I think the consensus is you better get some posters of that printed up RIGHT NOW! Tiki kids are cool kids!

That alphabet is appealing to either young or old, which is pretty hard to accomplish if you think about it. Like the art in a Dr. Seuss book - cool on so many levels... Great going, Ken!

Hey Kids! Sorry to interrupt your fun-n-games but this week I been BUSY BUSY BUSY!
Started AND finished a bunch of stuff...will reply to any questions in the near future...
got so much to share,so i'll give it to ya in small bursts...a couple of new dumps every few days...
just for the time being...but i'm BUSY! Got a tonga Hut Show with Tiki Tony and Diablo, so i gotta
look Smart!
Of the pile of work I'm currently tackling,i finished a HUGE "Dance of the Cannibal king" It's around
16x 20-but it's not that, it's some fancy french measurement!
Here he is! (excuse the so-so quality...no time to scan this in 4 pieces and reassemble!)

Top!

Bottom

Looooooook into my eeeeeyes!

Oh Great! I just saw that i forgot to shade the skulls on the left!
Grrrrrrrrrreat....how embarrassing.....
More art -a lot more art later! maybe even tonight if i drink enough coffee!
All righty! before i take a ciggie break and begin packin up my truck for after-work studio session,here's a couple more!
Two new Ambush pieces! lovin that theme! AMBUSH!
(again, sorry for the quality-faster to shoot than scan today!

detail one!

detail two-Watch Out!

here's the second one i started...i like the texture and vibe already!

detail!

gotta go smoke ciggies! bye fer now!
Well I'm back and so, seeing as i'm only tired,and not super-tired...
here's some more!
The Lonely island is FINALLY done (paint-wise) I was having a problem with an area of it-mulled it over-then wrote my mutual inspiration Pact member TikiShark and he confirmed my theories! My Hero!
So here it is....

Here's the area that was getting this guy lost...so i did a few more washes and shading to set the island back and to bring him forward!
COME TO MEEEEEE!

then i also added some birds to give the viewer a sense of scale....

Then i looked at the frame and it seemed real ....crappy to me
so i started to dremel it!

Here's a close-up....What a pain in the butt! Those variegated corduroy
wood frames are kinda hard to dremel into! Oh Well! Started it-now i gotta finish it! Here's a detail!

Speaking of the dremel, i began a "King of Cannibal Island" piece !
Here's the study of the frame and the piece...

Here's the whole piece so far...

If you remember about a year back-Squid gave me these cool pieces of wood! Anyways, i did a "Praying Tangata Manu" with one-and this one has been collecting black widow spiderwebs for months! Until now....

this detail was a pain in the patooty on the last piece! ZOINKS!

this part's gonna be fun!

and now for the last surprise......
What is it Ken?

Please tell us!

Pretty Pleeeease?

well, if those clues weren't enough.....
I finished the Arrival! Yippee!

(except the sides....but that shouldn't take long....)

And now for the details-the little personalities and stories of each of these brave explorers.....
this one's fer Paipo!

Say Cheese!

Check out my Belly!

i like the light flashes and the sense of distance you get right here....

Neck Throttle Man! VROOOOOM!

Four-Armed Shield Man!

ready for landing on the Right!

ready for landing on the left!

SunHead...

very stoked to be a vehicle.....

this guy reminds me of the Puppet Master-this old fantastic Four villian! jack kirby used to draw him soo Rad! (Joe Sinnot did the inking and it twas PERFECT!)

i like this passenger/vehicle set-up as well! Ride in STYLE!

here's wiggly-wobbly guy!

a major closeup for all you detail-oriented art geeks.....

Drippy approaching the surface...


a lil small background shield...

That's it.....Sorry for lagging on the posting! But hey! You got a fun alphabet to be all juvenile with for a few days.....I'm going to BED!
Peace OUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT!!!!!
Mahalos for visiting this post and reading my ramblings!
I luvs YEW!

RIGHT ON BULLET! That is gonna LOOK INSANE when it's finished!
Thank you again for the honor of being on your bod!
That's a good amount of blackline coverage in a 3-hour session!
Thanks for keeping us posted on the Cannibal King!

and now to reply all those people i shined last post in my rush to
get some work up!

suburbanpagan-Thank you!Hope you printed out some letters for the girls
instead of hoarding them for juvenile antics....
See you next Saturday at the Tonga Hut.
Watch your back...

VampiressRN-I hope WooHoo gets wind of the Alphabet-if not, I'll print one
out for her...If this can inspire some kids to spell,then smiles for days!

Squid-my master-carver friend! Don't drink too much CAWFEE in Paris this month!

ravenne-Mahalos! "O" is my favorite! I want a donut like that! NOW!
and Smiley Skulls RAWK!

Clarita/Sophistatiki/Paipo-thanks fellow arteests! glad i could make y'all grin!
This alphabet is in the embryonic stage-if you want one for the kiddies-pm me
and I'll send ya a big file of it to print out at your home for family and friends!

teaKey-thanks for playing! I'm glad after getting you into counting,that we could
also get you stoked on spelling! A-plus!
(You too Bullet!)

SamGam-thanks Sam! Hearing that from you-a maestro with fonts and type-makes
me blush!

Tabu-"you are insane.keep going." Thanks.
Nowhere else but forward, my friend! Onward and Upward!!!

Well, I've been working on some little NEW pieces for the......

Where i'll be selling MUGS/PRINTS/PAINTINGS/and DRAWERINGS!
Here's some little 5x5 canvases I had (my wife bought em for my b-day!)
Guaranteed i will be selling these cheaper than SHAG!
"sad Boy"

"native Boy"

here's a detail of the sides....

and here's all 5-some finished-some almost....

also finished a "Cannibal Hut" cutaway view for all those curious
about Cannibal living quarters....

Note the well-crafted bamboo Ben frame! Classic!

in the attic above, i used the fellows on the dremel piece
as inspiration!
here's the Ground floor Room,with the owner enjoying a meal..

and here's the storage room...

Also started a "King of Cannibal Island" for the Tiki Magazine Art Show
in November..The dremelled piece will be too SKINNY to depict a
savage gluttonous Cannibal king,soooooooo I mixed ink and gesso and
slopped it over this lame-o thrift store barren landscape and decided
to give it a new life... After the gesso dried,i sketched out the main
elements with a water soluble pencil,then proceeded to alternate
between ink washes and gouache....Here it is so far....

Here's some details to show ya how i build up textures
and lighting....

He's got a great snarl!

BUFF!

here's a shot under his bench...

that's it for today! Thanks for peeping!
