One shot marker on cardboard, no tracing with pencil. I like it because it looks spontaneous, it was made that way.

:lol:
That's the Spirit!
Keep playing and experimenting and doodling!
That's where the creative energy is at it's most primal
and usually where the best ideas come from!
When i first REALLY got into Tiki
i would do studies from books
of different styles/cultures/objects...
That will help establish a base to work from
a foundation...
Anywhooos...
Keep posting these
They may inspire someone else
to start creating as well!

Zeta - I really dig your cardboard piece. The Sticker Graffiti style of it is something I haven't seen before... and I really like that!

JAJAJA!
Now THAT is some eloquent and positive feedback Tikipug! (or whatever your nick is) Why does my "work" affects you so much? I would say you do give a shit because you took the time to say so!
Maybe you just "don't get it" and that's why it makes you nervous... In case you want to know, my 2010 sweep was a "happening" but maybe those are concepts to abstract and sophisticated for some people like you know who...
Mahalo! give me anything but indifference! :D

Gracias Liloti! I like to share the doodles I enjoyed doing, and if you enjoy them too, then that makes me enjoy them even more and to want to create some more and better and...


"Postcard from the inside of my brain"
something
something else
Some year

Before finding tikicentral.
Moais represented mystery back then and not so much tiki bars. Moais have this ambivalent bizarre quality that fits them in the alien pop and mysterie subcultures. What I call a "slam in your face" image.
I love Moais since I was a kid. They are so weird and cool. Difficult to define.

Moais are quite mysterious Zeta!
It's great when objects have multiple layers/meanings to them.
Sadly, a lot of art is lacking today in that
type of thought and mystery...
Keep on Truckin,Zeta!
