Earl did a tremendous job on the 2nd wood cut. (That Parker guy did okay, too.)

A thought: what if you hand-tinted just the eyes of the mystery woman, either red or green, I'm wondering.

I suggest this because the ink and paper used for the wood cut do not have the sharp contrast of your original pen-and-ink. In that, the eyes popped on their own.

Is it done TS???

Or are you just teasing again?

Can I pre-order right now? LOL

I really want my first tiki shark print to be this one, I may have to take a third job to frame it the way it deserves but it will be soooooooo worth it!

Aloha TC~
Kahu~ Well, with all respect to sneakytiki, it very well may be finished. I'll live with it a while on my studio wall, and see if it needs anything else as sneaky suggested.
Marcus- Thanks so much!
I'm in the middle of a week long business seminar with Body Glove right now, so I have not been able to get to TC and post, opr do any Tiki art. Good news is they held this seminar a block from my house at the ( way tiki-fied) Royal Kona hotel, with a hosted bar opening night! Yeah, I think Body Glove is a fun company to work with (we make their beach towels) - and one of the owners is into tiki. He's got a place in AZ on the river where thy do a lot of wake boarding for the pro team they sponsor. The place is totally tiki-fied, and is called "The Tiki Hut".

ER,,, okay I wasn't paying attention. Billy calls it "The Tiki Shack". Obviously!

This is off their web site.

Yesterday was fun, even though ti was raining here, we ran around with the Body glove folks looking for cool Tiki swag to continue decorating the Tiki Shack. I kept suggesting nice cool stuff, like a complete redo by Bamboo Ben. But Billy said I had to remember that a bunch of surfers and wake boarders usually hang there, and anything too nice always ends up broken or ruined.

Soooooo, we hit Walmart, K mart and Hilo Hatties.

Aloha from the rainy Big Island. We had a HUGE storm the other night. Lightning strikes off the coast, some so close you could hear the voltage sizzle in the air over head. Window rattling thunder. We watched it from the Lanai. We usually don't get storms like that. That's more a Florida thing I think. Seemed like the tiki gods were out walking about.
Was sunny this morning, but now the clouds and vog are creeping back down the mountain.

Last touch on the stars.

It's done.
"The Proprietor"

Next....
Thanks for watching.
~have a great weekend.

That's a simply beautiful piece Brad. You could cut that into multiple pieces and STILL have multiple masterpieces there. Don't dare do that though!

The piece is excellent. I have to say I really got into your description of the storm. I'm a mood fanatic, and I could feel the charge in the air, and the presence of the storm.

Aloha~
Tiki Duddy~ Big Thanks!
LLT~ Yay is right! That took forever. I figured I'd best be like Ken and move as fast as I can into the next one.
Sam~ Thanks so much.
Rob~Thanks, it rained again last night. So I stayed up, put on some Martin Denny and painted. Talk about mood!

Mahalo~

Going back to the roots - mystic tiki old school styles! Nice! Congrats on finally nailing "The Zombie"! I hope you're gonna take him to Oasis?

It actually felt weird to read that it was done. Brad, please let me know when the prints come available, mahalo. Now, I will go back to staring at it again.

Good stuff. The shirt turned out cool. Another fantastic piece. It did seem weird to hear it was done.
Cheers.
