I'm still caught up in the TikiShark vortex of goodness. Start with the gold skull and move counterclockwise: your eyes'll just keep landing on something great to look at.

Thanks Sneakytiki!

Well, I think it's done. For such a simple idea : I.E. a Girl, holding a zombie cocktail, with a tiki bar in the back ground, this painting is sooooo complicated to look at. It's sort of detail overload. Hmmmm. All eye candy, but maybe I'm getting too insane and lost in the details? It's still a "pretty picture" and so far every one likes looking at it. So.... I dunnno... a collector friend said it was my best. I think I'm just at that place where I worked too long on it for too many long hours. A good break from it is needed then I'll be able to "see it" again.

It's absolutely lovely. I get to the point at the restaurant sometimes where I need other people to check the flavorings on a certain dish; I've tasted it and smelled it and just been around it so much that I've lost a sense of the finished project. Brad, your finished project is delicious. Congratulations.

I need to see a bigger detail of the girl. Love the way the mug came out. I though it was even great in the second to last step but went to many levels past in the final step.

Nice Brad! Everything you do is awesome, but I find the A-frames are sometimes what I spend most time looking at! Can't wait to see what's next!

Thank you so much, my tiki brothers & sisters, I really needed some feed back on this one. I still cringe when I look at it... I dunno, but I think it is best to move on for now.

I am ok with how the drink looks.... It's just, just, the girl may not be amazing enough (?) .I could keep painting for the next 5 months... but that's now really a possibility with teh art show coming up in July. I got 2 more to do and a surf board! Like the wise folks you are, I think u know best.... for now I am going to make like Paul Stanley on his solo album and "Move On!".

Say hello to "Tiki Cat"'s brother "BONGO CAT"!
This one has been jumping around in my head ever since Tiki Cat made such a big splash here last year... it was on the calendars, post cards, refrigerator magnets, greeting cards... everyone went gaga over it, and I really intended to have another figure in a another painting facing him, like book ends. Wouldn't that be cool in a tiki bar? So here we go... roughed in the canvas.
You can see some extra detail on the full sized giclee of TIKI CAT; that's an artist's remarque requested by the cool cats who bought that print. (Their anniversary date drawn in the sand)

ALOHA & Mahalo for the help!

Brad, you spent a lot of hours on that painting but it all shows so its all worth it. YOu didn't even do any redos like in some past paintings.

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

Step #3 - getting the Big Tiki back and roughin in Godzilla

step 4 - Godzilla shaded in a bit more. For you Godzilla nerds out there (like me) I'm using the "Uber-tall-back-spikes Godzilla" from "Godzilla 2000" as reference. It's my fav Big G design.

Decided to make this giant Tiki a split in two 2-toned tiki. Makes him look more like a classic Japanese super hero. And I'm still working through my weird gemini-tiki thang.

BIG ALOHA!

Dang it, Shark,

This is one of my favorite things. Once again, Brad, there's great stuff everywhere I look at this one. Actually, after you wrapped up the Zombie Mug, I was thinking, "Godzilla vs. Tiki. Godzilla vs. Tiki . . ." and there it is.
