page 15

"the Cannibal's Collection"
pen an ink on paper with a hand-embellished frame






You know WHAT!?!?!?
This is really time-consuming and EXHAUSTING!
So here's a what I'm gonna do....
Every few days i will grab a bunch of work from
the voluminous files of Tiki Art documented on my HD
and post them...
willy-nilly and all that!
Then i will check them off my list
until they are ALL posted!


Because going back to the Other Crafts post
noting all the pieces for that page
then hunting my art files for better copies
is a terrific waste of time
especially for a man with
painting on his mind....
So it's TIKI ART ROULETTE!
Who knows what the next post will bring?
next time may be sketches/hand-embellished mugs/painted monkeypods/Cannibals/shrunken heads/surfboards
whatever strikes my fancy
til they're all up to Inspire and Amaze you!

so for today.....
I will be sharing WOODBURNS!
About a year or so ago...
a very good friend of mine sent me a professional Colwood WoodBurning set
so i wouldn't burn down the studio with my 99 cent store kit
here are some of the results.....


"Cannibal Drummer"
woodburn and ink on wood

"Happy Drummer"

Wow Kinny Wow, What can be said more than that has already been said. Your imagination, absolute mastering of your medium and obvious focus on your art is inspiring, and quite humbling to myself. There is so much in that head of yours, its exciting to see the next new piece as it develops. Looking forward to the day I can put one on my wall for my friends to enjoy and admire. Keep up the amazing work.

Great compilation of your work LLT. Diving into this thread is like
going into a candy store after a year-long diet. Well, it's not exactly
like that, I'm sure Grog could say it better, but it's all pretty cool.

I enjoyed your latest posts! What was it like "painting" with the wood burner? I played around with one but I didn't know what to "draw" so I put it away! Obviously not my preferred medium!

Woodburning is great FUN! A dear friend sent me a Colwood Wood Burner with a few different tips
iou can adjust the heat level and get it so hot it melts the wood like butter! So basically,it burns the wood as fast as you normally sketch or draw!
Just don't do it for too long...smellin all that burning wood for over 2-3 hours can give you a headache! and it's pretty simple....
just sketch the design on wood lightly then go over those lines with the woodburner...TADA!
I'll do a step-by-step of some woodburning in my Other Crafts thread!

Clarita
Gracias mi Hermana de Arte! Did i say that right?
It's soooo fantastic to have so many art brothers and sisters to create and learn and share with!
YAYs!

Thank you both for leaving some thoughts and all you others who just like to visit!

"LLT #1 Mug"
private collection


"Babalu/LLT Mug collaboration"


it took a while,but i discovered that embellishing existing objects/mugs was my strength
whereas sculpting them myselves ends up looking like a Monkey with claw hands created it...
for example...Here's a Huge Platter that Babalu sculpted in it's entirety...
He left the middle open for a lil sumthin sumthin....
See what i mean? Collabs are the BEST!

"Babalu/LLT Platter Collaboration"
