Looking good Dirk. Are those pen and ink with paint?

Rory tells me you are vending at Tiki Caliente in May, true?
He also tells me you want to have a former spaghetti western star bartend in your room?
As a fan of the spaghetti western I'm really curious who it might be. If it's a secret I understand.

Wow, Thanks Doug!!
Your input is truly appreciated. You are one hell of an amazing artist!! I totally dig your stuff. Yup I will be vending at the show in May (rum drink in hand and straw hat).

A very dear friend will be bartending and I will let it out when I get all my ducks in a row. Its my very first appearance on the tiki scene and I am really looking forward to it.

Actually they are pencil then pen & ink. Haven't ventured into guache painting techniques yet. I am still refining my process. I hope the results look good.

Mahalo,
Dirk

Good luck to you in the Springs. Maybe this show will start a new tradition and bring in new blood to true tiki style.

Thanks Dirk! I won't be making it to Palm Springs although I wish I could. I have about 3 different circumstances holding me back at that time! Maybe next time...
