Thats very cool dude! Just when we thought you couldn't cram anything else into one of your paintings! I tried getting some glow in the dark paint years ago and got told it was no longer sold... I think I might have to try and track some down!

Glow in the dark paints are fun. They make GROG tongue glow when GROG lick it.

Kinny~
Oh... the glow in the dark treatment is the best freaking thing ever! Freakin A, freakin freaky freak freak!

Yeah! an what do ya mean "Tiki Shark Speed"? You mean you're gonna do one painting every six months or so, too? I think if you suddenly slowed all the way down to my speed, something bad would happen, like the earth would suddenly go off it's rotational axis and our planet would fall into the sun or something! Don't do it Ken!

I am really interested to see what you'll be working on for the big art show in Nov!

Aloha~

Aloha Dear Friends!
Well, Funtime is over and it's time for me to get krack-a-lackin on the Tiki magazine Art show pieces and my 4-panel Journey piece,so don't stop believing! (that was a Journey joke...uh...eh...)
Lots of goodies to share this week so first i'll do the usual replies then we'll get right into it.....
ravenne-Mahalo! it IS REALLY trippy in person...the glow illuminates the actual piece a bit...something that gets lost in the pixels...
teaKS!-true!true! a piece that functions both day and night! HiHo! I'll kayak to that!
Boris!-gracias! my theory is that teaKs was on some Top Secret Kayak trip to the Sepik river to his Secret Spot,where he rules the natives with a clenched bloody fist of shrunken heads! Your theory probably holds more water,so to speak! joshKAYAK!
Bullet- x100! "Cannibal Island will be on the way to your home early this week! Listen for the Drums!
Paipo- my King Okloe waterpipe DOES resemble a sculpture!
Jonesy-Thanks! I'm floating in a most peculiar way!
hewey!-there's 2 types of glow in the dark i use...Tulip brand Glow in the Dark Dimensional Fabric Paint in the "natural glow" color and Scribbles brand 3-D paint in the "natural" glow in the dark color.(they also have green & orange and yellow i think,if you want gradations in color as they all look ALMOST the same except for intensity...the Tulip stuff glows off! It's the brightest of the batch! Practice with it first,as it's like icing a cake! And watch your elbows as it smears/takes a few hours to dry....Have fun!
frostiki -thank you! I'm gonna do some bigger old etching style pics of chiefs and maybe famous heroes from Tikiland!
GROG-don't lick glow in the dark paint! It's non-toxic! Stick with lead paint chips!
Clarita-Gracias Tiki Friend!Have you ever thought of glow in the dark candles! They're so beautiful that if they were glow in the dark,you wouldn't have to light them and could keep them around forever!
TikiShark-Hey Brad! Great talkin to you today! Your tales of alien suits and the glow in the dark hawaiian floral shirt are hilarious and enlightening! 'Tiki Shark Speed"-prolly not one painting every 6 months, but more quality and less quantity....slow and steady wins the race! I'll keep a slower than usual pace,but nothing that would affect the earth's rotation or anything! Ditto on the wanting to see what you come up with for the November show!
Whew! This typing can really tire ya out!
Anyways.....first we're gonna have a little fun....something different!
I got a few kudos and inquiries about the shirt i wore to the Big Ol Tiki Bash (not the Lynyrd Skynyrd one-the one with tikis on it!silly gooses!) Anyways, it was a woven shirt print i had designed while doin the art director thing at Hawaiian Island Creations..i worked there from about 95-2002 doin tees/wovens/boardshorts/graphics etc.Well, seeing as i had a BRAND NEW Pegboard, i thought "why not share some of the old shirts with the Ohana?" So here goes....
First shirt inspired by a certain book on Oceanic Arts book(the title eludes me and I'm too lazy to march out to the studio and check)
Here's the front

Back

Detail

the next one was knocked off an old vintage 70's print.We took the flavor and style and a few of the motifs and built new stuff around it ....
Front

Back

Detail

the next one was inspired after reading hunter S. Thompson's "the Curse of Lono" illustrated by Ralph Steadman-the messiest genius on earth!
I did each of the tikis and tapa designs separately and scanned and arranged em on the MAC!
Front

Back

Detail

Here's a Thai/Bali/indo inspired one! This was printed on a natural barkcloth with navy and a gold metallic ink,so the details have a weathered,regal feel...real pimpin so to speak! not really! it just sounded funny!
Front

Detail of front "lion tail" motif

We engineered the back,here's the top middle back

there's some dragons and even Garuda makes an appearance!

Here's the bottom

and here's some details of the dragons,just because they turned out Wham-a-zam!

Rawr!

Here's another engineered woven with Bali Dancers on it!
front

Back

Bottom trim

detail

and the other colorway!

hope you enjoyed that!
I also worked on a turkey serving tray from Squid!
it's renamed "Cannibal Serving Dish"

those grooves are to catch the juices and blood-filling the wood full of powerful Turkey Thanksgiving mana i guess!
Detail

Well, I've also been working on that Journey commission too,but I'll post those later and let y'all digest this crap! Thanks again fer comin by!

Oh man that Curse of Lono shirt is rad. You did good with the Steadman style. Extra dig that you did the art on the shirt in greyscale. That shirt has a sketchbook quality to it. All the shirts are pretty impressive LLT. You do good work,real good work.
The illustration of that ratty surfer dude by Ralph in Curse of Lono is an image burned into my head forever. Along with his work for Pink Floyd on The Wall.

Thanks Chongo!
Rad Yakkin witchoo today!
Just to clear things up,the Pink Floyd artist was Gerald Scarfe,or Scharfe or Sharfe or something like that..very similiar styles,but now you got 2 artbooks on your wish list instead of 1! And that ratty punk of a surfer in the lono book is a crackup! That style is reeeeeeeal fun and messy!
Cheers to you island Bruthah from a Different Muthah!

Hello again!
Had a little bit of dinner and got "Cannibal Island" all prepped and ready to send up North!
So, I had mentioned a month or two back that i had received a commission of four canvases,each one a different stage of life,all depicting a journey ,inspired by some of my oarsmen pieces...well, i finally started it! The tricky part was a request by the patron to have a subtle picture of the oarsman built into the background,so when 2 canvases are placed together,you can read the background as well! Quite the challenge,but who else is insane enough to tackle such an epic theme and undertaking? Anyways, here's what was sketched up for the background earlier....

the top sketch is for the "birth/middle-age" canvases,and the bottom two are the "old age/death" canvases....the major problem is fitting the background subtle picture into the composition and have it"blend" in with the main painting on the surface....confused?
Let me show you....
Here's my sketches for the first canvas "birth" on the left...note the swooping angle of the composition and how the prow of the boat can be used for the "sweeping downward" area...
Also note, how the oarsman's head in the "background" picture will be located where the sun is....

The way to fit these perfectly was a problem, as i didn't want to use my opaque projector,as i wanted to freehand it on there (there's a certain freshness it gets....makes it a bit harder,but worth it!) So I figgured, i'd get the underpainting done,photograph it,print it out,and draw out the top composition over it to try out some options.....
Anyways,as if you aren't confused enough already...
here's the underpainting image so far....

that's 2 3 by 3 foot canvases,taped together on the back with mucho strong electrical tape...
That way,I can get the continuity of the image dialed!
here's the head

the hands (they still need a lil bit more working out...argh!)

the oar

I kept the style for this a bit loose,,,it's gonna get covered in areas,blended ,etc.
so no big loss....
Prow

and the side of the canoe so far...

More progress to come! I just need some time to chainsmoke and stare at it intensely....
Over and Out!

Wow, this beginning looks like it's going to result in a kick ass piece(s)!

I actually like the way you started out the hands. The hand kinda reminds me of this Van Gogh sketch (of an old man...I can't remember which) we had to imitate in one of my past drawing clases (I've taken too many to remember them all).

Still, it's awesome!

Oh and those designs on the shirts are sweet!
