I think I like #5 better for overall layout, but it does need the fishys from the next one.

(remember I didn't get my way with 'Faster' )

I love the last sketch, the fish with the mouth open, the large size of the treasure chest and the tiki on the side..

Still wondering what should be more important, the treasure or the tiger shark?



Don't know which should be more important, but I think it would be cool if the treasure chest in some way kinda mirrors the sharks open mouth.

Can't wait to see the process on this one. And thanks again for the compliments and encouraging words about painting over in my thread! I've been thinking about it all weekend!

Faster Than disaster

Ultra swank giclees on canvas AND beautiful giclee on paper (for those of us who are watching our coconuts)
(Hey, didn't take too long that time, huh? Maybe I'm getting better at this original art-into-print thing finally!)

ALOHA!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE
Thanks everyone for the feed back. It'a all so important to hear at this stage.
teaKEY - More sharks.... this next piece is a commission, and the patron just 'suggested" there not be a shark in it. Which, is okay, cause I was having a hard time balancing out the tiki the treasure and the tiger shark all at once....the tiger shark is such a big idea it need more of a painting all it's own.
Badd Tiki - I think you're right...
hiltiki - thanks...that ones not bad...
zerostreet - oh....that's a very cool idea! Me like.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

Secret Project done.

"Tales from the Tiki Lounge, issue #1"

In my on going obsession with the pulp culture of the myth of Hawaii from the 1950's, I created my last painting into a cover of a non existent comic book. (it's just the cover, there is no book. sorry.) Question is, what to do with it now? Was it just for me to see what it would look like? My ultimate tiki-fan pulp magazine? Or, do I make it into an "art print" and sell it ? If it becomes a print, do I print them at "comic book" size (10" x 7"), so the illusion of this being a collectible is intact? Or, do I enlarge it a little, say around 14" x 11", just so it's a more respectable sized print?

However, this whole exercise in obsession might be about recreating the illusion of an nonexistent piece of collectible pulp, so original size might be the way to go. What do you think?

Aloha!
Brad~

Nice Brad! I like it alot! I don't know if you have seen the faux magazine cover Illustration I did. Similar in concept to your idea. You can find it over in the gallery section of the forum. I gave mine a wrinkled effect and was going to add staples on the side but decided not to at the last moment.

I think large and comic sized prints would be cool!

tyger jymmy ~ Thanks. Mister Mai Tai is going back to the printer tomorrow to get scanned in all over again now that I've repainted all that shiny ness on him.
zerostreet - Well, so much for me thinking I was the coolest kid with the coolest new idea. I like yours! How'd u age it? You print it out and muss it up, then re-photograph it and print it again? I was wondering how to make it look like it was on aged paper. I've been looking at the "Legends of America" vintage comic auction books as ref. I guess the whole "gorilla art piece" would be to make it really look aged, affix it over the cover of an old comic, and seal it up in a plastic slip case, and then secret it into a bin at the San Diego Comic Con. Then wander around their booth all day waiting to see if someone buys it.

Atomic Tiki Punk - I'm heading north tomorrow to see my printer and have him print out of few. Comic book sized: 10" x 7" and larger like 14" x ..er what ever the width would be.

Hey Brad,

My piece was, with the exception of the initial pencil drawing, was all done in photoshop. I like to use my own pictures for textures, and for this piece I just wrinkled a piece of paper, tore it a bit, then scanned it in and overlayed it in photoshop. I desaturated the whole thing as well and did my best to make it appear a bit sunfaded too.

I think yours, being that it is modeled a bit after an EC comic, would look great with tarnished staples on the side and some wrinkles throughout, especially on the spine. Maybe even a bit missing on a corner.

I'm a big comic book lover too, so I really like what you did here!

The cover says 13

I'll take 100 please!

Great idea and vibe on that lil project!
Comic book size! Comic book size!

A small limited run on those
and then bigger versions w/o the cover type and stuff!

It looks totally authentic in that plastic cover!

Hey! I got a few distress layers and textures here at work
that might help with "aging the piece if'n you need them....

if that sounds like something you'd wanna play with
PM me pal!



Now quit dilly-dallying around
and get back to BEYOND THE REEF!
