Ditto what Mike said... how on god's green ever lovin' earth do you paint so fast??? You ain't human.

And the Pingo... I am torn... I love it, but again with the creepy eye bird! Something is wrong with me I am starting to like the creepy eye bird!

I gotta ask... do you order that cel vinyl paint by the crate?
Is cartoon color the cheapest place to get that stuff?

Or do you have your own dealer by this time?

It was just so amazingly cool to see the sketches for the mug as they evolved and then the actual mug! Loved seeing some of the process.

Keep up the fantastic work!!!

Hello Ohana!
Well it's midnight
and a lil fuzzy
after kicking out about 15 pieces for tiki Oasis
Always like to give the kiddles Brand New Work
i will be sharing a few of the stronger ones today
and the others throughout the week
leading up to the event..

Toe brought me some chocolate velvet cupcakes
and some Whalers's Dark rum for my beeday Artjam on Thursday
Doug didn't show up cuz he was tired
but Andrew McClain,that guy you see with the big Moai mask at Caliente and such?
Yeah..him...he showed up to enjoy the evening's festivities..
To make a long story short
i drank a 5-hour energy too late this evening
so i spent the past few hours sipping Whaler's
and chasing it with Reed's Extra Ginger Brew
for a Dark and Stormy mood
that will hopefully lull me into sleep
for work tomorrow!
But first...
i must attend to this thread...

Hey Kinny, I think the new mug is a winner!
also I quite enjoy "the Volcano Bowl" it would look real nice in the lounge

I can't help but notice a little more whimsy in the new pieces too, Is Doug rubbing off on you?
keep up the great work.


Thanks Lancey!
Eagerly awaiting feeling that round birdhead with me thumbs!
You like "the Volcano Bowl"? Not so fast...scroll down-there's a few surprises below!

Thought of you this weekend as i painted and watched "the Abominable Dr. Phibes" ,"Dr. Phibes Rises","the Bat", "Last Man on Earth",and "the Bat" (with Agnes Moorhead!!!)
So it was a Vincent Price filled Art Blur this weekend as Vincent soothed the long hours of toil.....

the whimsy was always there....look back and you will see it,even behind the darker pieces...YOU just finally noticed...newbie!

As I was scrolling down looking at all the different ideas for the back of the mug I was thinking "wow, I hope the bird is the winner" and it was. The mug came out great.
All the "bowl" pieces look awesome.
The BOO frames are sweet too.
See you at Oasis.
Jon
And Deadhead should let you paint all their bottles...




Hey Jon! I was really trying to push the addition of a bird for this mug,and Holden felt the same...we agreed that the bird and the shield motif were a totally Ruzicsignature
so we went with it... And mahalo! Glad you like the newly born babies popping out of the studio! Ben's frames really help finish them and give them that Tiki Bar interior vibe...
See you soon!

Kinny this was so worth waiting for, this was a book all on its own and each page so good that it was hard to leave for the next. The work that goes into posting is an act of love for all of us who wait. Thank you for this gift. I appreciate seeing all that you do. The show, the mug the paintings all over the top terrific, just like you! Hugs at Oasis, Wendy

hey tigertail..
dunno where the energy comes from..
last week i had HARDCORE Mon thru Thursday working up to the MAGIC tradeshow the DAY AFTER Oasis/saw Flaming Lips on Wednesday,AND rode the Tilt-a-Whirl TWICE!
Drank a LOT of cinnamon whiskey and coffee at Thursday night's Artjam-painted til late
then got up at 8 on Friday to switch out some work at the Sideshow gallery in riverside
then got a Birthday massage,and an Art opening Friday night
and then it was a 15 painting marathon
and now it's Monday 12:35
so....to answer your question....
somebody's gotta do it....


i see that Egyptians have filled your art world for a spell...
it's always wonderful to peek outside Polynesia and see the whole
quiver of mankind's Art legacy..
so inspiring....

as for the Bird on the PiNGo mug..
Not to be accused of Hucksterism
but get one
'and you will LOVE to run your thumb along his head
and i BET he'll purr
(if you have enough drinks)
and you'll become close friends....


and to answer your question....
I'm not sure...
i've never been a guy to hunt bargains
i rely on them crossing my path

i just go to the Art Supply Warehouse
and load up
i NEVER look at prices when it comes to art supplies
if it works and is cheap-good
if not-ah well..

hey LLT!


You wouldn't believe hoe difficult it was to withhold these sketches from y'alls..
but one has to wait until the final production is Revealed
so it was a long-awaited pleasure to share some of the process with y'alls
Most folks just see the mug and the sketch and that's it..
A LOT more goes into these
but the main ingredient is Love!

And again! Big HUgs and Big Mahalos to all of you who visit and who read my rantings and enjoy the art
and especially those of you
who take the time and say "Hello!"
If any of you are at Tiki Oasis this year
Come hunt me down
i'll be vending at the Thor suite with Thor (duh!) and Crazy Al!
I'll have FREE PUPPIES and HUGS for ALL!


Let's get to some ART now
m'kay!


First ArtPiece is for the Cannibal Art Swap
Here on Tiki Central!
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=45414&forum=18&start=0
it's an embellished thrift store find
maybe it was Tongan originally
didn't;t get a pre-shot of it
just threw it on the pile of things to paint up
this weekend..
so here it is
(with a Louis Prima song title as the initial inspiration)

"Closer to the Bone"
cel-vinyl and acrylic over wooden thrift store low-relief carving
16 x 7"


Here are some close-ups so you can get a feeling of the relief carving
which provided some challenges and an opportunity to reveal the original
carver's intent under the paint...






and a close-up of his face
with a happy lil smile!


Next piece is my half of a collaboration with the
esteemed artist and ceramacist Mikel Parton (MP) (or Empee)
A fine fellow and great Buddy!
lookin so forward to a DRUNKEN BABY DANCE at Oasis,Empee!
Anyways,Empee sent me and Toe some shields
one of the smaller ones i painted up and sent back
so he could mount it on velvet
AND create a Beautiful diamond-shaped frame for it
FOR OASIS!

"Crocodile Shield"


Next piece is a combination of two previous paintings
more of a color study,but nonetheless enjoyable to behold..

"Night Drums"
cel-vinyl and acrylic on wood
with a Bamboo ben frame!
22 x 21.5"


some details fer ya!








Next piece is an elaboration of two previous pieces
thrown into an entirely new composition

"Evening Feast"
cel-vinyl and acrylic on wood
with a Bamboo Ben frame!
23 x 27"


and some details









and a sly commentary on Collecting/Hoarding with a Cannibal King
accumulating WAY too many bonesthat ebven his expanding belly
could handle!


"the Hoarder"
cel-vinyl and acrylic on wood
with a Bamboo Ben frame!
21.5 x 20.5"


and .....some details!









and here's a HUGE ONE!
49" long!
one of a few shields Empee sent us to paint up for Oasis this year..
I've been prodding Toe to do a Comedy/Tragedy Mask pair
so hopefully i can bicker him into it
cuz i KNOW it'll be GOOD!

I've got a Horizontal boat/fishing thing planned
in the meantime,i needed to get at least one HUGE Cannibal king headdress piece done for Oasis...
So............

"the Stowaway"
cel-vinyl and acrylic on wooden shield from MP
49 x 7 "


DETAILS!






and some ULTRA CLOSE-UPS!!!!












and some SUPER SUPER CLOSE-UPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




the Stowaway!!!!!!



That's it Kids
i am spent
This Rum is goooood...


Beddy Bye now...
G'night Dear Ohana!
See y'alls in a week or so.....





I will be vending at Tiki Oasis this year!
In a suite with Thor and Crazy Al to boot!
www.KENRUZIC.COM is Open to the Public!
(an ever evolving site-so visit often!)
I'm on FaceBook too!

Kinny, somebody ripped off your style. It's even got your favorite color scheme.

Will you & Toe be offering your "Kid Punching " service this year?
may I suggest a "Burlesque Dancer Sitting" service also?
I sure could use a place to park my Burlesque Dancer while I shop.....

Hey Lance!
i was thinking more Ernie Punching!
I have NEVER desecrated a Tiki with Buck teeth...

Burlesque Dancers and ALL Pretty Ladies
are WELCOME visitors at little lost Tiki's
Camouflaged pop-up tent of Eye-Bogglin art (working title )
They can add to the Eye-Bogglin!
tho,i imagine they'll be at Toe's booth...


anyways....Will post separate shots of the new ones,but in the meantime
here's a shameless plug...

Seeing as I'm prepping and making a mess of the studio tonight...
Here's just a TASTE of some of the NEWER work i'll have at Tiki Oasis next weekend...
Not to mention older pieces ,and some 3-d stuff,embellished mugs,as well as drawings and prints!
Something for every budget and taste!
how accommodating!
Come to the Thor lanai Suite and say "hello!"
I'll be vending and chawing the fat with Crazy Al and Thor there,
so it's sure to be a HOOT!
Oh!
and free puppies with purchase!
(while supplies last)

Again...Please excuse the mess
it's a STUDIO!












All of these are Screaming for Adoption
a Better Home than a Dirty Studio floor

Please help!
it's like the Island of Misfit paintings here!
I need the wall space!

Thank you for your time...
