zerostreet - Thanks, it just came to me late one night. I like mixing Tiki Culture in with Kustom, and I thought too bad I couldn't put a wave in here some where...
Badd Tiki - Thanks! Yeah, helped solve some awkward perspective problems too!
tikigodz - Thanks! Now, pick up dat bush and start a'paintin!
HB TIKI- YES, found a distributor who is interested in the Monsters! (remember the last distributor thought them, while very well done, were too outlandish for tourists.) So, getting the last painting scanned in by the printer now. Cards to be made... and prints soon. I'll post here when they are ready.
hodadhank - Thanks! It's all about enjoying the process, right? I know I really like seeing other artist's work in progress.
Here's where we are... all most done!


aloha~
B~

I really love this piece Brad! Excellent job!

I hate to be a backseat driver (no pun intended) but considering the peril this driver is in, I would love to see the car just a bit airborne! Just thinking out loud, not attempting to art direct!

Atomic Tiki Punk - Thanks! The color is tricky, can change it so much.
zerostreet - I think I had a version where it was getting a little air, that changed when I reworked the cartoon perspective of the street and city. Not sure I could go back and repaint all that now... I'm not saying that's impossible, but I'm leaning towards finishing up and seeing ti. Then we'll see.
little lost tiki - KEN! Howzit dude! Oh, yeah, the wave was a late night idea a few nights ago. I liked that it brought in some brighter areas of a dark painting.

Painted in the engine... now doing the flames and foreground.

Aloha,
Brad!

tikigodz- Big thanks!
Robb Hamel ~ THANKS Robb!
Beachbumz~ Howzit!? Hey Thanks! So far so good...
HB TIKI - thanks! Hawaii if great. but, I could do with a little less VOG sometimes over here on the volcano. But, heck, I can't complain, It's beautiful.

Well, for some reason yesterday I forgot how to paint. don't know what happened, but could not get the smoke right for anything... weird... some days it flows so easy, other days it's all up hill.
Hope today is better...
Flames. Tiki. Smoke. Tropical flowers.

ALOHA!

GROG like the face better when it looked less human and more like a giant carving come to life.(Just GROG opinion) You might want to "randomize" your smoke coming off of the tire on the right. It looks like a line of two rolls of balls side by side. The painting is coming along really well. Keep up the good work.
