ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

Big Mahalo, Wendy.

Submitted for your approval...

T I K I - T O Y S
The prototypes for my new "Tiki Toys" fresh from the fine folks at KC HAWAII following my designs. The final products should reach the world about the time of my big TIKI ART show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery next July, 2016. There, I'll have for sale the original production sketches and drawings, as well as final product and limited editions hand painted by me.

BIG MAHALO!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
thanks RVICTOR!

A group shot of the various TIKI-TOYS and the three sizes they will come in.
Things being worked on:
1.) spinning mechanism. Idea is you spin your "Lucky Tiki" and it whirls around and stops on one side or the other side. One side is "Pono" ( good) The other side is "Lolo" (crazy ) - this will be the toy's fortune telling feature. You luck today is gonna' be good, or …ah, not so good. Unpredictable we shall say.
2.) Paint. Green teeth? I think that's not right. Perhaps it seemed a good idea at the factory? Changing that to gold or light wood color. Not sure I really like that overly bright yellow either. I 'm gonna try to keep to a wood / tan and brown pallet.
3.) Spinning Mechanism - the tiki spins in the wrong place! It should be then top of the stand and the tiki that spins.

Well these things are all a part of getting anything manufactured. More on these little guys later.
I hope to have them ready for the world by next July, 2016. When I have an art show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in LA. I'm showing / selling production art and designs - all the way through the creation process to finished product. Plus, a few sets of hand painted Tikis by me! I always wanted to show Toys as Art, now I finally get to do so.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Hope u had a great Turkey Day.

I was lucky and got some grub from my bud Tiki Chef Sam Choy.

Finished up some work for the local gallery.

Then Did a little Island Hopping to see family and Friends.

I've been working on an image in my head for a while - a Hawaiian Dragon. A Mo'o - of which there is a few myths, but no real description. Finally, while I was waiting in the lobby of a swanky hotel in Waikiki, it came to me!

I researched the Hawaiian Word for Dragon and found it applied to a few large beasties, one being a shark - so I mixed a dragon with a tiger shark.
This might work!

More laters!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

HAPPY ALOHA FRIDAY!~

Paintin' a Skate Deck that was miss printed too dark. Is stead of wasting a beautiful maple deck, I chose to re-paint it with a new back ground, and I'm gonna re-paint the tiki with a new more "LURID" light scheme. This new paint job seems to have grabbed the public's interest as it got a record amount of "likes" in a short amount of time on places like FB and insta graham. Guess skulls are always popular with the counter culture crowd.

ALOHA~ & Mele Kalikimaka, TIKI TRIBE!
Working on more Low-Brow Tiki Art for my next Art show...

"Revenge of the Kreature from Kona"

Here's a more roughed out Kreature, with a Surf Board this time.
Maybe a wave or a tiki over his shoulder… hmmm…
I watched the classic film again today, & had an idea of putting a cool Tiki in his sub-mariner cave-lair.

"Christmas CHEERS!"
I'm having a Blow-Out Sale on my new SHOT GLASSES in the Gift Shop at the Royal Kona Resort.

Another beautiful December Sunset in Kona…
ALOHA!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

I just watched one of my Favorite Christmas Movies!

It reminded me of how much fun I had last time I was at FORBIDDEN ISLAND Tiki Lounge!

So I called Michael and asked if I could do it again, he said sure!
So hope to see you at FORBIDDEN ISLAND on Dec 20th - a Christmas Tiki-Shark Swag BLOW Out Sale, and sign-o-Fest!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
So, see ya on Dec 20th…
Other than that I've been working on the Night Marcher's EPIC piece again.

Some rather dramatic changes took place. I re-engeenered the Stairs, as they were not working as Menehune or M.C. Escher structures for me.
This is looking better and better.

Brad's Imaginary Low-Brow Art Muse Sez;
"Yeah, No worries! All he had to do was re-paint almost everything, and now it's staring to look better. Easy!"
