Yes, and No. I'm dying to see the whole thing finished, but I also love the slow tortuous progression! This has been so much fun to watch!

Aloha~
LLT~Thanks! Yeah, the mug is getting there. It's amazing how much enjoyment I get out of painting a tropical drink - almost as much as drinking one.
Kahu~Glad you dig the tattoo. If anyone's wondering it's taken from an actual tattoo design. Prints! I felt this was a very personal piece, that only I was into. (I mean how many folks are into Bela Lugosi and zombies and tiki bars all at once?) But, now that you mention it, it could become a print. I still have not gotten my last piece created as a print. I was discussing this with my printer. I wanted a less expensive print. His prices would still make them around $40 to $50 bucks. He makes artsy fartzy Giclees. So, I know the colors would be exact, and it'd be on nice paper, but is that too much? What do you all think?
It would be cool to have this one available as a print in time for "Voodoo Zombie Island". Must be some kinda cool hook up to be made there. Any ideas?
Jentiki~Ha, well, I'm glad you're still hanging in there and watching. This has been a really long haul. I could blame my super busy day job, and guests staying in my studio, and taking care of an elderly person, and me being a perfectionist. But, instead I'm gonna blame the VOG!
Flat Black~ Thanks so much. I figured if I took this long on it already, might as well just focus on making it as good as I can, and damn the amount of time it takes. I do have a art show coming up in Sept, but I'm sure it'll be done by then. Maybe.


Here's more drink details that were done last night.

Mahalo!

Sounds very reasonable (and affordable) to me! That's a bargain price for such a cool print!

Been out of the loop but missed your art and energy, Tikishark!

It's a boost seeing the stuff you've been working on.

Take care,

I.

$50 seems VERY reasonable to me. I really like this piece and if you printed it, that would certainly be in my price range.

Keep knockin' it out.

TShark~

I would say do a print, it just has a certain tiki lounge vibe that would be a big hit/classic in a home bar. And I do think it would be a hit at Tiki Oasis if you are vending there. But, hey this is all just my opinion. And $40 for a gilcee is not bad from my limited knowledge especially if he can capture the true colors of it all.

Aloha~
Jentiki~Thanks, I guess there is gonna be a few interested parties.
Ivanchan~ Hey, nice to have ya back!
Flatblack~Thanks. Cool! Seems I'm gonna have a talk with my printer about making some prints.
Kahu~ Thanks! Are you going? I'm not going to make it to Tiki Oasis, (dagnabit!) but I think I know folks who are gonna be vending there. I might have an idea brewing.

Mahalo ~ (cough cough) This morning the area of the Big Island known as Ka'u was evacuated due to high levels of Sulfur Dioxide! - "The VOG is coming! There's something in the VOG! Stay out of the VOG!" (how very John Carpenter, ya know!)

No, I wish I could make it this year. If you can find a way to have your art there for people to see and buy I would go for it.

Brad, Bella is coming along nicely. Love the detail and lighting you have going on in the mug (well the whole thing really, but you are focusing on the mug right now) and his hand. Keep them coming.

Well, you can see the horizon out to sea this morning, so that's good - some of the VOG has blow away.
Kahu~ R U sure we are not going? How did we miss not getting to something so cool called VooDoo Zombie Island?
Mooneytiki~ Thanks! Color is always a challenge. There are just so many of 'em, and they do all kinds of different things when you put em side by side.
Frostiki~ Thanks, I'm glad you are into the detail shots, cause here's another one...

The sinister swizzle.


Mahalo~

Not only would the mug make a good mug, the swizzle would make a good mug.
