Man!
What a clean Studio you have!!! Glad you're working bigger! Once you get this awesome piece finished you'll see how Size does Matter! Pow! Looking great so far-I kinda like the tonal version/underpainting! Gives it an Old Master's feel!!!! So, when are we gonna hear the story behind this new one?

One thing keeps bugging me looking at these images, and really, looking at images of tiki from all sorts of areas, not just here: stop with the Ku.

I love your work and it's just incredible to see these pieces come together. But most especially in your medicated drawing where you have an alien brain, I thought, man, if any drawing needed those space alien Marquesan tikis in it, this does!

There are a lot of images out there. I'd like to see some variations. Maybe I am burnt out. I'd like to see a referendum to not allow any Moai or Ku images be created for a year.

Swanky, would a Moai with a Ku headdress be pushing my luck?

I love Ku's but I agree with you Swanky, on the Moai. I don't know how even the Rapa Nui didn't get bored with those.

Rapa Nui #1: Hey, I just carved another boring big head.
Rapa Nui #2: Yawn.

Hey everyone....this is my first post! I'm the SCUBA guy who commissioned and bought Tiki #9 aka the Sunken Tiki. The painting arrived here in Los Angeles last week and it looks amazing! Even more stunning that the photos here on the forum. I hope you'll all purchase the prints once they are available, or even better, commission your own painting! I'm actually considering commissioning a 2nd one as a birthday gift for someone.

Hey TC!
Tiki Shark Inc, is going through our biggest season yet. Manufacturing Beach Towels is way more complicated than anyone would ever think - at least alot more complicated than I thought when I started. We picked up a couple new clients, and I had to do the "design" cycle with them. Really I'm an illustrator/artist, not a graphic designer. I can do it, but it takes me three times longer. So, I haven't painted in about 2 weeks! Good news is - looks like I finally got some tiki designs into a major retail chain. Big 5 Sporting Goods will be offering these Body Glove beach towels this summer!

The Pakistani Prince and I flew over to Honolulu for the holiday weekend. Saturday we got lost on the north side of the island, missed a Chinese new years party with my friends, but we made it back to Honolulu and ate dinner at the "La Mariana Sailing Club". The restaurant is way off the tourist track. It's down the street from the prison, in an industrial area, where strange serial killer looking types stagger around the docks, but WOW, that place is Tiki Heaven!

Tikis everywhere!
AND a blind piano player! food was okay, but the drinks were amazing. Really amazing! They don't even offer a drink menu. The waitress just smiled and said "We have a complete bar. What would you like?" Awesome experience! I think Thor and the Honolulu tiki crew where there, But, I don't know what anyone looks like! Sorry I missed you Mo-eye! Later, we saw Don Tiki play in Honolulu at the Aloha Tower. It was so freaking good I couldn't believe it. Fluid Floyd and Perry Coma have created a sound and a show that you have to see. Period. It's what Neo Tiki Culture is. Really. You HAVE to see them.
When we got back on the Big Island we drove up north to Kamuela to pick up the art prints. Looking good!
Now, About all this Ku business. As far as I understand from my reading, the wide mouthed angry looking temple tiki that is commonly identified as Ku is also commonly identified at being made in the "Kona Style".
.....And where do I live?

Thanks for watching this space everyone. Great to see TikiDon here! Cool! So glad a sea sneel didn't get you! And, please check the Tiki Marketplace for my print news...Okay, enough of all dis. Back to painting before I go into total art consitpation!
