Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Whew, been a busy few daze... Had guests from the mainland visiting- se I had ta' play tour guide. They brought a cold bug with them and I caught it. So I was a sick tour guide. And I was trying to keep up with my work, and we are getting things ready for the big Body Glove Tiki Mug party event in October, like the tee shirt designs and some local advertisements.. ...all a bit kooky. Anyways, they were seen off on their flight back to the real world, leaving me in my Hawaiian-fantasy land... to make some more Tiki-Art! Oh boy! I am working on a painting - the working title is "The Red Tiki Lounge" . It's part of a larger project - a possible art book / tiki-noir mystery novel. Never done a thing like this before, but it's looking OK so far.... Story in da' book keys around a large RED tiki that sits out side a Tiki Lounge. So, it's in da' painting, and I wanted to stop and do a study of it before I went further to really get to know what this tiki looked like, and to make it a cool as I could. So I'm doing a pencil - and maybe a ink study of it. In the painting is also a zombie who looks a lot like one of my "Tiki Culture Heroes" - I will let you look at the pics and figure that one out fer' yer' selves... HERE COMES da' ART!





~Big aloha! and "HAPPY ALOHA FRIDAY"!!!

Aloha Tiki Tribe -
OKee Dokee. "The Red Tiki Lounge" - that's the working title of the new painting. And the important item in the art/tiki-noir mystery novel I am working on with a writer named S. P. Grogan. (he wrote "Captain Cooked" - a mystery-treasure hunt that takes place on the Big Island). So In the painting, I have "The Red Tiki", and I figured I better design a good looking Tiki, and get in down now. This can be really hard sometimes - make it cool, and tiki -like but not something you've seen before. So I'm doing a pencil study, that I think I'm gonna ink it now, cause... well it looks better than I thought it was gonna look.


ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe - just got a new toy... er... I mean... a piece of pop-culture R&D for da' Tiki Shark Art Studio pop-culture archives.

It fits in well with my decor.. which is... ah... Tiki and ...ah... early to mid ...to late century "Godzilla"... heh.

Brad's pretend Art Muse Sez: "Oh Fine! Hey, that's a piece of film history and coulda' been worth something... IF ya' KEPT it in the BOX! HOWEVER, not only did ya take it OUT of the BOX, you thought it needed a better paint job - and now yer' "re-painting" it! Great. Just freakin' great! Ahem... did we forget about the canvas we were in the middle of?"

Aloha Tiki Tribe! As I'm working on this "Red Tiki" pencil study turned ink and acrylic illo - I found a really neat drawing I did a while back - "Pig Rider!" . This certainly needs to be a painting, or at least in a painting soon.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
ha , yes this is the study for the "RED TIKI", so of course, what do I do? I make an underpainting of brown and blue...no real red yet. I think that comes now. Almost done! Thanks for all the offers so far, - please check over in Market place for sale of this one. Then, I get to go back to the canvas today!
ALOHA!
