Aloha kÔkou !!

Well everybody I felt it was about time I got off my butt and became an active part of the Tiki Central Community. Being an artist with little acclaim I felt it was time I share my work with all of you. I am really looking forward to the exchange of ideas and comments. I primarily work in pen & ink but have been branching out into acrylic on canvas, digital media, carving, and any media that I can "Tikify".

This site has meant so much to me in the past years. Here is one of my first of many posts.

Mahalo nui loa

Thanks very much. I am scanning more of my work as we speak and hope to get some photos of my canvases up here in a few days.

And here is my Witch Doctor. He seems to be a recurring character in other works as you will come to see in later posts.

Aloha Dirk - Kimo!

Very nice work there! Yes, try as many mediums as you can.. the more you do, the better you get. You obviously have artistic talent. I'd love to see what you'd come up with in acrylic. What medium do I work in? No medium - I go from one extreme to the other! I'm one of those that gets bored with doing the same thing all the time. I'll paint for a while, then go on to sculpting, then I'll build something, then draw - and on and on. It's always fun though. For paint, I've been in love with cel vinyl paints for years now. They were developed for the animation industry, but they are a great all around waterbased paint. I get them from
http://www.cartooncolour.com Once in a while I'll see them at an art store.. anyway they are my favorite paint. They flow really good, they stick to anything, the color is very opaque and they are excellent quality - they don't fade over time. Another thing I have a lot of fun with is that Sculpey II stuff. And paper mache'... and wood carving... and ceramic clay... it's always something!

Hey, I love that witch doctor!
Happy painting and drawing!
Paul

Aloha Cuzins,

I am trying to get more of my worked scanned but seems like I can only get a few done at a time. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I love sharing them with you all.

Aloha Cuzins,

Aloha Folks,

Yes my Vamp I will be doing some of the 8x10 and 11x17 prints of these and about 40 others in the next few weeks. I am busy gearing up for my very first art show in late september here in Plam Springs. I will be sending out an open invite to all of my fellow Tiki Centralites as soon as I get closer to the date.

I am also finising up a large body of acrylic on canvas, and my new greeting cards as well. All coming available in the next few weeks.

Mahalo
