Aloha Tiki Tribe!
An art patron from down under has purchased a set of Monsters on vacation in Hawaii post cards, I'm gonna send a double set in case any get damaged on such a long postal trip...

Also, I got up to my ears in too much work and kinda got behind on my shipping, so this art patron has waited so patiently he deserves something extra... (I'm gonna put some more cool tiki-swag in his package too).
You looking for a set of Monsters in Hawaii POST CARDS?
Message me - I take pay Pal, they are $5 to the Mainland, and a bit more for S&H overseas. (Sorry only the patrons who's orders I screw up get extra free tiki-swag!)
Big Aloha!
BP~

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
I picked up the custom sized canvas that will be the center piece of my 2014 summer art show at La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles

Colette's Custom Framing has saved my butt so many times on rush jobs .... she is awesome! A great frame place that is run with Lots of ALOHA!

I also grabbed some gallery wrapped giclees

I'm excited about this canvas - my agent already is in discussions with an art patron on it's purchase... it'd be interesting to know what actually is going to go ON IT! (hey, I've said my art agent/partner Abbas, has really been a big help in getting my "gallery" art career going -, but wow - he's really becoming awesome at this sort of thing. He started from a place where he said "I know nothing about art, I don't want to be an art agent." Now, he seems to know more about the art business than some curators and gallery owners. He's the guy behind putting together the big Body Glove tiki-mug release party for Body Glove/the Wyland Kona Ocean Front gallery this October. After listening to him, I understand so much more about how the whole art world and business world , and how they work hand in hand. A gallery is a store it's not a museum. I know, of course, it would be nice to have the two worlds be separate,- you know - art for art's sake, -well... in a perfect world... but in the real world, they are very very tied together.
I am actually starting to think that the business deals I see Abbas make are really PART of the whole Art experience I am putting out into the pop culture. I mean, if you are going to purchase an original "Low-Brow" art painting, shouldn't you get to make the "deal" with a tall, swanky dressed guy in dark glasses, oozing personality, driving an exotic sports car, with some kinda of gold tiki hanging around his neck?)

Hey I guess I don't say it enough - Big Mahalo Abbas! You Totally RAWK!

ANYWAYS, The BEST thing about working with Colette's Custom Framing is the smooches.
Here is a list of all art prints for sale.

That is AWESOME! When I worked with Earl Washington on making those Hand carved Woodblock prints, we split the run. I got all the odd numbers and he got all the even numbers. Then fate took Earl off before we could finish our planned series of 13"Tiki Noir" prints. Only 3 of the series were made. I've run out of mine... and these are going for insanely cheap price! You have to see them in person to really see Earl's amazing work. He is the last great hand carved wood block printer... and health reasons have stopped him from making any more. Get these while you can.

Those are great prints.

I have a few different tropical prints like the one below that he signed "E.M. Washington 1939." Can you tell us anything about Washington or those works? For example, these were marketed as his grandfather's work, but I'm pretty sure they're not actually that old.

Well, all I will say is Earl is one colorful character. He was also one of the most dedicated artists I ever met. I was amazed at the great lengths he would go to just to acquire the perfect, aged paper from the right kind of mill, for his beloved prints, he would make one at a time, on his giant iron monstrosity of an antique press that looked like it belonged in a museum instead of a work shop. He is the last great hand carved wood block printer. It was inspirational to hear him talk about his work. However, often with artists so lost in their work, they don't quite work well in our modern rat-race world. He was truly of a different age, he followed his own rules - all to just make his art. …and fate never seemed kind to him. He would do anything to just keep making his beautiful prints, and didn't make choices the average joe would. Wow, he was anything but average. He's an artist in that deep, lost in his own world of creation, kind of way. A REAL DEAL artist, that is so rare. I was very excited to work with such a master of his craft. I think it made him all that much more interesting, and his prints that much more collectible. I think his unique, and maybe infamous, choices to survive with enough $ to just make art, raised his prints to an even higher level of "Art". If you have any of his prints, you know how beautiful they are. Sadly, health reasons have stopped him from hand carving his beloved prints. The world is cruel, we should had rewarded this artist with what ever he needed to work, but the world doesn't do that. Now it has deprived our culture of a true artist. If you can find any of his work - BUY IT!
