Hi, I was able to grab a few photos of Brad's visit to Tiki Marketplace.


Tiki Art Shark with danlovestikis.


Here he is with Tiki Tony.


I grabbed him for one more photo with the sign in back before he headed off.


It was special to have you at Marketplace. Thanks for being so kind to pose for photos, Wendy

I was just starting to relax a little bit about this whole "copy right pirate" thing, but when I heard they were stealing from my friends too like Crazy Al, I got Pissed-off All over again! It seems us Tiki-Artists are considered "Easy Targets"!
Well, Big Island video News had this to say... check it out!

Had a GREAT time At Don the Beachcombers last Saturday!
BIG MAHALO to all the tiki tribe who came up and introduced themselves - who I only knew from on line here at TC!
What a thrill, what a awesome place, and what wonderful people!

Here's me, Crazy Al ...and my new gold tooth!
Big Aloha!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Here's a little view of some new choice tiki swag! I picked up a original Tiki Tony Object d'Art at Don the Beachcombers! (SWEEET!) in the BG you can see a amazing hand carved Tiki of the tiki I'm painting in my current painting (The Red Tiki Lounge) done by Kai Koa.

Nothing like original art in the collection!! Big Mahalo you darned creative and talented Tiki Tribe Members!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

Hey Kai Koa That's a very sweet photo of you looking all native carving a tiki! Dig it! Well, maybe this might make you feel better, - I was just thinking I might paint Tiki Tony's skull, but, your tiki is so beautiful "as is", I'd never touch it.
Happy to see you carving AWAY from your inked skin, and not towards it! Remember what they taught us in boy scouts ...ah, do they even teach boys how to play with knifes in boy scouts anymore? Probably not. Sad. What's being a boy with out a knife collection! Remember how your friend would buy you a knife and the firt thing you had to do was cut yourself with it? Some kinda' good luck thing if I recall. Did anyone else have a child hood like that?

Anyways - Looks like you are already on island! Oh, dude, thinking of carving... check out this guy's work:
https://www.facebook.com/kauaicarver
He's like this big handsome Hawaiian dude with long hair, and he can really carve tikis, and makes bitchin' Maui fish hook jewelry... I just wanna' like... BE him!

But, soookay. I'm happy & grateful with my hipster hat, my Crazy-Al tiki-pendant, my gold tooth, and makin' da' Low-brow Tiki-Art painting. Very happy.

(pssst.... and tween u and me, the "V.I.P. Tour" is highly over-rated! I'd takes drinks at Don's over it any day! Mostly it's just a "thing" my agent made-up and said would sound cool on my face book page. Well, that.... plus the VERY, V E R Y, NICE art patrons bought a hand full of high end giclees on canvas! So..... cha-ching!!)

Anyways... I hate dwelling on the $ part of Art. ...with everything that's been going on. Tiki Tribe, all the bad ju-ju of my art being stolen, and lawyers doing their lawyer double speak, and threats from their lawyers on what 's gonna happen to me if I don't beat them... sheesh... I'm really sick of all this.... But, no way around it, but through. I gotta' pay the rent. Put food on da' table. Paint in the studio.
I keep trying to get the store and the land-lord to take "ALOHA" but they always demand cold hard cash!

ANYWAYS, Speaking of ART: here's the latest....

RED TIKI LOUNGE
24" x 30"
Acrylic on canvas
slowly being painted aganist waves of very non tiki energy crashing over me from another dimension.

I hear you Tiki Braddah! I was once in boy scouts and yes back then we even got to play with pocket knives. Kauai Carver, yes I'm aware of this talented carver, I friended his facebook page awhile back, he post some cool video's and does the coolest tiki carvings! Im not on the island yet but will be moving there in May, so Im currently in Seattle wrappin up the Bass lines on our newest Lefthead songs before they bring in my replacement. Sucks about them lame art thieves, but it looks like your getting a lot of press, so getting the word out is good, but enough on that, your latest painting is KILLER! I see you have been working on this piece for awhile, I remember the Bat Girl on this one from ways back and now it looks just about done, give or take another few weeks Ay? And if I don't get a VIP tour then perhaps a cruise in your BATTIKI MOBILE would be just as cool!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Working on the TIKIs our front the lounge. Really working to give them shape. cool blue light from the upper left - in classic low-brow style. I put in a wash of orange in the shadows to make them warm, giving it more depth. Cool light / warm shadows. Or Warm light/cool shadows. I learned that from Tim Hildebrandt.
