Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Here is the final an 3rd mug in the "Body Glove 60th Anniversary / Surf-Sea-Creature film tiki mug set, brought to you y the combination of Tiki-Shark Art, Tiki Farm and Body Glove.


Sea Creature mug design.

Body Glove Sea Creature Tiki Mug designs - other views.
I really went all out and tried to make this set something special

Here is a computer mock up step showing more of what the mag will look like.
I'm very happy with the amazing work Tiki Farm is doing. This mug set should be quite something!

We are planning a big Body Glove Sea Creature ("the Kreature in Kona") tiki mug release party this Oct 24th & 25th here in Kailua-Kona, to take place with Body Glove clebs, art prints, event posters, Tee shits, love music, and the SEA CREATURE HIMSELF! It's take place at the Royal Kona Resort & the Wyland Kona Ocean Front Gallery for our 2nd annual "Hawaii-Ween" event!For more info on this event go to Tiki-Events on the Tiki Central Web Site, scroll to the bottom for newest up dates.

Aloha tiki Tribe!

Here's what my tiki art looks like hanging in my local gallery... really one of the very few galleies I let carry my work year round. It's here in the small town where I live on the Big Island. The owner and staff didn't know anything about "Tiki-Art" or Pop-Surrealism, or Low Brow. But they learned, and really got behind my work and supported me. Great folks. I love having all the space in the front window they have given me. I'm very honored, really. And it's a hoot watching tourists react to my.. strange, and very TIKI, and very NOT mainstream art in a gallery where you'd never expect to find that. and I think that if you're on vacation and you travel thousands of miles to the Big Island, you should find art here that you can't find in Vegas, or Florida, or a dozen other places... you know? I wanted it to be like the old days when you had to travel all that way to find local artist. Sure, I still sell aq lot on line, but it's cool to have a physical location that really show cases my work in such a out of the way place.

Aloha Tiki Tribe~
The full house (the full haunted house?) all four monsters plus "Hawaii-Ween" on skate decks, ready to be mounted on da' wall of some art patron's tiki room.

"Our walls just got 5 times cooler! Please tell Abbas thank you for the killer deal on all 5 skate decks. Sending hardware to mount them was an added bonus. I can't wait to get these on the wall. Thanks again."
Thank you'!
ALOHA BP~

Brad, I love your work! You've been a big influence on me as a beginning artist. Just got some of your wood block prints and they are amazing!!!! Pre-ordered the mugs and we can't wait!!!! I saw you post some pics of the body glove painting as a woodblock print, will those be for sale?
Thanks! Gus and Steff

An art parton, and friend, put together this very swank music montage of my work and my favorite song by his metal band LEFTHEAD called "edwin". ( I was thinking maybe "Tiki" by Martin Denny, but this is interesting too!) Quite a strange mix of images - but I like it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djrIvgWn7CY&feature=youtu.be<!-- BBCode Start --><IMG SRC="http://tikiroom.com/img/5514x5203663a.jpg" BORDER="0"><!-- BBCode End -->
OKAY - we had a better idea, and the first version was done rather quickly, so we are makeing a better one! you can find it here: Aloha http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJG9parajk4 — with Kevin Hipp.
