Just finished this painting for an art swap with my fellow Tiki Central members.
08-19-10 Illustration Friday: Star Gazing
Brush pen illustration, scanned and colored in PS!
My submission for this week’s Illustration Friday. The theme is Giant. This is a pencil sketch on some scrap copier paper that was lying around. A giant tiki looming over the island…
Finished my first acrylic painting since…high school I think. I’m pretty happy with it. It’s painted on a piece of pine wood about 5.5×11 inches (click to view larger and look below for some in progress pics)
Here’s the latest on the painting:
Started an acrylic painting. Haven’t painted since school so this will be a bit of a challenge. Decided to do a painting of a couple of Moai’s, this is about halfway done.
I am working on some ideas for a 3 Dimensional representation of some of my tiki illustrations. Below are pics of a laser etched piece of basswood that features the tiki from my illustration DO NOT MOCK THE TIKI GOD! I am thinking about possibly using this as a fridge magnet or maybe making a larger piece that can hang as wall art. I’d love to receive some comments on this one! Here is the illustration (click to view larger):
And here are the prototypes (each piece is roughly 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide)
Brushed on some acrylic…

A bit more progress:
Tiki’s face is getting some detail now…
Hope to be finishing this one up soon! Possibly another week or so.

For years my art has been seen over at Zerostreet.com and I will continue to maintain that site, but since I have been producing so much tiki related pieces lately I decided to start up tikitower.com
Here you will find all my tiki/polynesian/surf related art. I like to think my tiki’s and my fez’d chimps are kinda unique, I hope you’ll agree.
Also available here will be my prints, postcards and handmade wood mounted prints.
