I've been looking through some of these posts and the art is amazing! I am a drawer/ painter and I am inspired to do some tiki pieces now. I'll post photos as i make progress. here is a tiki pumpkin I carved last Halloween as a teaser and some vaguely tiki/tropical art.

Tiki pumpkin inspired by a pizz painting.



Some early papier mache stage sets I did with my old band the Hairy Buzzard Gizzards.



And a merman painting.


My friend Blindy the Pirate who turned me onto this site drew me a sketch on a bar napkin and i'm working on a painting based on it i'll post my progress here.

I really like the merman painting, great color and architecture - are you a fan of Roger Dean, like I am?

Welcome to Tiki Central, by the way.

I love Roger Dean's art, but I don't like Yes. Yacek Yerka influenced the architecture a lot.

You should post the napkin, because I don't remember what it looks like.

Concieved on a bar napkin, this was the seed for the project


So here are the sketches




I'm leaning toward the second one. here is the sketch on canvas, i haven't put paint to it yet, so if you have any suggestions i'd love to hear them.
