Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Wow, dug up from an ancient Tiki-Crypt this unearthly pristine un-decayed drawing of "Dracula Drinks ...a MaiTai"!

"Jeepers Creepers! It's like he's Alive!"
Oh yeah, baby, I recall this drawing, it just flowed outa' me!
It's so darned expressive! Love it!
BUT THEN, I tried so frickin' hard to recapture that energy in the final painting...
REALLY ...it was hard to do! See for your self.

Dig it? Take a stroll round the Tiki-Market-place, it's up for sale to help celebrate this "Season-of-da'-Witch".
ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe,
So... my Art-Agent/partner, Abbas, and I were over at the Royal Kona Resort talking about the last few (& seemingly endless details!) putting together the HUGE Body Glove Tiki-Mug / 60th Anniversary party we are throwing... October 24th next month! In the back offices of the resort I saw THESE Tikis! They are being replaced, or moved, cleaned up, or something, and transported from one place in the resort to another. Well, I'm sorry to say I DID cause a scene, and I wouldn't let go of the tikis, ...until poor Abbas had to pry my hands off and apologize to the manager of Food & Beverage Services at the Royal Kona Resort as he led me (crying "Mine! Mine!" ) out of the office.

I think maybe I'm working too hard.
Sorry, Abbas, & Jeff, - thanks for all your understanding and Aloha

BP~

Well double posting this one for obvious reasons...

Awhile back I asked Brad 'Awesome Sauce Tiki Shark the Man the Myth the Legend' Parker if he minded me using some of his designs on a mug. He was cool as ever and totally down with me rippin' his work

Took me awhile to actually get to it due to other things in progress... But I did and too impatient to wait and show off the finished piece. it's bisqued but needs glaze and high fire.

Standing at about 7 inches tall I give you the... well, first the origin...


TWIN TIKI MUG:


(i hope I did them justice)

Cool! Wow, that came out great! Better than I was even hoping! It's really beautiful.... love the details like the leaves of plants on the sides.... quality all da' way! I'm happy I was able to inspire it's creation! Looks good, and thanks for asking before you posted it up... ( personal messaged me)
Someone should nab that swanky mug!
It has my official seal of Tiki-Shark approval! Go ahead - and big aloha to the person lucky enough to nab it! (but they should buy a print to go along with it!) As a matter of fact, if you do buy the mug, and don't have the print, contact me and I'll see what I can do to get you a really good price. These one of a kind things HAVE to go together! A must! 2-D and 3-D.... I know cause I LOVE looking at my "Diga Diga Doo" Tiki mugs and the Art print! Gotta do it! Let me know how it works out! ...and I'df LOVE photos of how it's framed / arranged or what evers... I've seen some really cool things that folks have come up with!
Here's an example:

SWANKY!

I just have my mugs on a shel in front of the framed print...still looks cool.

Here's a cool drawing I found during the big clean up going on at the house / art studio right now. We gots folks coming for the big Body Glove event next month, so have be getting things cleaned up...was digging through some old piles of paper, found that cool Dracula drawing. And then found THIS too - a drawing of the Were Wolf of Waikiki!
Thought you might dig seeing it.

ALOHA!

I dig Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech...
Salvador Dalí, for a lot of reasons...
but a lot for these two photos of him that I remember seeing as a kid.
He was as strange and wonderful as his art.

His moustache & his ocelot.

Wow... dig it.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Working on "The RED TIKI LOUNGE" 24" x 30" acrylic on canvas...

Here's the whole thing so far...

Here's a closer look at the Chrysler 300 and the Bela Lugosi Tiki-Mug

I finally got the Shark reflected in the car just about how I want it...now I gotta figure out if I want more sharks, and then I gotta put in the highlights so you can see the shape of the car...

Here's the Art Studio... AFTER I straightened up a bit!

Still got my "Halloween Lights" on, and have not burned down the joint yet!

I've been meaning to get this up for a while. A proper display of "the Four Classic Monsters in Hawaii, and ..the four monsters in my art studio! I think I've been wanting this since I was 9 years old. A ...few years later I finally got it! "

You can tell Halloween is coming because the sunsets are getting more and more pumpkin colored.
ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

Getting a little more done on my current painting: The RED TIKI LOUNGE.

Whole thing...


Detail of the Chrysler 300 - it's starting to get real "low-Brow" and making my Imaginary Low-Brow-Art Muse smile.... finally.


Brad's Imaginary Low-Brow-Art Muse Sez:
"Yeah. I dig the Head-Lights. Hey, all I think iz a few extra skulls here and there
is always a good idea in a "Low-Brow Art" painting! But, don't listen to me.
HEY, It's not like I got a gun to your head. Ha-Ha-Ha !
(...it just feels like it creatively.)"

Aloha Tiki Tribe...
Fighting a cold/flu bug I got from some tourist...
Today was the first day I was up and around , a little. Worked on a banner ad for ...ah...something...here it is...



If you can't be in Kona for the big party, go over to the tiki market place and check out where to get the cool BG tiki-mugs on line...
Ah ...(AH -CHEW!) snif, snif... er... think I'm gonna' crawl back into bed.
Aloha.
