Awesome works as always LLT! As for publishing a book of your art, have you ever thought about trying to start a kickstarter campaign to raise the money to publish one? http://www.kickstarter.com/
I would love to have a book of your fantastic art as well.



Hey Tigertail!
Toe alerted me to that
and we thought up a few half-ass schemes
but a book.... a Children's Book
a little lost tiki book
has always been my dream...
but .... seeing as i've been painting stories
as opposed to actually writing most of them down
a book of artworks....
just tiki works first...
then OTHER Books
of all those other tackled genres
and a comprehensive book of collected sketchbooks
even,,,daresay i.... a book of strictly erotic works....

But anyways... i have a few goals this summer
1) finish the website
2) finish long overdue commissions
3) create some KICKASS paintings for the kinnyBigToe show in January
and Just up the antee and make Tommy Boy really rise to Le Challenge
and we create an awesome show
4) work on that BOOK!
Howzat Sound?


i will be sure to alert the public once a book is in the works....
and Thank you SO much for enjoying this creative journey with me
it's always fun to have friends to chat with and brainstorm via the intertubes!
Heard Mojo Nixon use that
and the term "butt cancer"
on OUTLAW RADIO
we have on that there computer radio thing piped in at work..
Check it out if ye got a bent for that kinda music!
Funny as ALL HECK!

wish they'd play some Abner Jay tho....

Hallooooooooo Wendy!
Yes.. I do abuse my body with long work hours
long bouts of isolation
painting jags
,but brain stimulation/problem solving/learning
and willpower and discipline
(and at least a few naps thrown in for good measure)
It's a THING,a sickness
a drive
a calling
i dunno... i just get so derned happy and excited with the joy of creating
of exploring
you KNOW how that is....
We have a Mutual Admiration Pact!
Your spy painting is a delight
and those Tiki Bobs
YOU should do a book of all of those!
Thank you for inspiring me
HOPEFULLY as much as you inspire me!

Bowana!
Miss you ALMOST as much as i miss Wendy!
The colored ground on watercolor paper
Volcano Boy BOwl was
in the very tip top shelf of
the "failed drawings
and experimental surface treatment page" Repository...
Needing to save time and get the initial impressions of these mugs down
having prepared grounds really helped
NOT to interrupt the flow....
He's my favorite too....


but i'm mama's favorite...

Gee thanks Brad!
it was fun going back to the paintpen OVER the acrylic
i had done it for so long during my first 7-8 years
That i needed a Sabbatical to ween myself off of drawing
and more towards actual PAINTING
you know the deal!
quite remarkably so!
So now,when i do that technique of paintpen over acrylic ground
it's like riding a bike
and this Bike is well-greased
ANDS SUPER FAST!
Don't it feel
after doing it for this long...
That we're finally hitting our stride?
Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Anyways...
i finished the piece for ElroyArtSpace

here's the info
copied from my last post....
edited slightly....
I was asked by Joe at ElroyArtSpace
to be in their 3rd Annual Art Exhibition during
the Famous TIKI KON 2012 Event!

Here's their website...
http://www.elroyartspace.com/index.html

and the FACEBOOK page to Tiki Kon 2012!
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=19904&forum=18&start=2820&2828

the theme is
"What Makes Your TIKI Hapi?"
and it will be a 2-month long show
at ElroyArtSpace
Opening reception during Portland's
First Thursday Art Walk on August 2nd.

The requirements for the work....
1)Newly created Wall hang-able(under 40 x 36")
2)And the theme is ....
"YOUR artistic interpretation/answer of:
What Makes Your TIKI Happy?..."

Well
as you read in the last post
i had developed characters
friends
ohana
gathering together

BUT

the title eluded me....
until tonight

may i present?...

"the Happiest Hour"
acrylic and cel-vinyl on
One Dang Dern Beautiful piece of wood!
(Thank you tree!)
16x20"



i was pleased with the interior lighting of puffyfish!
Plus he finally gets a second drink!
after i dunno how many paintings!
the radiating lighting
makes him wiggle all happy-like!


a little nod to the ceramic masterworks of Munktiki
on a beautifully carved shelf
with a gorgeous outer tapa thatch thing goin on there....


Here's the shield guy from "Pele's Diamond"
replacing his dayjob as a backstabbing espionage guy
and relaxin with the Ohana...


and here's Volcano Boy Bowl
still debating if i should do a little more
design work
on the sides facing the viewer
(i don't have to do the OTHER side
because YOU'LL never see it,silly!)


and Here's a nice shot
of Shifty and his yet unnamed PNG shield mug buddy
He is just a little bit TOO Happy for my taste...
Whereas shifty is WAAAAAY riding his third MaiTai...
Also take some time to get lost in the overlapping
planes and grains of the table
from a distance it captures the mug's shadows
Close-up...you can just get lost in THAT Funhouse...




Here's an ULTRA -CLOSE-UP
for those more interested in PROCESS and TECHNIQUE

Areas where the Lighting Collides and get's all tangled up in each other...


and here's the lovely Bamboo,tapa,and thatching textures
ALL UP CLOSE! for YOU!



Okay... Back to the TOO HAPPY PNG Mug boy in that piece..
Was talking to Holden via e-mail
about our current TikiFarm project
that launches next month!

You bought Derek's so you Should Buy this One too!
and the other two future ones by future mystery artists!



Anyways....
i sent him a few of my dream mug pics i had posted earlier
and y'know what?
he really DUG this one!
"the Potion" Boy!


Ball was in his court
He tweaked it a bit
so as to function better for YOU...the Mug connisseur

and this is what we got's so far...


See Kids? Dream Mugs sometimes DO come TRUE!

and on that sweet note....

Stay tuned for further adventures of Unamed PNG mug!
I got's ta go to Bed!
work tomorrow..ugh.

Night Night!

There's very few minds I'd want to spend any time in at all, but I always enjoy these little visits into yours. I dug it all, this time around, Kinny. Thanks for the descriptions and discussions.

Gosh Kenny you just make me smile over and over again. I want to look you straight in the eyes to see if I can absorb some of your talent.

Creativity is your middle name and certainly is in every cell of your brain. I just love that there is so much to see in every piece that you paint and draw.

I know how much time it takes to post these photos. Thank you for each and every one of them.

I miss you too, Wendy

Very nice job on the mug set, Kinny
Off the subject for a moment I would like to see an animated cartoon from you
to see your crazy visions come alive could be very interesting.

Wow! even i didn't dig them all! You are too kind Professor! What's art if you can only share it visually? Adding a little bit of insight and discussion helps my fellow art brothers realize that they're not alone....that we all have the same fears,doubts,and brash instinctual decisions
that sometimes fall short of the mark...
I've always said that artists shouldn't be put on a pedestal removed from the people
They should be caged with hay on the floor and poked,prodded,and questioned by the crowd...
There are a lot of (I've found) WEIRD things we think about...stuff a lot of folks don't bother with..
it's good they a lil peek...
Thanks again for your encouragement!

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee x 100!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Wendy
my sweet art-sister!
I would love to just gaze into your beautiful eyes as well..
i LOVE staring contests! it's like you're gazing into a watery viscous soul of another human...
and with artists,,,it's like BAM!
As for creativity...you are the queen
All those Bobs.....incredible!
but the most inspiring thing is
that you got OTHERS involved as well
and created some of the Best and funnest and TRUE ART Tiki Bobs! You have SO much Heart
but the thing that is so wonderful about YOU
is that you not only have HEART for your artwork
but you have heart for all of us misfits!
Keep on keeping on Baby! I'll be seeing you soon at OASIS!

Heya Foamy!
Thanks so much for the comments! I've been keeping sketchbooks for quite a long time (1989 to be exact) and it's a real good gauge in terms of studying old content and styles and allowing me to monitor and hone up the parts are lacking...PLUS,there's always SOMETHING i've forgotten about,some old project or painting idea.....and it's surprising how sometimes genius ideas or masterworks slip through the cracks and are neglected for years... Pip! Pip!

Mahalos zerostreet!
Haven't been on here awhile,and now it's Done!
RIGHT AWN!
LOVIN your reverb piece! the way the grass sways,capturing that resounding pulsating 'verb!
There's gonna be so many stellar pieces in that show!
ElroyArt is a gonna SHINE!

Man! wish you could have went to Tikisharks and Mile's show at La Luz! I don't get out much,but this was a must see 'cause Brad is OHANA STRONG! It was an incredible showcase for both of them... Miles pieces were very small which provided the perfect balance to Brad's pieces in the adjoining room....In one room you were overwhelmed by delight and being flung into a world of BIG environments,sloshing and floating through brad's painterly textures and lighting....
and in the Miles room ,where you had to move in close to capture all the details ,like looking into one of them Candy Easter eggs with the dioramas inside....reading that back it sounds nuts,but that's how it felt... very small genius lighting, (actually Brad deserves kudos for that as well) minute brush lines.. i mean hair thin....and great narratives all around!
Got waaay too buzzed there with Toe and Doug and saw Hassan and Nick Camara And Holden and Sirginn and a bunch of the Tiki crew!
Here's a picture Toe took of all of us buffoons....

That's Nick Camara Mr. Tiki Magazine (what a sweetie He brought me back my
Ralph Steadman illustrated Curse of Lono! What a guy!)
Hassan Patterson(sp?) Haven't seen this guy in years ! Glad he followed us to the Tonga Hut for after party hangin out!
There's Brad! Hi Brad! Congratulations!
Doug Horne MY Giant and chauffeur for Toe and i,the Drinky Twins!
(Spicy Margaritas mmmmmmm!)
In the foreground is Badass King of the TikiMugs Holden Westland
and the guy on the right just photobombed in there
(but he's wearing a bitchen Paipo Moai Tangata MAnu pendant,so i guess he's cool...)

AAAAAND just because..
a few artjams ago, Toe and i
and i think Tyler
were havin an artjam
and i busted out a Birthday HoHo for Doug!
and the Madness ensued throughout the evening!
Here's a picture of Mick Jagger singing Happy Birthday to mah Giant!

Hello McTiki!
Thank YOU for vibing on the moods of the piece... Sometimes a painting reflects a mood not intended by the artist,
either it's because the painting rebels and finds its true intent
or the viewers misinterpret the purpose and feeling of a piece...
BUT SOMETIMES
everything works out PERFECTLY
and i smile BIG!
Happy Hour is one of them pieces...

Look forward to hearing your thoughts on these mugs
once they're ready
and sent
to hundreds
of greasy mug-coveting paws
around the globe!
Mahalo for the visit!



and now...... finally ,it's time for art.....
First off.....wandered a bit
stopped painting
and did a bunch of drawings
following my bliss and instinct
because it's only Aquarelle 100% cotton Watercolor paper,right?

Did a crapload of tissue paper and ink stains on about $250 worth of Aquarelle
baby has expensive tastes!
Here are the lot of em!
(i'm putting them HERE instead of my GALLERY posts ,because they ain't paintings
but be patient i have a piece in the works at the very bottom...


"the Chief's Bowl"
12 x 16"
ink,Copic pen,bleachpen,cel-vinyl,and pencil
on tissue paper and ink-stained
Aquarelle watercolor paper
private collection

a mixture of a loose study of a Hawaiian carving
with what i would imagine to be a cool bowl in a Tiki Bar!

i can almost hear em GRUNTING!!!!


a close-up of the face and grains


le VolcanO!


"Conversation with an Idol"
ink,bleachpen,and Copic marker on tissue paper stained Aquarelle watercolor paper
12x16



and one of my faves.....for the concept alone...
"Cry of the Toothless Cannibal"
12 x 16"
ink,Copic pen,bleachpen,cel-vinyl,and pencil
on tissue paper and ink-stained
Aquarelle watercolor paper

Haven't approached the
"psychology of the Cannibal" series in a while...
They've been
crying,remorseful,manic,guilt-ridden,lonely,
and a whole other mess of emotions
SO i decided to examine
the life of the toothless cannibal in this piece....
and lemme tell ya... it ain't pretty!


Here's a closeup of the top skull and his headdress


the lil midget skull above his nose...


and the one in his widdle hands...




"the Dreaming Head"
ink,bleachpen,and Copic marker on tissue paper stained Aquarelle watercolor paper
12x16
private collection

i liked the idea of a shrunken head,unable to move physically
but only through the spirit and mind....
it would appear to be a happy situation
WAY TO GO!


"Guardians to the land of Pele"
12 x 16"
ink,Copic pen,bleachpen,cel-vinyl,and pencil
on tissue paper and ink-stained
Aquarelle watercolor paper

This one was fun because i worked on it when it was damp so parts of it
have this nice messy immediacy (is that a word? it's LATE!)
Also the zigzag/triangle pseudo tapa stripe across the top
evokes volcanoes
and rugged mountains

a close-up of the shield to give you an idea of the messiness...


the skulls at their feet!


"Jungle Pool"
ink,cel-vinyl and bleachpen on tissue paper stained Aquarelle
watercolor paper
12 x16
private collection

This one is more about Papua New Guinea the land
as opposed to their art,Spirit Hooks.Shields,or Masks
i apologize to the purists out there
but it's just too dazzlin NOT to share!
This one was a fun opportunity to try and capture the lighting of Jungle foliage onto water...as well as playing with above and below the surface of the pool effects....nomnomnom!


"Shield designs inspired by Kamanggabi carvings"
(Upper Sepik,PNG)
ink,bleachpen,and Copic marker on tissue paper stained Aquarelle watercolor paper
12x16

a little altered study of the Masters..


"Outside the Doomed village"
ink,bleachpen,and Copic marker on tissue paper stained Aquarelle watercolor paper
12x16

Here's a repeat of an old favorite tiki of mine,but instead of hanging out in a Modernist architectural environment
i threw him back out in the jungle
where he belongs.....
for this one i used proper instead of stylized skulls
just seemed more appropriate....


"Patience"
ink and bleachpen on tissue paper stained Aquarelle watercolor paper
12x16

a quick Modernist study...very rewarding..


"the Restless Night"
12 x 16"
inkand bleachpen
on tissue paper and ink-stained
Aquarelle watercolor paper

Haven't done a Maori-themed piece as of late,and since i had the ink and the bleachpen..........

a close-up of the crowded mouth...


and Maori Tonguefellow



"Sun and Moon"
12 x 16"
ink,Copic pen,bleachpen,and pencil
on tissue paper and ink-stained
Aquarelle watercolor paper

loosely inspired by some Sepik River Spirit /Ancestor Hooks

Smile!


a Zoom-in of the crocs...


Birdy!



"Bath in the Land of the Volcanoes"
Tissue paper stain,ink,and cel-vinyl on Aquarelle watercolor paper
12 x 16"

This piece is for the Fire/Volcano/Pele ArtSwap going on now on Tiki Central! Interested in Paticipating?
Deadline is August 8th
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=42792&forum=18&start=0&173


"Sun and Moon"

a detail of the volcano in the background...


i think i'll do a piece JUST of this pineapple bowl...



Did some more Sketchbook Dream Mugs
while seeking a design to do on this HUGE 2x6 foot canvas i got at the Art Supply warehouse....








i hope to incorporate these kids into a painting sometime soon

HOWZAT for a drawing explosion?!?!?!?


But THEN! i chanced upon this doodle
and it caught me fancy...


so i sketched it onto the 6x2 foot canvas like so!


AAAAAAAAAAAh!!!!!
it'd the beginnings of a 6 foot x 2 untitled as of yet
CANNIBAL KING!
I'm doin it for the Kinny BigToe show in January
and i figured if i went big and did something MINDBLOWING
then that would motivate the Toe to do the same!
Which would mean TWO great Awesome Art pieces for the show!
YAY!

Her'es a size comparison....
I'm 5' 11"
and the canvas is at a slight angle so it wouldn't fall over....

Teeeeeeeen HUT!


and here's yours truly getting into the personality and vibe of the Cannibal King
before preparing for THE BRUSHWORK!


i wore that Lynyrd Skynyrd shirt especially for YOU ALL..
We can't always paint in Hawaiian shirts,y'know!

Here's 2 close-ups of the messy pencils..
MAN! What a MESSY MESS!

These birds give BigToe the creeps
so i think i'ma gonna paint him one for Christmas!


and here's a close-up of one of my favorite parts...
note the clever use of a Papua New Guinea smiling mouth
and birds
atop what is clearly a Hawaiian Lono-esque helmet
Somehow it works
does it work for you?



Note! this is for the artists
so if art-technique talk ain't your thing
GO TO THE NEXT PARAGRAPH...
i used a softer lead to sketch this down
and used my finger to rub in some of the lighting..
after that i SPRAYED it with a fixative
as i didn't want the lead to mix with the paint
it would muddy thangs up...
However,if you use a water-soluble pencil
then the blending with the paint is fine
and one can actually create some tones and shadows that way...

Anyways...that's all i remember that evening
for a spooky mist enveloped the backroom
it whispered something to me
and that's all i remember

until i awoke and heard some rustling in the Big room....
WAIT!
What's this lurking in the studio?




i lost the shots of the second stage of raw umber under-lighting
but as soon as i find em
i'll plop em on this amazingly long thread!


now for some details of the piece so far in three parts.....
TOP


MIDDLE


BOTTOM


Actually, in my head
this would be an ACTUAL SIZE Cannibal King!
Wait til you see it in person when it's done..
I think it's gonna be a good 'un!
fingers crossed!
Well,nice seein y'alls and thanks for the visits!






http://www.kenruzic.com will be up someday,REALLY!
it's just that I've been soooooo busy!
BUT I'm on FaceBook if you'd like to see more
if you don't prefer wading thru these epic-length posts
THO i usually post on TC first
(for obvious reasons)

Dr. Kinny,

You make my mind smile. Is this normal?

Thank you,
