions...
They're destined for a Brand New Old School Tiki Bar opening soon...
That's all i can say,but as the date gets closer
MORE WILL BE REVEALED!!!!

the concepts for these were VOLCANO and WATERFALL

So two 30 x 40" frame-backed wood panels were bought and the studies began....
"the Unexpected Eruption"


Then the blackline was developed more...


and then colored up...


finally,it was sketched on wood....


and here it is as of Today....


still a lot of work on it,
but i'm pleased with the progress....

Next piece concerns waterfalls...
first the studies...






after showing these to the client,he only asked if i would put a monkey in there somewhere....
Seeing as a primate would be hiding during a volcanic eruption,a waterfall valley seemed a much friendlier place for him to live!

"Watchers of the Falls"


first painting session..


How it looks so far today...


and here are some details of the characters and elements that occupy this lil world....
Monkey!


Hut!


Drum!


Tiki!


Birds!


Waterfall!


That is all for today,dear friends....
Hope you enjoyed our visit!
See you soon!

Kinney! Killing it as usual... Brilliant works coming to life. You're a rockstar.

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts, inspiration, process and more! Truly inspires me, brother!

Be blessed and be a blessing, my friend. Peace.

Holy moly! Unfortunately I won't be able to see these in person next weekend, but man oh man these are purty pieces of awesomeness.

Impressed, as always.... and always love reading your posts, makes me happy and inspired and all that other good stuff. Wait- maybe that's the rum
