I have been doing some castings using plasticine, vinyl molding compound and plaster..



My "Wee Drunkin' Tiki" which i had in the London Luau Artshow..



I found a lovely piece of fake wood which i put a tiki on, then i covered it in the boiling vinyl, which melted the plastic and i was left with this rather deformed tiki casting..



and a bunch of Tiki's I had drawn in my sketchbook finally worked up into a full sized image.
Its great once you get out of the midwinter funk.

He hasn't sailed around Cape Horn obviously, just the Atlantic ocean.

So apart from knocking up a bunch of tiki mug designs for the TikiFarm competition, I've just spent the last couple of days creating this piece, "Captain Hold-Fast and his Steam Submarine".

Nice job yet again matey! The rusty patched up subship U-14 is Classic! And the HOLD FAST on the green bloke's knuckles are spot-on!Love your feeble genius brain and all the ideas pouring out of it! Thanks so much for letting us get peeks at some of this great work! you got a website? Hope so! keep up the Excellent stuff! Do you always draw the blackline then color it in with computer? I say that because You NEED to be doing some big canvases with these guys on them! Bravo! thanks for making me grin like an art-infused idiot!

Well little lost tiki & surf-n-turf, what I do is doodle some ideas in my sketchbook, then when i have the concept, I draw the various components of the piece. On the tiki sub I drew the coning tower, the tiki man, and the various waves separately, then I scan them and take them to photoshop.
I then arrange them, resize, crop and remove any parts of the drawings i don't like. On the sub I grabbed lots of images of rust, cut them up and layered them to provide the texture. Finally I colour the image, adding shading, shadows and generally tidy up the image.

I'm planning on getting these images giclee printed on canvas as soon as I can find a cheap printer (or someone who'll do it trade price through my work)I think they'll look nice all printed up with nice frames.

Did that Submarine say "U-14" on it?.....meaning it's part of the Kriegsmarine? oh wow. The germans drafted Tikis now?? wow.

I was going to have a more stormy look to the picture because when i think about a submarine running on the surface, I think of Das Boot and them running the straits of Gilbralta in a storm. So I just added U-14 because 14 is my lucky number and I thought all subs have the preface U (although if my little brother the submariner heard that he'd probably give me hell).

Funnily I checked U14 and it did reconnaissance of Scapa Flow and Orkneys in September 1939, and I grew up on the shores of Scapa Flow.
