I love all these design and colour studies - mine are usually scribbled pen pieces, some of which are sneakily done at work - I always keep a notepad and pen next to my computer I just love watching your whole process, it's great!

The canvas so far looks very interesting, and I love the colors! very purdy!


I can't wait to see it evolve more!

LLT- you paint like a child. So free and confident, I wish I never lost that part and feeling but I hope to get back to it one day. Maybe your work will be what helps me find it again.

I bet you almost ran out of the "Hawaiian" tiki designs cause you did them about a 1000 ways. The PNG stuff is wild. I wonder if you can simplify them more, I bet you will. You know which one I like of the hooks? I wish I had money to buy your work. I see tons of great designs that have my name on them but they keep passing my up. Alright, going back to study them again

It's not fair - you produce more drawings and good ideas for one piece than I do in a whole year! Gotta agree with TeaKey, the way you strip these down to the bare bones is really cool. I dig these babies:

The one on the right is incredible. They kinda remind me of the mentats in "Dune". I really hope this one's gonna be in the painting....


Another classic kinnified design (stilt step)- looks like he's riding a rocket-powered pogo stick. Those little dancing/arms linked guys are found all through Polynesia and are one of my favourite motifs. I've been trying to come up with a concept for them for ages. I don't know about the Austral variants, but in the Cook Islands they are called Tikitiki Tangata. I've got a couple of Mangaian versions on my arm!

Wowwie!

LLT, those mugs are SPECTACULAR!! The tag team of yourself and Master Squid is unstoppable! Those stencils used on the sides are totally, totally sweet! I don't have a mug collection....that's going to change right now. These mugs are some of the best I've seen all year.

I've said it before, I'll say it again, you cats in Hollywood rock the hardest!

Thanks Benz!
these mugs would still lose in a tagteam with Vicious and Malicious! It's always good to hear from the Grand Ancient Master!

Thanks! This never could have been realized without the Master Skillz of Sir Squidley and the keen instincts of Holden! Thanks!

actually sir, those are decals! Theyre special magical waterslide decals,that are applied after the first firing then given a clear coat of glaze and fired again! the problem was that the glazes change color after firing,sooooooooo.....that was quite fun!
Hewey,ravers,teaKs,paipo,and frostiki...Thanks you also! I'll answer all your questions and have some more surprises soon! thanks for your patience....and paipo...I'm puttin that guy in the painting just for YOU!

Dude, you've got artistic diarrhea. You crap that stuff out faster than Bamboo Ben downs beers, and baby THAT is FAST!!!

Maybe you should give Tikishark some of that artistic fiber you've been eating. He's going to bust a gut just trying to squeeze ONE out.

Hey Ken-

What great stuff! You are a talent all the way around! Those mugs ARE cool too with all of your intricacies (is that spelled right?). I like the Clysdalle tiki of yours too. I just saw it on Sketchkult, but didn't know it was yours.... Anyhow, I agree! You rock!
