Big Mahalo Kenny!
You are my inspiration, man. this post is for YOU!
On my next piece, it was one I wanted to do for a long time. It all started in Ken Ruzic's Art Studio!
I was hanging out admiring his way cool Art Cave when in drops Tom ( Big Toe) Laura. He shows me
A painting he did galled "Fink Dragon".

It's a classic Chinese Dragon done as a "Rat-Fink" Character!
I was in awe! This was a masterpiece of Low-Brow Art!
I was urged to create this Fink-Dragon myself by my own Low-Brow Art Muse. Driven.
I asked Tom if he was OK if I did a Fink Dragon painting - or My version if it.
He being the super cool and generous guy he is said YES.

I did some drawings. This was an idea for a Tiki Mug that got shot down.

This was a design for a figure that I was told was too complex to make.

I did research on Dragons in Hawaiian Mythology. to my surprise there ARE Dragons in Hawaiian Mythology.
Historians are distill scratching their heads over that one, as there are no large lizards indigenous to the islands.
There little lizards here, that were brought in on cargo and such. Geckos.
Still Hawaiian mythology talks about beautiful women who could transform into huge lizards with magical powers called "Mo'o".

I tried to think what a "Hawaiian Dragon" would look like.
I became more intrigued. There is even a tale about All the Dragons from all the islands getting into a battle with no less then
Madam Pele the Volcano Goddess! A grand epic adventure, indeed.

I was doing some art for an up coming art show and needed a subject for a "News Print" painting.
I revisited the Fink-Dragon.

I showed Tom (BigToe) Laura my rough sketch. He thought it was great and gave me the OK to proceed. ( what a great guy)

Got it down on the News Print…

then some ideas for color…

Worked on it night and day like all good obsessive artists…

and finally got the thing done.

"Fink Dragon vs Souvenir TIKI"
This News Print Painting will be framed floating between two plates of plexy-glass, and shown at La Luz De Jesus July 1st, 2016.
My Agent liked it so much he had it made into a high end printed Beach Towel.

Fink Dragon Lives again!
