Oh yeah, Great Idea! Did you see "Godzilla vs Destroya" where Godzilla has a melt down, and his spikes melt... a lot of stuff blows up in THAT movie!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Hey check it out... the latest issue of TIKI Magazine is out!

I got a few pages of review for my up coming art show in July.

Big Thanks to Nick Camera (editor of Tiki Magazine) for the great mention! MAHALO!

There's an ad in this issue for my art show too.

So, cruise by your local Magazine stand and look for the issue with the Moritz R. cover. (Swanky!)

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

Step 7....



More detail on Godzilla. Now working on the sea and the wave. Still futzing with the sky.
Want to put in some palm trees, the girl on the beach and some super-neat-o tropical flowers in the foreground.
Lots to go (EEK!)

OK, take a TOKE ...er look at what I'm painting.


"Big Tiki VS Godzilla" step 8: Putting in some effects on Godzilla's spines. Soon... on to the beach, some palm trees and the girl.

ALOHA, MAHALO, and don't Bogart that blunt, pass it around!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
danlovestikis - thanks so much. That magazine means a lot to me. I have every issue! I think it was key in bringing the tiki-subculture together in recent years. And a key stone to our underground international tiki tribe. All hail big Kahuna Nick Camera editor in chief of the WORD o' TIKI!
Painting in prodress...
BIG TIKI VS GODZILLA
Step 9:

Working on the beach babe. Thinking where some nice palm trees might go. and some tropical flowers in the fore ground.
more to come...
aloha & Mahalo!
Brad tiki-shark Parker

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
I want to tell you something. I am dedicating this painting "Big Tiki VS Godzilla" to my good friend...

Tubunga aka Eric October.
Eric's a great guy, funny, a friend, an amazingly talented artist, one of my long time creative inspirations, and an even bigger fan of GODZILLA than I am!

This ones for you my tiki/Godzilla tribe brother!.
Love, aloha, and mahalo!
Brado aka tiki-shark

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
Well SPECTRUM (the art contest) has picked this years winning entries that made it into the book of the show. I have every one of the Spectrum books since the first one. All 18 of 'em. It's an amazing collection of the "Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art". For the past five years I have submitted my work, each year they pick the painting I usually don't think they'd choose. Here's this years ...

Here's the congrats letter they send out...

The letter and the winning entry.

This year "Hawaiian Eye" won
Acrylic on canvas,
20" x 24"
Wow, once again the picked the one I thought they would not pick. This is one of my more surreal tiki paintings to be sure. Guess they like "Weird"!
Past years they have picked

"Forbidden Island"

"Bela Lugosi Has a Zombie"

"Diga Diga Doo"

"The Kreature from Kona"

So, they do seem to like my stranger stuff. I'm honored and happy they do! Glad I was able to spread some of our "Tiki Culture" through this venue.

The original painting of "Hawaiian Eye" will be on display in my "Tales from the Tiki Lounge" art show this July 6th to July 29th, at the Los Angeles "La luz de Jesus Gallery", Opening night is July 6th. So you can give it an eye ball in person there. Afterward it is being shipped to the art patron who bought it. (a very nice gentleman who is, appropriately enough, a law enforcement officer who has a taste for tiki and skulls and cats.)

Here's a link to the show at La Luz:

Here's a link to SPECTRUM: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art

Big Mahalo to the folks at SPECTRUM. The SPECTRUM 19 book comes out in Nov, and is available for purchase through most book stores.
ALOHA!

WOW!!! That's incredible! Mahalos Tiki Shark! I'm humbled by the dedication... and that piece is fantastic! I like your choice of Godzillas, from the Millennium series... my second favorite suit, after the 1964 version (from Godzilla vs. Mothra)!

The movie Grog mentioned, Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, is also known as Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, or GMK for short. It came out in 2003. It's pretty freakin' awesome! If you haven't seen it, check it out! The effects are spectacular, and Godzilla is really scary! It's probably my favorite Godzilla movie... uh oh... yer right! I am a big Godzilla geek!

Mahalos again!
