Chalk up another victim for that damned dog. I don't know how someone is going to be able to live with that in their house! (no disrespect intended as to its artistic and technical merit...)*

I'm really digging all these sketches you're posting Brad - there's something nice about seeing raw ideas or characters that have yet to reach their full potential. Plus the fact I have always loved pencil and pen & ink stuff, it was all I was interested in for years before I started carving. Who needs colour anyway? Apart from Ken - I think he'd be dead within a couple of weeks in a black and white world!
These skull tikis would make pretty sweet mugs too....Holden, are you reading this?

* having just scanned the thread again, are you saying the recipient/commissioner actually owns dog the in the painting?

PPS are you a Bernie Wrightson fan by any chance?

Hey TC, Happy Easter,
Paipo~Yep, that's the patrons little dog in #10. She's REALLY excited about it, I hear. Which is cool. I aim to make the art patrons happy. Ken, I guess got all up and hot about your black and white comment, so take a look at all the cool mono-colored stuff he posted on his thread! That guys responds! Instant Karma! Pencils are fun. And yeah I'm a big Berni Wrightson fan! I have all his Swamp Thing issues, and have had the great joy of meeting him a few times. Great guy! Amazing artist!
Sneaky~Now you're calling me stoopid? What the... huh? Oh, yeah, I get it. I'm all hip with the lingo the kids are using. Ah... Ah... and stuff. Dawg.
Okeedokeee (now that's hip lingo) Here's a Pencil sketch for painting #11 (nifty pencil sketch huh, Paipo? I posted this for you!)

Mystic Tiki #11: Cave of the sea god. (or maybe it should be called RAVE of the sea god?)
I was going to try something small and simple after the last one. But I had this vision of this mysterious wahine and I wanted to explore that sketch I did the the sea god tiki, so it ending up like this. The canvas is 30" x 24". Bigger than the last one. So much for smaller and simpler. So, like about three months from now we'll be looking at it finished! That gives us plenty of time to discuss all the hidden meaning of this one! And look, no puppies!
Thanks for looking,
Big Aloha from the Big Island!

McTiki~Oh, well since you asked so nice.. perhaps we can arrange $omthing? Ah... are you talking about the sketch or the painting? (if your kidding no worries)
LLT~ Thanks Jedi Tiki Master. And check out the u know whats!

I put em in just for you Kenny!
Groggy, no, the sketch is about 7"x9", just in my sketch book. I actually thought If I kept the sketch small I wouldn't make the composition too complicated to paint. Not sure that idea worked.
Mahalo from the volcano!

LOVE the creature mug!

Bernie Wrightson is awesome! I want a copy of his Frankenstein, the Mary Shelley one that he illustrated, but I've only found those for about $200+

your work is so amazing, your compositions keep astounding me, always great compositions! I can't wait to see this with color

I would kill to have your understanding of light and shadow

Whoa!(Keanu Reeves style) You're joking? The Marvel paperback one? Pretty sure I've still got mine kicking around somewhere - one of handful/boxful of things I kept after quitting collecting in the late 80s.

I can definitely see the comics (and horror) influence in your work TSA, it's one of the reasons I dig it so much. I've said this a couple of times already, but this one is gonna be the best so far, even though you haven't even painted it yet! Having the wahine as a major focus along with the tiki (and with the tiki itself being much more dominant than in the others), bumatay fish-face tikis and mugs, shell lamp, skulls, a starfish with an eye, strange pagan firelit rituals...it's got it all! The composition on this one really stands apart. Bring it on!

I really like the creature from the black lagoon type mug. As far as putting bubbles in there, you covered up the "u know what" bubbles I wanted to see. Loosen that lei girl! Really nice drawing and great closeup composition. It's kind of a departure from your other pieces in the closeup aspect and including a human figure.

I've been painting about 2 years or so. Counting breaks that lasted mo's I've been painting just over a yr. Some series pieces I like doing but at the same time get kinda bored with.
Maybe you can answer some questions for me TSA. When you start a series of paintings like this (I think you said you'd do about 12) does it usually just gradually evolve into another series the way this latest piece of yours seems to be pushing, or do you finish up a coherent series and start on a really different idea? I imagine this is different from painter to painter.

How long have you been painting?

And finally if you have a bunch of other past paintings, where can we see pix of them, don't be holdin' out on us, Tiki or no teaky.

PS
I used tah collect comix too, what a bunch uh creating geekies.

Peace and Aloha
ST

Hey TSA,

Love the latest sketch, that’s going to be one great painting. Will you be using the same technique as you did for your last painting?
