Ooga-Mooga does have a wishlist feature where you can post which mugs you want. Many of the mugs in my collection have made it into my hands as gifts because friends looked at my wishlist to see what I wanted.

Aloha friends!
long time no see....
Well, there was Tiki Oasis,which was an absolute blast! If you haven't seen the available pics,go check em out in California events...also,don't forget to go to collecting tiki and check out kingtiedye's roadtrip with Jonesy...it's a hoot! After all that Hullabaloo,the mugs came out...and then this wekend i had to go to Vegas for the MAGIC/Project apparel conventions for work.....Man! Add domestic callings to that and I've had hardly anytime to paint or even sit still for a second! But,duty called and I've been squeezing out some art every available free moment! especially with a TikiMagazine Art Show looming over the horizon! So, after speakin with y'all for a spell,i'll share some new goodies with ya!
Sam-thank you sir! Glad you like those muggies! you know the behind-the-scenes on making mugs-so to hear your kind words is a true compliment! And yes, Clysdalle is a true carving genius,as is Mr. Squid! Anyways,hope to see you again soon!
greentikipat-Thanks! Sometimes dreams do come true! i'm hoping to team up with Dave and Holden again in the future!
Sophistatiki-dream list?Maybe i'll have to donate a set to the museum of polypop,and you can use 'em when they're not on tour! Thank you my dear!
Ravenne and Brad-thanks friends! Hugs to ya both!
And a Big Mahalo and hugs to all of you who have seen and loved Oli-Oli,Kakaka,and Pupule! Your encouraging words and delightful smiles makes me want to make a hundred more mugs!
And a big shout out to all the new and old friends at Oasis! All of y'all were so nice and made me feel like a family member!!!!!
Time for art now...
first off,we'll start slowly with 2 cannibals from my sketchbook....

and "the Cannibal King's Ceremonial Garb"
this one was in response to a discussion with kingstiedye as to how many skulls could be crammed onto a Cannibal King's outfit....

Could've probably put more in there,but this was a quickie...
Here's an ink piece where i blacklined over an abstract background....these are fun because the element of surprise is a constant,and I likes to be surprised!!!!
"the Meeting"

and here's some progress on my "Cannibal Totem"...finally started getting the lighting going on the bottom figure...

Gotta love those Tangata Manu/Orongo/Birdman eyes!
Now onto the task at hand-gettin that Tiki magazine Art Show painting done!
it all started with this ink drawing,if you recall..

Chariots of the Gods meets the South Seas!
Well, I finally chose the main contenders for the piece and decided to work them out on a big ink drawing before hitting the canvas,,,,

Here's the BIG Piece so far!

and here's some details in progress....
Just like pompele,i used ink as a ground-sealed it-then started over it with the blackline in paintpen to get all the forms before the lighting and background are started....
Here's a vehicle for Paipo! represent!

as you can see,I roughed out the silhouette first freehand on all these guys...

and another...

and another...

and another...

and another with a little bit of the texture and lighting started....

and a little smile for you all!

well, that's all I've gotten done for now,but the Labor Day weekend is right around the corner,so expect more soon!!!! Thanks for visiting!

24 skulls, not bad. But next time don't forget to add the skull tattoo, skull knee-pads, skull ring, and skull toe ring.

This is definitely your next Tiki Farm mug. I know for a fact that Squid is pretty good at doing skulls so this one should be easy.

Crap, I didn't count one, so thats 25 seen 28 all together.

I can dig it! I like the way the dudes at the bottom of the menage a cinq have transmogrified into a Hawaiian style. I hope one of those inkwash blobs is earmarked for the Marq pogo-rocket-stiltstep guy.
I better get quicker at laying down my ideas...that Lono-esque dude is very similar to something I've been mulling and sketching for a few months now (except for one major element). I hope mine looks different enough that no-one will accuse me of plagiarism!

Good Morning!
teaKs!
It's actually 27 skulls! (there are 4 skulls on the chair he's sitting on! I know....3 skulls are IMPLIED,but they're nonetheless there or the chair/stool thing would collapse!) B-plus! Thanks for taking the time out to count them for us! Would love to do a mug in this flavor! Skull kneepads? Reminds me too much of an old goth girlfriend.....
Paipo!
Mr. Eye-Poppin Action! (can't figger out the trademark icon...) I decided to give those broken back fellahs more of a Hawaiian vibe (ie: some of the bowls and neckrests out there) Good Eye! and yes.... The Marq Pogo Rocket Stilt is one of those smaller blobs so worry not!
Cannot wait to see what kind of Lono you're gonna cook up!!!
Plagiarism?
I just got a call from Lono Inc. and Skull Co. about that!
The tiki biz is kinda like the tattoo biz...elaborations and additions on existing themes....
One of the purposes of the visual arts is to act as a stepladder up to the next idea,sharing and studying what others have created and trying to better or advance them! It's one big Mutual Inspiration Pact! Hi Ho!

Fabuluuuus!!! I am sorry I missed you at the Tiki Oasis marketplace (wasn't staying in the hotel, so couldn't shop Saturday...and drove home early on Sunday). I just know your stuff is awesome live, I'll be shopping at the next Oasis though. I love your wild pinks. Don't forget the skull on the inside of that fellas head...another implied skull....but pretty dayumed important.

Ladies Love Tiki Ken-LLTK,

This big ass pink painting is very cool! Love how you do all these layers of process and photodocument/explain them.

Word is Bond!

PS
I DID NOT vote for Larry Craig, lol!

Vamp-Sorry we missed ya at oasis! the wife and i had a SUPERFABBOATOMICBLAST there! Seriously considering Oasis next year! It'll be just before my tragic suicide so buy up all you can when you're there! Glad people are diggin the pink/magenta...i wanted something with a feel of morning/storm/and other-worldliness! As for skull-counting....I'll leave that up to teaKs from now on....He can be the official skull counter for this thread..and brad's too! Speaking of which....stay tuned!Mahalos!
Sneaky! Hey buddy! You know the dealio on big canvases/paintings! The pink does seem to envelop the viewer in a crazy anti-Rothko fashion!!!! I agree and love how everyone shares their processes -just helps us all with our own questions and experimentations!Thank you!
Word is Bond! Gold Bond...medicated powder!
Alright teaKs-bust out the calculator 'cause i gots 2 surprises for you! It was about 90 in the studio last night after work,so i piddled a bit on some pieces that need finishing,then busted out these 2 ink/bleach/sharpie drawings instead! Extreme stuffy heat is more conducive to drawings-a little freer and less worry about holding concentration and stuff...like playing!!!!
So here's what my heat-addled cranium popped out last night!!!
the first..."Cannibal king at Rest" ups the ante in the skull department! That's a lot of victims!

Looks like I have enough cannibal pieces to officially call it a JAG!
this is my favorite of the two....
and the second,produced between 11 and 2:30 ...a little rougher around the edges,but for an old fat fart in a hot studio,I'd have to say it suffices!
"the Cannibal's Incantation"

Alrighty! Time to go to the studio/sauna ! Enjoy my friends!

Wow, much much better. I think this qualifies you as a Genesis Book record holder for most skulls adorned on a king at one time. Soak in the fame. All it will take now to win will be if the skulls had skulls for eyes and no one is that crazy.

LLT, nobody can make cannibals as cute and colorful as you can. It's sort of a mind bender- sure it's all Bright and happy looking, but it's about eating people too! HA! I dig it! Cool seeing the big Chariots of the tiki gods starting. Really gets the mind going on what lighting and coloring will take place... great stuff!

Tiki Magazine! YEP! See you there!
