the artists is chicago's own ken keirns...google his name to find his website....his paintings of women are great and the site is worth checking out..he's really making a name for himself these days so buy now while he is still affordable, or else kick yourself in a few years for not having scored one.....they kinda remind me of mark ryden's style.....

not to solicit ( heaven FORBID anyone do that on THIS sanctified ground) but your wall could use a piece of art like I DO....
any of those are available--I have quite a few new ones on larger monkey pod plates
just a little UNOFFENSIVE SHAMELESS self-promote..but one really WOULD look cool in your swank exotica bar..




I like the use of the monkey pod bowls....i really hate those things but you put them to good use....not in the market right now for new art..i've got a bunch of stuff stored that has yet to go up, including a small shag painting i got years ago...

as for the rest of you that want to hawk your wares, please p.m. me or email me...i would like to keep this thread specifically for showcasing the tiki room....i have nothing against shameless self-promotion, god knows, i'm guilty of it myself but if you want others to see your artwork, start a thread for it or use one of the already existing threads that cater to that specific purpose...i believe that i started one awhile back called tiki bay, which no one ever uses....

hey i love your bar!!! well done!

and i'm VERY envious of your awesome collection of art - those mitch decks are particularly sweet, but really it's all great.

i also have a "bunker" underneath my house with low beams (most people don't have any troubles - except i'm 6'4 so i hit my head every now and again to my constant enjoyment) - which i am looking to transform to a tiki bar/room so seeing yours gives me great inspiration!

cheers,
harro.

Great bar, TMcS! Not another like it anywhere.... It's nice to see Louie and the "Bomber" too... I feel like I just saw a couple of old friends!

Tipsy, I think your room is wonderful. I watched step by step as Ben carved your Maori tiki, I am so thrilled to see it in it's new home. Aren't you thrilled that one of his new Tiki Farm mugs is based on your tikis style. It's great.

Heck, I've been collecting those pineapple bowls for years so I could start a business painting them. I'm going to post one, Dan's collection is in three rooms and I couldn't find the others I've done. bb you've done a great job.

oh and hey bb want to buy a ton of bowls? Wendy

Thanks to you all for the kind words.....a large part of creating anything involves the sharing of it with other like-minded folk.....and with that, here's more pics of the crapper!!!




custom pinstriping on the toilet seat and light fixtures by "voodoo larry" of sideshow kustoms....i got the fixtures from home depot for a mere $10 each and the toilet seat was from ikea..another $10 bargain......



here's a close-up of what they look like....



here's another shot from standing in the doorway.....



all the original art in this room is by Paul Moch....I was going for a sci-fi psuedo hot-rod thing....the title of this painting is "alien hot-rodders from the planet eight-ball"......the towel racks and toilet paper holder are from our friends at speedcult in detroit.



this just shows where the washroom is located in relation to the bar.....close by!!!




figured i'd throw this one at ya too.......oh yeah, the shelves are from ikea as well...forgot what i paid but they were cheap!

The shelving goes superb with the RoBo concept. Beautiful getaway. My male friend and I come to Chicago often, is your lounge open to fellow Tiki Centralites??

Another FANTASTIC Tiki Room!

Mrs. Mojo and myself had a blast at the Seattle Home Tiki Bar Tour because just like this post it's so much fun to see what people come up with!

TC'ers are such a creative bunch!

I also love what you did with the bathroom....I wish I could remember the site which had a GEAR SHIFT TOILET HANDLE for your Hot Rod Toilet!
