Aloha Tiki Tribe!

Body Glove Sea Creature!
Was working on getting the palm trees looking really .. weird and creepy and interesting... palm trees you'd find growing next to the "Black Lagoon" sort of things. Next, I'm working in some fore ground elements: a broken surf board (with a Body Glove logo) and the bones and skulls of unlucky surfers that were looking for the perfect wave on the wrong lonely tropical island... (Hey when they said "locals only" guess they REALLY meant it!) Gotta work on the far back ground.. follow the rules and work from the back forward... so sky, sea... still all monochromatic. I really am trying to learn the method of a monochromatic underpainting and laying in transparent color hues on top... creating depth and an inner glow.. that elusive trick of working with acrylic that has danced just out of my ability range for years... sometimes I got it... like when I painted the sky of "the Cat of Nine Cocktails" about 5 or 7 times to get it right... but I was suffering a summer flu and was fevering outa my head when I was working on that... I'd much rather do it this time without the flu.
Tiki action is coming out nice, better than I thought I'd get... these seem to have picked up a little "creature/shark god" (very toothy) look to them. Total accident on my part, but a happy one!
so far...more to come....

That issue of "Transworld SURF" that features the surf photography short film competition - and talks about the films and tells who won- is really a beautiful mag. I heard they were selling darned quick, (I think cause of that great image of the monster on the cover) so if you see one - grab it! Gonna be collector items I think. Here's me and Jenna Meistrell of Body Glove with my issue. (yeah, I asked her to sign mine. I admit I'm a big kid- and a huge monster fan... now, I really want Greg Browning and Scott Smith's Autographs on it too - they are the director and THE CREATURE!)
Again - Here's the link to the first place winning film...
http://surf.transworld.net/1000151561/videos/imaginarium-body-gloves-the-disappearance/
I got a copy of the film from Greg and am going to show it at my "Hawaii-Ween" art event on Friday here at the Wyland Kona Oceanfront Gallery. So, I'll be painting the creature piece live , and show the film so folks know what the heck I'm doing.... Talk about Trick or TREAT! Should be fun!
ALOHA!
Brad~

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

Thank you - I'm enjoying working on this new re-visioning of the CREATURE by the fine creative folks at Body Glove - I love the short film, love that it won - shows that the public still loves a good scary movie, and a mysterious sea creature stalking a tropical paradise... wonderful stuff! I brought the film to my "Hawaii-Ween" art show at the Wyland Kona. Brought the issue of "Trans World SURF" showing the contest, and had the creature on the cover! ..and brought in my "in progress" painting...got a lot of attention. Very fun night, perfect for Halloween!

See all the photos of the Hawaii-Ween Art Show on my face book page here:
http://www.facebook.com/bradtikisharkparker?ref=tn_tnmn

Or pop over to Tiki Centrals "Tiki Events" and look at the photos there: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=42660&forum=4&start=last&
Scroll down to the bottom to see the new photos of the event.

Wow! I'm really glad that we had the show FRIDAY night, and not tonight, Saturday - when a fiendish plot by some "evil Canadian mad scientist" sent a tidal wave towards Hawaii to wipe out Waikiki on the big Halloween Saturday Party night! Whew! All our "Hawaii-Ween" prep: the radio ads, the mailed invitations, the news paper ads, the flyer's posted up round town, and all that could have been for naught if we had a tsunami warning last night! but, thank you tiki gods for making it a fine and beautiful Friday night...

and the art show went off extremely well!

Big Aloha
Brad Tiki Shark Parker

Looks like you had a blast. Wish I could have been there, but that is just a wee bit from Oregon.

Hawaii-Ween is a very cool concept you should do it every year!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
tigertail777 - Well, it is a pretty unusual event for a art gallery as mainstream as a Wyland. We had a pretty good turn out, and the folks at the gallery said they had never put on an art show quite like it. they all had a great time too, so ..you never know, we may do it again. We held it the night before the big tidal wave scare - guess the tiki gods were looking out for us, cause the next night all of Ali'i Drive was closed down - all the shops, restaurants, and clubs were evacuated because of the possible wave. All the big Halloween Saturday night events were canceled! But not us! (WHEW!) Don't know how the numbers came out - the gallery will tell me later on if it was all worth it $ wise. We sure had a good time!

Big Beautiful full moon raising out of the jungle here in Hawaii!


Aloha!.

You timed it just right for a wonderful and scary time in Hawaii. Everyone who saw your art also timed it just right. Way to go, Wendy

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Yep, it was a great night for trick or Tiki!

Here's the painting "the Body Glove Sea Creature" - I've been so busy, hardly had time to paint! Adjusting the water line...

A closer look at Sea Creature Tiki #1

A closer look at sea creature tiki #2
I like their pointy shark-like teeth.

There is a rumor that Tiki Farm and me, will be making up a set of three mugs. They very well might be 1.) Sea creature Tiki #one, 2.) The Sea Creature, and 3.) Sea Creature Tiki # two. Along with a print of this painting, that'd be a fun set of mugs to have!

We'll know more by end of November. Could be some freaky-fun things to add to your mug collection!

big Aloha, and Happy Halloween!
B Tiki Shark Parker~

Aloha...
And Happy Halloween!
I've been put under an evil spell...and I'm sacrificing a piece of tiki art up on the alter of outsider art at an out-landish low price. Check out my lunatic ravings on Tiki Marketplace right about here:

aloha tiki tribe,
I feel like Bela Lugosi zapped me with the "Fire of Death"!

... or maybe it's a mix of too much Halloween candy & Rum consumed... or a case of the "after-Halloween Blues".
Anyways... life crawls on... art to do.
Hope u r well.
B~
