Aloha!
I have my printer printing out some of the "TAles from the Tiki Lounge" on his giclee machine.
This should look 100% better.
I also have some kool new filters to make it looked aged that I'm playing with (thank you Mr. Wizard aka LLT)
Thanks tigerjimmy!

Here is the sketch changed to fit the mood and feel we (the art patron and myself) are going for.

Maybe a printed matting that can have the extra artwork that extends would be Kick ass.

Oh, I just discovered the GALLERY area of Tiki Central. Took me forever. Well, I posted my stuff up, so now you can look through wit out all the step by steps.

Tiki Baļ - Thanks! This is a fun mix of many things... - sort of a cross of a few pulp-cultures: of "Tiki culture", and the "Disney Pirates of the Caribbean ride", and the ever popular "underwater-Wyland/Lassen-tourist-kitsch-art" that has reigned as king of the art galleries in tourist destinations like Florida, California and Hawaii since the 1980's.

Speaking of pulp...

"Tales from the Tiki Lounge - issue #1"
Textured, and aged ( many thanks to help in that department from LLT!) to nice vintage patina.
Could be ready to be made into an art print now.
What do ya' think?

Aloha,
B~

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Atomic Tiki Punk - I dig ya! Thanks! I picture in my mind what comic book would Brian Setzer read between sets?
zerostreet - so I'll take that as one vote for art prints of "Tales #1" as same size( 10"x 7") and vintage.

Here's what I did late Friday Night. I really wanted to get every inch of canvas covered. I often work from dark to light, so "Paint it all black" is the first step. This time, I'm going for more blue hues. I want this piece to be a shade lighter than "The Sunken Tiki" painting.

Big Aloha,
Brad~

I would say so! That size would be a nice compliment to the larger print.

And as to the new painting...I love the feel of it already...is that a hint of skull I see on the sunken ship?
