Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Thanks zerostreet -

Here is where it is now...

Big happenings here on the Big Island. This week end is the 2nd Mai Tai contest at the Royal Kona. Judges this year include Beach bum Berry and Mac Fleetwood! dig it! And they put up a bunch of my full sized giclee on canvases in the lobby - really decked out the place with tiki art. They did the same last year, and I'm honored they wanted me back.

Aloha Tiki Tribe...
Mai Tai Festival was loads of fun!

Here's me doing a touch up on a giclee at our booth...

We sold all kinds of swag, towels and calendars, and even Stephen Grogan (author of "Captain Cooked"), came over from Vegas and signed his book at our booth. Why is his arm in a sliing? Just the day before he was checking on the location of one of the clues in the treasure hunt in "Captain Cooked" and took a spill tracking through a Lava Tube! (Ouch! Make that one Mai Tai and one Pain Killer please...)

After the Mai Tai contest we hit Okolemaluna for the after hours party, and said congrats to Brice for winning the "Peoples Choice" Tiki Trophy for best Mai Tai! Hooray!

....also this week end I did a gig at the Wyland Ocean Front Gallery...painting in public is always interesting...

Here's the latest. I got some fore ground in, and re-worked the tiki head. Still roughing out the right shape to the shark. Feeling better about the piece, I had a rough patch of artist block, but now seem to have worked through it. More later...

Here's the next step... I have the basic bg color down on the Tiger Shark... next to paint on it's stripes.
Yes, I'm saving the tiki for the last!

I like the tan brown tone a lot better on the shark. Awesome stuff. Do you always paint a under layer of black and white, or is this a new technique for you? I don't think I noticed it in the other paintings in progress?

zerostreet -Yes, I wanted the "Tiger" shark to be a real tiger color, so it would stand out from the cool blue and green back ground.
tigertail777 - Yeah, sort of. I'm trying to learn the technique of under painting and then laying on semi transparent layers of color to tint it. A bit tricky, and I usually end up just re-painting things till they look right.

Some more of the shark painted in.... more to come...

Click on this link....
http://leejosephpublicity.com/show/laluz25

This link will take you to a list of artists who are in the 25th anniversary show of "La Luz de Jesus" Gallery, in Hollywood. If you scroll down and hunt around, you'll find my name in there. I'm really excited to be in a show with so many of the biggest names in the pop surrealism / Low Brow Art movement of today. A huge thrill... and yeah, of course, I painted a TIKI to represent our particular exotica flavor of the current hipster cultural art scene.

(Here's my entry into the show.)
The show's opening night is October 7th, and the show hangs through November. Good time to go down to Hollywood Blvd & Sunset and check out the cutting edge of the west coast art world!

ALOHA!

LLT~ Thanks Buddy! I hope so, I had to work through a bit of artist block on this one, so it really helps to hear it's starting to come together better. Still saving the Tiki for last.... like desert, the most fun for the end ya know....let's hope I can make him one of the best ever...

Here we are so far. The Tiger Shark is coming along... almost done...working on making him look wet, then the splashing wave ...then the TIKI!
More to come.
