i started this on my Art thread,but decided,in order to keep them all together.....
to post them on one thread! I'll be updating these from time to time as i scan them all...I'm gonna be posting the Tiki Sci-Fi ones first,then the Tiki ones,then the Hawaiiana ones after that.....There's hundreds of these pages that I've compiled over the years,and instead of hoarding them,i thought i'd share them with the Ohana! hope this inspires y'all!
Here's what i had written previously about these....the intro-so to speak...
Enjoy!
From 89 to around 2002 i worked in the surf industry
designing and directing tees,wovens,boardshorts,ads,knits,etc ad naseum...
so i started developing an image file....
well, this got to be quite messy so i
decided to start making "vibe sheets" where i'd take a subject and just paste
clipping on a page.....
i'd do it for Tikis/typefaces/comic book ads/retro logos....etc
After accumulating a 3 foot tall pile of them,I got bored and began to cross genres, and attempted to make them more collage-like and as separate art pieces in themselves....
These are from a series of about 30-40 i did cross-breeding
Tiki art and ephemera and Science Fiction pulps/comics/Astronomy books/old Space Travel stuff...
last year i posted some of my woven shirt
and boardshort prints for Hawaiian Island Creations....
one of them was a Tiki Sci-Fi theme....
that print was inspired by these sheets....
Well, i blab....so here's the first batch!







Please don't ask me where i got this stuff from!
I've been clipping stuff since1989 and getting source material from
old book stores/garage sales/thrift stores/friends/etc......
try to recall cutting out a picture almost 20 years ago...i dare ya!
Oh well....hope you enjoy these! I'll post more as i scan em!

I now know what it looks like in LLT's brain

It reminds me of art like flounders and thorsten's, where there is an eclectic mix of images thrown together.

One of the things Im investigating playing with is decoupage images on vintage items. Like a vintage steel cooler covered in Hawaiiana images

I tell you LLT has files on everything and everyone...he's better than the internet or the library of congress! Just smells a little worse...but once you get over that it's all good!

Hewey!
so, you think you now know what the inside of my brain looks like?
You've just been given a thin slice of grey matter,there's so much more
to be revealed as i post more and more!
Flounder and Thor just blow me away because they CAN paint this stuff!
someday....if i practice every available moment...i may be able to create something
just a fraction of perfect as those two chaps do!!!
Decoupaging a vintage steel cooler covered in Hawaiiana images sounds killer!
Just be sure and coat the whole thing with a spray sealant or varnish as the
deco glue doesn't take a beatin too well! I'll stick with Spray mount and tape
for these! Less messy!
VampiressRN-thanks sweetie! I find the best part of these is that they merely have to be cut out and composed,instead of being drawn....I get some real good colorways and compositions this way!
Babs-you're just as nuts,so quit trying to divert the crowd...
BigToe-hard choice...giclees are way expensive,so i guess a manila folder sent to the FBI would be the more fiscal idea....I was thinking they'd be great backgrounds for ransom notes!
clysdalle-I got a BIG file on YOU,man! I'm just biding my time....and I do believe the Library of Congress has a mustier odor....
Freddie! I think that's why we get along so well,twisted minds seem to search out other twisted minds! Glad you dig these collages!
Man! I am so glad you kids like these! Dusting them off and bringing them out to share sure beats having em up on a shelf in a manila folder!
Here's some more for ya!





that's all til next time! Mahalos for visiting AND enjoying these!
Hope this inspires some great work outta y'all!

Hey Ken- Thanks for all of the inspiration here! I thought I had a bunch of clippings and inspirational stuff, but these few scans here show that you must have a ton! When I was 6 or 7, I was cutting out political cartoons of Nixon and movie ads from the movie section of the newspaper - I wish I had held onto that stuff now for inspiration... It looks like I can just visit a Ken Ruzic thread and that's just as well.

Ravers! Thank you! Glad my little misfits can give the Ohana a spark of creative inspiration!
FreddieBallz! where you been man? I see you've been kicking out the wee carvings again! Stoked! and that poor bastard about to get eaten by the Cannibal! Classic! Tried to call ya a few days back! Gimme a holler clown!
Sam-you have full access to ANY of my files Sir! If they can coax a few hundred more PERFECT paintings out of your brush-slingin mind,then i will feel like I've helped a true Master! My files are the result of just saving stuff in marked folders and cutting and spray-mounting them to sheets every once in a while! Rad that you somehow "knew" a bit about your calling and started at such an early age! It's never too late to start a new reference library up! and thank YOU for all of YOUR inspiration!
Could only scan in four today,but here they are! Enjoy!


Hai Karate! in Outer Space!

Hey these are great. Thanks for posting.

Some of them would look great with film titles on....



I'm sure Trader Jim has a copy of this film somewhere!
