Man I love this thread. That little island is cool, and the portrait of an islander just looks so much cooler in person!

Hey llt- I've been away a few days, but this latest stuff is really something else.... I really admire your use of color in these! Of course, the designs are top notch - that goes without saying!

I'm with Tiki Shark...an animated short (or feature!) or book would be great...or a graphic novel! Too many cool pictures to comment on individually, so I'm gonna single this one out:

I can just imagine these guys paddling across the Rano Raraku crater lake on some sort of covert mission! I don't know what it is about tikis in canoes but I dig 'em!

Dang! I haven't seen so many delightful things since the last time I had some of those funny little mushrooms. Little Lost Tiki, clicking on this thread is like opening a box of exotic bon-bons. What a treat!

"the Lonely Cannibal" , I would have to say is one of my favorites. Few lines there but you can really see a sadness in his face. that's a powerful piece. And on the opposite side, Happy Morning, with those big wax lip looking mouth, belly hanging over. Happy being fat. Hopefully the morning painting wasn't the prior to the lonely cannibal.

The above painting, good thing they have a bird-man along for the needed bird's eye view.

Aloha Good Friends!
Busy week! Busy week!
Wow! Glad you're all liking these little experiments!
i promise to start on a big slow tedious Pompele size piece soon!
But first, the tinys for the Parking lot Sale!
Let's talk for a while, then we can look at some new ones....
Tabu:
They're not really menehune in that factory....they're bent and twisted little Kennys,
part of an earlier genetic experiment gone wrong.They were trying to clone artists
from across the globe to supply their moon bases...anyways, they were going to
euthanize these fellahs,so i bought 'em up cheap! I also bought degraded version
clones of our friends GROG,Kirby,and Squid, since the real McCoys didn't survive the
rigorous military testing and experiments...I decide to turn them loose to replace their
fallen fathers and to keep supplying the world with art! So that's the story on that!
Thanks for the kind writins! The characters from the Foggy Morning and the Plant warriors
from the Night Watch are part of that kids book that's slogging along ! You'll see them in
more paintings guaranteed!
Ben:
I am at your service! Thanks for popping in! It's always an honor! I answered your question above...don't tell those guys they're clones...I don't think they could handle it!
Dawn:
as you know, right as seasons begin,us artists get that chemical/electrical receptors engaged and on hi-alert!When the muse visits,you never slam the door..when inspiration comes knocking,you better leave the door unlocked! Just going with the flow until it stops! You've been rockin and rollin with all sorts of activities lately! I tell ya, it's the season change! When is your Tapa book scheduled for public consumption? I can hardly wait!
Clarita:
Thanks Sweetie!
I know you will sell all your candles at Tiki Ray's show! In the first 15 minutes!
Kirbs:
No. There's a no-clone policy on sales! Sorry.
Brad:
Thanks man! i can't tell you how much you've been an inspiration,Thanks!
That kids book should be done sooner than later...then the film deal....then
a swanky car...mansion...pool...accidental overdose...Wait! maybe that's not such a good idea...
Hewey:
Thanks man! Hoping to do some more with the Islander.There's a bunch of old sketchbook drawings of him and his clan,so you never know what will appear on something gessoed!
Thanks for lovin this thread! it loves you too!
Sam:
Hello again! Yeah! when you work on little quickie pieces,you don't have time to formulate colors and look at old masters paintings and old hawaiian shirts for colorways....it's more a gut thing-a leap into the void! And if the colors stink...ya paint over 'em!!! Speaking of colors, I love the colors in your penny slots/dollar slots tikis-totally captured the whole mood of that time!
Paipo:
Hullo sir! Tikis in canoes....you're right.There is something about them.
I plan on fleshing out their covert mission when the mists clear....
kctiki:
Howdy! I've actually had people come to the exhibitions ON mushrooms! It's pretty funny watching them watch the pieces..They usually will impart some wisdom or detail about the painting that had never been noticed or contemplated before...exotic bon-bons? Okay! that sounds good....I guess!
teaKEY:
the Lonely Cannibal was one of those quickies at the end of the session of about 12-13 hours,where you're enjoying a cigarette,cleaning up the studio and gettin ready for the drive home when the fever takes ahold and you know you got just one more piece inside that has to come out...and you know it's gonna be good because it's been in the back of your head all day...Happy Morning came early that morning and the lonely Cannibal was the last of the session...good call. But there's one thing..while it's true that artists channel their emotions into their piece...the painting does not always reflect the artist's mood! We have to be like actors,throwing ourselves into a narrative, being consumed by a heroic drama WHILE we're painting...analyzing the characters and their roles and squeezing it all in....charging it with mana ..the minute i get up to grab some coffee or take a ciggie break,then it's suicidal, manically giggly, antsy, melancholy, whatever mood i'm in that day...
RevBen:
Saw Rollins about 10 years ago at the SanDiego Street Scene...That guy has so much energy!
Okay...here's your present for tolerating these ramblings...
Here's a new paddle "After the Feast"

here's a closeup... those two evil twins crack me up!

Another Cannibal piece..."the Cannibal's Trophies"
I like how two of the arms are sprouting from the head!

detail..

"the Happy Sun"

detail...

"the Happy Voyage" very playful!

And this one took me most of Thursday evening...actually I was distracted a bit.
My friend debby brought over a DVD called "in search of wrong-eyed jesus" all
about the deep south and the land and the people and the culture...It had little music bits by some contemporary folksters like the Handsome family....very good film with lots of great performances...there's a scene in a bar and this gal with purple pants and a "hottie" shirt is
all liquored up and dancing...classic! Anyways, here's the painting that was created during the viewing and visiting..... "the Waterfall"

and a detail....

looks like my happy place!!! well, writer's cramp has settled in..gotta go!
Thanks again family!

Ahh, another waterfall! I love it! And the Happy Sun just brightens my day!

I really enjoy the little chats you have with your viewers before the exhibitions. They give us great insight into what goes on in that scruffy little head of yours.

Two more weeks 'til the sale! Keep going my manic friend!

GROG may be good at ART and ART CRITIQUE, but....
GROG cannot grasp math!
There is obviously only 3 waterfalls in the picture...
GROG must have consumed too many Navy Grogs last night...

If I "pissed" myself laffing when I looked at the tiki cannibal twins an' their scroll boobied mother does that count as (2) waterfalls?

Kenny, wanted to thank u for recommending the acrylic medium, it's making the water based stuff much easier and enjoyable. Keep it real-damn diculous LLT,

Don't forget, Kinny. You still owe me 5 bucks and a ciggy.

Parkin' lot sale baby! Y'all better show up early to get LLT's stuff 'cause some of us might make some dough that day and just spend it on other arteests' stuff!
