One page is never enough. I just have to back paddle to look at those I've been missing. Come to think of it I miss you too Kenny. Oasis was such fun, plenty of hugs but remembering isn't as good as having. See you at some event in the future dear friend meanwhile keep em coming, Wendy

Thanks tigertail! I really dig that shrunken head too....The theme itself...the head in repose....reminiscent of john the baptist....and especially taking the semi-cubist angle...it kinda makes it into a higher art than the usual kitsch treatment of the subject matter. Glad you enjoyed your visit!

You are just too kind,Wendy! Your encouragement,and love always brings inspiration and smiles to my heart! and I'll keep em coming as long as you do,my dear! xoxoxoxox

ookay! It's been awhile,but here's some more progress on the 6 foot Cannibal King
Still not done,but CLOSER!
Lot's of Progress made on this puppy over the labor Day weekend! i had worked here and there,for an hour or two every few days,but pulled a marathon paint/nap/paint/nap/repeat from Saturday morning til Monday evening! Iced Coffee...i Loves YOU!


here is the TOP-MIDDLE-BOTTOM
joined together so you can get a better look at the deets!






a little more fleshing out of Tommy's favorite bird!
not actually... this bird gives Toe the CREEPLES!


Detail of top left bird


As you can see, i realized that these poor birds need a little bit of comfort and stability in their lives and community.soooooo i made a few nests inside the skulls!


Close-up detail to show how the ribs and horns and tusks are affixed to the helmet.Two obvious head wounds serve as the perfect spot to cram and tie some ribs onto!


a little bit more work down here...not much.... Should i add flowers? hmmm....


A little bit more detail on the bowl of snacks ,chest,and arms


Nosey Neighbor Bird fleshed out a little bit more...


There! Much more comfortable!


a half finished nest...


Even tho the Cannibal King derives his Helmet shape from the Lono style from Hawaii,i have taken some liberties,as usual, and added 1) the cassowary-ish birds and 2)this smiling heart shaped mouth,both loosely inspired by Papua New Guinea fauna and decorative motifs... Sorry! When you create your own artistic world and inhabit it with characters,there's bound to be some overlap and whatnot...

and so ends our entry for tonight..
Sweet Dreams Ohana!
and thanks for all the visits!

Mahalo Hang10...glad i can still bring some amazement to folk's lives....



Well....unless you were hiding under a rock
there are still a few Classic Cocktail Sets available at Tiki Farm..
HERE!
http://www.tikifarm.com/cocktailset.htm

Customized the first set with cel-vinyl and enamel
and it got swooped up by one of the natives....


Soooo....this weekend
i decided to paint up another one...
This time skipping out on the time-consuming enamels
and just tinting the exposed bisque...
and came up with this!


the SECOND Hand-Painted Custom Classic Cocktail Set!
Yhis one os more night time and i've dubbed it the Colorform set
because it reminds me of the Colorforms of my yourh for some reason...

Here's a roundabout of the Pitcher...












and here's a roundabout view of the mugs...








That's it until i can get my PNG crocdile studies scanned to share!
Good Night Dear Ohana!

Wonderful stuff as always, LLT. Yeah those painted classic cocktail sets remind me of colorforms too... guess the idea pretty well stuck once you mentioned it. Those new birds are creepy are they gonna pluck my eyes out for looking at 'em too long? I look in their beady little eyes and can't help but think of Bodega Bay...make them stop looking at me!

Ken - I'm STILL ALIVE, despite a serious attempt to kill me!

Your new work is SHOCKINGLY COOL!

I see the colorforms connection, but those were never this awesome.

I'm always surprised that you are in a CONTINUOUS STATE OF EVOLUTION. How do you always keep your work so fresh after all this time? Baffles me...
