lake Surfer - Thanks! Well, I'd be excited to see a print of any of mine hanging in a tiki bar! Seriously, I think prints will happen with this one. It's take 3 to six months to actually happen, knowing how slow I go. I look forward to meeting you at the art show in San Diego!
Badd Tiki - Thanks! Sorry about the three year delay on the card deck. It's a project that's been put indefinitely on hold while other work ( and personal family stuff ) has moved forward to take up my time. I know I have to manage my time better and feed these hungry forgotten projects.
Kahu - Aloha and Mahalo Kahu!

Aloha Tiki Tribe~
Grog - ah... Do u mock me, sir?!
TD - Mahalo for the kind words.
So, color color ... the bane of my art making! "the wanderer" is going to be a slow build of washes, starting with the raw umber to get lights and darks worked out. Then I lay in transparent color washes and build up. A real Todd Schorr treatment. Of course this will take a looooong time to paint. but I think I got some cool effects on the Tiki in the Vog when I layered wahses on it. I want to go for more of that.

Did some work on the other not to be fully seen yet painting last night. Sky stuff.

Aloha~

Hey, been awhile but always a treat to come back and see your work!

Color's a bane in my art, too--I so much prefer charcoal and pencil--but you do color wonderfully.

That surfer piece is gorgeous, sexy, and full of adventure! Can't wait to see it finished.

Take care,

I.

Hey Tiki-Shark have you tough about this: after you finish you painting you separate each color,then give it a number.after that you just have to print the borders surrounding each color and they're numbers. Everything left to do is to give this thing a manual a pair of brushes and of course some paint with numbers again(some colors could be a mix between the basic paint colors so they're numbers must be like this 75/33 if the basic colors numbers are 75 and 33)

the idea is the customers to paint themselves the painting designs they have chosen


P.S. Click the pictures for bigger size

d0~ Paint by number? What a Hoot!
I used to Love those when I was a kid. It was like a magic trick as the image slowly would appear out of the chaos of lines and bits of painted areas. It was the act of painting without all the stress of having to pay attention to what you were painting. You know, making sure it was becoming what you wanted it to become. Making sure the lighting was correct, the texture was correct. Stress free art!

Well, art can be stress free, at times. Sometimes when your juices are really flowing, and you are in "the zone", it's like you are watching someone else paint. But, most of the time you have to focus alot.

Anyways, I don't know if I'd be able to figure out how to plan out a paint by number. Bet it's a lot more work than you'd think- which shade of what color goes where - then map out the outlines, make sure all the numbers are correct. Then manufacturing the boards, and paints and brushes, over seas cheaply enough so it makes financial sense. Shipping. Getting enough of them ordered to pay for manufacturing. Could be a very daunting project. You'd might want an order of at least 2 to 3 thousand before even consider taking something like that on.

I did work on a collecting "Pirate" coloring book a few years back. A bunch of tiki artists all did one page. Ken and Squid did one each. Then, I moved and I never heard if the book happened or not.

Back when I was a kid, I also really liked those big posters that you'd fill in with markers. They had themes like Dinosaurs, Sea Life, Fantasy land, stuff like that. I guess that was back when kids could be entertained easier - before computer games.

Hey Brad- Your designs would make a great tiki paint by numbers.... It might be a chore figuring out how to separate it into hard colors though. Anyhow, it would make the coolest paint by numbers I've ever seen.

Also, I contributed to the coloring book project as well. I did a Keith Richards/Captain Crunch/Pirate page... the coloring book was a cool idea.

Besides all that, it's always great to visit your thread here!

Yes i know it could be very difficult to make it a paint by numbers but wen q was a kid a also did them and always wanted a tiki painting. So i tough it would be entertaining because nobody had seen a tiki painting by numbers

I saw an awesome product on the craft site ETSY called, "Color-by-numbers farting unicorn." Is that awesome or what?

Great work Brad... pushing the envelope in front of you as you move forward. As always.

It'll be great being part of the team with you at Planet Rooth. We're gonna knock 'em deader than dead, tag team them until they can't takes no more.

Part of the fun (and stress) about color for me is that I'm red-green colorblind, so a lot of my work is based on instinct and theory.

Take care,

I.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
p0~ Hey I think Ken has a Tiki Coloring Book, or at least did. Don't know if he has any left.
Robb~ Farting Unicorn? Now you're talking my language!
Ivan~ Wow, that's quite a challenge for an artist. Your work doesn't show any problems in relation to that. I applaud you!
So, got some work on the "Tiki Mag" page 7 painting.

The windows in my art making space let in a glorious morning light. Too bad I usually work at night.

A detail.

Redrew the third menehune. I originally had four, then decided I didn't have enough room for all of them and dropped it to three. However, I then changed the third one so it was facing more toward the viewer, so it's face could be seen.

Had to rework the figure three times on the canvas. I didn't make it large enough, then it was not working with the composition, so finally I had to repose it on the fly: bringing it's right arm up - this tied it back into the composition. Before, it was leading the viewer's eye off the canvas.
Happy Labor Day~
