Faster than Disaster.
A man came up to me at an art show on Maui and said he wanted to show me pictures of his baby. I thought I was going to see baby pictures, but they were photos of his hot rod. He’d built it from the ground up. I knew I had to paint it, and it became “Faster Than Disaster”. Unfortunately, every time I go over to Maui he has taken it apart again and I’ve yet to ride in it.
Tales from the Tiki Lounge:
A while back I had an art show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in LA. I painted 12 pieces and then I scanned them into a computer - re-worked then photoshop and then printed them out as covers to a comic magazine that “never-was” titled “Tales from the Tiki Lounge”. I had a lot of fun creating these covers and many an art patron asked me when and where the issues of “Tales from the Tiki Lounge” were for sale. “Well,” I would smirk, “They were sold at the date on the cover; during the year of 1959 - the year that Hawaii became a state.” Then they’d give me a funny look. Eventually they would drift away, look at the show some more, and walk back to me with a big smile. “Oh, now I get it! But, can I get an art print of the cover for October?”
