Sam,

I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed the comic panels on yr website. Very funny stuff. I'd encourage everyone to have a look if you haven't already. And of course, all the art is very cool.

You should think about making tiki art prints of the works that could hang in anyones tiki bar...like not name specific to the space itself. Maybe make some new ones for purchase too.
Example: Try our *blank* (Mai Tai?) and have a pic of the drink and one of yr awesome stylized tikis. I know I'd want one...

Thanks for the kind words, Slacks. I just now read your message, returning from my evacuation from Hurricane Dennis. Thank God, I didn't so much as have a stray twig on my lawn!

That's a great idea for the prints. Most of these names on my paintings, however, are just made up by me - many don't really even exist even as someone's home bar. I can easily change any text in my "Tiki Signs" to say anything since they are digital renderings. The paintings would be much more difficult though.

I like your style. There is this other guy that has a simular style as you. His stuff just dosn't grab me like yours. And they make musicals and Disney throws tons of money at this guy. I don't get it.

Your stuff rocks Sam. Tight designs.

So whens the book due out?

Thanks for such a nice compliment, AlienTiki. There's no tentative date yet set for the coffee table book. I have some soliciting to do yet!

This is a painting of a vintage late '50's gearshift knob of mine. Since I like it, I had to paint it. It's 12x18 enamel and bronze powder on masonite.

Sam, I Love the VooDoo Head Gearshift Knob, but I REALLY Love the Grampa Munster. He has been my Favorite Grandpa of all time. Loving your work.

Sam- Love your artwork all the way down to your super-hip signature! Grandpa's Speed Shop really shows detail and lighting unlike alot of your other pieces- a real leap in advancement seen in this piece from here.

Great stuff!

A nice homage to ol man Munster. You can see the twinkle his eye and hear his crazy laugh. The Munster song definately is in my top ten for theme songs from a TV show. I always thought Grandpa had one of the badest rooms, a trap door into a labratory..How cool is that!Did they ever show a garage in the Munsters? That is a really cool piece Sam, you really got the Munster style. The shifter knob would of worked well in one of Grandpa's killer rides.

Blap-blap-blap-blap-blap-RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

Thanks for the great feedback, hewey, Ben, Skully and Chongo. I did enjoy painting grandpa. I hadn't done that style in quite some time.

I remember Grandpa Munster as trying to run for Mayor of NYC in the 90s. He had a Saturday afternoon radio show and everything. Nice one Sam, you nailed him.
