mostly caught up on your thread, Brad- always cool to watch the more serious underpaintings of this style. great commentaries from yourself and Thor; i got the same comment from a high school art teacher once, and have always had a love/hate view of the subject for years since. now i just love it all.
oh, and for the record, if i had commissioned the 'cat' he would have the dead bird and a fish bone! cheers, man! can't wait to see the next shot.

Thanks TD, but it's not the current Cocktail Nation pod cast that's giving the art print away, ...it'll be the NEXT show. I already did the phone interview. Koop puts the show up this week, so look for it soon. Or, er... I mean listen for it!?

Anyways, Hey that Magazine put my art on the da' cover too! I guess they do different covers, three I think, and one of them features "The Moon of Manakoora" and pushes the Tiki article.

Swanky!

Tell ya what, who ever wins the art print will get a copy of the magazine too!
B~

Hey Brad! LOVE the new painting! And the amount of work you're pouring into it is amazing! Every time you post an update, it's got major changes... and then more major changes... it's like you've done several different paintings on one canvas, and every step along the way looks incredible!

Congrats on the magazine article... cool cover, too! The on line version is different, so I was excited to see your art on the cover!

Keep up the great work, or better yet, stop right now so I can feel good about my work!

Aloha tiki Tribe~
Tubunga ~ Thanks so much. Means a lot coming from one of my favorite artist/friends! This one is going through big changes. I think I'm getting over my fear of painting out things till they look right. Of course maybe this is not good, as I could just keep repainting the whole thing for ever! But, I think my process is a very organic one - things grow on their own, taking new directions, and I'm just following it with a paint brush mopping up.
greentikipat - Thank you, I was very surprised and flattered by being on the cover. For about an hour after I first saw it, I just sat there gawking at it like kid with a new toy. It's the first time I've ever made the cover of something. Next will be the fall / winter issue of Tiki Magazine.

Here's the paint slapping I managed last night. It seems so dark now. I know it's a twilight scene, but I think I gotta lighten it up considerably.

TD~ Thanks, I reworked the hands, after I did a new sketch.
Tiki Von Tiki Thanks. You can check out the article on line - the whole magazine is posted on line at:

Brad- That piece of yours looks great on the cover! I got a few copies, but only ended up with the seascape scene and some other landscape scene. I wish they would have put your cover issue in there instead.... Also, this latest stuff of yours is very cool!

Thanks so much SAM!
(Hey, maybe you CAN get a copy with my painting on the cover if you listen
to the Cocktail Nation....)

Aloha Tiki Tribe, ...and members of The Cocktail Nation.

This pod cast episode of The Cocktail Nation, some lucky listener
wins a giclee art print of "The Moon of Manakoora".

...and it's not just an art print, but the last "Artist Proof" available
from that run. A very rare item, indeed.

Also, I'll throw in an autographed copy of
"Art and Culture on Maui" magazine which
features an article on tiki culture and reproduces "Moon"
on the cover as well as inside with the write up.

Go to
http://www.cocktailnation.net and WIN!

Good luck!

Big Aloha from the Big Island!
Brad~
