"Congrats on the show, these look amazing as a set.

Thought about doing a postcard run? Limited edition would keep them exclusive..."


I like the postcard idea but since Brad lives in Hawaii, I think these postcards need to be everywhere around the world to as many people that can see it. These postcards would look great sitting next to the Big Island volcano postcard and the beach babe, in a spinning rake in an ABC store.

Aloha Tiki Tirbe!
Tiki Racer ~ Mahalo! Howzit at "the devil's reef?" Hey, found a free download of a reading of William Hope Hodgson's "The Boats of Glen Carrig" - -a ship wreck, Sargasso sea, sea monsters, strange high adventure! Much like H.P. Lovecraft, but not the cosmic nightmare genius, but more swash-buckling adventure. Free podcast, nice reading. find it here:
http://hodgecast.blogspot.com/
It was strange working small. Everyone kept telling me to paint bigger - then this La Luz show wanted small...so it was strange. But I think it sure was faster to get a painting done. I like it when the small paintings are all placed together - like a puzzle. But I really liked working at 30" x 24"... and I look forward to going back to that after "Frankie goes to Hawaii"
Postcards - I like this idea, tell me more. You can PM me and let me know prices and details and how you distributed them.
Big Toe ~ Big Thanks! I'm very glad you feel so good about my art, because... I have sketch idea worked up for a up coming painting based on your fink-dragon. So, like I'm glad you don't mind and all... !!!!! I'd so dig seeing you in LA!
Tubunga ~ Hey Mr. October! Mahalo! I'd love to see you and Mr. M at da' show! March 5th, 8 PM to 11PM... or we all go over to the Tiki Ti for some rum drinks!
TeaKEY ~ Thanks! Good idea. I like the post card idea. I might know a guy who knows a guy who works at the company that makes all those cards you see at the ABC stores.
However, the big question is, do you think post cards would create a a problem with me also looking to sell the images for more money in an art gallery? I know SHAG can pull off this sort of cross marketing, but I don't remember if Schorr or Williams has ever done it. (not that I think I'm anywhere near the level of Todd Schorr or Robert Williams, but you know... ya' gotta think this stuff out)
Still, the classic "Post card from Hawaii" is like a art genera all to itself, and my art might work there because it is a pop-surrealistic version of Hawaiiana. ABC store vs Art Gallery?
I'm open to all suggestions from the Tiki Tribe here...what to you think?
Here's number four roughed out...

leleliz - yes, I will make prints. I think I may do something different for this set. Offer a high end giclee on canvas that looks just like the original painting, and then also offer a less expensive print that includes type and mimics the box covers of the old Aurora Monster Models. What do you think? Fun idea?




I just saw this...Awesome!

I think out of all your artwork these are some of my favorites based on the subject. I love classic monsters and these are a great blend of tiki and kitsch.

Looking forward to seeing Frank finished as well.

Great work!

Hey Brad don't sell yourself short, you are a gifted & skilled artist, I put you in the same league as Todd Schorr or Robert Williams

I have been following Robert Williams since the 1980's, seen all his early shows in L.A.
And you got the skills & Talent to!!!

Excellent work! I think the new series is a lot of fun. I myself am an illustrator/animator in the tv design business for many years who only a very short time ago began drawing tiki's. I find your work very inspirational!

Aloha tiki Tribe!
Sorry about the gap in my blog/tread. Sometimes life happens and no art gets done.
leleliz - Thanks! I'm getting back, and getting some work on Frankenstein done, hope you dig it. You nailed it. Kitsch - is it art? Is it an American Art form like "Comic Books" or "Professional Wrestling"? Guess I'm exploring the idea of "if you paint kitsch carefully and well enough, (or as best as I can) what happens?" When does kitsch turn into art? Or does it? Or is it already? Or is that a stupid question?
Atomic Tiki Punk - I... well, wow. Thank you so much for such generous words. To hear someone (i have not slipped a few bucks) say something so complementary about my work is very nice. Really. Big big Mahalo!
zerostreet - Thanks! I LOVE to hear I can help inspire other artists! That's what TC is all about! I'm so inspired by the other tiki artists here, it's the reason I started doing tiki art. Like seeing Ken's work jazzed me into making work I never had the guts to try. Big aloha buddy!
Atomic Tiki Punk - Sorry brother, I was out dealing with life and all it's roller coaster-ness. Now back to making some art!

Here's the first step ... note he has a surf board

Here's the next rough... I changed what Frankenstein had into a uke. I thought it was more funny... and kitschy.

Big aloha!
B~

Aw you bastard, GROG like the surfboard. But, if you want to do the Uke, that works too, but GROG like the surfboard.

Maybe the Mummy will have a surfboard.

Your paintings of the 3 horror film characters relating to Hawaii really are unique. I like Frenkenstein surfing, it more Hawaiian and Tiki. I hate to agree with Grog. Anyway Frank playing the UKE will be great.

I hear ya' guys. But think of them as a set of four. Two are drinking, and now, two are playing musical instruments. It's a monster beach party!
However, If I did a mummy, he would be cool having a sarcophagus shaped surf board.

Brad-will you have a set of all 4 hawaiian horror film characters in giclee maybe 10 x 12 for sale in the near future. If the prints are too large it might be hard to display the set for some tiki collectors.
