Aloha Tiki Tribe!

LLT - thanks, I wasn't sure it was the right move, going commercial an all like dat, so thanks for the support in this. Can "low-brow" art sell out? Right now, all I now is I'll be excited to walk by the ABC store and see Tiki Cat or The Exotic Traveler. Still very curious how the average tourists will react.
MauiTiki - THAT'S good to hear. They seem like cool guys, and it's good hearing that from someone else too. And I trust your judgment. The business world is full of .. well folks out to make money. Which is fine, but you gotta watch the water for sharks.
Iokona Ki'i - Mahalo nui loa!

Lots going on. I was in a "Big Island Artists" show at the local Wyland gallery here in Kona. It's Kona, so sometimes events can be sparsely attended, but a whole bunch of my friends showed up and the place was packed - (free booze and pupus helped too I'm sure). BIG thanks to everyone who came by!

OK, back to makin' wit da' Poly-pop art! This one is now offically called "The Cat o' Nine Cocktails".

Here's a close up of the Tiki Bar

Here's a better look at the giant tiki. I'm making it part wood and part stone.

Gotta' get back to slinging some paint!

ALOHA!

zerostreet - those are amuakua / shark spirits / clouds. I think.

Aloha tiki Tribe!

Good news from the jungle drums..... the "Monsters on Vacation" post cards are one more step closer to making it to a ABC store on your next trip to HAWAII!

Here's the "digital proofs" to get the big OK before we order press proofs.

They look fantastic! Big Mahalo to Meredith Spence for making sure all the names are right, and all the colors are bright.

Still hard to believe! These are like NOTHING in the tourist shops in Hawaii.

"The Islander Group" is getting big aloha for being the brave ones who first thought my art wasn't too weird for the tourists. Still, we shall see.... what will happen when these post cards hit the stands? Will they be Hawaiiana Horror Hits? or "too edgy and weird" for the tourists?

ALOHA!

Had a great time at Sargent's Fine Art on Maui over the week end.
It was nice to be shown in the front gallery again!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Sorry for the long time of no posts, but the change of the year brought all kinds of strange mojo with it. The Painting has changed several times in a weird reflection of all these things that eye don't need to bore U with here.

Here's where the painting is now.

Young lady going for an evening walk, or Madame Pele prowling her domain?

More texture made it's way onto the giant tikis... and the "Cat o' Nine CockTails" looks about open for business.

More to come!
Happy New Year!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

Here's the painting so far...

Some tropical fish aumakua and or lanterns and or balloons have drifted into the scene...

And late last night I added to the "Tiki Bar" sign.

More to come!

Mahalo!
Brad~
