Brad- Crazy good drawing and inking...



Thank you so much,
Jeepers Creepers I felt so rusty!
I was looking back at Beri Wrightson, & William Stout black and white ink work - boy, those guys are the MASTERS! There are only so many "brush & ink" artists left alive now. It's like an art style hardly anyone takes the time to master anymore. You can count the really great "brush & ink" artists on just one hand! (these guys are ALIVE…I think)
Right? Let's se3..
OK
I said
1.) Bernie Wrightson ( the Swamp thing, etc, etc….)
2.) William Stout ( Every great dinosaur drawing you've seen )
3.) Mark Schultz ( the amazing Xenozoic Tales comic books )
4.) Tim Vigil ( the very disturbing very underground Faust comic books)
...all these guys are AWESOME!
umm… who else does really complex B & W work out there?

Hardily any one does brush ink work anymore… and not like those guys!

Oh …. Tonight's sunset


ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!~

I had called my Art agent who was in town to drop into the hard ware store and buy a bottle of ink, mine was so old, it had dried out. He had a hard time finding it! Why, you ask? Well…...



"You Know You Are in Hawaii When…"

…when you go to ACE HARD WARE to buy a bottle of Black India Ink, and you discover it's locked away behind the counter. Why? UN like in a big city like LA, where they lock away the Spray Paint cans to stops young artists from making "Street Art" with stolen paint, ,,,no in Hawaii, they have to lock away the INK because young TATTOO artists keep stealing the ink to make home made tattoos on their friends!

Too funny!

Aloha!

Couldn't help to think of this song from one of my favorite bands in response to your last post Brad.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Inking the Sam Choy Portrait…
Sam said he always wanted a piece of art of him cooking over the volcano, almost had another artist do it years ago…

So, when I came up with the same idea, he was happy.

Of Course, My version has an elaborate TIKI Bar…

… in the fore ground!
A more mysterious TIKI-Culture feel to this tropical paradise!

More laters!

hiltiki, Thank you very much. That means a lot to me. Sometime I worry that instead of "funny" I be just plain ol' "crazy"!

Aloha, I remain most cordially & sincerely yours,

Badd Tiki- THANX! I try!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

Going to the outer edge on the other side of the island and bringing back stories and pictures to the tribe is my task.
Here's the latest "Weird Tiki Tales" - guest star is Tiki Chef Sam Choy …almost done. If the tiny little bugs swarming
in my studio don't eat me alive I hope to finish inking it tonight!

Chef Sam Choy is larger than life here on da' Big Island

He usually likes cooking with gas, but lava is OK too…

Gotta' tell you the scariest part of this ink drawing, besides being very rusty in my black and white skills, was getting a likeness.
I'm just not a portrait artist…but One night I was up all night... and 5 tr 6 tries latter... I had gotten' enough of the warm and wonderful Uncle Sam Choy down that folks round here all recognized him! ( double - W H E W ! )

Now, I saved the FUN bit for last - the TIKI BAR and the TIKIS!

More later…. hope it's all done next time I post!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
FILE UNDER: "Things to do in Hawaii when it's raining so hard it reminds you of that Ray Bradbury Story where the astronauts land on Venus and the constant rain, and their un-ability to get out-of-the-rain drives them insane."
Well just heard that another big ol' Tropical storm is on da' way to the island.
So, what do you do inside while it's pouring down buckets? Well, you can work on
better looking "Certificates of Authenticity" to go with the Giclee Art prints.

In the State of Hawaii, certain types of giclees ( like canvases) are required by law to be certified.

"By who?" I always wondered? "The Art-Police?"

Well, I have not seen them yet if they exist.

However, if they ever come a crime-busting through Kona's Art
Scene they will discover that if an Art-Patron purchases a swanky new Giclee-Art-Print of this original hand-painted Skate Deck…

"Scaredy Cat meets Mr. Tiki"

…as a "Scaredy Cat meets Mr. Tiki" Giclee Art Print.

You'll also get this way swanky new "Certificate of Authenticity"

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Working late hours…

waiting for the next tropical rain storm…

...That one was loud

I love the to leave all the windows open in my art studio at night,
...and smell the green-ness of the Hawaiian Rain.

As I ink in another take on "The Skull" - I like this version.
It's cleaner, things are more where I want them all to be.
More Laters...
Happy Monday!
