Here is a new direction I am exploring. My art always lent itself to the Tiki culture so I finally gave it a shot.
I decided to leave out my pumpkins without eliminating a dark edge to invite a more diverse demographic to my art. I hope you like.
Thank you!

Nice artwork and a bit of haunted tiki there. Love the bat carving in the tiki god and your use of color. Thinking I'm seeing skulls at the base as well. You definitely have got the tiki look down. BTW do you post over at Tikicentral.com? Sure you would get lots of mahalo for your work there among their talented tiki folk.

Mainly traditional kind of tiki being made there but I have found some possible halloween fans there as well. One did a huge foam carved tiki god, many feet high, with flames or hot lava in it's mouth. Totally loved for my island halloween theme. Another thing I remember was years ago I saw that someone said they bought these stackable purple and blue plastic tiki god flaming lanterns from Big Lots. They disassembled them and repainted. Looked great. I was able to find a bunch of them at BL then on summer clearance. They aren't big on repurposing BL items like we are here, but if you are planning an island haunt you can find some great ideas to springboard off of to complete your setting.

Oh I could go on for DAYS! A lot of the sites aren't exactly traditional either. The husband needs an intervention on the tiki mug collection but then I look at my rubbermaid bins full of Halloween stuff & just shut up. One good thing is he actually uses the mugs.

Hello
Here is what I have that I have prepped for my booth at Comic-Con, San Diego this coming July.
2 - 16 x 20 framed (triple matted one w/Tiki themed frame, other with nice woodsy frame. $375.00 each
4 - 11 x 14 framed with thin single mat and Tiki themed frame. $100.00 each
10 - 8 x 10.5 matted to 11 x 14. Comes in clear envelope. $29.95 each
10 - 4.5 x 6.5 matted to 8 x 10. Comes in clear envelope. $15.00 each

If you are interested in a print, any size and NOT MATTED, give me the size and I will quote you a price.

If you are interested in any of the framed pieces I can send you pictures to see the frame and matting. The shipping in US for the framed pieces usually run around $30.

As far as color and detail goes. Seeing is believing. You will not be disappointed.
All are signed by the artist too. (me)

Thank you for your interest in my work!!!

Just saw this thread and I am in awe! I was wondering how I was going to incorporate my halloween obsession with my new "tropical" master bedroom. This is the answer!
