The came my animation degree final piece "The Kong Tiki Affair"

Quote:


Two months ago i finally finished my Animation Degree, after a whopping ten years (but i did drop out for five years and had to resit and things), but all's well that ends well because i finished up with a second class degree with upper honors and this film.

my movie is a pilot episode for my characters "The Amazing Zepplin bros." who are ex-spokes characters for a sweety company who are now working as detectives.

the main plot device is the treasures of skull island..

this is my design for a KING KONG style tiki..

the mummified remains of the priests of Kong..

the Kong Tiki bar exterior..

..and a shot of inside..

..and its backyard BBQ area come ritual killing area...

..and the Zepplin Bros. drinking in the ambiance and exotic drinks.





You can watch the whole thing now on You Tube, its been there for years gathering dust..

Then more castings..



My "Wee Drunkin' Tiki" for the London Luau 2006. If anybody knows who bought this please tell me, it would be nice where he ended up.



another casting that didn't turn out too well, I think I gave this one to Tiki Chris.

Keeping with the nautical theme I next came up with this picture, "Captain Hold Fast and his Steam Tiki Submarine"...



..I think that was the world first glimpse of the very popular Captain Hold Fast.

Thanks to the fine taste of the Judges the good Captain was commissioned..



and now for the first time rare pictures his original flat bottom..



..but we soon got that sorted.



The Captain first appeared in a lovely blue glaze, then came the day for a colour change so he went purple but he was very nearly green.

But my major effort that year was the creation of..



"The Wee Drunkin' Headhunter" (now owned by Anji of CheekyTiki)



"The Wee Drunkin' Missionary" (also in the CheekyTiki collection)



"The Wee Drunkin' Cannibal" (which eventual found a home with Los Furias Tiki)



and "Screw'd, Stew'd & Tattoo'd", two versions of this exists, one owned by Trader Jim of Pocketiki fame and the other by my brother.

When I stayed with my brother before I moved here to Thailand, I found his one broken in a bag. It had been damaged by removal men during a move and he didn't have the heart to tell me it had been broken. So I fixed it up and now it hangs proudly in his livingroom.

I next picked up the brush again, after a lapse of ten years and tried my hand at painting...



I was so upset that my digital skills didn't translate into painting that I abandoned this canvas and didn't try again for 8 months.



a better attempt but still a bit rusty.



Then finally a half decent sketch what later became this piece..



To Murder a Menehune

This work has been exhibited at Puttiki in Hastings and Tiki Today in Scunthorpe.

Then I painted this one.



Next I tried to marry my digital skills with painting by doing all the prep-sketches on the computer and then transferring them to the canvas and hand painting the result.



The Call of Cthul-HULA

This painting now resides in the Tikiracers Devils Reef Bar.

Cheers!

It was through your encouragement I picked up the brush again. Hopefully I'll have this page updated quite soon, thanks to the long teaching holidays here in Thailand.
