"Seated Cannibal King"
"the Secret Cave"
Love that first one...it reminds me of the "happy helmet" with the vivid colours and the old-school engraving style crosshatch inking. I dig the way these cannibals are developing into a genre all of their own.
The second one makes me think of a blizzard...Tiki Ice Age? I can feel the chill from here! Some of the figures even look like they're huddled up against the elements...

Wow, I don't know how you do it all. There's so much detail in every one of them. It's very impressive!

Today is the DAY! Can't wait to see y'all there!
No time to reply,but will next posting! Thought i was done with new pieces for the BASH...
but NOOOOOOOOOO....so much for a hobby going dangerously wrong....
Anyways,did some more newbies and thought I'd post 'em before heading to the BASH!
last Bamboo Ben creation with LLT embellishments for the BASH!
I love this one!
got this cheesy seashell frame at the thrift store...
"the Joyful Gaze"
This one was a total hens and butterfly tole painting when i got it....
So i guess one genre obliterated another....
"Blue Frowner/Orange Smiler"
i like how he jiggles!
and another one that made me smile for a spell..
"Portait of an Orongo Chief"
I tried to make it look like an old tinted etching..
like those ones of Maori Chieftains and such...
The frame is a weird mix of European Flourish and tribal motifs that hint of a navigation/compass...it kinda worked....
Well,I have to go say my goodbyes to all these guys as they will hopefully all reach good homes!
Thanks for visiting and Can't wait to see or meetcha! and if i forget your name ,it's because I'm a stoner,not an insensitive bassard....

Back from the Big Ol Tiki Bash! Wow! If you haven't checked out that thread and photos-GO NOW!
Also if you haven't purchased your Chongolio Ohana Hut raffle Tickets-yer dum! so many fantastic items and the tix are less than a Bushmills and Coke!
Chongo-droppin Yiddish now? I'd like to hear a coconut wired podcast in Hebrew! get on it!
and thank you for all your motivation and inspiration monkeyboy!
Paipo-Wore your Moai Tangata Manu proudly to the Bash! Saw a lot of paipos there! Represent!
A lot of folks seem to be diggin on the Cannibal King...maybe a painting or print could come outta that...Anyways,it survived the Bash,but got scooped up by Bullet yesterday! He has big plans for it,so watch the skies! I used to do everything with that crosshatch style,but after over 30 sketchbooks and hundreds of paintings ,me old joints were a bit achey,so I switched over to the sumi ink pen and water-or just ink washed to get the lighting down.This one felt real special so i went with the gut instinct and did the hatching! Thanks for noticing! Plus, I'm a big fan of Bruegel,Durer,and Crumb...go figure! As for the second one,I think i overdid the bleach ie: that snow effect! I was trying to get speckles on the rocks...I may actually do another wash over the rock areas to push it back a bit.
and then the stars kinda re-inforced the snowy vibe...I did put palms in there to no avail...Oh well! I've learned that every viewer will have a different take when viewing an object of art...Oi Vey!
Clysdalle-you like the pegboard? It took me the longest time to punch all those holes in there accurately!painter pants.....sheesh!
Queen Kamehameha-It was so great to see YOU in person at the Bash! Thanks for always making the time to visit us down here by the shoreline!
Zaya-details are what life is all about,and also they're the things that bring life to characters and landscapes in the paintings...It was fun seeing you and the buzz-AY on Saturday! Bring more tikis next time!
GROG-"You sure it's not because you're an insensitive stoner bastard?"
Why must you always view the glass as half-empty? It was okay seeing you on Saturday!
TikiShark-Brad! Thanks for the props and right back atcha! I went with an muted palette on the Orongo Chief and it gave it that old timey feeling-like an old hand tinted postcard...After this latest is done-take a break-buy some inks and some thick hot-press watercolor paper and PLAY! Everyone has a color sense,you just have to not be scared when it talks to you! Seriously! Check out your whole Mystic Tiki series...every single one of them has the most perfect and appropriate colors...so quit whining and get back to the canvas!
KAHAKA-"Any of these pieces left after the Bash???"
Yessirree! I brought about 150-200 drawings and around 40 paintings...still got a lot leftover! I may put some of the favorites up on Marketplace in a few weeks...or if you or anyone are interested in a piece,throw down a PM and I'll get the adoption papers ready!
Hewey! Thanks man! Seems like you and Brad are on the same wavelength!!!!
Alrighty,since the BASH,I've taken about 7 naps including my regular sleeping pattern...Was it Thoreau that said "Sleep is my only wings away"? Well, he nailed that ! Usually after a long period of creativity,the bod will just shut down for a few days and process all its learnt..great dreams during this period...yes,even dreams about Naples yellow can be rejuvenating!
BUT, i have been working on the final final stage of "Cannibal Island"....
the GLOW-IN-THE-DARK phase! This piece is 98.9% done,one more quick checkout tomorrow, a final coat of sealant,a signature,and off it goes to kingstiedye! then it's the 4 canvas commission and pieces for the november tiki magazine show! So be prepared for TikiShark speed entries...
Here's a lights on/lights off comparison for all y'all!
if you have any mushrooms,you should've dropped 'em about an hour ago...
2 different vibes...i hope bullet digs it!
well, it's sleeptime-goodnight friends!

I never would've imagined the piece to turn out this trippy with the glow-in-the-dark paint!
I love it!

When you still get to enjoy your paintings in the dark, thats like a 50% greater return on your investment. I'll drink to that

Very nice Ken, Glow in the dark is the coolest whether it's a Fruity Pebbles Dinosaur or tape on a stairway. I LOVE it.
I also like how TeaKEY in a Kayak is outlined so you can't see that he's sitting in a Sporting Goods store. Very Nice!
