The first of the Body Glove VIPs are on their way to Kailua-Kona Hawaii!

BODY GLOVE owners Billy Meistrell and Jenna Meistrell flying to HAWAII!

Good thing I set up the gift shop yesterday at the Royal Kona!
Check out my window dressing...no too bad...

I was in a bit of a crazy rush...but I got all the Tiki-Mugs facing forwards now!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
The BODY GLOVE VIPS are here! We took them ona tour of the island yesterday.

Got to see da' KING!

The Meistrell family (owners of BG) got on the local radio morning show!

NOW....
Because of demand we are making 60 (yes 60 as in 60th anniversary) smaller Giclee Art prints of the Body Glove Sea-Creature!
To go with the MUGS!
2-D and 3-D! (after this happened with the Diga Diga Doo mugs I HAD to make it happen again somehow!)
Smaller sized (8" x11") , so less expensive for those patrons who will spend mucho $ on drinks Thursday night! However, made by the SAME printer that makes my really high end fine art prints. These are archival inks! Will not FADE! Frame them as expensively as you wish, they will not Fade on you 3, 4, or 10, or 50 years from now!

$35 - signed and numbered! And if you r here get them signed by the Body Glove VIPS too!

Here they are in the window... next to the larger 20" x 16" for $150.00. Check out the colors are all perfect...good darned printing! (me so happy as an artist to see that!)
IF you cannot be in KONA HAWAII... you may be able to snag them from the gallery - at
jills@wylandbigisland.com
Or from
www.mahalotiki.com.

ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
This morning the BODY GLOVE SEA-CREATURE was on the local Big Island Radio morning show on LAVA 105 with Danny Jesser!

Crazy fun !

He did pretty good ...for a sea-monster.

Since at Christmas you sit in Santa's lap, I figured at Halloween you sit in the Creature's lap!

It's warm here, so the Creature worn some nice Body Glove jams instead of his scaled green slimy legs.
This was all to let folks know about the big event on Thursday and Friday...

Hard to remember this was all started by a TIKI-MUG release party!

The Body Glove 60 Anniversary / Sea-Creature Mug set is already selling out... we had to run to get more boxes of CREATURE mugs to the Royal Kona REsort gift shop today!

The gift shop is decked out in a strange Halloween/ Body Glove / Sea-Creature set up.... guess it really is the "Hawaii-Ween" I was dreaming up last year. But lots bigger now!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Wow!
What an amazing 2-day party.
It started as a Tiki-Art painting of the Body Glove Sea-Creature.
Then became a set of Tiki Mugs based on that painting.
Then became a Tiki-Mug Release party.
Then became a Body Glove 60th Year Anniversary Event.
Then became a even bigger thing...the Big Island gave back as much as we gave ...and more.
Now it is a Official State proclamation that October 24th is "BODY GLOVE DAY" in the State of Hawaii!

I cannot even begin to explain it all just go here and read...

Here's what made all that year of crazy work worth while... "the Official Proclamation" stating that October 24th is now, and forever, "BODY GLOVE DAY" in the State of Hawaii. Big Mahalo to my Art Agent & Partner Abbas Hassan for making this happen... & to The Meistrell Family, Body Glove, Tiki Farm, The Royal Kona Resort, The Wyland Hawaii Kona Gallery, Mayor Billy Kenoi, the Governor of Hawaii, Mahalo Tiki, Henry Kapono, L.T. Smooth, Body Glove Hawaii & everyone who helped... Mahalo Nui Loa! ...and ALOHA! — in Kailua-Kona.

Body Glove Owner Bill Meistrell & my Art Agent Abbas Hassan holding the State Proclaimation.

Thank you so much.
It was a little crazy.
I must admit I might have had a few panic attacks as it kept getting bigger and bigger!
It was a wonderful crazy surprise when the State of Hawaii turned around and GAVE BACK to us for all our hard work.
Wow!

It was a little Tiki-Mug party that kept growing bigger and bigger like a giant Kaiju monster rising outa' the Pacific Ocean!

Check out this famous (or sometimes infamous local Blogger from the Big Island who covered the event- (Damon Tucker)
