Aloha Tiki Tribe…
More from the fish eye lens of my new go pro… yes my 4 other cameras are ALL f-ed up …this tropical weather does not like electronics!

Here's a better look at the album that Scardey Cat is listening to.

Here's my messy art studio as seen by a gold fish.

Here's a CU on Scardy Cat

Another look a that rum bottle and record.

The the whole thing.
"Haunted Hotel Honolulu"
aka
"Scardy Cat Meets the Ghost of Exotica"

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Happy Aloha Friday!
Here's Friday's sunset…

Putting the finishing touches on the "Haunted Hotel Honolulu".


Since I put in the Exotica album and Rum bottle in color, I needed to balance it with the three nick-nacks on the shelf also being in color. The pumpkin is …ah…orange. Then the Tiki will be Diga Diga Doo blue, and the skull will be yellowy bone in color.

Almost done… have a good week end!

More Laters!

Aloha!

"Scardy Cat & the Ghost of Exotica"

I'm working on the Mug and Skull… gotta get 'em perfect!
(obsess!)
Then a few more cracks and chips and weather & ruin….then it's done!
an all-nighter? Maybe?
( Hmmm what would LLT do or Big Toe do? )
OK.

an all-nighter…..

Laters!

Good morning Tiki Tribe,
OK guess I'm getting too old to pull all nighters..I couldn't do it. Konked out …but up and had a morning walk now.

This is what the Big Island and the big Blue looks like at 8AM Sunday.
Back to the studio and to finish Scardy Cat!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Well, There is a really fun side to being a Low Brow Tiki Artist…

Remember early in the year we started making skate boards with my tiki art on them.

It seems a major retail chain liked them, and ordered some.

I saw them in the stores in Honolulu, and they are in the store here in Kona.

And the Next Generation of Skate-boarders are now being introduced to "TIKI ART" via the TIKI-SHARK boards!

It's pretty heart warming to make something that I thought was cool and swanky,
and then, see kids enjoying the heck outa' them too!
That's gotta' be one of the best parts of this job.
(makes me feel all warm and mushy inside)

LLT - It took me a while to digger out. I read the entire instruction book, and still didn't get ti. Then I went on you tube and watched a few tutorials, and that helped a lot. It's easy once you learn the secret way it works. What the cryptic symbols on it's tiny screen mean. It's actually fun to play with - with that sacked fish eye lens. You never know what you got till you down load the thing. A feature it has that will be a lot of fun for you and me, once we learn it, will be the Time Lapse feature. We can set it up and let it take time lapse photos of us painting, then I think the small movies are easy to up load to you tube or suck, and we could link to them from TC, and the tiki tribe could watch us paint… once we figure out how our Go Pros work!

Like these:

HHH -finished… for now…I think.

Worms eye / fish eye view

I put it on the wall and will just let it be. I think I'm in danger of over working it.

Later on Tiki Tribe!

My pleasure cy.
Here's the latest on my current painting…

"Haunted Hotel Honolulu"


At first glance, I thought you put a tiny photo of your four Monsters in the current painting. The ceiling lines of your room match with the painting's.
