Thanks for posting the sketches, I love to see the process.
Your water falls are so ghostly and moody. Beautiful. I'm inspired.

Thanks Brad, Sam, Virani and Grog. I started getting involved in TC to be part of a community. In my area, there is no one besides my wife into Tiki... I haven't even heard of another single person. It's good not to be working in a vacuum any more.

This is the sketch for Virani's painting:



Believe it or not, this sketch is guite large. I also elevated the sketch so that I had to look up at it as I worked. I did this things I'd get a sense of scale as I'm designing the image.

Stay out of those vaccuums, Robb, to confining, little light, and the dust is terrible for velvets.
But, you could probably get great results non-the-less.

Grog, I can't tell you what an honor it is to have my paintings defiled in Photoshop by you!

Msteeln, the worst part is that space suits cost $9,000,000 the last I checked. That'll cut a chunk out of my 401K.



This is the beginning of Virani's painting:





Unfortunately, I can't post again until the Hukilau is over - I can't wait to meet some of you hooligans!!!!!

Keep an eye out for this guy:

Everybody's gonna do this, so I'll keep it REALLY short.

I'd like to thank the following for a terrific Hukilau 2008:



Tiki Kiliki for discovering me hocking my paintings on the internet, believing in me enough to invite me to the show, and for helping me survive the resulting nervous breakdown while fending off one of her own. She is spectacularly beautiful in every way a person can be... and also for introducing my wife and I to these guys:



Russell (left) and Michael (Dr. Scopitone) - these two characters saved our entire trip - repeatedly - with their friendship, support, personalities, and patience. Having to leave them honestly feels like a disaster.



Harold Golen for hosting the Fine Art Tiki show, for giving selflessly of his time when I desperately needed professional advice, and for having a gentle, quiet nature that I found disarming.



Also the many other thugs, mugs, oddballs, beauties, and cool people we encountered.

This is the "The Forgotten Valley of Nuku Hiva" finished:



Some closeups:









I took the second edition (of four) of this painting to the Hukilau. At the show we had a shortage of lights for the paintings. If you didn't see this painting while it was well lit, this is what it looked like while it was.

The Hukilau edition was purchased by a very nice TCer. I can't reveal her name without permission, but was thrilled that she bought it in the first few minutes of the show.

The textures you create on velvet are so subtle yet they carry a ton of visual weight. Nice er actually beautiful/ethereal work... AGAIN!
