I was up late working on the tiki.
don't have a good photo of that... but here's the start of the next one. The invisible Surfer. Part of the monsters on vacation series.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!


Here's where the sunken pirate ship painting is now...

A better look at the tropical fish.

Almost done. I had to take a little time off and get a cold, get better, and then get ready for, and appear at, the Mai Tai Contest at the Royal Kona Resort here in Kailua-Kona. It was a blast!

Night before the event, me and my partner went down to the Royal Kona to check out the action. Glad we did! The drummer from "Third Eye blind" DJ-ed in the open air Mai Tai Bar and drummed live to the tunes. I was honored to have my art displayed on the walls the Lobby. Great weather, and fantastic sunset off the Kona Bay. What a magical evening.

Lots of people showed up the next day. BBQ contest during the day. Henry Kapono played live by the hotel pool - Awesome! If you don't know Henry's music look him up. His album "The Wild Hawaiian" took some classic Hawaiian chants and played them as rock. I think of him as the Hawaiian version of Carlos Santanna.

Many tiki tribe members came by my "booth" and said aloha - nice meeting folks in the flesh instead of only on the net. Big big Mahalo to everyone who came by and to Dug Miller, thanks sooo much for the cool mag (and asking the Royal Kona to use my art on the event T-shirts next year!) U da BEST! Everyone at the Royal Kona treated me so well. After the vendors all left, I was asked to paint in the lobby - where I got to sell more art as the Mai Tais flowed an the crowd filled with "aloha".

I'm really happy with how the event went. I did really well, I didn't sell everything, but sold a bunch of prints. I don't think I've ever been handed that much loose cash in one day, (....or shake someones hand and find out I was handed a small plastic bag of fragrant green pacalolo - talk about nice tips! Sheesh! Boy, you can sure tell this event was happening on the big Island! My inner teenager was delighted and wished I had been this popular in High School!)

I got to meet up with Gecko again, and trade a print for a really fantastic Tiki Mug! Big Mahalo!

Today my voice is gone, my feet are sore, and parts of me are sunburned... but many happy memories. Can't wait to do it again next year!

ALOHA!

Could you put a little more design into your work! I feel like an insane-level minimalist after seeing this latest Super Cinerama Technocolor maxamalism masterpiece.

You outta include some flourescent paint touches on this one - with a blacklight that'd be a sight in person, fo sho.

Robb Hamel - Thanks Rob! Yes this one was HUGE, and kept getting huger as I went! I just finished it late last night.
crazy al - BIG MAHALO!
Atomic Tiki Punk - Oh sheesh... the details were growing... it was like building a reef with a freaking tiny paint brush.... but the fish were tons of fun to do.
little lost tiki - yeah I went out and looked at old palm trees in my area, plus down at the place of refuge - the tikis there are all weathered.
zerostreet - THANKS!


WELL.... it's done!!!!!
The huge-sunken-pirate-ship-and-tiki painting is done!
Whew!
I was up late finishing it. Am I gonna post a big fat photo? no. I'm gonna be a total tiki-Creep and save it for the OPEN NIGHT at my art show Sept 25th at the Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Center.
Check out the stuff you'll see at this link:
http://www.laluzdejesus.com/shows/2010/Tiki-Shark/Parker2010.htm

Come on down and gawk at the originals, high end giclees and even reasonably priced giclees on paper which I will personalize to you if you so desire.

Hope to see you there!
ALOHA
