I noticed that Flounder got a plug on http://www.BoingBoing.net today. If you aren't familiar with that site, they are regularly one of the top 10 most popular sites on the net. A great source of interesting stuff. It should give our man a giant spike in his web site hits! Yeah Flounder!

Cool stuff! So, Flounder, how much of your material sold after the link from http://www.BoingBoing.net? Are such sites the uber-promotional tools we've been told they are?

Man oh man, what a day. I sold ten pieces, and have about ten more commisions. I didn't paint a lick today, just answered emails one after the other.

At the same time I'm also painting three burlap paintings for a new tiki bar, and doing tiki playing cards for a game company. I think I need an apprentice.

Oh yea and I'm trying to finish my tiki/robot series.

Need more coffee! Much more.

Thanks for the thread Swanky


Hukilau got 12 hits from FlounderArt.com today, so you must have gotten some serious traffic. That beats the Tiki Farm hits.

Damn Swanky, does this mean I'm famous yet?

Congratulations Flounder!!!

But pace yerself son!!!!

Don't burn out, I want to be able to know I can get a few more pieces out of ya when the time comes...

Best wishes for your success continuing!

NICE! Guess that lunar eclipse liked you!

Thanks everyone! Am I famous now? If everyone starts saying I'm famous well then I'm famous, right? Come on help me out and lie a little.

Seriously thanks everyone.


Even though you can't associate with us now from your lofty throne of fame, we still remember you fondly and are proud.

Very cool, Flounder -

What a great site, too.
Check out this page on Ukes:


TikiKing is linked there, as well as a few other familiar names.

You're already famous for leaving your wife stranded amongst strangers, while perching yourself on a bamboo barstool.


FYI, you can get puzzles made of any picture at most film developing places, should you have the desire.

I haven't been able to access that boingboing site. I keep getting the "can't find server" page. How many friends do you have trying to check out the page?

Congrats Flounder! I'm glad to see your success and I'm glad to soon be the proud owner of my 3rd piece from you. Everyone that has checked out the site - I commissioned Flounder to do the Tiki Jo from the matchbook that I have. As soon as I get it framed and my bar in place I'll post pictures.

Thanks for all the support, I'll try to make you all proud.
