so you pay and leave faster?
to keep the bodies downstairs from rottin?

Finals on the Moai composition=Brilliant!
The Volcano Head is a Sure Shot!
Hope the Lower Back's feelin better,pal!

i do hope you're Hiring some movers
with your back and all..
just sayin....

Man, Brad, I just really like your black and white work! And I agree with the loosing of the feet, it's somehow un-Tiki. The grabbing Moai monsters are very much in the tradition of Jack Kirby.

ALOHA!

Thanks everyone!

WOW, LOVE that comic cover. Gave me an idea for a new painting!

Sorry for the delay. My land lord, Mr. Scrooge has tossed me out - at X-mas. So eveything is total chaos!

My e-mail will be down till middle late next week.

Have a great holiday!

Brad

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

So got my new studio up and working this week end. Lots of boxes still in other places of the house. But I had to get my art space together and get caught up on print orders or lose what's left of my mind!

Here's an Artist's Proof of Tiki Cat getting a last coat of varnish.


for the Artist Poof I go in and make the mug much more shinny.
And paint in a mini-tiki by my signature.

ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

I was asked to submit 5 to 7 small and detailed pieces to a group show in LA. The show wants Kitchy. Great news! I gotta get them done and submitted by the 3rd week of Jan. That's gonna be a a bit of work, since unlike Kenny, I'm a s l o w painter. So, I will have to stop work on the 32' Coup hot rod being grabbed by the erupting Moai - that painting is too large. And start 5 new small ones. I'm thinking these are gonna be like 9" x 12" or something.

Here's a sketch for Idea #1:

"The Were-Wolf of Waikiki"

Mahalo

Looks like a Mad mad Monster party

Welcome to your new diggs,Brad!
Good to see the studio is slowly coming together...
That's usually the first thing unpacked!
Who needs dishes and drawers of undies?
Gimme some brushes
a surface
and MOVE-IN is finished!

Happy New Year Buddy!

Love the werewolf image, can't wait to see the finished piece, and all the rest in the series!

Where is the show? Are you coming out for it? We mainland landlubbers see FAR to little of you, Mr. Parker!

LLT~ Thanks Ken! Yeah, I'm still walking through a maze of boxes, but I got most of my studio un packed. Hey, I found my Martin Denny CD... it was in my car! whew!
Tobunga~ Hey Mr October! I was pleased to see that the Tobunga creature was mentioned in the latest issue of Tiki Magazine - in the piece about tiki themed horror films! Made me laugh and think about you! Well, I don't know how this will turn out. I'm moving forward with some ink work on this cool old paper. tomorrow I'm driving up north to see what my printer has done, and go to Ben Franklin's to pick up some art supplies. Like 5 small canvases...



More later!
