I understand as well....I teach art during the day to provide for my family. Oh how I wish I could make a living off the art I wanna make. I am not a strictly tiki artist...and never want to be labeled into one type art either.

Press on guys!!!

Kooche, that is strange to say that you most likely will not do something again. I was shocked when famed bike builder Jesse James said no more built choppers for him. Although, Its a good thing, you leaving and me try to come in, on a small seperate plain. Its the circle of life.

But if you do other things, and people know this, they will respone. If people know you are stopping, then they will seek out the last remaining tiki and you will probably have a better chance reaching a bigger following, with other subjects, making the previous work more wanted. Its working already on me. I love your work, you are probably the most creative painter.

that above picture though doesn't have a tiki in it. Love that little logo guy. Picasso had his blue period.

Kooche I think that I asked you before but is there a chance to get the work that is on your website. The tiki ones of course.

hey kooche (and flounder too) I think humu summed it up nicely by simply saying its not the tiki - it's the art and the two of you HAVE IT! You could paint an owl and it would be AWESOME!

Kooche - your cartoony style is amazing, and I've drooled over every piece that you've put on this board - tiki or not and I REALLY look forward to seeing what you have in store for your future artistic endeavors - totally wild I would guess!!!!

i still have one really big fat tiki piece to do...the cover of tiki magazine...and i am in the middle of designing shirts for the Tiki Ti which will i think be for sale at the bar ... why else would they ask me to design one for them...

so far as my next show is concerned ... it's a two man show on july 16th...the title is "Heaven and HELL!" so there it is...i am in the midst of doing a ton of research on the old master's style of painting...though i can see it will take me some time to finesse i can also appreciate how much more of a grip i have on oil today than i had a year ago...in a few years i'll be duck in water!

thanks again for all the encouragement everyone!

It may be taps for the tapa but you have to stick around here because the tiki is in your blood and you won't stop listening to the music.

Reminds me I need to mail something to you.

Wow kooche, your stuff is Miles above the rest. The more that I look at your body of work, the more that I'm impressed.

Let me congratulate you on being in JUXTAPOZ.
I like the "Eternal Reunion" picture and the one with the six arms. If I had more money at the time I would get one.
When are the prints due?? I love how you got all those characters going on and patterns. I am inspired to paint like that.
One question, I see that you have repeat characters which is great. Where does the idea for the tiki necklace come from? A real object? And if you want to do a super quick ink drawing of like a monster's hand and the necklace for me I'll take one.
