Whilst waiting for the floods to claim Bangkok, I knocked up a painting of my first tiki mug "Captain Hold Fast".

AT&T,
Just spent some time working thought this entire thread and, what can I say, fantastic creations!

Quite inspiring, looking forward to seeing more...

Quick question: for your paintings, are you first working them digitally and then brush painting them?

Coolio...

Peace,
Jason

I should hopefully have new pictures up this week as I got a backlog of my pictures photographed on Monday.

Until a few years ago all my work was drawn by hand then finished on a computer. Since I started painting again, I've created some elements on computer and then transferred them to canvas using the grid technique and then painted them by hand.

Mostly these days my art is a straight from my brain into canvas via a pencil sketch and a paint brush.

You can see how I created some of these pieces in the Creating Tiki thread..

The Ima Sumac is more of an experimental sketch. I based it on a newspaper picture that accompanied her obituary. What I intend to do someday is do a much larger piece, with Roy Lichtenstein style halftone with gold leaf, plastic jewels,glitter paint on black velvet base. A sort of high camp exotica pop art icon.

The photo-shoot on my backlog of pictures didn't come out as well as I liked. I guess I'll have to find a repro shop with a scanner big enough to copy them directly.

The Cannibal Cocktail Hei Tiki is great. It's a nice twist on a classic motif. I'd have said fun, but I try never to put the word fun too terribly close to the word cannibal.

If you can't use fun and cannibal together what about "Happy"...



The Kai Kanak aka The Happy Cannibal aka The Cookie Monster
