WOW!
Kevin…. ah, keep the stick , ands use that instead of your hand … JUST IN CASE.
I know sharks are all cute and cuddly looking, but you never know what's going on in their little top-of-the-oceanic-food-chain-fishy-brains!

Here's another TIKI TOY

Black and white pencils and color - ( pantones spec-ed out ) done on a computer.

The Other Side…

It'd be great if these make it all the way throughout he gauntlet of Toy Production and end up on shelfs here in Hawaii…
Never know what kind o' UCK you'll have getting stuff made. Pono (good) or things could go crazy - Lolo!
…we shall see!
Big Mahalo for watching'!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
I'm re-painting a printed TIKI-SHARK Skate Deck. It was a bit too dark, so I'm brightening it up, and adding in a character - to stand in front of the Looming Tiki, give it some scale and some depth.
(Yes that is my X-tremely messy Art Studio - forgive the hurricane that just went through it)

It took a few tries to figure out how to set up a Skate Deck to paint on it.

At first I lay it down, but that hurt my bad back and I soon figured I had to hang it up and paint on it like a canvas.

So the first few slaps of paint went on just to cover the finish, which I took a fine grain sand paper to, to rough it up, give it a tooth that the acrylic could stick to. It was still tricky, and took several layers to properly cover the slick printed graphic.

It also took several hours to "get into the groove" on this project.
Now... it's finally starting to look like something … More laters!

Big Mahalo for watching the paint dry!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

Here's tonight's sunset.

The view of the Big Blue from my back Lanai.

Funny, I can watch the sun set every single night…

And I never get tired of it.

Each time it's different.

Every time it's beautiful!

Aloha 'Oe!

Thanx LLT!
Working on the last few remaining body glove Tiki Mugs - these are getting the hand job paint job.

Here they are..

The Shark-Tiki Tiki Mug being my fav so far…

I dig the shark aumakua swimming round their bases.

Here's the fearsome three-some line up of the Body Glove set.

Here's a GREAT model shoot using the SEA CREATURE TIKI MUG.

Of course every sunset is not all red and rosy here in paradise, here's a nifty warm tropical rainy one.
Big Mahalo….

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
OK time for another step by step Hawaiian sunset!

Step one… evening.

Step two… twilight, (The Menehunes wake up about this time)

Step 3.) Deep twilight.

Step 4.) Then the twilight starts to glow…like the sun changed it's mind and the sky is starting to get brighter again.

Step 5.) What the…? Suddenly everything goes orange?!
Wow! Freaky-Tropical sky!
After that, it got dark in a normal way…but , wow, that was sorta' weird.
Someone said it's the "Vog" catching the last rays of the sun ...or something?
Someone else said it has to do with the strange electro-magnetic weather controlling flux around the big island that came from the secret military base ( where they are experimenting on UFO technology) hidden in the middle tween the volcanic peaks…
Hmmmmm… I Dunno!

Speaking of weird…

I re-painted a skate deck ( featuring Scardy Cat ) it's original skate-deck print/decal was too dark. SO, Instead of wasting a beautiful maple Skate Board, I grabbed my paint brush set out to make it special and swanky. This "re-paint / over-paint" on the board came out pretty nice, - this piece will hang at the "La Luz" gallery in my 2016 show.

I have another Skate Deck that is too dark, and I had an Epiphany one night about what to do to it: a really cool-crazy low-brow idea what to paint on it.
But, first, I want to find out if my printer can scan in these "re-painted decks" so I can use the art on future skate boards.

More Laters!

Whoaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a KILLA Job on the skate deck!
I'm afraid to even ask how much that would cost to own this piece.
Nice work Brad!
