Thanks for the great advice! I forgot all about the pre-paint clean-up I'll have to do.

Wow!
I do a lil' work and decide to check the post and wow! Really stoked to hear the opinion of Tiki experts! Chongolio! You got some pretty cool and fun stuff! Your colors just make me happy! I love Ocean Man!What a cruiser! That sun got me thinking about this piece I'm currently working on with the Sun and the Happy Hut.Here's a Happy Hut ink/watercolor for you to enjoy! The characters are all tapa-oceanic decorative motif-inspired.They sleep all over the hut by night,decorating him up quite fancy...then thay pop off in the morning and do what they do...BTW that multi-eyed guy is the Seer.He's one of the Pineapple King's advisors and confidantes.

Mr Matt Reese-that name sure sounds familiar! Are you famous or something? If not you must be paying the "man" to microwave your name into my head 'cause I'm certain I've heard it before....I rarely leave work here or at the studio but if I do head down to SD I'll post you a message and we can play show-n-tell! Last time i was in SD I hit the street scene after the Action Sports (years ago) it was all a blur! Way too much beer! Back in the day it was like a gated off Town of the Living Drunks! Miracle I survived....

Tiki beat! Thanks for the kudos and glad you like the board.I'm selling it at my one man show ib Santa Ana in August! Saw some of your carvings-rad!I wish I didn't have such weak lady arms or I'd 'ave a go at carving! Well, enough ramblin' on bosse's dime! Here's the pic!


tikiwahine-when you find a board gimme a heads up and I'll fly up and help you prep it! Actually not,but if you have any??? please be sure towrite!Now hurry up and find that perfect board!

Aw what the hey! Here's one more and then I gotta haul butt from work to my studio in Orange for some art time! This one is called "Night Parade" and it's about as deep as that....A parade....at night! Hence the title....

Have a great weekend y'all!

Thanks for all your comments everyone! I'll definetely post more pieces in the futere so check back every once in a while!
Hey Hewey!
Here's how i got the board all prepped and purty.This info is also directed towards tikiwahine when she tackles her board...Best place to get the boards if you're low-budge is from friends with old ones or check Craigslist and stuff.The only drawback is it might be cracked/missing fins-which isn't too bad to fix/and they're usually covered in wax! They have special glues and resin kits that are little for those kind of repairs.Getting the wax off sucks! All you surfers know that! Scrape off as much as you can-then I used Bestine and a razor blade and paper towels =pour Bestine scrape with razor Wipe onto paper towel.Repeat about a hundred times-(I've only painted 3 boards so if anyone knows a better way to remove wax...)When you finally get it done you'll know.Hold it up and look with your eyes right next to the board and you'll see anymore bumps. I suppose you could gesso it first-but I don't know if it's stretchy enough so I never use it.What I do is use water soluble crayons to sketch out the board(based on your sketchbook study of course-planning is key! but you would know that) Then I use acrylic and get all the colors-shading-lighting-texture down on it-repeat for other side-fins too if you got'em!
After that's dry I cover it with a few coats of matte or satin brush-on varnish-sealer(UV
friendly would help) After that is dry I go and add a bit more detail lighting and shading to give it some umph! Then I seal it again-and back up on it and add even more little details in spots.(I use the "squint test" to check for errors... You back up on a piece squint yer eyes and look at the piece-glaring errors in color and composition will be easier to spot! Dali used to have his wife take his paintings half-done and she would hide them in places so when he would turn a corner or go into the garden ...there would be his piece New to his eyes and he could examine it with an unbiased filter) After those 3 acrylic and seals it's time for the paintpens which I will do 1-color first-seal-next color-seal etc. After all your paintpens are sealed Do 1-more seal then spray over that with a couple coats of UV spray (if your varnish doesn't have that protection) then seal over that with the matte varnishand you got it!Doing all those coats of sealent raises each layer of paint above the other for a nice subtle below the surface interest! Here's a detail!

Here's another ink and pen drawing for my children's book I've been writing on and off for a few years.One day I looked around and I had more than enough pieces for an exhibition but no book yet! Needless to say,I'm having that exhibit this August in Santa Ana and will continue to work on the story in the meantime! This one makes me smile and I hope it makes you do the same!

Thanks surf-n-turf!
Just checked out your site! My favorite is Dr.Smiley's ....This is the kinda stuff I do at my (unfortunate) day job>I'm a creative director in a tee company in Laguna Canyon Laguna Beach! We do everything from lowest common denominator one-liners to way upper-end stuff! We just did a few shirts inspired by those Hawaiian Sugar burlap bags-Also found some old High Times and they had a few Pakalolo styles.We re-routed the vibe to Mexico since that whole LA-So Cal vibe is hot right now for us!I'll be posting new stuff here-n-there when I stop drawing and painting and get some time to scan! In the meantime,check out my website(below) and get ready to grin from ear to ear- Or your smile back!

Thanks Hewey!
It's really not that hard-just time consuming.paint-seal-dry...repeat.It's well worth the effort but Please,test all sealants on a practice area first! I've lost 2-3 nice pieces that way! One time I didn't read the can and sealed over a crisp clear painting with an opalescent sealent-It looked like it drank a few London Fogs!Plus,while each layer is drying,you can work on other pieces.Speaking of pieces,I have more than enough pieces for the upcoming show, but the inspiration from y'all at TC just takes hold of me so be on the lookout here for some more fun stuff!! Thanks for checking out the site-Green Village is really fun to look at up close and just to really look around the place.I decided for just the huts with no ocfcupants in order to allow the architecture to communicate the narrative.Thanks for the props!Here's a brand new one that I'm currently painting.I'll show the sketchbook study for now and post my progress later!

Ken- I just had a look at your website--you're a madman! Everything is awesome-so much to look at, not just on your website but in each individual piece. I really need to get a 'real' website put together. Do you have prints for sale? Would really like to see some of your tee designs also. Keep up the fantaaaaaaastic work!-and give us more, more, more, more!!!!!
