I feel very fortunate to have made friends with Ken. His work is unbelievable! If you haven't seen his tiki concepts, then you are surely missing an important evolution in tiki style! Keep up the great work Ken!

That must have started out as a non-glazed mug? The detail is so much more crisp. The other characters look camouflage next to Ken's.

Hi kids!
Peeked my head in here to see what all the hullaballoo was... (plus when somethin's got your name on it-you get curious-and a lil' scared at the same time!!!!old enemies/girlfriends/stalkers-that kind of stuff...) and then was disappointed....I already saw that mug!
Thanks you all for lovin it,and thank you Soccertiki for providing the means to bring this project to life! I won't thank you for all the beatings and whippings, but after reading of Benvenuto Cellini's trouble with patrons (jail-threats of excommunication-attempted murder) I feel very lucky to have escaped fates far worse! As for the process, I started with a bisque original (just like the one we worked on for the DVA gallery show last year) Did the studies/colorways-which was the worse part of it (For such a big macho guy-he sure is very Martha Stewart-like when it comes to colors!)/then I painted it up with gouache(it soaks in just enough and retains the colors pretty close) then sealed it a few times inside and out with a satin glaze (that's half matte/half gloss)/after that I added some raised areas with puff paint and after drying sealed those a couple of times -and that's how it gots done! Thanks again Chris, and all of you envious mug collectors!
ps: I forgot! Fellow artists! He also is very professional and prompt with his payments!!!
(He made me say that!)

You gotta kiss up to Ken and wait until he has the time! **Just kidding!*** You just gotta be in the right place, at the right time! And beg a little!

Really nice mug. Thanks for sharing the process. I'm always curious as to how things are actually done. Looking forward to seeing more.
