Brad! You crack me up! I love how minimal your space is and yet your world is so rich and deep! I won't even post a pic of my studio, it's such a mess...sigh!

At least you guys have a studio. I've got a desk set up in a tiny little corner of the living room with a bunch of boxes full of comics and other supplies stored under my desk cuz there's nowhere else to keep it all. I need a studio....

surburbanpagan~ Ha! Yeah, I'm going to stop complaining. I've had much much worse places to work. Having to convert it into a guest room helps me keep it clean, sort of.
Tikiman77~ Ouch! That's rough! I was just reading about Patrick Woodrofte, and a period of his career where he also had hardly any space to make art.
Many years back, I remember renting a very small room, having a drawing board laying on top of boxes filled with comics and art books - and sleeping on a futon I'd unroll beneath my art table. Sometimes we end up in... er .. challenging environs (I was going to say real sh*t holes), but I guess, what's important is that we keep on making art.
Okay, here's whats new...

Man, Brad. i just find it incredible how you create a light source so vibrant and real!

Very nice

Brad
Love the strong blue foreground light and the creepy hazy background lighting! So fricken' mysterious! Once again, you nail the flavor of exotica!

Tiki Duddy ~ Mahalo! Yes, it's all about the light. Where it's coming from, warm or cool, how it reflects off the surfaces. (You look at that book by Tim Hildebrandt I told you about yet?) Thanks, now... get back to painting you!
Suburbanpagan~ Thank you! That is a real complement. I try to create a world in my paintings in which you'd likely to hear all those weird "bird calls" from those haunting exotica tunes. What are those animal making those sounds supposed to be anyways? Birds? Monkeys? Mutant jungle cat / monkeys? What ever they are, they are exotic.
Seafoamer~ Thanks so much! I think color is still my bane, and I always have a color wheel within eye shot.
Dirk Yates - Big mahalo Dirk! Wow, getting nice words from an artist of your caliber is always a treat! I've love your stuff!!

hey brad - nice job on the tease photos for the new piece - enlarging in photoshop doesn't help much.

Any news on the next noir print?

tikiracer ~ thanks, next wood cut print news: Earl is moving to Florida (just so he can be close to the Mai Kai I think) so, his whole studio has been taken apart and is in route. It may take him a bit to get all set back up. So, not sure when the next one will be finished.
LLT ~ thanks!~ I can't wait to see you in Sept too! Is there gonna be after parties at any place in SD post art show?
Hodadhank ~ Thanks, and Of course!
Tikidudy ~ mores a coming, but since I cant really show it, I'm gonna show the start of the next painting. (I'll be doing a Ken and working on both)
tikithomas08 ~ Big Mahalo, I totally screwed up the sky, took LLT's advise and just kept painting till it started to look good. Actually his advise was "don't freak, you can just paint over it". So I did.

Finally got the last two paintings up to my printer for scanning and making into prints.

He's way up on the north side of the island. Where it's windy all the time. Funny how paintings wanna turn into kites in a strong wind!

Aloha~
