I think, if given the challenge...a Tikified version of Brueghel's Triumph of Death would be Uber-bitchenlicious! But the garden of earthly delights....a foldout altarpiece fer sure! Like the missionaries would bring this jacked-up crazy painting to the natives to convert them!

This weekend Tiki A. Moaikingbird & I were in Calgary and paid Slacks a visit at the city-run arts centre where he works. We got a tour of the facilities...






...and as an unexpected bonus got to see The Birth of Pele hanging in a staff art show.

Just wanted to say, nice paintings. Did you ever do a print of the Tiki's playing poker? Any new carvings to share?

Here's a glimpse at the cover of my cocktail menu:



I was attempting to capture a vintage graphic feel...more pages will follow as I (slowly) get 'em done.
Lemme know what you think.


Hopefully I'll get the basement lounge up and running by April 2009! Fingers Crossed!

Knockout job - real vintage look. Very authentic, if you said it was vintage, Id've believed you.

Thanks for the postitive feedback fellas. Great to hear from a couple of artists who's talents I respect.

Please note, I'm also open to constructive criticism. Initially, there wasn't alot of feedback, so I was beginning to wonder if this just was too far off base for most tiki tastes...

Here is a PNG inspired lamp that I've been working on:





I made the tapa and the masks are made from clay out of a press mold I found.





Question for the lamp-makers around here (Tikiskip? Kahaka?): I want to cover the bottom with a (tapa-like) paper I've already picked out, but if I glue it on, I'll have denied myself access to the bulb, which will eventually need to be changed. I really can't access the bulb from the top. What should I do with the bottom so I can have it covered, but also removable so it can provide access to change the bulb? Hinged door? Clipped in place? I'm hoping there's a simple solution.

Nice work Slacks!! And you made your own tapa? Impressive!

Try velcro for fastening the bottom.
