Duddy, foamy, Sneaky: thanks guys, I'm thrilled you like 'em. I forgot to mention that they are all 8x10. I sold one last night at the Daddy Katz Xmas party to the wonderful Michelle and Eric!

I describe this new shop in Gen Tiki if anybody wants another reason to believe Tiki may have a healthy future.

Sneaktiki, thanks for the concern. I'm feeling much better now, just a little exhausted.

Michelle was just struck by it ... it's an incredible piece Robb, not to mention our first piece of original artwork. I'm looking forward to chatting again soon.

Hey Robb,

I did a few pastelles of Lei-Ladies a couple years back.
Here is a detail of one:

I'm stoked you are feeling better!

Mucho thanks everyone. I'm glad people like my little sketches.

jfrancis - they're all pastel on 8x10 black paper, nothin' else.

sneakytiki - nice pastel, you definitely captured a good feminine quality. You should do more of 'em.

Looks like you grabbed another medium and nailed it! My fave,as you know,is the bottom one-in the dark ravine....silent and still....
aaaaaah!
I'm with Babs...i can hear the bugs and smell the vegetation too!
Great job! Your playfulness and looseness are giving birth to some great drawings! Robb's BACK!

I'm feelin' the pastel vibe and have decided to FREAK!

I'm going to work on 4-5 11x14" pastels at the same time and post progress shots. I'm shooting for fun and spontaneity and wicked ATMOSPHERE. It's gonna get chaotic here... Hell Yeah.

These are all 11x14 pastel on black paper. Hope you like 'em.







As usual, I don't have the time to make pretty thumbnails, just enough to get rollin'. I've wanted to do a canoe dealing with a wicked storm for awhile.





I think one of the sexiest looks ever for women is the lollipop afro-wearing toughgirl: smart, capable, independent, and TOO DAMN FINE! If anybody out there thinks this awesome style is RACIST or SEXEST: BITE ME HARD! It isn't, and I miss it terribly.





The itsy-bitsy sketch of two cycadish palms second from bottom right is my starting point. Will it have a Tiki? Hell if I know, or care. This pic kinda gives away that I've already gotten started.





I start rough with pastels and clean it up later. FUN first, refinement later.

Looking good Robb! There is a lot of energy and movement in this one. What with all the diagonals and the stormy seas it is sure to be a feast for the eyes.
