Aloha Tiki Tribe!
OMG! Huge NEWS! I had a dream last night - you know one of these dreams where everything seemed MORE real than the real world? One of those! In this dream GOD was trying to talk to us, but we are imperfect creations and have such a bunch of "monkey brain" stuff going on in our minds all da' time we never get the message from GOD clearly. You know "Monkey Brain" is right? It's that never ending chatter of day to day junk we half to worry about- "...is my hair too long? Should I clean this tee-shirt or is that smell not too bad yet? Did I lock the front door? Is the garage door unlocked? Are we out of milk?" you know, that unending MIND-LESS CHATTERING filling your brain.
OK. So-far (ah, in the dream I had) the heaven sent message has BEEN CORRUPTED... and has come out as not information about God, but... about... Godzilla instead!

And, the real message was... er...let's see... I'm kinda forgetting it all now... gee.. I gotta start keeping a "dream diary" next to my bed again. Anyways, "Peace Love and Understanding?" No, that's Elvis Costello. OK, I forgot it. Nope, It's got something to do with watching All the Godzilla movies... in proper order... and then, the questions of the entire universe will all be answered to you!! All Knowledge will be yours! Cool? Huh? ...what? ....Well, gosh, it was just a dream.


(whew!) Great googly-moogily, that was a really long way to go for a really bad joke. I apologize, and I blame over work, and THOR - Thor told me rum was a great medium to clean your paint brushes.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
OK back to making Art...
I'm currently still working on the "Two Tikis" - acrylic on Canvas painting.

As you can see, I have a better idea about the sky and how it'll end up. The BG is starting to pull together well. Now on to the SEA, and the TIKIS!
Big Aloha!

Music is a huge inspiration for me. Exotica. Rock-a-Billy. Rock. Metal. Classical.

Aloha Tiki Tribe,
Music is a huge inspiration to my work. This exotica song is one of my favorites. If I had unlimited time (and money) I'd animate it and just put it out on the net. Art for Art's sake.
This musical piece I am always seeking to capture on canvas is "Tiki" (this version is by Les Baxter I think) It's a very powerful piece. Reaching at moments the same emotional realm of Metal, and Classical, it's got a "big Band" feel too, all equal in emotional intensity in my mind. Exotica/Metal is the musical form of my Pulp Tiki Art, I guess.

It'd be great to animate some of the great Exotica tunes... to this level of detail:

Oh well, I'll have to settle to just creating the best acrylic paintings I can instead of animations!
ALOHA!
B~

That leg art is good enough to give us full size photos of each view. Wendy

Aloha Tiki Tribe,
Here's a cool look at the Body Glove Sea Creature Tiki-Mug from Pencil design to first glazed piece.

Pretty swanky!
Check out the Tiki Events or the Tiki Market place for more info about this Tiki-mug, and the whole set it belongs to!

And here's a gander at the "Godzilla" shelf in my art studio after a few additions from my Birthday - all reference material for future art projects and a study into pop culture, of course.
Aloha!
BP~

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Had to share this...SWEET purchase by an art patron.

All four classic monsters & ""Hawaii-Ween" on skate Decks ready to mount on the wall.
Wow...A full house.
OK bad joke: a full HAUNTED house!
Sorry.
I don't even have all of them up in my tiki hut ... but I think I gotta.... They came out looking so darned good. And a lot of that credit goes to my buddy, Kevin, in LA who makes the decks. So, I have some stashed there in his art studio/ house of horrors, there in So Cal, if you purchase them, it'll be cheaper shipping from there than from here (Hawaii), until Kevin runs out. Thanks Kevin! You Rawk! Check out my Tiki Market place thread or face book page for more info...
Here's Kevin's FB page if you wANNA ORDER FROM HIM:
