Aloha Tiki Tribe! So finished up my ... lets see the 57th Mystic Tiki Painting if any one is keeping track. "Lava Tiki" is part of a set of two small paintings. The other is "Beach Tiki". Both originals will be on display at the Wyland Kona Ocean Front Gallery this Friday for the 4th annual "Best of the West" art show. The originals are already sold, however giclees can be purchased through Mahalo Tiki - I think I'll be creating a special paper giclee with both images on in in a horizontal format. http://www.mahalotiki.com/Beach-Lava-Tiki-Giclee-Print_p_274.html ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe! Well, I had a terrible thing happen to me. One of my very favorite and most powerful tiki mojo items was lost on a trip to ... I think it was to DEMA the big Dive Show. You saw me wearing it in many old photos... my Crazy Al Tiki Pendant! I got back to Hawaii...and went through all my stuff but it was gone! EE-GAD! Would the Tiki-Art Gods still smile on me? Would I still be able to paint? Would I still take a wacky photo? I freaked and contacted Master Crazy Al with my tale of Woe.... and low and behold, on the next full moon, a mysterious mob of menehunes arrive at my art studio with a package. under the banana leaves is.... a replacement pendant!!! I put it on ....and ....and once again ...yes ...I can feel the life return to my pinky-irish-freakly-white body. The POWER OF TIKI IS FLOWING AGAIN! All hail to high poo-baa Master Hoo-Doo Crazy Al! Crazy Al RAWKS! check him out! http://www.tikimania.com

Aloha Tiki Tribe, WHEW! Later after that big of red hot sun sank into the Pacific, and the island cooled off a bit, and it bacame a little less tropical... I could work in my art studio... in the cooling, "UBER-tropical" night, with hush of waving palms in the darkness out side I slapped paint on the canvas.... I had to get this TIKI lounge sign looking right. I wanted something mid-century-retro-Old-World with a hint of some secret other realm older than mankind itself where the Tiki Gods still hold sway... I'm getting there... I think...maybe... lots to still do.... ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe! You wanna' see something scary? (no, it's not the inflate prices of the Body Glove Sea Creature Tiki-Mugs that have not even hit the shelfs yet... you can get 'em at a good price still) this is the original award winning 7 minute film that features the CREATURE. Check it out... it was made by my buddy Greg Browning: Pro surfer turned film maker! (Not to bad!) ALOHA! http://www.bodyglove.com/campaigns/the-disappearance/?mwrc_session_code=SDaeAzPyhH7V6IjTf8qO&mwrc_session_code=48QhhGy080xEsv7xftD7

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE & HAPPY ALOHA FRIDAY! I worked late last night ..something was just wrong with the sky and the Gotham-City / Waikiki and how they worked into the mist of the tropical sunset. The first sunset I saw in Waikiki, I stood there as a light mist came down over the city, the light caught it and the whole sky - the very air - turned orange pink. I felt like I had been transported to "planet Hawaii" or something It was so dream-like and beautiful. Hawaii is really powerful on your first visit, but this was like artist over-load. I keep trying to capture that... but on 2-D that's about impossible. Anyways, I got it looking better, and the beach smoother out some more. Lots more to come.... like the sign on theTiki Lounge! (VERY important) What I like this time is I found out I could cut gill slits in my Poly-pop Tiki-Shark Pole face. Now it's a bit more shark. Nice... The mystery wahine needs a drink in her other hand, to match that smoke, and/or blade in her lowered one. I love the new term "Tiki-Noir", (the best audio version of Tiki-Noir is the tune "Tiki" by Martin Denny. Listen to it and I think you'll get me.) ...and I really want this painting to drip with it. Last thought in my head as I fell asleep , face against the canvas last night, was a single tropical flower in the lower right might be whats needed to balance out the city... we'll see. ALOHA! Have a great Week end! Now, go and check out this FRIDAY NIGHT TIKI FRIGHT FILM - "The Disappearance" by pro surfer / film maker and my buddy Greg Browning. Check it out here: http://www.bodyglove.com/campaigns/the-disappearance/?mwrc_session_code=ZXM6giY9va8a6TmC7L3I (and then pre-order the matching Tiki-Art and Tiki Mug Set!) (look over in Tiki Marketplace for da' mugs)

I know you've been struggling with this one, but your persistence is paying off it's really looking good! I think you may be right about the flower for balance (or something in that corner anyways). Awesome tiki mojo as always Brad!
