The shirt detail is so freakin' rad.

I love the mini tributes to other pieces.

Hey TC,

Well, It's been extra busy at the Tiki Shark offices and I haven't had much chance to post.

Here's an experiment I've been wanting to do for a while: Hand tint and highlight a wood cut print. I did one of the very limited runs of the first image Earl carved. Not really even a run, more like some artist proofs.


Aloha!

sweet!

Like the balance - still really noir, but the highlights really lift and add form to the tiki and the girls legs. Any news on the next noir print? Spotted your ad in tiki mag.

Nice Brad.

Kinny called you VOG this time. At least he didn't call you VOG RIDER.

LLT~Thanks!
Tikiracer~Thanks. I think this tinted wood cut is my favorite version of this image now. I've been so swamped with work I haven't had a chance to check and see how Earl's coming on wood cut number 2. I'll let you know when I hear something.

Almost...

I like the contrast that pops on the tinted wood block, very cool.

Shark, this print just gets wilder and wilder! It is like waiting for a child to be born, you feel as if you are closer and closer but somehow, it is just not time yet. Soon? It is fun to be excited to check this thread with each visit to see if there has been some new and exciting addition. And thankfully you have not disappointed.

Wow, just jaw dropping awesome, I especially love your pen and inks(I dabble here and there), congrats on getting into Spectrum, I've been getting those books since the 4th edition, I'm a big fan of fantasy art, bout time they got some tiki in there!

I agree with everyone else, and love the Forbidden Planet element. Great movie.

Aloha TC,
Frostiki ~ Okee, here's "more shirt"...

Got a few hours in late last night after work. Lightened up the pigs.
Kahu ~ Thank you. Yeah, this one has taken about as long as having a baby!
Toshi ~ Thanks. Spectrum is a real treat. Gives you a taste of current art techniques and the fantasy/scifi/pop culture market. I think some carvers should enter some Tikis into the "dimensional" area of the competition.
Robb Hamel ~ Thanks Rob! I'm really digging your velvet paintings! By the by, your Pele "straight on, lots of wookie" sketch with the orange glow is my favorite. Weird looking at art of Pele, while the volcano, a mere 100 miles away, is being so active. Here's hoping your new painting will placate her a bit and she'll simmer down.

Here's a wide shot.

Mahalo!

Top notch work, Mr. Shark!
The painting is really looking great. I love the shirt design and the creepy
green smokey dude. Is it strange that my favorite thing in the painting is
the orange slice? That is a truly beautiful and enticing slice o' citrus.

The hand-tinted print is very cool as well. It has a nice vintage vibe. I'd like
see it aged with wrinkles and stains, looking like it was found in some old archive.

Bela's excellent all the way to the tattoo! That woodblock piece is cool as well. I always enjoy checking this thread!

Mr. Saurus ~ Thanks! I tried to make the orange slice look extra juicy!
SAM~ Mahalo my man. Here's the wood cut now, and now I'm done messing with it. I finished in the night sky.
