ALOHA TC!
Jentiki~Yeah, it's purple/pink/red! Glad you are digging it!
Ravenne~Mahaloz - and I hope you do make it to San Diego in one piece! If ya do, we can clink Mai Tais!

Whole shebang~

Da' hut so far...

Sketch of the open door way...

A closer look in that door way...

And here's a sketch for the "floating Mug". I changed it many times. I was stuck on it for a while. I even had ear rings in it, and then I saw the new mug coming out of Tiki Farm that has ear rings - so I discarded that idea. Now he has a lip ring. I guess, if this is going to be made as a real mug (and Holden and I have talked about it, so it could happen) it can actually have a ring in it's lip? Right? Holden? Squidy?

14 days left to finish!!!

Mahaloz from the tropical breeze ruffled Tiki Shark Offices on da Big Island. (Hey, I had a nightmare last night about lava pouring down the volcano towards Kona! I think it's because there has been a lot of news about the new eruption and how great it's flowing right now. I hope it's not a premonition! Or at least Pele holds off on gushing till I get this painting done!)

You'll finish this with time to bust out 1 more small one!
Looking great! The background cliffs are perfect with a little bit of mistiness in them! And thanks for sharing your studies/sketches! I bet you're having a blast with all the lighting challenges in this one!!!
Imagine ...we'll be sippin Mai-Tais and catching up at the Bali-Hai in less than a month!

This creature has caught my attention! There is heavy forces at work in this pic. things we don't know about... things we shouldn't know about. I will be keeping an eye or two on this corner of creativity. Completely dig the wave with the shark silhouette and the sea foam patterns. You nailed it bro.

Grog, you took what I was going to say. First you claim the painting, now your saying what I want to say. When will this injustice stop.

Brad, I can't wait to see what you do with that Palm tree, very surreal and psychedelic. More please.

I agree with Chongolio! This side of the painting definitely has somethin' goin' on!

I love the interior of the Lounge, it turned out nicely so far!

I can't wait till you post more!

Hay TSA, Remember Me? It's art work from the past come back to haunt you!!! Maxie wanted me to give yous a message. "Goose it up Luger. You only got 14 days left."
No presure though, we'll be standing by and waiten... By the way, Do you remember that soul sucking interdimensional being you released into my office years ago? Well, it made one of the best damn chauffeurs I ever had. Had to work on his personal hygene a bit... but damn good.

I'll be seeing you!

TSA, this is so beautiful! I feel so depressed at my lack of talent and inspired by your work at the same time when I view your work! Beautiful!!

Aloha TC!
Blowfish~Thanks! I'm glad you're diggin the mug. I really went back and forth on it. I think it's what I want now. I think. Stay tuned for a more involved sketch.
LLT~YEAH, can't wait to be sippin Mai Tais at the Bali-Hai with my tiki art buddy! There has been lots of strange lighting challenges. Which are fun, when you can resolve them and make 'em look appealing on the canvas.
Chongolio~Is the Brain freaking you out? Well, if you remember way back to the time I had a cold, and I took too much cold medicene, and I sketched... THATS where this evil brain / bartender idea came from. So, yeah a freaky thing from a freaky (medicine induced) sketch! I wasn't sure if it was too freaky to put into the painting. Then I thought, What am I thinking? It's Tiki Art! Any thing goes! I thought you'd dig the shark in the wave, as your a surfer and all!
Hewey~Mahalo! It's getting there! (But I did have a nightmare last night that I didn't get it finihed in time for the show at the Bali-Hai!)
Grog~I worked very hard on that grass!
Frostiki~Yeah, that tree is weird! I was gonna do a realistic tree, and then I kinda thought, well the painting has a evil brain in it, how realistic do I have to worry about being?
Ravenne~Thanks, glad u like the lounge!
Work World Woman~!!!!!!!! Hey Aloha! Oh yeah, sorry about that whole inter-dimensional demon accident. Glad it all worked out! Hope to see you at the Bali-Hai, or at least in LA when I'm passing through!
SneakyTiki~I'm very sorry if your depressed, but I'm honored that you are inspired! I think getting inspired by other artist's here on Tiki Central is what drove me on to make Tiki art.

Here's the Whole thang...

Here's a (almost finished) study / sketch of the bartender.

Here's the Bartender so far.

"What's the Bartender's name?"
"Oh, Abby someone."
"Abby someone? Abby who?"
"Abby Normal."

Hey kids, If you'd like to learn more about evil brains in jars, go to
http://feeds.feedburner.com/horror Scroll down to the pod cast titled: "Donovans Brain by Suspense", and Orsen Wells will explain it all to you. (Just remember not to tap on the glass. They don't like that!)

Big Mahalo from the Big Island!

TSA, So whose brain is it ?
Some around here think I've lost mine.
Could that be it ?
Sure, Sure, Sure
Will
