Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Working more on a the study for "Tiki-Dog".

I'm gonna' go for that controlled lighting. Spot light the dog. A back ground that maybe looks like it's a painted back-drop. Like a display in a natural history museum.
More laters~

Aloha tiki tribe,
Here's some sketches of the up coming ideas for that show.

Here's an idea I've had for a while that will be about a sunken Tiki Temple or grave yard with sharks swimming through it.

Aloha Tiki Tribe,
So Going over what is going to be in the big art show in 2016.
There are supposed to be 13 paintings.
One is done.
Many are already sold.
Here's the list.

1.) Scardy Cat meets the Ghost of Exotica" - This is the one that's SOLD.
It does have a color sketch that looks like this:

started like this :

Finished up like this!


2.) "Madame Pele Protects Hawaii from invading invasive species"
This is a huge idea that's been in my head years, just didn't know if I was good enough to pull it off right. Here a VERY rough doodle.


3.) "The Sunken Tiki Temple" (with guardian Shark aumakua


4.) "Surfing Tiki King"


5.) "Tiki-pup"


6.) "Tiki Dog"
Here's a sketch:

A tone study

The painting in process:


7.) Moon flower Tiki. It's sketch looks like this:


8 ? Here's a rough sketch that's been haunting me - A Tiki God vs a Pink elephant in a tiki Bar:


9 ? un-known so far - but might be an experiment of re-painting over/ embellishing and continuing the work on a finished "Giclee on canvas" - a "double painting" kinda'.

10.) "Kihawahina meets Nanaue" (or Dragon girl meets Shark-Man)


11.) "A Black Cat Crosses the Path of the Night Marchers" - (this one is half done)

This idea started as a story from a friend about her house sitting on the path of the "Night Marchers" !

a sketch from a dream I had after I went to bed that night, still thinking about night marchers…


12.) "Dragon Wrapped Tiki"

A sketch


13.) "Cthulhu thinks on a Tiki"

Here's a real "Pop-Culture" - Surreal" idea. 1920's Pulp "Weird Tales" magazine author H.P. Lovecraft creature sits on a Tiki.

Another sketch

Then to push it into "Low-Brow" I thought lets make him in the pose of Rodan's "The Thinker"

More laters….
ALOHA!

Badd Tiki - Thanx! That drawing got so much response, I was very shocked. Then a patron asked for it to be made into a full painting - no problem! Should be a blast!
What I'm working on now…
Well, after a rough week-end in which I strained something in my already messed up lower back! Ouch! And then was told one of my collage buddies passed away - man, that really hurts. He was a friend I really wanted to keep in closer touch with, but this world pulls us apart sometimes.
Anyways I'm working on "Tiki Dog" (when I wasn't icing my back)

Here's da' Dog...

Here's a close-up on his tiki pendant, and a lll the detail I'm gonna' have to paint on the flowered lei! (!)

We had a pretty cool sunset last night - purple/orange and yellow against Purple. I had seen one extremely dramatic sunset back in LA like this - a brush fire was involved I think. this had some fog going on, but for a few moments It was quite something.

Long ago I put said sky into an old painting… "#5 the magic skull"

Here was the strange "VOG" tinted sunset last night…
