TO MY ARTIST FRIENDS: I'm sorry I haven't been able to post much on your threads recently, but tragedy has struck and I'm having trouble keeping up. I promise to do better as soon as I can. Thanks, buds.



Meheadhunter - I'm glad you thought the were spooky. I heard a woman at last week's Festiki event tell her boyfriend that she was too creeped out to go near it!

Thor - DAMN, I guess you kinda liked it! I hope that in the near future THE SHOW IS A GO!!

Tiki Shark - I don't know how Tiki art could be actual Self Expression or a window into my soul, but it is... that must be the parallel universe.

Virani - mucho mahalos. I hope you're still enjoying that Nuku Hiva piece. I heard a rumor about an album of yours at Festiki... I've gotta find out more about that. Very interesting.

Watango - I'm glad you liked it - wait till you see what I did to the design in my next commision!

Hope all is well Robb.

Got to see this one in person at Festiki in Ohio.
It is a great piece Robb!
As were the other paintings you had there.
Need to get one of your paintings for our
house as well.
Great Job!!!

Tikiskip - Your lamp is terrific in my gazebo (see pics below).

Swamp Fire - More shrunken heads on the way.

BigToe - Thanks for calling it magenta, not pink!



Here is the wonderful lamp I bought from Tikiskip last week:

Nice work on the village Robb! We need to get together
for a brainstorming session and sketch out some ideas
for the bar & lanes. I'll mix up a batch of Crazyassbrainfish
to get the ideas flowing.

Here's a new commission from Bill Winger, owner of DaddyKatz, Dayton's only Tiki/hotrod/midcentury store.

This one has an epic scale, bigger than anything I've done. It is 2x3 feet, but the image is bigger than that!







The previous shrunken head painting was the first step to doing this one, which was the plan from the beginning.






I've got a specific source for the red light this time.






The village is also familiar and comfortable to do. The hint of a huts in the distance will soon be erased.




The next step will show main subject for this painting, which is something I'd never even thought about doing on velvet before.

Robb, hope all is well with you and yours. You are painting, I hope that's a good sign

This latest piece looks like it will be, well...EPIC!!! But why limit yourself to 2x3? As I remember, velvet comes 54 inches wide and yards & yards long - VELVET MURAL!!! VELVET MURAL!!! VELVET MURAL!!!

Mike - I have long-range plans in the mural direction!

4WDtiki - see below...









Here's the very beginning. Handheld "making of" digi-pics taken in flourescent light don't look so hot.






It's this hotrod, which I showed in this pic from the progress shots of the shrunken head painting.







It's taking form. At this stage I have no idea how I'm going to do the headlights.

That car looks awesome so far Robb.

Maybe I can commission you to paint my sweet 2005 Ford Focus hatchback in the same style

Hey Robb-

I'm digging the shrunken heads and the rod paintings! "Two great subjects, that go great together..." Can't wait to see these when they are done!
