Grog -Thanks, But, the Scuba diver (Tiki Don) is back and knows it's done. He's been watching on TC too! Keep watching , I know you'll get one if you really want it!, Rev Bam Boo Ben - Paranormal! Yeah, now that you mention it, there's all kinds of creepy faces in there. (And I thought I was subliminally putting in phallus's!), LLT - I know buddy, it's non-carbonated!, Vampy -now now let's play nice! , Bora Boris - Yeah, he does look mad about that eel!, frostiki -It was like immersion therapy, you looked at that eel for weeks till it didn't bother you anymore!, JPmartdog - Thanks for the kind words!, Sneakytiki - Mahalo!, Hewey - thanks! the next one...hmmm..., Tiki-Tonga - Thanks! a print. Yes, I think this one could be the first art print., Joontiki - Wow, thanks! Okay, a print. I talked to local art gallery folks, and they told me of a guy who makes fine art prints here on the Big Island. So, I don't have to send off to Maui or LA to get them done. Cool, saves some cash! So, here's a question. How much do you think I should charge for a fine art print? $100.00? What size? I have to figure out how much to spend on getting them created, what size, an all that. Never done this before... so what would you pay?

Ken urged me to sketch while I was all hopped up on cold medicine. So I sketched up this weird tiki-fever-dream............

So, it's a wahine sitting in a tree in front of a volcano being served a smoking tropical drink by a "Robby the Robot" looking tiki, that is delivering it from a Tiki Lounge, that is actually an abandoned science lab harboring an alien brain that wouldn't die, (ala "Donavon's Brain") with a giant moai carved into the mountain behind it. (My my, that cold medicine WAS good stuff!)

Don't know if that's actually my next painting, seems a bit crowded... but I do like the "Robby the tiki" waiter w/the wild drink. Perhaps I'll re-sketch it.
Thanks everyone, that's all from this Tiki Shark fer now...
Aloha from the Big Island!

Hey TC,
so I'm doing a Tiki Tattoo design. Here's the first Rough

Three tikis....
But then I was told the three tikis are to represent this guy's family : wife, Daughter and son. So...

Here's the second rough.
Aloha, I'm off to gesso the next canvas...

Amazing Shark. Where do you get it from? I wish I had 1% of this imagination to draw from.

Brad!
Robo-Trippin Fever Dreams! (was it the DM-daytime medicine?-that's the best!) Your Robo-Tiki sketch is off the top! It's like a Todd Schorr meets Flounder meets Brueghal and Bosch with Dali art-directing! Make that sketch into the HUGE painting (6x6 footer) you promised you'd do! that way you can work on the smaller pieces and take your time on this involved piece! Rock on wit yo bad self! More phalluses!

Subliminal phalluses? Ok, i was so mesmerized by the rest of this painting that i failed to notice the subliminal phalluses. Maybe because they were subliminal? Ok, now i REALLY have to have that print! Gotta have the phalluses!

Price-wise, it depends on how big this print is. I'm hoping not too big (there's only so much room on one's wall), but i'd pay $100. Whatever you feel will be a fair price is fair by me.

Hey TC,
McTiki - Thanks, I think you're right. I like the idea of a tiki/robby serving a mysterious Wahine too. I think that will be mystic tiki #11
Hewey - Thanks, the strangeness of it is growing on me too. Would it be too much if Godzilla was playing a ukuklele off the coast? Hmm.... maybe that's mystic tiki #12.
LLT - Ken, thanks again for the tip about the cold med. It was sudafed I think.
Joontiki - Yeah, they are paranormal aquatic phallus's! Wow, thanks! I did talk to the fine art print guy up north. He's getting a photo of #9 for reproduction. I looked as his work, and it's good. I think I'm going to go with a 16" x 20" (full size), limited edition Giclee, on a heavy water color paper that's been treated to keep really dark blacks and saturated blues. Should be really true to the actual image. I looked all over the web at what other artists are offering prints for, and it's all over the place! . $20 to $2,000! Giclee's are usually a couple hundred to several hundred, so at $100 I think I'm in the ball park, but not out of reach, I hope. What do ya think?
So, on to Mystic Tiki #10. It's another commission. 30" x 20" Here's the sketch... it's a bit strange.

It's called the tourist. There's a joke in there... somewhere...
Aloha from the Big Island!

TSA, I really enjoyed looking at your new drawings (and old one's). Your drawing skills and imagination really floor me. Top notch!

Interesting! Is the puppy a scout for the cruise liner? Did the puppy and tiki take over the native village and eat everyone, and are now planning their attack on the cruise liner? How big is the ships keel - it looks very top heavy! Where are the bubbles?
