Aloha~

Jen Tiki~Thanks, let's hope I can finish! (I think I can, I think I can...)
Tiki Fool~ Your metaphoric note about the "three offers" of a mysterious tropical drink was hysterical, and profound. I keep thinking about it! Thanks for the nice words about my technique, I guess I come from the "Aurora School of Painting".
Paipo~ I wish you could too! You're right about the difference of seeing an original. Ya know, I was looking at the current original in comparison to a giclee of number 11. Even though the giclee is really high quality, there's an intensity to an original, the intensity of the paint perhaps? - that is unique.
Hewey~ Mahalo!

TeyKey~ Wow, thanks so much! Juxtapoz, is something I subscribe to. I some times feel a bit isolated on this tropical island, and it's nice to have Jux as a look see at to what's happening in the low brow art scene. But, I gotta' say, I agree on yer thoughts about Juxtapoz - some of the latest issues of Jux have left me a tad unexcited. Maybe I'm getting old, but a lot of graffiti just looks like bad art to me. I think the best thing in the last issue was the ad for the XNO art work showing this month in Santa Monica. Still, I'd be thrilled to appear in Robert William's mag. He's like the father of the Low Brow Art movement. (Now if you'll just write a nice letter to their editor and let them know your opinion of my work...)


Here's da whole thang.

I started on the wahine. Tricky stuff, this anatomy and foreshortening!

Mahalo~

Aloha!
Malahlo Meheadhunter! Please send or post a pic of your tat if you get one done! I'd LOVE to see it! If you happen to be getting it done in Maui I know a great tattoo artist there and can hook you up.
Okay, pulled a late nighter and got most of the wahine done. Gotta finish..

It's finally all filled it! YEAH!

She's about there...
Then I gotta clean up the BG where I slopped paint on it.

Gotta take it o the printer tomorrow to get scanned...

Mahalo!

Wess, Can you post a pic of the picture that you are thinking of getting done. Or you might just have to tell us, we might already know the image. Is it the tiki holding girl?

Aloha!
Ravenne~I was worried about the girl. She looked so er..wrong before the paint. Then she looked so different after the rendering. But, I'm diggin her now. Lookin forwartd to clinking mai tais at the Bali Hai with you!
LLT~Feels good to not see any blank canvas!
Meheadhunter~TAT PICS!
Mooneytiki~ I think it's the "Tiki Mojo" coming out of the volcano.
Teakey~Yeah, PICS! I'm guessing that he's gonna make a tatoo out of the sketch/study of the evil brain. And get it on his butt. (that's what I'd do)
Isle conch~ Next one?! Wha? I'm hardley done with this one! ........Well, okay, I HAVE been thinking about what the next one will be. It'll be tiki painting #13, so it's gotta be something special. (Maybe not so big though!)

Done!

Up for sale now...

$2500.00 coconuts.

You can pick her up at the Bali Hai on Nov 2nd!

I have to take it up to Honu editions on the north side of the island today to get scanned so it can be come a print. However, yesterday there were Brush fires up there ~ bad ones! They closed the roads and evacuated the resorts! Yikes! The whole process was not going to happen - no scanning, no prints! Today, however, the fires are sort of under control, and the roads are open. I'm gonna call my printer at 9 AM and see if he can still scan the painting today. Only have today to do this. I leave tuesday for LA! (can this get any more last minute?!?)

Mahaloz!
