Brad.... I LOVE the breed of Palm tree you are creating....It's awesome!! Really dig your sketch style too on all your layouts!! Needless to say, the Halloween pumpkin surfer is fabulous and I hope to the living Tiki God's you got it out someplace where many can see and appreciate it!!

BTW..That looks like a dude I heard was rollerblading on Kalakaua Ave. on Halloween in black speedo's(with a bodyglove logo...ahem!)and a well carved pumpkin head looking a might like this sketch!!! Hmmmmmmmm =)

ALOHA Tiki Tribe~
Big Toe~ OH, I'd be thrilled to have inspired you with the pumpkinheaded surf ghoul. Your Rat-Fink-Dragon is totally showing up in my next painting (number 18)! Or at least my version of it.
LLT~ Creepy and decorative... that's exactly what my art is all about!
THOR~ Thanks, it's fun making up tropical plants. Well it sure helps having a lot around here to look at as reference - then take it to a place more "exotica" than real. Hey I wasn't roller skating down Kalakaua Ave in black speedo on Halloween.... That wasn't me. I was roller skating down Ali'i Drive!
Bigtoe, LLT, and THOR.... wow, I'm really having a moment. It just hit me how much you three guys inspire me. Big Mahalos duuudes!! (snif snif!)
Here's da' art...
Now, I was talking to Kenny and he gave me this idea - some little trick he used on that bitchin Shrunken Head Masterpiece.

I lay some tracing paper over the painting and sketched out where I wanted my palm trees. I also didn't want to ruin to much of the sky.

Then I cut out the sketched palm. And drew on the painting around them.

See?

Then I started shading roughing them in. URK! Orange and Green,.... nice! No, that's not the final color this thing is gonna be. I sort of semi monocromaticly layering stuff in.
Mahalo from the Big Island!

GROG~ Wow! I have not gotten my copy of Spectrum 15 yet. And, I live on a remote friggin island and the ONE book store in town hasn't gotten it's copy yet. I don't know how it looks! It could have been reproduced the size of a miniature postage stamp (I hope not)! Or as a glorious two page spread (as Capt. Jack Sparrow would say:" Unlikely.")
Hey, GROG, ol' buddy, howzit look?

We got a guest staying here, so da art studio is now a guest room. No art is a happening. So, here's some other things around here you might like looking at:

Da beach

Heiau are you?

tiki with plover

under da sea

Cool ride.

Not making art.

Big Aloha from the Big Island!

Looking amazing brad!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE~
Wow, GROG, thanks for posting that. Cool! Just wish they had not put me on the same page with such a REALLY amazing looking illustration. But, That's great! Can't wait till the postal boat gets my copy to me.

Roughing in some more. I put a strange exotic flower on the other side of the tiki-man to balance out the composition.

Mahalo from the smokin' volcanic island!

Is your Tiki Shark e-mail address working?

I just had two e-mails bounced back to me.

Probably Japan causing a financial disturbance in the Pacific.

Or Godzilla.

Tikifool~ ...and yes. Godzilla was spotted swimming past Oahu, so communication lines were disrupted as the military assumed momentary control, and those two tiny Japanese girls sent out mental signals.
Ok. I got a cold, and that may have been the cold medicine talking.
