Atomic Tiki Punk ~ Big Mahalo glad you're groovin on it!
TikiMango ~ Thanks! The hob nailed slippa's had to go in... very big island. No one really wears shoes here. I'm very excited about the LA show. Getting off the island will be fun tooo... it's been a while.
teaKEY ~ "Goooood!" I see you are a fan of the classic movies too. Hey, in Bride of Frankenstein - where he's in the blind man's hut, and there's that really heart warming moment... do you get all choked up when Boris has a tear run down his face. I was just watching that, and wow... that still really works. Great old movie. Lots of funny bits in it too.

Here's the Frankensurf painting so far....
Worked up that wave a lot during the whole tsunami thing this week end.

Big Aloha!

Congrats on the La Luz group show Brad!
That is always a fun eclectic show to see.
My favorite store too. We have been selling
our fluff stuff there for many years. Will try
to stop by for the show and say hi.

A L O H A tiki Tribe!

LLT~ I leave for the main land tonight. Very excited and very nervous! I have not been off the rock since last July. I know I'm going to go into culture shock on the LA freeways ... like I did last time! We have no free way on the island. Cars go about 35 mph all the way around the freaking island. Last time I was in LA I drove from your place in Orange to my mom's in West lake village... I was going 80 mph in the slow lane and cars were ZOOMING past me... scared the aloha outa' me! Maybe one or two hours more painting today...I won't be able to paint for like 7 days! You know how we artists get - all twitchy and itchy with out being able to make art! Soooo sketch book time! Hope 2 see u dere in La La Land!

Iokona Ki'i~ Thank you! It was a real special surprise to get in the show. I went on line and saw some of the other WAY cool work in the show...some very very cool stuff!

So far my fav is mp's painting: Groms. I Only wish Frankenstein was finished in time. Iokona Ki'i, It'd be GREAT to see you there. Come up and say hi! I'm gonna wear a really bright red and yellow fire pattern aloha shirt witha devil face on the back so tiki tribe folks can find me. Now, of course, I apologize in advance if I come off weird... I admit I am a TOTAL social slug: An introvert-maximus. I expect I will have a deer-in-the-head-lights look to my glazed slack face from being in a big crowd of people - there are like a hundred artists in dis show! Perhaps a few trips next door over to the Tiki Ti for a few Mai Tais or Zombies will help!

Speaking of Frankenstein:

Here he is so far...

Here's the palm tree. Yeah I went for more real looking trees this time.

Here's the wave and some more palms...
I'm really getting into these waves, especially after I did "Mister Mai Tai"

Well....
I will be away from my studio till I get back from LA. That's next week. So you may not see anything here till like the 12th or so.

Big ALOHA
Brado~

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
Well, I'm back on da' island.
LA was lots of fun! Thanks to everyone who came down to La Luz for opening night.

Here's the 3 exotica-monsters on the wall at the show. Good news is 2 outa 3 sold.

It got so crowded that soon you could not really see the art on the walls of the gallery.

Christine and friend came up from Redondo Beach - Thanks!

Tubunga (Eric October) and Manuel dropped in.

Tubunga, Big Toe, Tki Shark, and mp!

Tom, Ken Ruzic (LLT) and u know who.
LOTS of friends came by. Wish I had more photos! - Ryan, Nick, Digger (!), Mike (Zallen) and Jeff, Phil (may soon be some cool news ona new high-tec project with my art for you folks who love your Android phones... more news later), Billy and Glen (thanks for bringing the flask!), Kevin, Teri and Scott, and Jen (you looked so extra-hot and hip I didn't know my own neice at first.. sorry!), Mark Parker (da' famous art collector) and Grace, Joe... and many many other cool tiki tribe members ... it's all a bit blurry now... but GREAT fun. Big MAHALO. Thanks for stopping in... really made my night. I'm honored to know such cool people.
...and thanks to the nice folks at La Luz de Jesus Gallery!

It was a crazy fun trip - we did lots of business with Tiki Shark Hawaii Inc, saw the cool people at Body Glove, and
the FreakyBoutiki and Hodadhank in Mission Beach! (Coolest tiki shop ever!)
Saw AVATAR in 3D at a swanky theater in 1000 Oaks that (get this) had a BAR as a concessions stand. Really!
You could take alcohol drinks into the movie! Way SWANKY! Made the 3D even better!
Had some quality time with the family. Ate at the first Bob's Big Boy (da one in Bubank)

Took my mom's car to get smog tested.
Er... that's not my mom's car, but the garage was also a hot rod and classic car shop

- very So Cal.

So... got a few lines on next art shows in so Cal... I'll let u know as soon as I get better details!
ALOHA!
B~

BRAD-I found these old monster buttons today, i think they are from the 50's or 60's Universal Studio made in USA. Keep working on your great pictures of the monsters.
