Thanks for the suggestions.

Just today I bought some plywood [laminate board]. Plan to try a couple of options, one where I leave the wood finish and another where I'll sand and gesso.

I'll keep you posted on the results.

Your paintings are excellent. It's fascinating to see the process from start to finish.
My favorite is the hook. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks again for the support and great replys.

Board update - did buy some plywood. Seemed fine in a big sheet, but when I cut it down and it warped itself stupid. So will have try one of the other suggestions.

Did get this baby finished during a few days off work.


Title "at the marquesas of madness"
This one is a bit specialist - based on the story of "at the mountains of madness" by hp lovecraft. If you know it then you'll get...
One tipbit - a movie version of "mountains of madness" is scheduled to be made by Senior DelToro. So that should be cracking.
This is a 8x10 canvass in ink and acrylic.

Thanks for stopping by.

Tiki Racer your painting skills are leaping forward like an excited shagoth! I love it!

Really cool and moody piece! Del Toro is up to make At The Mountains of Maddness? Wow! Okay, when it comes out here's what we do: I'll go buy tickets for you and me and wait in line, meet you out front of the Archlight theater in Hollywood. (now all we gotta do is travel the thousands of miles tween us to get there!)

I love the new piece. Somehow I really connect with it, but don't know why. Serously cool.

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Not posted in awhile some here's a quick photo update...


Adding some foliage to the mix


a new painting for the cover of the new mahiki menu


painted this for the cover of my fictional devil reef bar project




These 2 are part of my faces of tiki work. Experimenting in lighting and form.


Here's something a little more loose and abstract. Liked doing this painting, will do more in this style.

Now for something different.
I use a bright orange pelicase to carry samples around, so thought I'd add to tikiracer to it.



Thanks for stopping by.

I like 'em - excellent color. And I really dig the vector graphics feel of the Pelican case.

Looks cool but what is it? (I mean what is that media? Here in the States, vinyl is usually a plastic coated cloth used for upholstery.)

I am pretty sure this is a Munny doll. If you google "Munny" you will see that there is a whole community of artists that use this as their medium.

I am not sure if they are marketed the same over there but I assume so.

Thanks for the feedback.

Maddog - you're right this actual figure isn't made out of vinyl, but its one of the terms used for collectable artist toys, like Munny. This one is a mighty mugg, which I based coated, painted in acrylic and then inked on the tattoos.
