A L O H A T I K I T R I B E !!!

Count down to the art show.... 17 days left!!!!

Wait is it 17 or is it 16? er...I'm not sure. Lack of sleep muct be getting to me. Oh well, "More Red Bull" - gotta focus on what I'm getting ready today.

Thursday, Sept 9th: I'm working my "day job" - a big "Tiki Shark Hawaii" beach towel order for a new client here in Hawaii. Yes, it would be nice if this would have happened AFTER the show, but we need to make deadlines for the factory. And, it's great to break into the tourist market here in Hawaii. That has taken some time.

Of course, this means I'm painting late into the tropical night to get the last painting finished. This last painting may be coming with me on the plane.

The Gallery in Maui just shipped the few originals they had to the venue in Manhattan Beach. I'm packing the originals I have been hording here this week end, and I'll ship them early next week. They should all arrive in Manhattan Beach in plenty time for set up. Am I a bit nervous? YES!


Some Exciting news: Here's a first look at my art on the cover of the "16 page supplement" that's packaged along with issue #21 of the french magazine "KUSTOM". It'll seem like you are buying a new magazine poly-bagged to include a vintage comic! Too fun! Will this actually fool any french people? Not sure, but it's cool to see it. I hear there is a box of them on the way to me. I hope they get here in time so I can take some to the art show.

Here's a link to the mag:

Aloha!

You may want to bring a light jacket.

The weather here has been unseasonably cool with a hearty marine layer (fog) at the beach.

But I am sure the show will be great. I am working to adjust some budding vacation plans to be there.

(Still looking for that checkbook)

I'm ready. We've gotten some severe weather here too. Yesterday, it got real hot, about 87. Then, it got really cold: about 82. Sheesh, freaky!

ALOHA
TIKI
TRIBE!
11 days to the art show.
SHEER PANIC... has eased a bit as almost all the paintings are shipped , in route or have arrived at the Creative Arts Center in Manhattan Beach. I'll be hand delivering two small pieces.

mp - Thanks! I'll raise a mug of voodoo punch to you at the opening. so, you'll, be there in spirit-s!

For you tiki tribe members who don't live in France, here's how the art supplement of issue # 21 of KUSTOM came out...

Here's the mag in it's poly bag.

flip side shows the "supplement" that comes with the mag with "Tales from the Tiki Lounge #1" in all it's faux vintage glory.

1 - I have no idea what it says, because I forgot all the french I took in collage.

2 - showing the "Monsters on Vacation" post cards and "Mister Mai Tai"

3 - "Forbidden Island" spread.

4 - "Diga Diga Doo" and "The Sunken Tiki"

5 - "Faster Than Disaster" spread

6 - "Jungle Witch" and "Tiki Cat"

7 - "The Moon of Manakoora"

The back cover with "Tales from the Tiki Lounge" #2.

I'm very happy with how it came out. It's even better than I hoped - big thanks to Charlie and Alexandre and all the great people at KUSTOM.
I heard it's selling well and that copies are already running low. So, if you happen to be in Europe, and see one, grab it!

Big Aloha!
Brad~

It's Image #1 in the second set of "Monsters on Vacation"

Aloha
