Aloha TC,
Hewey, Suburbanpagan, Thanks so much! I'm inching along, sneaking in painting time after work. Here's what I did last night...

Can you see it?

I'm working on making the tiki look like it's made out of wood this time.

Hey, today's date is 07 07 07! That makes it... Ah... international "We should be in Vegas playing slots day!"

Aloha from the smoking seething erupting volcanic island~

This is looking quite fabulous! It's excruciating to have to wait for the updates, but I'm kinda enjoying the tease.

Mmmmm, close-up! Not quite as good as scoping the real thing but it sure helps.
I really hope you're planning to get some TikiShark mugs made before too long. Fish-chin and the Creature would make a nice starting set!

Jentiki~What I mean is that I wanna this one to look more like wood than the previous ones. It's actually strange what Tiki/palm tree wood grain looks like. So here's my best excruciatingly slow shot at it...
Hewey~I insanely thank you.
Dirk Yates~I seriously thank you!
Frojo~Welcome to the tikinatious artizmic journey my friend! I'm honored you place is such talented company, cause I look to Thor and Shag for inspiration Too! Thor's lighting is amazing, and Shag's color choices are masterful!
Paipo~Mugs! Yes, I have thought about them. I'm weighing out the financial possibilities. I'll let you know well in advance if things get in the works. Thanks!

Here's another close up of some woodie work.
We got guests in! So the ol art studio has become a guest room for a few days. tomorrow we take the trek to show off the volcano!
All hail Pele!
Mahaloo from the volcano~
Brad~

Brad,

I love work that constantly reveals more upon further viewings! I just noticed the Cthulu mythology-like seastar with the eye in its center!! Too cool.

Take care,

I.

Master Shark Man,

It blows me away that your working all this detail out on a 30 x 24 inch canvas....I could never have the patience for this.

Bravo!

Shark,

You are by far one of the sickest painters around! (yes, that is a compliment)

I'm always inspired by your "lighting FX" and truly hope to capture the kind of detail in my own work.
Can't wait to see the finished piece. Kudos Bro!

Aloha TC!
Ivanchan~You totally plugged into the Cthulu aspect. I have a strange and strong notion that connects tropical oceania with Cthulu mythos, and it's sneaking more and more into my work.
Babblu~Really? Is that detailed for 30 x 24? It is a bit busy. At first it seemed like such a huge canvas, I had to put more into it to fill it up with something interesting.
otikiniko~Thanks for the sick complement.
Frostiki~ Thanks, now to more colors layers on the other side of the tiki...

Mahalo from the volcano...
