I like the Frankie and Ukulele combo!! Damn that image would make a hyper-cool Aurora style 3D model kit

Brad, bro, your work is always fab with me. Always.

Aloha Tiki Tribe ~
Thanks for all the in-put. I got delayed a bit in the middle of making Frankenstein, and your thoughts helped get me jump-started again.
HB ~ Thanks. 12" x 10" sized prints? That'd be cool. The original paintings are only 14" x 11" (some gallery director told me you always state the vertical dimension first) they would shrink down fine I think. However, I'm still thinking of doing one poster/print of all four in a big square layout. Lesser quality printing so not an expansive giclee, but more affordable. I'm hoping $25 to $50 range, if I can get decent printing at that cost. I might even want to make them look like mock up Aurora model box covers with title text and logos for "ALOHA" models for that poster. What do you think?
teaKEY ~ Big Mahalo for your insight brother. I appreciate your help, and advice. See below for the results.
LLT ~ Oh Ken, I get a boost in my day, every time I get a few words of wisdom from you on this art-bloggy thing. I would sleep on your couch and make art in you kitchen if your wife would let me, just to be around your jedi art master mojo. I'm hoping we can get together when I'm in LA.
I leave the big Island March 3rd. Got's lots of regular-business and such going most the week. Then, on Friday, March 5th the opening night of the group show at La Luz de Jesus gallery, 8PM to 11PM. If you, or anyone in the tiki tribe could make it there, I'd wet my pants in happiness. (Well, my trousers might be damp just from getting in the show anyways)
La Luz de Jesus
4633 Hollywood Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90027
(323) 666-7667
Now, today's crazy-ness has me driving my three paintings up to the north side to have my printer ( who has been off island on vacation) scan them in, then hauling them to UPS so get them shipped to La Luz ....so they arrive by March 1st!! - this could be cutting it V E R Y close as things are not known as being promptly shipped from the "outer islands" where I am. So... hope this all goes well today and my art actually makes it to the show!
tikiG ~ Big Mahalo! Yes , you have seen them for what they are. The monsters are Aurora box cover art, for monster models that were never created. Like I said, I'm thinking of doing prints of these to look like box art. Make up an "ALOHA" logo, (instead of Aurora), put on the model name "The KREATURE from KONA" in funky type. Could be fun, what do you think?
Here's the lateset...

Frankenstein had no legs...

So, had to paint out the old ones, make a little room and rough in the new feet.
Better?

Big Mahalo!
Now, the drive up north...

Aloha
Brad~

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

Frankenstein goes Hawaiian

Working that glowing sunset cloud bank. Working out some dramatic lighting on frank...
this will be the best of the four I hope!

Excited about getting to LA! I may FREAK OUT on the freeway! (we don't even have a free way here on the island! and 55 is FAST here!)
Don't know if Frankenstein will be done by March 5th, how ever, I think if anyone purchases the three swanky monsters at La Luz de Jesus, I can offer them the fourth one at a good deal or something.... gotta have the whole set!

Oh well, we'll see!
Big Aloha!
Brad~

We'll be the judges of that! It's going to be hard to beat the Kreature painting!

Looking forward to seeing you here in LA again.

Grog - Yeah, the Kreature is gonna be hard to top. It sort of flowed out. You know sometimes art is really hard work and nothing comes out right, and sometimes it all works so easily and you just watch it happen... the Kreature sort of was like that at bit. A big labor of love.... hey... as a matter of fact... there is NO WAY I'm letting any one buy that!
I'm withdrawing it from the show right now!
er... wait, I rent's coming up.
Oh well, time to sell!
LLT - COOL! It'll be so cool to meet up some TC folks there! I've never met Heather before ... only heard of her goddess like loveliness and seen her heavenly art.
I'm sooo excited! (now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go barf to let the major butterflies in my stomach out)

Roughing in some wave action...

Big ALOHA!
Brado~

Tsunami!

...blub, blub, blub...

Hey, woke up in the dark of this morning hearing the Tsunami sirens going off! A little creepy.

But, in true Kona fashion, folks in our neighborhood came out on their patios and start joking about, "Hey, bra, lets grab our boards and go down and check the waves out!"
Everyone was home watching the TV, or hanging on their patios watching the ocean. Not too much happened... our neighbors asked if we wanted to go check out Costco cause "Hey, like nobody was there bra!"

I did hear a strange misinformation on TV. Some network said there was as estimated 30 to 40 thousand people evacuated on the Big Island. We were scratching our heads thinking...hey, I think there is only like 80 or 90 thousand people on the whole island. How come everyone got saved and evacuated but us? No one we knew or phoned, got evacuated. so, maybe that was a little exaggeration.

And the live photos of the deserted streets of Waikiki looked like the police where ready for Godzilla to attack Honolulu.

So, till the big wave hits, I'm going to do some painting!

ALOHA!

Atomic tiki Punk~ No worries, high and dry! I live well above the Tsunami zone now a days.

It was kinda fun working on the wave today, with all the talk about the Tsunami and all dat.
Here it is, a bit better along...

ALOHA!
