Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Atomic Tiki Punk ~ Pulp! I picked up a cool old book in the Kona used book store on PULP ART. Some of it was awful - you can just tell the artist was rushing towards a deadline with no big payday, but, some of the rest was really amazing! Images above and beyond the 25 cents price on the cover!
zerostreet ~ thanks. I'm still working out all the shapes and lighting...and then it will need to look like stone!
Worked out the weird cartoon perspective!
ERGH!
Always dreaded that art class... and here it was biting my butt all day yesterday. I'd paint out some guide lines...and could hear my old teacher's voice in my head ... "hmmmm well if we extend all the lines to a point somewhere off the canvas ...blah blah..." Guess I should have paid more attention in that class.
But I think it sort of works. In a weird cartoon way. Which is really what I want. I love the squash and stretch reality of old cartoons.

And I want that in here - more cartoon than real, but not too cartoon...

So I think the street looks like it connects to the buildings and the car is almost on the street (sorta)

ALOHA!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
tikigodz - Thanks so much! The hand is 'gettin' there' - thanks to some digging through some old art books by Brune Hogarth. it's still gotta be made to look like stone before the finish!
Big Mahalo to Dale who lives over on Maui, and who is the owner/builder of the hot rod 32' coup I'm using as a model for this painting. He was nice enough to send me a bunch of photos of his car after I e-mailed him some sketches. He also has been giving some advice on where to tweak the look of the car.

As you can see, I repainted it almost completely after getting the better "scrap" reference photos.

ALOHA!
B~

Love seeing this one develop! Will there be a visible driver in the car? The spider web makes me think Grandpa Munster may be behind the wheel! Thanks for sharing these steps!

OK I'm clearly late to this gig- is that a custom drawing for your mugs? I'm losing my Limoncello addled mind!

Atomic Tiki Punk - Wow it came out so great! Thank you thank you for posting it!
amybean - It started as a painting "Diga Diga Doo" - then custom mugs were made of the characters from the painting by Tiki Farm, then Atomic Tiki Punk was sooooo cool he thought of and DID what I had always thought would be the coolest way to display it all....
and wow, it's like way better than I even imagined!
Now, I gotta get mine all together just like dat!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Atomic Tiki Punk ~ Thanks! I was looking at the old Super Man Cartoons - and also the animated Batman series from the 90's.
HB TIKI ~ Thanks, unfortunately, so far one distributor out here in Hawaii has passed on them -saying they are "too outlandish" for their customers. I'm still snooping around for a way to get them to market.
