"Kreature from Kona" hits me in my soft spot! I've always been drawn to the Webbed Menace of the Black Lagoon. What a great piece, and I love the theme you have going with the Universal Monsters. Let's not forget to add Lon Chaney's Phantom of the Opera to your list of subject matter, could be srt of interesting, along with the Invisible Man.

GROG ~ I do have your address. I'm waiting to hear if it's ending up at a group show at La Luz de Jesus gallery first. But if it gets in, and Don't sell, it can certainly be yours for a price that we'll all be smiling about.
TikiMango Thanks! Next one is "Dracula Drinks... a mai tai" (or a more cleaver title as I figure on out.


Here's a rough so far.

So there's a rumor that when I painted the "Jungle Witch" in homage to the tune by that same name by Clouseaux, it was well received by the band.
So, now it seems they may want to respond in kind. All rum-pie in the sky stuff now, but I'll let you know where it goes.

I've always loved your wonderful, delicate brushwork Brad, but in this newest one I feel that I see a subtle evolution in your technique that wasn't there early last year.

Evolution, no matter how subtle, is difficult at your level of expertise but somehow you're managing. That is my favorite part of this epic thread.

Thanks... I sent the jpegs of the last two pieces for "consideration" to get into an art show in LA. I'm too nervous and superstitious to blab about which show or which gallery I'll let the tiki tribe know if any thing comes from it.

Hey, if you go here:
http://www.artandcultureonmaui.com/

I think you can ask them if they have any mags left with "the Moon of Manakoora" still on the cover. This was officially 2009's issue. The issue of "Art and Culture on Maui" had 4 different covers - mine was only one of them. Folks have asked me for some copies, but I ran out. However, the folks on Maui might still have some. If I end up at Tiki Oasis, I'd be happy to autograph 'em. Anyways, on to the next project...

BIG ALOHA!
Brad




Cool. One of my co-workers just returned from Maui with this issue for me. So hooray for that!

Atomic Tiki Punk ~ Thanks! I'm lighting Dracula's eye's for that Bela Lugosi hypnotic mojo. After listening to a documentary on Dracula I guess Lugosi was the first actor to give Dracula a hypnotic gaze.
Robb Hamel ~ wow, that's really nice hearing that from you. Thanks. I'm trying to push each painting a little more. It still feels sometimes like I'm just learning how to paint. Sometimes it's like I'm spinning my wheels, but I guess if you've noticed, then I'm getting somewhere. Really, that's a great compliment. OK, I'm gonna shut up now before I make a fool of myself!
Slacks Ferret ~ Cool! They did a really nice job on the mag! But be careful, I had mine sitting out on the coffee table - in a bright room - and unfortunately the cover faded. A nice dark basement tiki bar would be a good place for it!

Here's a roughing out of some basic color ideas.
I want to paint the most spectacular sun set imaginable, however, I'm realizing with these small canvases I'm only giving myself about 4" x 11" to do it!
Guess I better get out the TINY brushes...

Aloha
B~

Brad, now your reading my mind! I thought that the only thing missing was the light in his eyes from that scene in the original movie.
So what am I thinking now?
Get out of my mind!!!

ATOMIC TIKI PUNK ~ Yes, I know of what you speak. Perhaps some one, or some thing, is reading your mind? Is it I? Am I sending forth strange mental tentacles of invisible writhing artistic-dream-stuff through the tropical storm swept sky and across the dark night-blue undulating Pacific over the golden shore of the cool land and into the slumbering minds of the Tiki Tribe members?

Or, am I just hitting the rum too hard and listening to that "H.P. Lovecraft Literary Pod cast" too darned much?

http://blog.hppodcraft.com/

Probably the latter. Here's Drac so far...

The sun set needs to be more spectacular. Lots to do...

Big Aloha!
Brad~

Wouldn't a rising or setting moon be a bit more apropos?
I always thought sunlight was a bit detrimental to a vampires health or lack there of.
Just a thought...

That's a good point Heath has.

GROG put the Sphynx in to go with the Pyramid in the background. ( Seems like they should be in the Mummy painting, though.)

Yes Brad, I have seen strange things in my mind since my days as a student at Miskatonic University
Things always in shadow, old things, ancient things.

Fading memories of the old ones.....

HAPPY ALOHA FRIDAY TIKI TRIBE!
Heath ~ You are correct sir. After consideration of several films (Dracula, The Brides of Dracula, The Horror of Dracula - whoa, Christoper Lee is awesome! and of course Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein), and TV shows (Buffy, Angel and Kolchak) , and a dear friend in Hollywood who creates all kinds of movie effects, and is an expert on vampire lore, I decided to move the count to a environment with less sunlight, or even the chance of getting slightly toasted by a lingering ray of sun shine. Heck, something like that could ruin Dracula's Tropical vacation! So I changed the Background.

Still on the beach, and with a red sky to match the other monsters, but no sun. Now a volcanic eruption (from a safe lagoon away distance).
GROG ~ I like your place ment of the Sphinx! Good composition. So I added in big Tiki in that spot.

What might be fun would be, if and when, I do a Tiki-lounge version of "The Mummy" to do a Moai headed Sphinx. Or would that be too much genre bending?
Atomic Tiki Punk - Ha! I hear you brother! I remember the summer in my teenage years I discovered the stories of H.P. Lovecraft. Everything changed for me.
I hope you are also listening to the H. P. Lovecraft pod cast.

If you are in the mood to read scary tales of sea monsters and ghost pirates, check out William Hope Hodgson (1877 1918).
A great short story "A Tropical Horror":
http://www.strangeark.com/cryptofiction/tropical-horror.html
Hodgson wrote terrific horror stories.
Big Aloha
Brad~

The new background really works & fits better with Vampire lore to.
I will check out those pod casts, thanks Brad.
