Aloha tiki Tribe!

Well, slowly coming out of my decompression chamber from LA to Kona...
Atomic Tiki Punk - no worries, hey, we'll hook up on the next LA adventure.
tikigodz - oh no, U da' man!
hewey - Oh sweeeet shot! Funny how one can never get tired of looking at waves...
HB TIKI - OH KOOL! Looks like I'm still got maybe the Phantom, the Mummy to do. Thanks for posting those!
Speaking of classic monsters...

Finally got some work on Frankie started up again.

Here's a better look see at the kooky aloha shirt.

More coming, as I get my studio back in shape, and I get back in the groove.

Big aloha
B~

duuuuude, that frankie is looking soooooo good. i love the uke, altho the surf angle was sweet too...kind of speaks to the way surfing over that razor sharp "a'a" in da islands leaves one's skin shredded and needing to be stitched up!

quick heads up tho, i am doing a Brad Parker © candy-colored sky on a painting this week...u will probably be needing to send ur lawyers after me for trademark infringement.

MAD alohas, toes

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Atomic Tiki Punk - Yeah I love the old version of "The Day the Earth stood still" There's that great dramatic moment at the end where the wounded alien says...“There's no limit to what he can do. He could destroy the earth, or go to Hawaii for a nice vacation... If anything should happen to me you must go to Gort, you must say these words, "Klaatu barada nikto."
BigToe - Wha? I thought I was doing "Big Toe" backgrounds?!

Painted in the new hand... more to come...
Mahalo!~
Brad~

Your monster series is out of sight, Does it help living in hawaii to create such great art. Looking forward to seeing the finish product of Frank.

Still waiting to see this one in color. I really think this one is just alot more powerful than the hand one (that's cool too, but to me this one just has the extra punch).

Aloha Tiki Tibe!
LLT ~ Hey Kenny! Thanks so much! the Phantom? Not sure if I'm doing any more monsters right now... I think I need a break and n eed to do something big again (30" x 24" ) - but I may sneak back to a few more small canvases of the monsters on va ca. The Phantoms right up there, ...but it's have to be the Lon Chaney Sr, Phantom - fer shure!
HB TIKI ~ Thanks, yes I'd say environment effects my art a lot.

This was what I saw on my evening stroll last night. I never get tired of seeing each and every different sunset here.
Badd Tiki ~ Well, "Faster Than Disaster" is the next painting. but, heck now I was all set to do the reaching hand... now you like da' stomping foot? I gotta' think about this again! (grumble grumble!)

So,
Franks almost done. Think this is my last day working on him...


big mahalo

Amazing work as always , Brad! I think the hand is more interesting artistically then the foot, being grabbed by that giant
hand evokes more menace then getting stomped by the big foot?

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Atomic Tiki Punk - Thanks... I think I may go with the giant grabbing hand. However here's a very scary image:

No, not my cluttered art studio - (but that is scary)... It's the HUGE B L A N K white canvas!
E-gads!
Exotica Frankenstein is finished, so it's time to move on. I'll post a pick of Frank when the rain lets up and I can get some nice sun light to get a good photo of it.

Mahalo-
B

Aloha!
LLT ~ yeah, it's a 30"x24" - not huge for some , but way big after I just did four small 14" x 11" sized ones. It's still raining, so I set up some lights and got inside shots of Frankie. Pardon the non perfect lighting.


Here's "Frankenstein goes to Hawaii"

Here's a detail - last thing I put in was the bolts in his neck.

now.... on to the next one...

Here's it.
Well, at least it's not still blank!

B~

NOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, I think this version is looking better than the other hand sketch. The other seemed a bit distant and less intimidating. This one is alot stronger i think, the hand more ominous. I think it'll be alright

Frank looks great! I was afraid you were going to forget his neck bolts, silly me. I see you got 'em. Nice shade of green on him too.
