Love the Solomon Islands stuff. Nice segue from Solomon Islands to Shrunken Heads; a picture with both!



"Tantalus" - now that's funny stuff Maynard! Just out of reach

I just love bamboo frames in general, and the birds in particular.
Great style...T4S!

You have incredible island style. I love it. I love all of it, but really enjoy the simple stuff (not that it's simple), like the sketchbook pages and the watercolors! Nice work!

HELLO!
POPPING IN BRIEFLY AND THEN...POOF!
I'll be gone for a week or two..
Doing lotsa commissions and MAJOR Studio Renovation...
If'n you'd like to see some of that....
theeeeen go HERE!
http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/photo.php?pid=1135244&id=1451540979&fbid=1453550746043

Mike...
Yes! Solomon Islands to Shrunken Heads...
It's been really fun categorizing and posting all these different aspects of Tiki!
"Tantalus"...a lil bit of classic mythological humor with a Tropical Twist!
Thanks for the pop-in!
Hope you can pop in the studio soooon!

amybean-Thank you my dear..
Rumor has it
hewey's next swap will have a bird's theme...
YAY!!!!

Jason-shush!
Get back to that canvas,velvet-jedi!

MeHeadhunter-
scroll down....a lil surprise for YOU!

talo ka-thanks man! I like to throw a gear in the narrative sometimes....
approach it a bit deeper than just a shrunken head
or a headhunter's village...Did that with Cannibals for awhile
(Lonely Cannibal/Haunted by Past meals/Remorseful Cannibal/Cannibal Family)
Took a look behind the psychology of the cannibal,y'know?

Greg=Soon,my friend!
and the studio should be pretty done by then!
Bring some booze and ....stuff!

Thank you for always being such a positive encouraging voice in the community....

pennjones-Thanks pj!I have another raw sketchbook entry below for a recent commission
I like to share them because it's a fun way to break down the artist/audience barrier
to show them how sometimes a raw scrawl can develop and evolve..
But,i think you'll agree, sometimes just spilling it out all at once and fast
captures something that a painted version cannot capture without effort....


I'm currently working on a SECRET PROJECT that already has 10 pages of raw sketches invested into it...
will share those after the UNVEILING...
OOOH! How fun! SUSPENSEEEEEEEE!

Anyways, A big smile and thank you to all that happen to visit and get some eyefuls!

Anyways,this is kinda unprecedented,but I'm gonna post a finished commission RIGHT HERE!
Even before the Actual Owner-to-be has seen it....
We'll call him Mr. "M" to be all mysterious....

Anyways, Mr. "M" acquired this fine piece a while back...
"Drummer Possessed"
tissue paper stain,ink, and colored pencil on watercolor paper
private collection


He recently put put out a supervillian network search
and one of my agents arranged for a liason
under a bridge...

Anyways, Mr. "M" is a jack-of-all-trades
and is currently a high-level assassin for numerous countries...
Anyways, Mr. "M" is famous in his circle for owning a modified Didgeridoo of Doom
which he has used in countless successful missions...
Anyways, my assignment was to create another tribesman from the same village
playing this Didgeridoo...
This weapon has a distinct personalized pinstriping on it...
part of the mission was to capture this embellishment on said native's instrument....

Anyways, in the ever-consistent style of breaking norms and taboos and conventions and supervillian guild rules
may i present for the first time publicly..

"Night Song"
tissue paper stain,ink, and colored pencil on watercolor paper
private collection


and here's a close-up of the pinstriping...



And here you go,pennjones... an initial sketchbook study...


Well, I'm beat from a loooong day of getting yet another room of the studio all spiffy!
Been thinking of an open studio sometime next year,,,,,,,and an artjam too!
soon,my pretties!

Anyways! Have a great evening!

Digeridoo? I thought for sure he was from the Melanesian island of New Caledonia and that was a bagpipe chanter brought over from old Caledonia

2 good lookin' musicians Ken, think you can sign them on with Tikiyaki?

AWWWWESOME!!!
fun to see all that amazing artwork.

but what up with the "private collections".
does that mean they're owned by folks in the military? maybe stationed on the island of Guadeloupe?
or does it mean that they keep the collections in their private parts?
inquiring minds what to know!
