Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Hey, there is a french magazine named KUSTOM. Issue 21 s the "Hawaiian" issue. It comes poly bagged along with a 16 page supplement on my art.

Here's the mag's cover

the supplement cover

page 1 and 2 -don't know what it sez, it's in french, and my collage french is long gone.

page 3 and 4

page 5 & 6

page 7 & 8

9 & 10

11 & 12

13 & 14

Back cover
I don't know if these are still on stands in Europe, I heard they were popular and the issue was running low already.
Maybe it can be had on the net.

Aloha!
Brad

Aloha tiki Tribe!
Glad to be back posting. The big art show had really taken up more time than I thought.

Today I had to re-think the idea behind the piece... after much sketching and wondering, I think I gained the direction back.
Aloha
B~

I really like the GARAGE pic and the rough color sketches. Neato.

Robb - yeah, I know I love the garage pic too. One day, when I finally learn to paint, that would be a great idea for a painting.

I haven't bought a magazine to post all over my wall since I was a teenager. But I'd do it with that one if I could get it. (but I might also feel really bad tearing it apart)

Awesome art on the french Kustom magazine. It is still available in some places, I've seen it today at my local newspaper stand near Paris !
Really big covering of your art here with Kustom mag, I hope it gets you a bigger public, you deserve it.

HAPPY HAWAII-HULA-WEEN Tiki Tribe!!!!!!
Swamp Fire - Thank you so much! I am in SHOCK... really... thrilled. Never thought I'd be here. Museum event... sell out... it's sorta blown my little art brain.
little lost tiki - Oh... dood... what a battle in the studio it's been lately. I think I forgot how to paint! Post mega show come down! didn't know what I was doing! didn't know if I was an artist any more! Didn't think I'd ever make anything any one would ever want to purchase again. Wow... now I understand the creative cycles a bit more... higher the high - lower the low!
Badd Tiki - I know! I got mine bagged and hanging on the wall just cause I'm still lovin' the look of the bagged package still!
virani - So kool you found it on the stands! in FRANCE! I'm still in awe of the great package Charlie and crew at KUSTOM put together.
Sneakytiki - Big Mahalo! It was a epic moment for me showing there - We were nervous about how my work would sell...now my agent is muttering that it was so darned easy to sell every-freakin-thing that I better get some more work out pronto! Well in about 2 more years I'll have enough for another big show...
So tiki tribe art fans... this painting...sheesh... it's has been a huge battle! I re-painted the sky about a hundred times! layers and layers of over painted work. Now it's basicly roughed in color tones.
I was stuck. Art block.
I thank the spirits of Hula-ween for kicking me through the door. My agent/partner, Abbas, got great seats to a live performance of Rocky Horror at the Aloha Theater - all the shows were sold out, but we got two canceled seats , 4th row aisle. amazing. the show freakin' rocked! There are a lot of tiki tribe folks who are counter culture on the big Island, and something like a live Rocky Horror sends everyones Freak-flags flying even higher than usual. Great show. Best bit: Frankfurter (played to the ultra-max by a full on Mahu!) singing "I'm going home" and strutting out into the audience and sitting in Abbas' lap. What a freakin hoot!
Problem: It was two ideas fighting for plac on the same canvas. I finally worked out one would have to wait for another canvas to all it's own.

Lounge name is "Cat o' Nine Cocktails"

Looking great! I know I should not anticipate what your background will be, but something about a simple flat horizon appeals to my eye right now!...

As to the creative block or insecurities...someone with your talent will always find some way to overcome that! I'm sure you'll do fine with this one....so many nice elements already, especially that big cat face! I'm stuggling like hell with my latest painting. Took some time off from it and knocked out 3 small pieces...did some good, but not exactly the help I needed but I'm back at it!
