The new piece is excellent. It has such a Muppet Babies, childlike quality to it: maybe you could start a "Baby Tiki Shark" line for young and old alike?

The drinks, of course, would be non-alk!

Just kiddin', but I can picture your logo for the line. Outstanding work, of course.



I've gotta see your work in person some day.

Wowsers!
That's a really snazzy piece, Brad.
The colors are so incredibly vibrant.
I love the flower. It adds a weirdly erotic element
to the image (please don't let it just be me who thinks that).
The treatment of the sparkly foreground is unique. It reminds me
of the way cities look when viewed from an airplane at night. It's a
very cool effect.

Your work is always a delight for the eyes.

LLT~ Thanks so much! Ha, Diga Diga DUUDE! That's an even better title. What's next is I'm rethinking the lighting on the surfer piece, and I got a sketch going last night for another piece similar to the last one.

Tiki cat roughed idea.
Robb~ Big Mahalo velvet king! Yeah, Tiki babies, but they drink and smoke and hang out in tiki bars!
artosaurus~ Thanks Mr. Carpenter - the foreground I wanted to be a totally different texture and the pointalizim sort of just happened as I was adding in different colors from the rest of the piece. I had to dab in some of that radioactvice lime green for balance.

Aloha~

Great freaky surrealist stuff going on in the Cat sketch and the tiki Mug of a "mug"!
Flawless execution as usual!

Hi Brad - I just saw the finished tiki piece, and it's beautiful. I always dig your lighting details, and this is rich with it. That cat layout is going to look fine I'm sure too. Now if I can only learn to love cats!

Aloha Tiki Tribe~
TD~ Thanks. Yeah, I like cats. There is something H. P. Lovecraftian about cats. Like the character Constantine says "They're half way."
Toshii ~ Thanks so much. It's nice hearing such kind words.
Sneakytiki~ Mahalo!
Sam~ Thanks! Glad you liked the last one. I changed the look as the sketch went to canvas.

I changed the cat. I wanted it to look more cartoon like, and thus, more Low Brow. To do that, I figured I'd make the eyes farther apart and larger until they would sufficiently creep out GROG. Then it'd be correct.
