yeah, but the misspelling is canceled out by the proper use of the word, not to mention the impressive fact that it is even in GROG's vocabulary...

wow those are all great. 'Tiki Dream' is also my favorite. it's color and shape comp. are perfect. a fabric is a great idea. if that were a tiki shirt, i'd wear it out, then buy another.

MUSIC FOR MY EYEBALLS!!!!!!! Wandering Fish rocks heavy. I 'm diggin Quiet Village, too! Hell, I'm really diggin' all of them, as usual. The black/white ones are neat-I like the way you added just a bit of color in Seated Chief and a few others as well.

To ANYONE fortunate enough to score an original 'Ruzic'- from LLT at Tiki Farm this weekend... you are in for a real treat!

I scored an "Early Bird; East Coast Special" from Kinny and it arrived tonight... freshley framed by Link at Frame Fetish. ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!!

LLT your color and line detail is amazing up close and the splashes of paint with ink wash add a 3rd Dimension of texture! Also, Frame Fetish takes it out even further complimenting your colors and design elements...that ONLY Link can do!

I'M NOT WORTHY...but extremely HapPy-HapPy! YOU can be too! buy, Buy, BUY from 'Little Lost Tiki' booth at the Tiki Farm Sale Saturday!!!






Flip-flOp-fLipPp...

WHEAOIUW! Traveling Jones thanks for posting those amazing shots! Beautiful! At first I thought you were shooting down at the framed piece, but Link totally created a custom non square bamboo frame for Kenny's gorgeous piece! That is too cool! Man all of LLT's work is so powerful, but those extra creative framing jobs take them to a whole new level. Very smart, and very nice of you to pass out Frame fetish cards at the sale, Ken. I know it always feels extra good to know that after the children leave home they go somewhere where they are well taken care of!

That frame just adds to the LLT beauty. And speaking of beauty, I can tell just from that pic that Jonesey has a world of treasures that we have yet to see. Maybe when TC is in a low week, the big guns could come out.

Hello friends!
Sorry about the Radio Silence but that TikiFarm Parking Lot Sale kicked my booty! Despite being sick and very tired(up at 4:30-there by 6:45) it was a Day to end all Days!If you haven't checked out the thread,you should! NOW! here's where the photos start....
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=22764&forum=17&start=255
What a Day! Anyways,you can imagine the Sunday after all that....sleeping in....relaxing...being braindead.....NOT! the fever took me and that tingle of inspiration started making me antsy at 8! Primed up some pieces with blue and green gesso(great frames-I'll shoot 'em soon!) and began in the sketchbook....For reasons i will keep secret for now, the 2 words "Tiki" and "Island" began to occupy my thoughts,and here are the results of having the leisure of exploring a theme for just one day.Man! SHOUTed with Tygerjymmy today today and realized how an artist shouldn't have a dayjob!Just on the way to work,I got some problem-solving done with Travelling Jonesey's "project"...Jymmy is a full-time artist in every sense of the word! And a nice guy too! But him,and Doug Horne,and Chongo, and Ben,and THOR ,and Dave,even Brad to some extent,they're all doing it,they're pretty much full-time artists....Being 42, you reflect a lot on life-where you've been, where you're going,how this life and all it's lessons fit into the MasterPlan,and the thought of being a full-time artist has always been a dream but never a reality....I'd love to hear some of you fellows as to how you do it/what keeps you going?What's the best business strategy? You guys are an inspiration,BlahBlahBlah....now hand over some advice ,please...
Sorry! It was an insight and i wanted to share....
Anyways, Back to those 2 words "Tiki" and "Island" that for secret for now reasons had been haunting me since the Sale....
First off the whole "island as boat theme"...the "travelling island" Post-Pangea,is that what the cluster of continents long ago was called?just drifting,but not without purpose...Although the island in these represents a community, a society,they can also represent the individual, the island as a persona......No man is an Island is a phrase that unfortunately isn't true today...technology lends itself to promoting isolation and antisocial lifestyles. But i digress...
Here's the first one...

here's a volcano one and a mysterious atoll with a HUGE HONKIN TIKI in the middle! I heard Atlantis wasbuilt in a network of concentric rings...might do that with this one....

then i wandered off into orongos,the sooty tern that possibly represented make-make to them. Please correct me if I'm wrong ,but I think he was a creator god to the inhabitants? Anyway.i decided to make 'em REAL BIG-mythic in proportion,and also, like other stories,to transport islands!

or a mischievous Island Stealer!

or perhaps situating a volcano in the perfect area?

then i remained all in the GIANT mode ,must have been finally meeting Doug Horne that triggered all that Giant stuff...
Here's a Relocation sketch

then a MOAI RUSHMORE kinda vibe!

a little Stellar influence....

finally, the theme became more universal,exploring themes throughout varying cultures...
hence, the Flood

finally, for inspiration, i began to look at drawings and photos of water and rocks and landscapes as well as the lair of the Ancient One drawing i had painted a while ago...

and a little variation!

Well, it's time for dinner! Gotta go! thanks for visiting!

You did all that since Sunday? Wow!! You have some really great ideas. I especially like the Moai Rushmore. Well I think you're talented enough to be a full time artist. It would be such a relief because sometimes it feels like all you do is think about your art on top of all the things you really have to do to make it in life. The thought of only having to concentrate on your art sounds like a dream. I always think of my dad because he was a musician who played piano for a living, and he said that he was the luckiest man alive because he was paid to do what he loved to do. It was as if he never had to work a day in his life. If only we could all be so lucky! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your ideas!

LLTIKI,

Ditto what teakey just said! The new drawing batch just builds on all the themes you've been doing, and takes them all further -- product is greater than the sum of it's parts.
Really brilliant brainstorm of ideas!

Keep the day job! No, I'm sure you could be a successful self-employed/freelance type creative. The worst thing (for me anyway) is the book-keeping, but oh man - the freedom!
teaKEY's right too - you probably make more stuff in your spare time than most of us full-time self employed types could do in a full year!

Talkin 'bout makemake, that doco I told you about has quite a bit to do with him. The figure at the top right of these petroglyphs is meant to represent him:

He's the supreme deity of the birdman cult but is portayed as a humanoid figure similar to the moai kavakava (according to the doco). I think he may also be the figure on the dance paddles and some of the cave stones/clubs.
And as for islands and cliffs with with holes in 'em...check these out these Maori Pa pics from Cook's first voyage:
