Tiki Toons Show at Van Eaton Galleries

Mahalo! Tiki culture is experiencing a bit of an upswing again in my particular art world. I am entered in TWO shows with a Polynesian theme. The first starts tonight at the Van Eaton Animation Gallery in Sherman Oaks, CA. Artists are required to create art featuring any animated character, naturally, in a Tiki setting. Here is my entry entitled, “Paradise De Vil”.

Yes, those are dog collars she is wearing for bracelets. I don’t know what is wrong with me.. 🙂

Daenerys and Elliot

“Game of Thrones” is BACK! YAHOOO!

Okay, confession time here. I have actually never seen an episode of HBO’s “Game of Thrones”. However, every friend I have ever had swears up and down that it is pure genius. One of those lovely friends has lent us the previous three seasons and at some point in the near future, we will join the cult. For now though, the premier of the 4th season inspired me to paint up a little something silly. In my scenario, The Walt Disney Company has acquired HBO and has implemented a plan to insert the studio’s stable of beloved characters into the cable net’s original programming. Since “GoT” has a lady in it who raises Dragons, I thought maybe this would happen… Daenerys and Elliot!

Sure, it’s silly, but just imagine the rides at Disneyland that would follow!
