Kinny ~ Cannibal with a Boner? Oh, I get it! Yeah, I dig the cannibal, but the Keeper of the Forest is really awesome.

Hey Folks!
Happy St Tiki Day!
Wow! Another Hi-Octane week fulla new pieces! But first,thank you all for looking at my silly pictures! it's very heartwarming and inspiring to be able to share art back and forth with other crazy and creative types!
hewey:
I love those two as well! There's something about warriors and explorers in boats,the journey,the adventure,the unknown, the teamwork or solitary nature of rowing,and depending on the huge ocean for safety and sustenance...Glad you likes 'em! I have a series of drawings around these pieces,a series that goes back a few years but finally dusted off and ready to go!
Jen:
Aloha sweetie! Yes I am a Cyborg-half man-child/half machine...I require 32 D-cell batteries for the bodily functioning and a small powerplant for the brain...
Chongo!
Hope you have a blast at your yard sale this weekend! Wish I could be there man! Can't wait to hang at the Parking Lot Sale in April!!!!
Kikekeki:
One of each? Save some for the rest of the Ohana!!! Greed doesn't become you!
Surf-n-Turf:
Mayberry Boy! Always great to hear from you! Thanks for the MySpace ADD! while we're on the subject of Boats...Check out this talented fellow's carving "a Diminutive Dinghy of Deities"! Zoinks! IZ GOOD!!!!
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=18289&forum=7&start=105&hilite=surf-n-turf
Benzart:
Always an honor to have you visit! Large "the Journey"? Coming up! It may take a while,but I've never shirked from good advice from Master Artists and Artisans!!! Thank you!
teaKEY:
Whaddup man?
I think i've been hardcore into the tiki paintings for almost 3 years....I've been doing Tiki art since about '89, but most of that stuff is on tees for Rusty/HIC/etc..I finally started doing a tiki painting here and there starting around 98 or so....when i first wanted to do "the little Lost Tiki" Childrens Book,which will probably never get done! too busy!) As for total paintings, i would say around 1000 since i began...Maybe closer to 850....My first few years, I kept awful records
....Don't worry if you miss out on the new ones because they'll always be new ones...(until my tragic suicide, but i'll announce that way in advance so you can all pick up some works before then!) )
Freddie:
Yikes Bruddah! Only you could think up something as twisted and funny as that! I don't think I'd like any of my bones,including my prized one, anywhere near a cannibal! Zoinks!
TikiShark:
Brad! Thanks you kind Sir!Man! Wish I had the discipline to work on just one piece like you! Hurry up and get it finished! I wanna see one that's all YOU and no patron-meddlers involved! Glad you like the Keeper of the forest! The base colors of him are from this Indonesian wooden stamp for fabric that I play with occasionally! Texture Rules! So do You!
Wow! That was a friggin Novel! now for the Money Shots...er...pictures!
Here's my more paintings that I'll be offering at the parking lot Sale at TikiFarm in April!

(oops! wrong thread!)
Here's some little tiny ones that were pretty fun to make!

Here's a watercolor! (I got 2 more paper pieces in the works AS WE SPEAK!)

the guy on the left best describes how I respond to crowds...

This one shows how I feel during crowds and Parking Lot Sales!

Here's a War Dancer showing off his best Soccertiki Tongue-Waggin!

this one is called "the Evening Frolic"

These last ones are closeups and details of some pieces I had to scan because the battery went out on the digital camera and i gotta wait for payday on that!


Here's one that will certainly be a big painting in the future!

These are the same shape as "the Cannibal Idol"-IN FACT...bought 'em all at the Swap Meet near GoldenWest College..They're serving trays(or paintings) that fit into each other!
Here's my favorite which may also become a larger painting eventually!
And...just so you don't think I'm slacking...I have the base colors down for a 16x20 piece loosely based on "the morning journey"...Well, gotta go! Not bad for a 666th post of the Beast!
Happy St. TikiDay friends!

Kenny~ Really nice. Lots of expression in your work. Movement, a raw energy! Love that warrior, and the scared shy man. All very juicy and great colors, as usual.

When you're finally found face down in a pile of paint and wooden thrift store knick knacks can I have your brain...for, you know, "research purposes"...?
Speaking of KISS tikis, I had been thinking along very similar lines recently - I think Gene Simmons makeup design would look pretty sweet etched into a tiki face!

Hey PockyTiki:
Mahalos! Besides money, I also take first-born children and indentured servitude...
But worry not, muy good friend!
These recent ones are all gonna be in the TikiFarm April Parking Lot Sale and WILL BE
very affordable! I already got a bunch of PMs from people wantin' "Dibs" on pieces...No Dibs!
First come, first serve....Bringing me coffee or free ciggies MAY compell me to get you in front of the line,tho! But, if someone likes a piece and can't make it to the sale, the only way i can reserve them is the buyer wants to buy the piece at once...The ultra funny Travelling Jonsey just picked up" the Morning Journey" as opposed to chancing the piece being sold at the TFPLS (TikiFarm April Parking Lot Sale). Believe me....these paintings are AFFORDABLE! I want a lot of Art lovers to be able to bring something home that will make them happy for-friggin-ever!!! That's my Job-making all of youse Happy!!!(Plus the Art monkey on my back has decided to renew his lease and invite his relatives-so it doesn't look like I'll run out of pieces,more like I'll run out of wallspace at home and the studios!) Thanks for loving my children-they love you too!
Jentiki:
Thank you darling! No Dibs! No Dibs for you! From now on, I'd like to be addressed as the "TikiFarm Parking Lot Sale Nazi". What's up with the word "Dibs"? Anyone know?
FreedieBallz:
Hey Clown! I'm rethinking my decision...I think I'd rather have a "Native Squirrel" with a spear/grass skirt/tiki or bone necklace instead of the Squirrel doing bong rips..(Freddie was referring to the Doug Horne Tonga Hut post with the Squirrel thing! Seeing as he lives in the North,they get a lotta squirrels...which inspires....Squirrel Taxidermy! Anyways, I sent him on a hunt for some...maybe a custom one for trades!) I'm eager to hear the results of your expedition!
Brad:
Thanks man! After your commission,you're gonna need a break...I suggest just gessoing a bunch of stuff laying around the hut and PLAY! PLAY! PLAY! After doing a lotta technical/well-thought out pieces...it's a Hoot just to go off on some fun pieces with textures/colors...plus if you've been a good boy and keeping regular on your sketchbook, here's your chance to bring those a little further out into the open...i can't tell you how many great ideas have sprung from these Jam Sessions! I'd love to see what you would create! Get that Commission done!!!
Tama and Paipo:
Ah! My two misfit friends from NZ!
Man! I hate the fact that 95% of my sketchbooks are at the studio (I usually keep the recent and second to recent ones at the home studio here!)BECAUSE I had this"Maori Rocker" like this guy,a lil' shorter,with a full-on AXE! he was Rockin in the Free World! I'll dig that up next week to show y'all! Hey Paipo! You can have the Brain now! It's buggin me,reminding me that i gotta "blend-in" or "pipe-down" or "act normal"...Take it away before ALL the braincells are gone! (Not responsible for slight and /or major defects) The KIZZ moko would be super cool! You should get one! Moais would look schweet with those on as well! Kinda on the subject, the Melvins put out some solo albums with covers based on the KIZZ solo covers a while back! Buzzo's cover is the best, as he took the Gene Simmons cover...Anyways! Also off the subject...finally finished the "Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini, this Renaissance sculpter/carver/artisan...His story is so incredible...intrigue...pissin off Dukes,Princes,Kings,and Popes....
assasination attempts on his life...backbiting....prison....escaping from prison....a deal with some Demons....Angelic Protection.....Besmirching of Honour.....all told by an artist very candidly, with a huge serving of ego and accomplishment thrown in! If you can get the version with the Dali etchings,all the better! Thought both of you carvers would enjoy it! Not sure if Tama can read, but you could read it to him!
Well...enough of all these mild pleasantries! Time for some more ART! These are those sketchbook entries from my "Unknown Tropical Legend" series...these may turn into paintings someday, so tell me your favorites or suggest some other universal/generic tropical narrative idears! I'd love to hear 'em! Aloha!





These are from sketchbooks recent and past, I decided to put them together on pages for when i start the paintings! Hope you like 'em!

Wow man - so much new stuff!

These latest sketches have a very Greek mythology look about them.

Yeah, totally got a Greek painting style like the whole black paint on red earthenware thing, kinda Minoan with the maritime meets Greek style. The Isle of Minonesia. Nice sketches LLT! Speaking of Greeks, I just watched the 300 movie bloodbath about the Spartans. Kinda Samurai Jack ending. Peace and drugs.. er luv.

Hey Kids!
I can't stop it! It seems I've lost the OFF switch and the CREATIVE OUTPUT meter has gone Haywire! Haywire!Needless to say, gave birth to a few more watercolors and a full fledged mini painting that will make you at least smirk!
Hewey:
Ever since i was a wee one, it was comic books and Greek and Roman and Sumerian and Norse and Inuit myths and legends...art History books supported and rewarded those who knew the myths, so i would totally geek out and draw my own versions or studies of great works of art,hoping it would rub off.And comic books...
Sneaky:
Those are Greek Amphora Jugs,there's a lot at the newly refurbished Getty museum...My friend James from our Art Dept got me in! I was in Heaven! Talk about geeking out! His wife would crack up watching me fawn over these exquisite works! I really dig the flatness and graphicness of Minoan Paintings,Greek Vase Paintings,Aztec Codex's,Persian Miniatures,Illuminated Manuscripts-Dark Ages,Russian Icon Paintings and the Carved Images on the Wu Family Tomb-Han Dynasty...All of them have a flatness and real forced perspective to it...Also the emotion and drive of the figure is expressed more in the shape, the form of that figure...
Sneaky:
I think you nailed it a bit with Minoanesia...Maybe pre-Lemuria or Crete...
4WDtiki:
You will be STOKED at the amount of work I'll be bringing!
Spring Cleaning!!!
Thanks to you all for visiting and for the good vibrations!
Had a Watercolor Burst the past few days and just thought
i'd share! I'll have a couple folders filled with
Sketchbook pages/drawings/watercolors all available for adoption!!
First one is a Nighttime dream Journey of this fellah!

the next one is just DorkyFun, but it made me grin...
KU-ZILLA!

Here's a Moai on a Misty Morning (sorry it got cut off)

Warrior, this one is a theme/guy i love to paint!

and we'll finish off these watercolors with
another Boatman,a Fisherman this time!

And here's my favorite of the batch...
Uncle Four-Eyes, so to speak..
I imagine this is how I look to small children!

Anyways, that's it for now! More even NEWER stuff soon!
Thanks for peeking in!
