And here it is:






"Tiki Vignette 3" - 36x18" - black velvet on stretcher frame.



This one is broodier than most I've done lately, I wouldn't put it on a white wall without a spotlight, but if I made it brighter, it would ruin the delicate mood. It's really kinda ominous. I hope y'all likes it.

mp - Weird! My wife said the same thing, she said it looked like the retro graphics from the title sequence of "The Venture Brothers"... which is one BADASS show! Thanks Little Lost Tiki for telling me about it.

Wicked cool! The back one reminds me of an alien from some movie but I can't pinpoint which one.

Definitely got the vintage vibe going on. Pulp paperback cover, drink menu, model kit box art - it would work for anything. Diggin those colours you chose Robb!

OH YEAH BABY! Like the old Aurora Monster models! I would be extremely pleased to have TIKI model kits! What a fantastic idea! I think you have touched close to a philosophic reason that I engage in creating and enjoying Tiki Art!

This new painting is speaking to me on a deep emotional level, whispering to my inner child who is still busy putting together the Aurora model kit of the Black Knight. Remember those? The Black Knight, the Blue Knight, the Red Knight... perhaps that is what this modern tiki pop art is about: Completing the collcetion of our inner children. The Black Tiki, The Blue Tiki , The Green Tiki...

Beautiful work.
