Sophista-tiki: Thanks. Spring has sprung all right. Let's hope the creativity continues to build.
Sam: Thanks. The lettering in your paintings is amazing
Tiki Shark: Thanks. They all thought me mad, but I showed them! I showed them all! Bwha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!
*ahem* Sorry about that.

Here is a new painting fresh off the ol' easel entitled: "Tiki Beat A Go Go"
It is acrylic on a 12"x12" corner canvas.

I entered this, the frame and one of my retro-modern abstracts in a local competition.
They were all turned down cold. No tiki love in Michigan. Oh well . . .

Anyhoo, this piece is available as a print from Imagekind.com (http://anthonycarpenter.imagekind.com/Illustrationville)
They also do custom framing.

Super wow.

My wife and I couldn't stop looking at "Tiki Beat A Go Go" - it's just amazing. The simplicity of the brushwork and colors and (I never thought I'd say this) the texture of the acrylics make me want to touch it. This is easily amongst the best Tiki work I've ever seen. Everything about it is perfect.

What a fun painting! Love the motion in it.

Ahh Michiganders - what do they know!(disclaimer - I'm from MI too- there are a lot that don't "get it"!)

Keep up the good work!

Tiki Shark: Thanks! They like to play it safe around here.
Sophista-tiki, jpmartdog, Sneakytiki, Tabu: Thanks!
Robb Hamel: You made my day, sir!
octopussy: Thanks! We'll have to set these mitten dwellers straight!

And now, here's something new for your viewing pleasure.
It's an 'in-progress' tonal pencil commission called "Tiki Nouveau".

First, I sent this sketch for client approval.



Next, I sketched the composition onto 11"x14" smooth-finish bristol. Looking it over, I discovered that the figure wasn't nearly nouveau enough. Begrudgingly, I erased her and started anew. Consulting a book on Alphonse Mucha (in order to refresh my lapsed nouveau knowledge), I quickly saw the error of my ways.
Brimming with newfound insight, I added extra design elements, made the figure more curvaceous and gave her a more elaborate hairstyle and raiment.

"Ah", I thought, leaning back in my chair, "Now we're getting somewhere":



Detail:



Next step: Adding the tones!

GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!
A++++++++++++++!!!
Go to the head of the class.

Love your art---damn you!

Don't make it look so easy you bastard. Show a picture of a couple of trash cans overflowing with sketches that didn't work or something! Or at least lie in your post, and say it took all week just to get one decent drawing that you were semi-happy with.

GROG starting to hate you as much as GROG hate Brad (Tikishark).

Tiki Nouveau!
it's as if Mucha took the example from Gaugain and
move to Polynesia! Very nice!
This one's gonna be a Beauty!

babalu, little lost tiki: Thanks!
GROG: Don't worry, the bad stuff exists, believe me. More than I care to think about.
Robb: Ah, but Tiki Nouveau on velvet! That's a whole 'nother kettle of fishies.

The tonal work begins:
