Your skull mask RAWKS! It's very Tiki Shark! I'm glad you pointed us to the blog, I had missed Squid's skull, which is really cool too!

Hi Brad...didn't mean to pressure you ref. "next painting" Your work is so great I can't get enough. If I lived in Kona, I'd sit and watch you turn plain canvas into a work of ART. Good luck on the show and enjoy yourself...you deserve a break. The finished piece looks FABULOUS!!!

Hooray! I bet you're feeling pretty good right about now. I'm not sure how the hell you'll top this but I bet you'll find a way. Can't wait to see the opening night pics!
Ps thanks for the podcast linky, I'm gonna listen to a few of those today to try and inspire a Halloween piece before I run out of time!

This is what postpratum depression must feel like. Painting painting painting, nothing.

Aloha!

Just got back in Kona late last night.

It was so great meeting so many tiki folks in San Deigo at the Tiki Island Art Show! Really great fun - even if we did get caught in traffic when the 5 was closed due to a bomb scare! Sheesh! Barly made it in time for set up before the show! But it was GREAT! Saw lots of cool art in person, got lots of nicve comments from folks, saw GROG, met Randy, got a cool print from Tiki Racer and discussed in depth the connection between polynesian myth and the Cthulhu mythos, chatted with Doug Horne (his new creature piece is amazing!), Hung out with Hassan (head hunter) Patterson - way cool dude, whos ink drawings are some of the best expressive work I've ever seen, met Thor finally (a real thrill, and I hope I didn't come off like too much of a fan-boy), Saw Crazy Al - eh, saw maybe a little TOO much of Cravy Al! And, got to see my tiki art buddy Ken Ruzic! I can't beleive I forgot my Tiki MUG! DOH!

After the Tiki Island Art Show, I went to Vegas for a few days with a friend. While we were there we checked out the new Trader Vics at the Planet Hollywood Casino. It's ultra swanky! Really, they did an amazing, new, ultra hip version of a Trader Vics that is mind blowing and has the biggest tiki in it I've ever seen - yet serve the drinks in vintage looking tiki mugs right off the old drink menu. (I had the chi chi ceramic coco nut!)

I also go to check out a HUGE giclee by Ron English in the Planet Hollywood's art gallery. A cow girl - Talk about eye poping colors!

A bit blurry eyed this morning. Trying to get back into the rythum of work. LOST my digital camera somewhere in the crazed mess of a canceled flight, and a missed connection in Honolulu. Had to stay there over night. It did give me a chance to drop into the Thor Stor in Waikiki. Great Place! Thor told me they will be moving to to bigger place in Jan. Cool!

Didn't sell the original at the show, so now it'll be up for sale through the Tiki Magazine web site for a bit.

Thinking of a new piece, but I gotta check out few things first.

Mahalo~
