Aloha,

After seeing all the great inspiring art in person for the
Tiki Magazine release party at Damon's on Nov. 21, I want to join in!
So here is the first from me. More to come...
Mahalo!

More please!

The girl is wonderful which is the hardest part to nail down. The tiki looks to be modeled from a $ store tiki.

Thanks Teakey!

I actually used a photo I took recently of a big tiki
outside of that general store in Hana, Maui for reference.

LOL! I knew it! I dig your work and have a great display of Fluff's tropical women's accessories, luggage tags and greeting cards at Freaky Boutiki in Mission Beach.

Very popular with wahine of all ages.

So what's the scoop? Is there a Claudette? Are there several artists? Won't you please share some of your process. How about a tour of your rough sketchbook??? Pretty please?! - Hodaddy

Rock on! Thanks for carrying our fluff stuff! Glad to hear it's popular. I've seen your ads in Tiki Magazine. Are you the owner of the store? We will definitely stop in for a visit and some shopping on our next road trip to San Diego!

So Here's the scoop: Yes, there is a Claudette. She is a super talented
renaissance woman (artist,musician,dancer,etc...) and an exotic French
Tahitian South American Syrian beauty to boot! Also, the love of my life! Fluff is our company and we are the only artists, she being the big cheese, and me, her left hand man. Claudette started Fluff and then I joined in a little while later. We kinda work well together, 5 years later 24/7 and we haven't killed each other yet!

O.K. I think I can dig up some process rough sketches and stuff.
Might take awhile to scan in. Or maybe start from now going forward.
I can promise you they won't be pretty!

Mahalo!

Jason

Aloha!
It's been a little longer than I wanted in posting something
new. I recently purchased some velvet downtown, but alas
with the holidays.....anyway, I did manage to make a study of
what I might be painting in my first exploration into the dark side.
Wish me luck!
Mahalo!
