The 'Incredible Mr. Limpet' is a treasured nugget of my childhood too!

Thanks Ray for creating such a "Mango" hybid of two diverse cultures..a collision of admiration located in a parallel universe of your mind..passive & aggressive..you could have painted a Maori Barney Fife and achieved the same self-deprecating emotional quality.


Of course now that you're merrily strolling down this path - how much longer before 'The Ghost and Mr. Chicken' or 'The Reluctant Astronaut' or 'The Shakiest Gun In The West' or a wacked-out psychedelic Ralph Furley release themselves from the mighty Mango paint-brush?

(Spell Check just erased half my message -Damn computers!)

TikiG, interesting that you should mention the passive/aggressive theme here, as that was exactly what I was going for. The only reason I picked Henry Limpet over Barney Fife was that Limpet also has an element of escapism and water that I enjoy so much. It's been awhile since I've seen the movie, but I am pretty sure that Henry really wishes he could get turned into a fish to escape his life. The animated Fishy-Limpet turns into a reluctant WWII hero at the end, and finds the love of his life... awe. (cue the sappy end song)

So yea, the warrior moko on such a meek character, I thought was very fun. No plans to turn this into a "series".

Ok, so let me stick my foot in my mouth... I wasn't planning on doing a "series", but I really enjoy the juxtaposition of frailty or cowardliness and Maori Moko. I racked my brain trying to think of a 60's TV actor that wasn't too iconic, yet would still be recognizable. I decided on Johnathan Harris' most well known character, Doctor Zachary Smith from Lost in Space. For those that remember the very first episodes, Dr. Smith was a cruel and ruthless saboteur/spy, but somewhere along the way he turned into a whining and complaining character. Such a shame. So here's #2, Lost in Moko.


Another small painting, 9x12, acrylic on canvas. The shirt looks black in this scan, but is actually a dark green with black folds.


Detail of Moko on face. I wish I had taken a picture before the application of the Moko, as it's really hard to see Dr. Smith in there.

I've also been asked why the Moko is blue and not black. From what I have read, the Moko could vary from a black to indigo shade, depending on time period and technique/materials used. For me is was just a personal preference to go with the indigo.

TMango:

Thumbs Up for Moko No.2 I always loved to hate the Dr. you love to hate - Zachary Smith. Whiny? Yeah!

See! I know you have a series here, Ray - I knew it!

I trust you have more ideas rolling around your head...should you run out of ideas...I'm here.

TikiG, you called me out on the series for sure. I still have one more I need to get out of my system, but it'll have to wait.

So I haven't done much on the painting front lately. I did manage to work up this idea for another silk screened t-shirt. I'll probably have these at Hukilau this year. I sketched this last night laying in bed, and then cleaned it up in PhotoShop today.



Thanks for looking as always.

Mango, I missed this! Another study in contrasts, this time it's modern technology vs ancient technology. Very cool.

I love this! Why? well it inspired an immediate concept for an amusement park ride!! Get a patent on this right away, TMango!!

Like MDM said: "another study in contrasts"...that says it all when it comes to describe your graphic art over the past year or so. We're so lucky as a group to have you a member, Ray, and I'm proud to say my friend is doing the "study in contrasts" concept regularly. It fits your personality in relation to Poly-Pop art like a glove.

OK! I hope it doesn't take another three months for you to post something new on THIS thread

MadDogMike, thanks for the compliments. I always have the mantra of juxtaposition running through my head.

Kon-Hembsy, glad you like the moai. That image has been rolling around in my skull for a while, I was glad it finally got out.

TikiG, you're the master of the Dark Ride concepts, if that's the direction your mind's eye was heading. I'll try to get more active over here.

LLT, it was great gabbing on the phone with you guys at the Chop over the weekend. I'd build it if I could, my folks rid me of my Erector set.

The Mecha-Moai is very cool. I like seeing something so non-traditional!

I've been away from the Tiki Tribe for far too long! I'm glad I was able to find my way back to the paints. I'm trying to do a few more paintings this year, as I hardly did anything last year. This was a small painting, just to get my feet wet again and remember how to hold a brush. I call this one Tiki Flight, and it mixes my interests of sci-fi and tiki. Maybe some of you can ID the tiki?


Acrylics on canvas board, 9x12.

Thanks for looking!
