Aloha tiki Tribe,
I am coming out of my shock now.
Starting to think. Ask "Why?"
( sorry, I just could not look at that very creepy photo any longer - So I took it off )
"Ozymandias"

I had a friend, Author and intellectual, do a little research.

Ozymandias, It's a sonnet written by the English romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.
"Look on my works ye mighty, and despair." ...But the poem goes on to show that all is just dust in the wind.

This interpretation seems the most meaningful, as the PIZZ was a talented famous artist: Woody Allen's films Stardust Memories (1980) and To Rome with Love (2012) use the term "Ozymandias Melancholia", which Allen defines as "the realisation that your works of art will not save you and will mean nothing down the line".

Ok, this it might fit. But, something still doesn't seem right. Did the PIZZ really end it all just because he was afraid his work would not be remembered?
I find that a little hard to grasp in this "age of information" with the world - it's history - it's culture is always at your key board. And… this will only get more and more so as time goes on and technology keeps perfecting it's storage of everything in "the Cloud" ...some where…. forevermore.

A L O H A to everyone.

Aloha tiki Tribe!
Well with it raining out side, I'm inside finally getting the back ground on this painting to look like something ….

Boy, I dunno how many times I've painted diamond head now, Jeepers Creepers, you'd think it'd get easier… it's not!
Here's that old ex-stink volcano looking still kinda' stinky!

Now, that's a little bit more craggy and rocky , like I was thinking about.
I had to really start thinking about where I want the light to be coming from for anything to look right.

Thanks for watching, more to come!

It's still in the process… but here's a sneak peak at the production of some new "Tiki Toys " Being made by K C Hawaii.

This coming attraction is the "Happiness Tiki"

… soon to be a souvenir in Hawaii shops… by years end.
He has four friends…

What do you think? They are asking me for needed adjustments and tweaks….

What size are they?

Is there a mechanism to make it stop centered on one of the two sides? If so, do they have a way to make sure the outcome is really split an even 50/50 distribution between the two?

The Owner of KC HAWAII ( maker of Tiki souvenirs told me they will spin around and stop on "PONO" or "LOLO"!
We shall believe it when we hold it in our hot little hands!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

Thank you RVICTOR, hiltiki, teaKEY, - Yes, I am very happy to be working with KC HAWAII as most of the tiki you find in souvenir shops in Honolulu all say KC HAWAII on the bottom. It's sort of a badge of honor for me (as a tiki-Artist looking to influence Culture) .
Today…. submitted for your approval:

A painting I did called "The Skull" was stolen from a house in the jungle down in Puna; a sort of wild-west and remote place here on the Big Island, or as the old timers call it "Moku o Keawe" (Island of chief Keawe). This painting never surfaced yet. so I'm doing a drawing of it, as …well, the subject matter was also on my mind for reasons the Low-Brow community knows about too well. If you dig it, check the market place I'm selling it, when it's done.


Here's another sneak peak at another spinning PONO or LOLO tiki… should be out in the ABC stores in January.


Will your tiki tell you about your true love?


Or will it tell you Love is ...Crazy?

HUGE rain and thunder storms here! Wow!

The HOT Humid air drove me out of my art studio to paint on the Lanai


Big MAHALO!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

Before I put ink and brush to penciled paper, I wanted to practice a little. I'm a bit rusty.
I USED to only do black and white ink… now been doing color painting..
I kinda forgot how to do the black and white ink thing…

Been doing the more tribal-tattoo designs for Sam Choy's products…so that's been good b & W work.
But an illustration is different!
SoI started with a Tiki drawing…

Then I'm inking that….
Get me back in the mind set of black and white spaces, positive and negative images.
Tricky stuff, boy I used to be really not too bad at this, now I feel like a kid half drowning doing
the dog paddle as fast as he can in the deep end of the pool trying to get to the shallow part!
GASP!

Slowly working it out….
more laters!

So many cool projects to look at. I know how hard it was to do that chicken. It's perfect.
Very clever to have the chef cooking over a volcano. When I was a tour guide in Yellowstone
National park people would boil eggs in hot springs for fun.

Thanks Wendy!
I'm so happy folks are digging the Hawaiian chicken!
I really appreciate that it sounds like you understand how disturbing it is to make Art in a NON-artist-friendly art program that is "Vector Based graphics" can be…
Jeepers Creepers, I really fight with it, ...but it ends up giving you great printing capabilities. Re-sizing . All that.

I'm gonna' have to do more Vector-Art though.... I have many great B&W ideas for Hard-Core, Edgy, yet still TIKI-Art images for my second wave of Skate Boards…

More on all that stuff as it happens…

Right now, Back to the old fashioned way ….

Here's the Tiki Ink Drawing just about all done.
This also had it's challenges. To get into the right Mind-Frame
I had to pull out some classic Martin Denny, and put on
"Lotus Land" to really get my "Tiki" feeling kicked in!
That one musical exotic track always works for me!

More later!
Big ALOHA and MAHALO!
