You've made Trader Joes the coolest place to hang out. We need this in Elk Grove, CA. Wendy

Thanks so much Wendy and TikiAno!
4WDtiki - It's funny because whenever other artists ask me about chalk/pastel techniques, I give 'em a couple pointers but I always finish by saying, "I freakin' love what I do, and I hope that comes out in my work." So, thanks for saying so!

Aloha all! Finally have some new stuff to post! Maori n' Moai Madness
Hand drawn/inked. Colored in Photoshop




This guy is for the "Bakery Beach" bread section from an earlier post. I used some Maori designs in that previous sign so I wanted this guy to reflect some Maori influence. I gave him a Maori style face with some wavy, wooden surfer hair.


This next guy is for the juice section.
I've been wanting to include more Moai in the store, and when I saw this pic:




I immediately flashed back on those old beer helmets:





...and voila!



Hope you dig 'em - had fun doing them.
Thanks for lookin'!
