aloha

the wanderer - My Hawaiian Yoda told me that Hawaiian is "Ha" of the breath and then "Wa" …er I forgot but "Wa" was something cool and important, then "II" which stood for the Hawaiian supreme being, but one that no one spoke of by name. Hmmmm, I had never heard of this before, in all my reading and talking to Hawaiian folk, and thought that was a nifty bit. Yoda rattled off a longer version of the name no one should speak, and it was impressive.

So, at first, I had thought Ha-Wa-II was some thing about the "Breath of life" between the "sea" and "sky"…but I was off, according to Yoda. More like the "breath of life" from the supreme being or something like that. My Jedi training is going slow I suppose. Mostly I still really dig painting tikis, I guess there is a deeper full fillment I get from painting them, and sure, we all know they can represent other things. Or at least could if we wanted them to. Represent man, or man's creative spirit, or a higher being the sea or some force of the cosmos. Still mostly I dig painting tikis… because I dig painting tikis.

the wanderer
No German philosopher but a surfer looking for the perfect wave. Not looking down into the sea of moist, but looking down into the sea.
A few brush strokes on the sea and it'll be finished.
Aloha and laters….

Thanx LLT!
I wouldn't be makin da' tiki-art with out all your support … remember in the beginning I would call you like every 5 minutes to ask you what I should do next! Watching you paint on Tiki Central got me so excited about main king Tiki Art …that well… you are my inspiration. Still are!

Now, I'm gonna' take TIKI to Washington DC!
Check out his News link:
http://damontucker.com/2014/06/17/cutting-edge-local-art-company-attending-hawaiis-first-ever-hawaii-on-the-hill-in-washington-d-c/

I'm going to Washington to represent small business on the Big Island to Congress and the law-makers of our great nation. Who knows, maybe I can give the President a Tiki Art Calendar? Wouldn't that be a hoot in the oval office! Oh well, first I got to get ready for my July 4th Art Show at La luz de Jesus Gallery in Hollywood California, then on to the White House! Then, we're gonna be drinking at the Mai Tai Fest here in Kona.

THEN in Sept, we are having the first ever Science Fiction convention in Hawaii…

right here on the Big Island!

I'm setting up a booth with my Hawaiian comic book making buddy Sam Campos ( the creator of Pineapple Man & Dragon Fly! ).
'
I wanna get Abbas to dress up like Nick Fury.

He can maybe tip the valet guys to let us park the Bat-tiki-mobile out front the hotel.

Should be easy - Abbas in a long black coat, dark clothes, with an eye patch.
...and I think I might dress up like the Riddler ( the Jim Carey version, course )

…but sort-of the tiki-fied version; with a green ALOHA shirt, and LEI, and like dat.
I got tickets for some of my starving big island artist friends, and my apprentice...

Suede; He's NEVER been to a Comic-con, or a Sci-Fi con!
I'm not even sure he's been off island much yet! He's really excited!
It's fun to see kids get excited about the same stuff you got excited about when you were a kid.

Laters tiki tribe!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Here's where I am on the newest painting…. the tiki in the middle of the big canvas.
Here is a Mark Ryden just to show you that every idea has been done before - this is his little kid in the middle of a big canvas:

And here is a pencil sketch of some thought s about this painting… like it might have flaming skulls floating around it's head or ghostly shark 'aumakua swimming around it's feet. (like the Shark-Tiki Tiki-Mug)

Here is where the Tiki is at right now.

Since he is woody color and warm, the back ground will most likely be cool blue/green or purple /Grey in tone so he pops.

Took a "Sunset Brake"

Now back to work slapping' paint and makin' da' Tiki-Art!

Some one pointed out this tiki looked like one of the tikis in "Forbidden Island", well this basic design was also used in "Hawaii-Ween".

Well thanks for watching the paint dry - more laters….only days away till the big show in LA at La Luz de Jesus Gallery! (OMGAWD!)
So I better get back to it!
