Mankind figured out how to do this with chalk boards and note paper and pencils. Makes you wonder (and scared) what is being designed now... that we may or may not know about.
A hui ho Bikini Atoll!
Sorry fer being so moody, but, guess I'm listening to the audio book Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson and it's got me thinking about the crazy things that came out of the war in the Pacific.

I wrote a (bad) Haiku book review about Cryptonomicon:

pearl harbor cold
a godzilla enigma
world war two much gold

aloha

Aloh Tiki Tribe!

In the chaos that is my art studio, here's one shelf with some real-deal tikis, and some not so real tikis...and Hell Boy guarding them.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
So... FINALLY we are down to getting another set of tiki mugs done! ...well, the first steps of the design. ...which is based on a "tiki-Art" painting, ...which is then based on an award winning short monster/surf film by writer/directer/surfer Greg Browning.

Here's the mug design in step one (there abouts) with Tiki Farm.

Here's a cool behind the scenes on the making of the sea creature movie you might dig...

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
Tikifool - THNAX so much! Howzit , I've been thinking of you a lot lately. Hope all is well on your side of the enchanted island.
Here is the this mug isn the BODY GLOVE SEA CREATURE tiki mug set - coming in 2014 from Tiki Farm.

front & side view of the Body Glove Anniversary tiki mug

Side & Back view of the Body Glove 60 year anniversary Tiki Mug
These mugs are from elements from a tiki-art painting I am doing.

Working on the palm trees and ground.... this painting will be used in the box packaging for the tiki mug set...
some changes are being made on the mugs a little . Mostly just verbiage. Like where the words go or don't go...
all this is based on the surf/monster film by Greg Browning - check it out

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
I heard a weird rumor that Face Book is killing Tiki Central. Think that's true? ! Huh? I donnuo. I remember almost going into a cold-sweat panic when TC was down for a while - I felt so cut off from the tiki tribe! I'm way out here on this island. This is like a connection to civilization...or the tiki underground.

I post thing on fb, in a careful way. It's almost a commercial area for me. Tiki Central is more hard-core "Tiki Tribe", and I can post more stuff without seeming too weird. And I think I will now, after hearing that rumor, gon out of my way to post more on TC.

Here's the tiki Shark art studio - it was hard getting back to work on the acrylic painting after doing all that pencil work on the tiki mugs. Changing gears...tricking. Color! Layers!
ALOHA!
Tiki-Shark

Unfortunately, I think it is true. I tried to keep my FB friends and TC friends in separate tribes, but it could not be done. I'm guilty myself of posting more on FB and than TC anymore. The problem was the gratification. Post something on TC nowadays and maybe you'll get a reply or two. Post something on FB and you'll get replies for days. Gotta post more on TC to keep it afloat!

Anyhoot, fantastic work, Brad! I really like how the Body Glove mug is shaping up. Can't wait to see it and the movie when all is finished!

The art is incredible so much detail to enjoy.

I love Tiki Central and hate facebook so the news I read here is horrible. Wendy
