Aloha Kiddles!
Still reelin a bit from yesterday at the
Douglas P. Horne 50th Annual Memorial
Streak like A Monkey thru the Back Yard Marathon...
Zoinks!
Special Thanks to Dr.Z and his Hangover Packets!

Wendy,
Yes my dear
i do sleep

Dreams may not provide specific subject matter all the time
but just the dream state itself
stirs something inside...
I'm eager to see how the audience reacts to the art later on this year....
Thank you for the visits!

Your stained glass work and that surprise studio visit
really sparked some ideas for some collaborative magic!

ALOHA Kids!
Time for some PNG-inspired goodies!

so talo.... you wait no longer!

Jentiki-yay! it's been a while since I've seen a lot of these fellows!
They seem to fly off to new homes almost as fast as they are created!
"the Greeting" is still one of my faves! Glad it brings you smiles a lot!

tyger jymmy-right arm...


Now it's time for PNG part One...
it's part One because there is a LOT!
this presentation below
had me stopping at the file "Arrival Studies"
in the A's!
(of course ,there was a PNG monkeypod and PNG sketchbook folders up top)

Anyways...Here they are...
First the Monkeypods!
These had long titles that i never committed to memory
usually naming the inspiration for it and locale...
So if you own one-you know the inspiration
everyone else...just enjoy what you can.
Some of these MAY still be at the Freaky Boutiki
or at Tiki Lee's Vegas room
awaiting a loving owner
just not sure...
there are so many!























and now for some drawings...

"Agiba Skullrack"
ink and tissue paper stain on watercolor paper


and some random sketchbook entries..
















"the Apparition"
gouache on wood
private collection


"the Arrival"
acrylic and paintpen on canvas
private collection


Here's the original study
"the Arrival"
ink and sharpie and bleachpen on watercolor paper


Seeing as these Tropical Visitors
used a hi-tech form of transportation
I figgered the natives would begin to carve and incorporate their vehicles into their own art.....

Here's the many studies for this piece...




































and remember fellow artists...
doing your research and doing studies
isn't just for kids anymore!


Hope y'alls enjoy these as much as i enjoyed cookin em up!
Thank you,native genius Papua New Guinea peoples!

I love all the sketches and studies. Won-der-ful! One might even get the impression you're a real artist!

Thank you Sven...
Your visits and encouragement are always welcome!
Some days i feel like a real artist
other days..... a charlatan a hack an eyesore
i imagine everyone has those days
in their own ways....

But some days
after finishing an actual good piece
one does begin to feel like an artist of sorts!

Glad you like all the sketches and studies....
There so much visual imagery
that is easily embedded
by merely doing a study of it....


New pieces
"the Lonely Head"
acrylic and cel vinyl on masonite
private collection


and this one for the Tiki magazine
Beyond the Reef exhibition at the Freaky Boutiki
and held over during Tiki Oasis this year!

A little bit of Comic-Tragedy Maori monkey Business
for your eyeballs....

"the Doomed Crew"
acrylic and cel vinyl on woodburned crab bowl from Squid



That is all
Goodnight TC!
