Aloha Tiki Tribe!
This is a little playing around in Photo-shop. Using "patina" and "scratch" filters from DC comics (same they use to make comic cover art look vintage - I got them from LLT) I made "Token Tiki on a Sincere Blue Back-Ground" look "antique".

"Token Tiki on a Sincere-Blue Back-Ground" (antique version).
If anyone likes this, please contact info @tikishark.com and ask for Art Prints of it,
not sure if I'll make them yet, but I might if I get requests.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Had a dream. In the dream had a great idea for a painting. A painting about the "Night Marchers" - which I've wanted to paint them for a long time, but I could never get a good visual idea of how to paint them. Then, I had this really strange and vivid dream.
OK!
First step is work up some great "Night Marcher" Tiki design Ideas.

Night Tiki 01
Pencil on paper
Study for a painting.

Aloha Tiki-Tribe!
Sometimes art hopes out into the world and has adventures of it's own with it's new owners. "The Tourist" certainly did. It ended up torn into pieces, with a note, in a sac,k on someone's door step.

It was given back to me as the doorstep didn't belong to the person who purchased "The Tourist". The note read "Don't sod me any favors". Seems a broken heart was involved somehow. The pieces ended up with me. I took them to my framer. She thought it was "...even more beautiful!"

It's now called "Vacation Gone Wrong."
Framed in a Heavy Bamboo Box-Frame with black velvet backing. Gives it a swanky look.

HA! Oops! My spell check keeps changing my words on me! No no, you are correct it was "Don't do me any favors." on the mysterious note…

Dragon Wrapped Tiki!
Here's a drawing that will make a fine painting one day I hope.
It's an idea that has been lurking in my mind since I saw Big Toes' painting "Fink-Dragon" so many years ago.
