Good Guesses-Thanks for playing! Started with wet stained watercolor paper/you fill your dropper with ink and press it down on the surface where you'd like a line to show like an underdrawing(see on the hand)I started with blue-then i grabbed a wet sponge brush and spread the blue out towards the end of the paper-keeping the lighter color to define mr.tiki's shape.the feathers on the top were a mix of pressing down real hard on the dropper but just letting a teeny bit of ink thru(don't want a blob now do ya?)Then I grabbed the red (i think i was daydreaming about those red and blue 3-d glasses)and with the dropper drew out the eyes,lips,chest (of course the paper is drying a bit so the ink begins to bleed outward (resembling Tikiduddy's suggestion of blowing ink with a straw -which it does a bit I admit,but no splatters-a much cleaner spread of ink-like lil' arteries)Now the final touch -ever so simple,ever so subtle,but ever so important....I bet you're wondering what that is.....The background texture!Here's a fun tip that works better with ink but also works with gouache and watercolors.Grab a paper towel(2-ply-preferably decorated with bears or ducks-just kiddin),crumple it up and blot it down here and there and it creates an old wrinkled,rocky texture as it picks up ink BUT deposits it back down from the folds stickin out! I mostly stayed in the blue-but blotted it on the red just to bring that shade into the background a bit!Fun to do-but probably not half as fun as Hewey's burnt paper thing!http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=19657&forum=18&start=30There's nothing like smelling a campfire while you're making art!

Here's another recent creation.It's called "Tiki with a Hole in his Head" and it's made from a wooden serving tray.

enjoy!

Hey bro-
Awesome, as always. I like the way you will just paint on anything-great idea and very resourceful. I usually paint on found objects, mostly limited to windows and busted surfboards though. Next time I run across a wooden serving platter or something, I'm snaggin' it--maybe I'll save something for you to paint on and send me back for some $chingching$, eh?

Got your invite--thanx! it looks great, I may even frame it! Wish I could make it out there--take plenty o' pics for the rest of the Ohana to drool over!

Thanks Surf-n-Turf!
Always like hearing what talented individuals as yourself have to say!Thank you! lad you liked the invite-you're on my list now,so you'll be getting these unexpected goodies every once in a while! (BTW I'll send you some of those discs we talked about as soon as the show is started!)Been so busy lately,but I wanna keep my TC Ohana full of inspiration,soooooooo....I'm taking a breather from this powerpoint production I'm working on for the show and will post these two pieces. Seeing the word of the day is "resourceful"-here are two more pieces that would fit into that category! "the Tiki of the Green Flames"

This one was a dumazz plaque with some stupid Holly Hobbie knockoff (or was it the "Hang in There Baby" kitty hanging from a branch,,,can't recall)anyways,put some acrylic over that as soon as I got home,affixed the lamp on top (an old photographer friend gave me a bunch of screw on trophy tops-i receive a lotta odd junk from friends)(i once painted a pvc life-size poodle that someone donated-sold the first hour of the show! I made it look like an old crumbling ornate statue) and stared and smoked and stared until his little body and big face appeared!painted him up,then added this cleargel stuff i got in Closeout at JoAnnes'Fabrics or Crafts or something.I put it on the eyes and a few other places and they pop out all clear and shiny-like! You gotta see it in person!

Here's another new one called "Tiki Soldier" and it's just gouache on a former wooden stand for gemstones!(another donation!) strange things to paint on are always welcome.If the piece turns out ultra-bitchen,I usually keep it for a show to sell (unless it's a commission) and will send the gracious donater a watercolor or small painting! There are a lot of dumpsters around and a lot of garage sales and thrift stores.Sometimes it make take 7 stores or 2 days of hunting,but once you see that object,your brain knows it contains something special,just waiting for you to bring it to life! Mahalo!

I LOVE that "gem stand" tiki. How big is it? if it's big enough, it would make a great end table. slap some clear on top, add a carved tiki stand and you have a Kick ass table!

Totally dig your "where's tiki-waldo" work. I'm glad that you found this site and started posting. I'm looking forward to the next ones!

Thanks Polynesiac!
Saw your feature on coconutwired and checkrd out your site-Awesome stuff!
Regarding the Wooden Gemstone Base-it would be great for a Barbie or GI Joe-it's only about 15" tall!Weighs a ton,tho! Tabletop size would be about a ton!I'll post some more stuff soon!

I love seeing tiki art on left of field items You're taking an old item with mana already and giving it some more. Kool

thanks Hewey!
When you find an object or are given one,sometimes you can feel that mana in your hands.I actually think it helps and guides us artists with certain pieces!

Hey Mauitiki!
Actually i just finished hanging up the show(sans nametags) and I'm going to the printers this morning to turn in both books! In fact-I'm printing out a correction for the 500 tikis book now!then it's off to the printers for that and afterwards I gotta go on a HOPEFULLY final on the fine art print of "Arrival of the Pineapple King"-Plus all the other logistical stuff an exhibition requires! I'll be selling these exclusively at the Opening and then after that, I'll give a shout out to TC'ers if I have any leftover! If I run out-I'll post some pages just for you & the ohana to color! And of course,those TikiFarm color yourself posters should be done before summer and out before Christmas if all goes well! I'll be checking out your links when I get some down time! I see you do stickers! Here's a set we're working on for the show!

Well Gotta Run! Mahaloz!

Hewey!
All right-All right! I finished these two recently for the show(when I should have been typing up a price list or creating nametags!)so I will post them just for you,Sir!I took some pix of my studio and the pre-exhibit gallery and hanging for a possible future post "anatomy of a Tiki Art Show" or something like that-Just hung the show last night ,but that's the fun part! (I'll post those and photos from the show soon!) You're lucky I just finished my Powerpoint and turned in my books for the printing or else you'd have been artless this weekend! Enjoy these new ones-they're just kinda light and fun and I needed some vivid colors to carry me thru the week! Mahalos! Your humble servant, Ken
