Pat's work in person was awesome too. His velvets looked too well-developed to be early work, the airbrushed stuff was very slick, the Green Tiki Poster had brushwork that seriously reminded me of the Old Masters paintings I like to stare at at museums. He also had excellent and unique frames a buddy of his did.

Pat, you should redo the fuzzy shot of the chasing natives on the page before this one so people can appreciate your brushwork, especially for such a tiny area (3x4 inches?).

Pat,

Your fine detail on "Night of the Green Tiki" is absolutely amazing! It really was wonderful to see this painting up close and personal. And the movement you capture in your velvets is tremendous - I really was mesmerized by the S curve of the wahine.

Now, you just need to contact the "Lost Skeleton of Cadavra" director and make "Green Tiki" into a movie!!

- Lorie Hamel

The Green Tiki is slick. The Happy Cannibals is a whole other vibe and great as well. I love the Green Tiki.

Wow Pat, love the vintage horror-esque movie poster look. You do have a great sense of style ... love your work.

well hello good ohana!

i've been too busy for too long- working on my tattoo/art studio ELECTRIC TIKI. tough timing and low budgets have made for a long winter and spring, but things are coming around. i'll create a thread for the shop so anyone interested can check it out- the website's hardly up, but keep an eye on it for updates.
www.electrictiki.net it's also at www.myspace.com/electrictikiart which also is in need of updates.

well, i haven't done much in the way of tiki art over the past year- these four paintings i did at the end of the winter. i have 2 more sketched and need to start painting them now if they're ro be ready for hukilau- if i can still get a space/booth. i'v put everything off for too long and am waiting to see what the situation is for that. just sent BK an email yesterday, if he's still running the vendor show. i'm such a procrastinator- very busy yes, but still about 10% lazy. or is it wiped out? maybe i should go with that.

well, here's some pics to start things off- see if i can't get back on this beast and ride a bit before falling off again.

these four are each 5x7 acrylic inks and paints.




those are in cronological order, the first with my intentions of producing some one-day pieces. each progressed in technique and time. oh well. so much for quickies. here's the few pre-shots i took.



here's the two new ones-need to get them started quick! it's the hardest part for me. just a matter of cleaning off the drawing table here at work and setting up -then just throw some paint down; the rest just falls into place. i'm so lazy.


mahalo all for looking! now for the carving thread.
