  • Every Dog Has His Best Day Ever

    “Every Dog Has His Best Day Ever” is centered around the Haunted Mansions biggest underdog.  The piece depicts two of the only living characters in the whole ride, which are the Caretaker and his dog Bones.  Being dog lovers, every time my wife and I go on the ride we always talk about how we wish we could throw that poor dog a turkey leg or churro to help fatten him up! So I decided what better time than the Haunted Mansions 50th Anniversary to give this dog his best day ever.  Bones is shown standing on a pile of Disney snacks with a turkey leg in his mouth, Mickey Ears on his head, and a Magic Band around his leg.  His owner looks on astounded and is in disbelief that he has left the Mansion and is out cruising the park!

    The painting is made with acrylic on a mounted Birch panel and measures 12.5″x15″x1.5″ and is ready to hang.

  • Pu’uhonua O Honaunau

    ,

    I painted this tiki gods piece as a submission into the Maui Arts and Cultural Center Hawaii National Parks Centennial 2016.  The site of Pu’uhonua O Hanaunau is a unique blend of natural and cultural resources where the idyllic Hawaiian landscape is made sacred by human influence.  The power of the site is emphasized in the painting through bold line work and exaggerated colors that highlight the significance of this historic place.  The frame is constructed to enhance the painting in the same way that the structural elements of Pu’uhonua O Hanaunau enhance the site.

    The original paining is painted with acrylic and enamel on birch panel and measures 48″x20″.  The frame is custom built from black walnut and is enhanced with rope details bringing the total size to 34″x61″.

  • Hell or High Water

    , , ,

    Hell or High Water is a painting that shows a Day of the Dead kraken attacking a skeleton pirate ship.  Skeleton pirates scramble to stay afloat by hugging barrels of rum, holding debris, and struggle to keep treasure from sinking.  Meanwhile the Kraken deploys her tentacles to crush their ship’s hull and snap its masts.  This unique tall tale enhanced by eerie fog is a great piece for any ocean enthusiast, one eyed pirate, peg leg polisher, or hardcore ocean art collector!

  • Boneyard

    , , ,

    The title “Boneyard” is a term used by surfers to describe the impact zone of a wave that breaks over reef in very shallow water.  It is a place where you don’t want to be caught off guard and if you are, you could easily end up a skeleton stuck to the ocean floor.

    Boneyard fuses Mexican Day of the Dead iconography with Hawaiian culture and signifies the similarities these two cultures share through their geographic location and relationship with the ocean.

    This painting was done with acrylic, ink, and enamel on a 15″x24″ birch panel.  The frame is custom built from the endemic Koa tree of Hawaii and is embellished with brass tacks and rope details.  Koa is a very hard wood and in the Hawaiian language it means brave, bold, fearless, or warrior.  With the frame, the total measurements are 30″x36.5″

  • Kaan Took

  • Variant Sketch Cover of Pineapple Man

    ,

    This is my first and possibly only Variant Sketch Cover I will do.  I drew this design during HawaiiCon this year while at my booth.  I was originally going to draw a shark tooth paddle style weapon on this cover then decided to read the comic.  After reading the book I decided to change my design to make it reflect the story better.  This blank issue was given to me by author, artist, and creator of PineappleMan, Sam Campos.  I used Micron pens and Copic markers to finish the design.

  • Sergeant Tiki

    I’m calling this one “Sergeant Tiki” and it is a salute to how returning soldiers, from the South Pacific, introduced tiki culture to Americans after WWII. Many of these vets brought home tropical souvenirs and told great stories of their adventures from this far away paradise. “Sergeant Tiki” also reflects my own personal experience in the army, as well as my residence in Hawai’i. I spent 4 1/2 years in the military and was stationed in a small Bavarian town in Germany called Kitzingen. I later got deployed to Macedonia and Kosovo (the Disneyland of Europe) and spent about 8 months there. Now that I teach art here in Hawai’i, I make it a point to tell my students about my service and deployment, and I always get the same question: “Did you kill anyone?” And since I want to seem like a tough guy, I usually respond with, “I’m not allowed to talk about that”. Truth be told when my dad asked me, “What did you do in the Army son?” I answered with one word, “HIDE!” So Sergeant Tiki really encompasses the kind of soldier I was, I wanted to appear tough, but honestly I just wanted to sit on the beach and drink Mai Tais while I threw Pineapples at my commanders.

    This painting was made with acrylic on birch panel and measures 5″x7″.  It comes in a rustic wood frame bringing the total size to 11.5″x9.5″.

  • Ouroboros Tiki Mug

    This piece was made during the 9th annual Mai Tai Festival at the Royal Kona Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Painted with many layers of acrylic on birch panel, “Ourobors Tiki” comes in a custom frame.  The frame is embellished with hand-carved tiki corners and is stained a rich blue color.  The painting measures 8″x10″ and the frame brings the total size to 14.5″x12″.

    This piece was painted with acrylic and the background was made to look like a treasure map.  The original painting is on an oval cut piece of birch and measures 20″x14″.  It comes in a gilded ornate frame that you would expect to see in the Captain’s Cabin on a swashbuckling Pirate Ship!
