Aloha tiki Tribe,
LLT~ Sorry about seeing the show without u guys, but it was great seeing you at the Little Lost Tiki Hut!
Swampfire~ Thanks, if this cat comes out right I think prints will happen.
Kreepytiki~ Big mahalo, lets see if I can bring this puppy er..pussy home now and finish it up right.

Ok, I totally f-ed it up!
I'm still discovering how to paint fur,
and just what the heck the shape of this puss's face is.
And then, gotta finish the mug. And then... figure out what the gound is gonna be. And then... the aloha shirt. And then ...the pants.

Happy Aloha Friday from the steaming volcano.
B~

Aloha Tiki Tribe~
I finally received back here on da' island the remaining paintings that didn't sell on their last tour of the So Cal tiki art shows.
It was nice to see them make it back with no damage. However, I instantly brushed on another coat of varnish to each of them for extra protection.

Even better news, the neighbor's cat left a little present for me on my back lani this morning: a small dead bird. Perfect! I was looking for exactly that to add to the foreground of the Tiki Cat painting.
Photo shoot to ensue.

B~

Aloha Tiki Tribe~

I made a few color changes. The cat's aloha shirt to blue, the ground to a grey-ish purple. Added in some green into the turquoise of the tiki. Very subtle green highlights to the leaves of the cartoon palm trees. Started the base color for Tiki Cat's weird green eyes.

Hope to get more painting in today.
B~

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Urgh... Monday. My head!... wha happened?
teaKey~ Glad you dig it. Yeah, this cat's sorta gray, but I think some blue's gonna creep back in before it's done. My most recent cat I was around was a Russian blue. (my partners cat)
Before that I had a black cat named "Bandersnatch". She was so beautiful... but she was evil. When someone new would come over, she sit in front of them, looking all fluffy. Even though I'd warn them not to, they'd reach over and pet her. Once. Twice. Then on the third time, she'd turn with a lightning claw bite combo. Evil cat. I could pet her all day long, just not anyone else. Anyways...


Did some work on his shirt - getting it shaped out before I put in an aloha pattern on it. Did some work on da pants. And then lots of other things still like.. eyes, mug, uke, ground...

Oh hey, check out

I'm a new sponsor. I'm going to figure out a way for free print give aways, or towels or something on Koop's podcast. I'm gonna talk to him later today and maybe see what we can do.

Love checkin in on this guy. Looking at the little differences and thinking would I have done that and the answer is no and that is why you keep getting better and why I will never be able to paint that good.

Tikiracer~ Thanks, aloha shirts sure does sound like it'd be fun to design. Who knows? Could happen?

And speaking of aloha shirts... here's how far I got on Tiki Cat's shirt last night.

Aloha from the active volcanic island!
