Aloha Tiki Tribe~
TD~ Oh, so sorry you liked the design, cause I completely changed it. I dunno, it just wasn't doing it for me. I rifled through several old books, did a few more sketches, none of which sparked me with any real interest. Then, finally I found a great shot, of a great old design, with (praise the tiki gods!)

...the correct lighting!

Painted out the old design. New one going in tomorow... (if I can squeeze a few hours of "Tiki Art" time in, that is!)
Mahalo from the Big Island~

Robb Hamel says my art "reeks"!
If there's ever an article written about my art I want to use that as a quote.

Here's the mug roughed in.

Aloha~

Hey Brad!

I was looking at the first mug design thinking Wow! Brad should really do some tiki mugs! Then I saw the progress of the new version and I'm thinking WOW! BRAD SHOULD REALLY REALLY DO SOME TIKI MUGS!!!

So start slinging some clay, my friend!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

Tobunga, Thanks! Funny you should say that. I've finally started working with Holden at Tiki Farm on 3 designs! Yippee! Can't wait to see how my 2-D stuff translate into 3-D!

Just got back from the north side of the Island, where I get my giclee prints done. Here's a side by side shot of how the giclee of "Diga Diga Doo" looks next to the original. Perfect! I'm really happy with my art print guy. He always get's it exact! Really made my day to see the new prints.

Big Aloha from a very happy me!

Aloha!

TiKiMaN77 ~ Well, yes, you should have a whole set that could sit around waiting to be framed!
However, may I suggest purchasing the original painting. If you look, I painted the sides of the canvas black. That way I have it hanging on the wall and it looks fine, no need for spending money on an expensive frame! (heh, an old starving artist trick don't ya' know!)

Some work on the mug... and thinking about how to paint fur... and that dead bird that's gonna go in ...

Aloha!

Worked on some of the cat's fur last night. The VOG rolled in today, so the photo is a bit dark.
I'm off island for a few days. Gonna pay LLT and BigToe a visit!
Aloha for now.

Thanks Sam!

I'm off island right now and in LA. (OMG does everyone drive 90 miles an hour here or what?!!) Last night I went to the opening night of Todd Schorr's art show "The World we live in" at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Hollywood. It was awesome meeting Todd. And he didn't seem to mind when I gave him a big "aloha" hug.

The show features four new paintings, plus sketches and color comps for those same pieces. And then, lots of beautiful giclcee prints from his past work. He said he did the four paintings in 6 months - most of the time went onto the big main piece "The Ape Allegory". I told him I guess I should paint faster, he said, "The trick is just to use bigger brushes!"

Google Todd Schorr or Merry Karnowsky to check out the show.

Well, I'm kicking around so cal for the next few days, seeing family and friends - I see Ken Ruzic later today!

Big aloha from Thousand Oaks!
B~
