Nice drawing Mang.

I can dig it, kinda' like the dogs shootin' billiards but for a tiki pad.

Here's the finished painting, I call it "The Rum Thinker". This will probably be the last painting that I will do in 2008. I can't wait to start the next year. Maybe I'll try to improve on my backgrounds for "more completed" looking paintings in the future. I've never tackled landscapes or architectural subjects.


Acrylic on 11x14 stretched canvas.


His mouth looks weird here, but normal in the actual painting.


A little detail of the Special Reserve Rum bottle.

Thanks to everyone that has offered criticism and encouragement on this thread. It keeps me going.

All right! My first painting of the New Year. A friend of mine wanted a painting as a gift to remember our time here in SoCal. One of the things that we use to do was scuba dive. I've been off of Avalon, Anacapa and Farnsworth Banks, plus numerous other beach dives, so I thought a sunken tiki head would be appropriate.

Here's the Sinky Tiki, 12x24, acrylic on canvas.



Water was a light wash that was wiped away quickly with a paper towel.


I can't wait to get back to FL so I don't have to dive in a 7mm suit.

Maybe not "tiki" per se, but I think these would be right at home in any tiki setting. I don't know why quality skull models are so hard to find and are so expensive. Maybe kids just aren't building models anymore. I made this for a friend, and it's sitting in his tikified garage. Base coat of sprayed OD green with enamel blue and red details, aged teeth, and sprayed flat-coat last. The head band hides a seam of the cranial cavity, a sacrificed shirt.


In the darker lighting, the colors look very subdued.


With the flash, he kind of looks a bit gaudy, but there's always room for gaudy.


I found it rather difficult to maintain symmetry while painting this guy. I probably could have done a better job if I had planned out the design, but since this was my first one, I just winged it. I like how the added beads and feathers look, gives it a nice primitive look.

Very cool but I have to admit I favor the second one. Even the stands are cool!

I agree, I think the second one came out much better, white teeth and all. Thanks for the comment.

This is a 12x24 acrylic painting I call "Me, Myself, and I". I was inspired by a painting that Mr. NoNaMe posted over at Tiki Finds, by Hodad.



Here are a few close-ups of each face. Each face actually consists of two faces looking at each other.

I'm a proud owner of a TikiMango piece! Please excuse the room for it will be eye pleasing soon. Also I want to say Ray aka Mango is good people and probably the coolest person I've met in awhile. Florida will be lucky to have such a dude there.

You are too kind, thanks. I hope the little Cook finds a sweet spot in your home tiki bar.

Hey TikiMango!

The Rum Thinker is great! and I really dig the wash over the underwater tiki, great effect!

Me, Myself and I is my favorite, though... very nice!
