Aloha!
Teakey~That would work, except I work for myself. So lying to my boss (me) is really difficult. He's such a bastard! I'm one of the owners of Tiki Shark Hawaii. Check out the cool little web site I put together. MANY tikis on it.
http://www.tikishark.com
Tikiking~Thank you soooooo much. I'm trying to make each one better than the one before, thanks for noticing!
Paipo~The Cthulhu mug. Yes, I totally get what your saying. There are a lot of regular Tikis in the painting already. What I was considering was that this mug may be made into a REAL mug. And I was thinking if a Cthulhu mug would sell through Tiki Farm. But, you know, you're not supposed to "over think" art. So, er... now I don't know what to do. Maybe, yes, maybe the squidyfaced Kona-Loa Chtuhlu mug. (You could get a mug and a poster of this print together maybe.) Uh Oh I'm thinking too much again.
Jentiki~Thanks! Now they are fantastic flowers rendered in fantastic plastic paint.
Hewey~What? Oh, yeah! Back to the canvas!
Jpmartdog~Glad you dig the contrasting colors. I'm kinda happy with them. It sorta resembled some stuff I've seen Robert Williams ( the father of Low Brow Art) do. Except, of course, he's WAY better.


The whole Tiki # 12

The Tiki Lounge. Yes, I try to make art that is pretty. PRETTY WEIRD!

Hey! There is an "Ironman" race being held in Kona today. Thousands of tourists from all over the world are here. The "sleepy little fishing village" (as the Hawaii guide books call Kailua-Kona) has swelled with an additional 25 thousand people! It's crazy! It's sort of like "tour de' Kona" or the Konolympics or something! The race started at 6 this morning and ends at 12 midnight. Some friends of mine have vollenteered to be "catchers" at the finish line for the 6PM to midnight slot. They said it's intense. Some people can't stop running, others collaspe. Many, suddenly loose control of all body functions, (Puking and er.. other stuff!!!!! Kinda like a south park episode!) We may amble down at about 10PM or so and watch the finish.

Hey, if you go to www.ironman.com and scroll down to the live feed, you can see the announcers at the Kona pier. In the BG is the heiau that is sitting behind the Kamehameha Hotel. It's a great reconstruction with lots of swanky tikis, and one of the greatest "tiki tourist" sites in Kona. "Check it out Brah!"

After, a good day ofpainting of course!

Mahalo and Aloha!

Definitely.

That mug is a great choice.

It belongs among the shared fantasies of that forbidden isle.

It's about time we had a Cthulhu Mug! I think this could be the start of a whole new line of ceramics. I'm really eager to see the Tsathoggua Shot Glass and the Byakhee Bowl. Not to mention the Deep Ones Decanter!!

So, filling in..

Those "brain waves" are almost done...

Big Mahalo from the dangerous volcanic, may erupt at any moment with huge earthquakes and land slides and lava flows. (they had a special on the Big Island on the Discovery Channel!) Big Island of Hawaii!

I'm really stoked you went with this one in the end and the mug looks beautiful. I can picture the real deal done in a green version of the glaze on squid's new skull bowl. I think it gives the whole painting a little more emphasis towards the mysterious rather than just tiki. With the cthulhu in the background too and now the mug, it makes you wonder who is really pulling the strings in the pic?
No need to compromise your art in favour of "what might sell" - just go with your instinct. Any mug you designed would be a hot seller regardless and besides, we've all got plenty of "just tiki" mugs - but who has a squid-faced Elder God tiki mug?

Thank you, everyone for the encouragement and direction.
Ravenne~Thank youThank youThank youThank youThank youThank youThank you!
Grog~HA! ( I love Dr. Zoidberg!)
Meheadhunter~ Mahalo, and yeah, you can see I'm being influenced by Sam Gambino.
Paipo~ Thanks alot! Very smart thinking. With my deadline looming large, I was starting to over think and stumble, and I needed someone to nudge me back on to the path. Hey and speaking of Squidy Elder Gods, there is a very cool "Old Time Radio Show" podcast that is featuering a show of the Dunwich Horror -go to
http://feeds.feedburner.com/horror it's part of their Halloween programing. I forgot that Halloween was a part of that H.P. Lovecraft story!
LLT and JPMD~ Big Mahalo my friends! Once again, my TC Art Collective mates have given me just the right words of advise!


Study of the "Brain-tender"

Mahalo~
