I used to do alot of freelance illustration in my twenties until I landed a directorial gig working VERY closely with a female Hawaiian editor.

Most of my work from that time was inspired by her passion for native issues ranging from Hawaiian autonomy to incarcerated Navajos being denied religious sacrament while Caucasians prisoners could gobble all the Body of Christ they wanted until their bellies were full to busting with the figurative flesh of the white God... well you get the idea.

This was before the Paradigm shifted to computer design so I did everything by hand. (I think they have a trained monkey doing my job now, who pushes a button to produce effortess but souless art in a fraction of the time and they work for bananas.)

My prefered medium for covers and editorial illustration was acrylic. I recently openned a box and found some old stuff I'll post here shortly.

Yipe! Warts and all...

They look so sloppy now after twelve years. Thank goodness the black and whites were published at about 50% of this size.

As I recall, this image accompanied an article about native islanders vs US aided Japanese conglomerates, shitting on native kapu to build more fucking golf courses. A different version, long lost, wrapped the explosive tikis in an american flag touricate.(B&W acrylic on canvasboard)



...an editorial illustration that accompanied an interview with Joe Stephenson, a Jamaican tropical muralist living in the desert. I thought the publishers were insane for insisting upon my work instead of Joe's for a frickin' article about Joe, so i tried to allude to his method and influence without imitating his style.
Joe dug it. (B&W acrylic on canvasboard)



Natives in prison face caucasion indifferance to all they hold sacred. Often discouraged from non christian communal worship and denied traditional religious sacraments, Cochiti, Zuni, Navajo and Mescalero Apache faced further humiliation from white guards cutting their hair a symbol of native pride. (B&W acrylic on canvasboard)



The cover of a desert music mag: when mopey grunge was king and every two horse town was convinced they were gonna be the next Seattle! LOL! Imagine a masthead above and tons of stupid band names on the left and right of the dead pinon tree. (B&W acrylic on canvasboard)



"One does want a hint of color."

Anybody remember Lyle Alzado? It's hard to remember a time when steroids were regarded as harmless, but when one of the NFL's biggest badasses shriveled down to a drooling skeleton in just a few months, every juicing jock took notice. (color acrylic on canvasboard)



Some other sports thing... God it's ugly, but I still like the rhino's right glove. (color acrylic on canvasboard)



Plenty more of this stuff but none of it even remotely tiki...
