Aloha Tiki-Tribe!
Here's the current work in progress..

Sunset starting to light up,

And the wood work looking woody!
It's October so time to re-read my favorite Halloween books (or one of them at least)

This one's awesome!

Speaking of Awesome, check out tonight's sunset!

aloha Tiki Tribe~
Here's the new-Art work.

Sketch on the sky and sunset.

Here a sketch of the ukulele the ghost -tiki will be strumming.

Here's the ghost-tiki….but it didn't look right.

So I repainted the design of the tiki on the canvas-
This is one of the most important things to go on the painting and it HAS to be just right.

He's looking better - more in the wide mouth "Kona-Style".
'
needs some work still, but better…

And the ghost - tiki is starting to appear!

Haunting the corner of the room…

I think it's right, better check the lines of the ukulele though…

more laters..

Aloha!

Discovered major f-up on my painting. WHERE IS THE LIGHT COMING FROM?

It's coming from the Sunset…course!

So had to re-paint the ghost-tiki first..

Now going through everything and making sure things work with that in mind.

I was looking at Tim Hildebrandt's art book and theta very important fact hit me today.
To sell any kinda realistic lighting idea you gotta figure out the light source for everything. One slight source should make it more dramatic, so even better. Sure I use a cool fill for the shadows, but the hot sunset out the window HAS to be the light.

more laters!

Aloha Tiki-Tribe!~
Here the "Hotel Honolulu Haunted Hootenanny" still in progress… I got the light sourced better figured out…


And the Waikiki Sun-set is starting to look a little better….

I want to do a few layers of Clouds…this should be the farthest back…. Then a thin darker layer in front of this? We'll see….

More to come!

aloha Tiki Tribe!
My Art Agent and I R visiting the island of Oahu.

We rented a VW and were driving…

Driving on what must be the most beautiful highway in the world.

The road goes right up to the mountains

And then goes INTO the mountains!

And you go..and go…and go… long enough for you to think about how much MOUNTAIN is above you…
and that it was really a Volcano…

And then you think how the HECK did that do this?

And Finally you see the light at the end of the tunnel!
(WHEW!)
What was at the other end of the highway tunnel?
KC HAWAII.
Where they were showing me new mega-swank tiki-swag made with my Tiki-Art

Check out these Mini-Surf Boards…
(Hand made in the USA, not China.)
Check out the Tiki Market place if ya' wanna buy one.

Light that makes shadows is at times so confusing. I've had to re-work paintings too. I'm glad you saw the light at the end of the tunnel!

Fun boards. I see them at Mahalo Tiki's shop. Your art sure makes them special. Congratulations, Wendy

Thanks Wendy!

Aloha Tiki-Tribe!

I was very happy when I saw them too! Ya never know how things will come out till they do…. these came out better than I was thinking.
So….
almost HALLOWEEN, and I'm working on a DEAD-line. (HA!)

Heres me makin' da Tiki-Art.
Next thing I gotta finish up the wave and Diamond head.
Next I also wanna' put a shelf on the wall behind "Scardy-Cat". On the shelf will be three icon-like items identifying out sub culture. Low-Brow. Rockabilly. Tiki.
Three things. I think they will be...
1.) A Skull.
2.) A Jack-O-Lantern.
and
3.) A Tiki-Mug.
...that is unless someone out there can think of a more interesting icon like object that might go on there…. (hmmm?)
Oh Yeah, I gotta paint the cover of then album leaning up behind the record player…."But What Album, Brad? " You might ask.
Well. Here's a hint. It might look like …

This.
But it's gonna be tricky painting it all perspective-y and like dat, and still be readable… might have to get out the REALLY tiny brushes.

2 nights sunset was nice. "Madam Pele" is kicking up a lot of VOG. My friends say they can feel it. I don't know if I do yet.

Here's something cool to watch if ya' got some time, and like cartoons. I had this on video tape back in collage. Was fun watching it again.

"The Collect Call of Cthulhu"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7iLMsJOAxg

Gotta get up early and going snorkeling with some friends - so can't stay up too late painting….but it's a DEAD-Line so Gotta get back to it!
ALOHA!

That's one huge "Forbidden Island" print. And I really like these cool varieties of gecko's we have here on the Island. Here's a pic of my recent visitor.
