Thanks Rodeotiki!
I realized i hadn't shared any of my drawings.I'm working on a kid's book and also a book full of my studies (tiki and otherwise) from the past 3-4 years.I've finished about 7 mostly tikitropicaloceania-inspired sketchbooks since last May 05 and decided to slam tham all together into a book or two for the August show.Here's a lil' teaser! (Sorry-it got cropped in Shutterfly for some reason!)

This is just an example page-Seeing I had so many tikis I had to scan them,shrink them and put them on pages(One per page-a 900 page book is a wee too big!)
See kids! You draw a little bit everyday and you not only improve but you'll have enough drawings to make a book!

Hey Hewey!
I'll be getting my invitations this week for the August Tiki Show.I'll send yours off by the end of the week.Which means it should get there around Christmas!
Hey! If anyone else wants to get an invite to the show mailed directly to their home,just PM your address and I'll mail one off.It's postcard size and has a great reproduction of "the Arrival of the Pineapple King" (we took it from the giclee scan so it's pretty tight!)on one side and artist's reception info on the other!

'the Family Tree" gouache and ink on wood

Thanks y'all!
It's been such a pleasure meeting new artists and aficionados! The "Family Tree" piece is basically gouache mixed with gesso and applied to the wood-sanded if you want-lightly.I usually mix the colors with big strokes for the background-then i paint it in -just shapes -still kinda abstract-then I bust out the gouache or in this case I used my sumi ink brush pen-so I don't have to keep on dippin my brush-then go over the highlights and stuff with gouache then I seal it.These ones are pretty easy! I can get one or two of these done a night when I get the time! Thanks for asking!Hope this helped! Let's see what you make with this recently declassified information!

-(I've only painted 3 boards so if anyone knows a better way to remove wax...


Go to a surf shop that advertises ding repairs. Go ask the ding repair dude for the wax remover cloths that he uses. Most stores do not sell them retail if they do not have on site ding repairs. You basically let your board sit in the sun for about five minutes, then scrape the wax off with a wax comb, and then use the wet nap looking things that you get from the surf shop and your board will be clean in moments. Most ding repair guys that do alot of work will have these handy for personal use and most will sell them to you if you ask. I cannot find mine right now so I can't give you a brand name, but they are specifically made for wax removal when you repair dings and it works real quick, so any ding repair guy will know what you are talking about .Or, if you have more money than time, ask a ding repair guy for an estimate on how much it would be to refurbish it himself. Most ding repair guys I know live in their trucks out behind the glass shop they work at, saving money to fly to Bali in a month, so they are prone to bargaining if you get them at the right time. Ding repair is hugely profitable, so there is always room to barter with these guys.
As far as doing small ding repair yourself, at the consumer level there is stuff called "Solarez( available at almost every real surf shop-not mall/inland clothes places) that is a resin that cures in the sun. It comes in a toothpaste tube looking thing. You squeeze out the clear rez and cover it with saran wrap while in the sun. It immediately starts to thicken and can be molded to shape for about 3-5 minutes. After about 12 minutes in the sun, you can sand it down flush with the original glass. this is much quicker for small dings than reglassing, and less expensive.
Nice work too, hope this helps.
Buzzy

Thanks Buzzy!
I just knew there was someone here who knew an easier way! Thanks so much! With this information out now, there should be a renaissance of freshly cleaned-newly painted boards in a couple of days!Like the Thor cover! I grew up in the late 60's to old Jack Kirby-pencils/Vince Colletta (?)-inked Thors and Fantastic Fours! That was about the time John Romita started his brilliant work on Spiderman! Man, If it weren't for comics,I would have had a regular childhood!Thanks again for your clear and easy solution-No more Bestine! This will free me up for at least 2 more paintings a year!

I love "The Goon" comic... He goes around beating people up, in a town that has heaps of zombies... Kool

Thanks y'all!
Buzzy-that comic book cover thread just took me back to my days of reading,drawing,and teenage vandalism!Thanks for the skinny on that thread!Benzart and Hewey-It really puts a smile on me mug to hear such encouragement from fellow tiki-peers! I hope these bring you a bit of Tiki inspiration!Here's a fat Blue Tiki to liven up all this typing!Found the wood at a thrift shop with a lame "What a Father is" poem affixed to it! A little bit of gesso and gouache,a pinch of self-portrait,and a dollop of tiki mana and here he is!
