This is a drawing of Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room birds and one of the little tiki's that drop from the tree in the waiting area behind the Dole Whip stand.
This illustration is a blend of tiki culture and retro sci-fi. The drink, the Lunar Ambrosia, is blended and features glowing ice cubes for effect.
I've always been a fan of the villainous space queens in 50's sci-fi. They're constantly ordering people to their deaths while lamenting the resourcefulness of the story's hero. A hero that they secretly love...
Michael Cohen has been in the news a lot lately. His behavior on behalf of President Trump is EVERYTHING people should dislike about political corruption. An admitted "money funnel", this "fixer" appears to pay off porn stars while accepting huge sums of money from entities in the US and abroad.
This illustration was inspired by a tiki mug that I bought from House of Tabu. I began to imagine how the cracks and crevices a traditional wooden tiki might blend into the gnarled wrinkles of a mummy. That got me thinking about how trees in the high desert seem to grow out of rocks with tough, finger like, roots.
Anyway, this drawing is named for the drink I came up with to fill the mug I bought. Ancient Egypt was known for beer. I decided to concoct a tiki-beer-coctail. I think that it worked pretty well.
The most prolific liar in American presidential history, Donald Trump's lie count is 300O lies and climbing. Here are some of his greatest hits.
For too many Americans, Trump's lies are easy to fall for. Citizens of this country gleefully sold out any minority groups that Trump said were standing between them and his plan to Make America Great again. This kind of ethicaly bankrupt deal with the devil has no good outcome. At best, 30% of the US will be ashamed of themselves. At worst, 60% of the US will unhappily live under the rule of a "democratically" elected Russian stooge of an autocrat.
This illustration is based on my version of Don the Beachcomber's original recipe. The tiki is based upon petroglyphs I photographed on the Big Island, Vintage masks and the voodoo version of zombies.
This is a classic blended drink from Don The Beachcomber. It's usually a reasonably mild drink (by tiki drink standards). Mine gets a significant kick from the very strong homemade liqueur I make.
A new series of illustrations inspired by some of my favorite tiki drinks. The recipe is basically from Beach Bum Berry's book. The tiki figure is based on a petroglyph I photographed on the Big Island.

After years of loudly judging everyone else... evangelical Christians elect this guy? They love every word out of this guy's mouth? Because he says God every so often and promised to protect assault rifles? Christian assault rifles?
Another mass shooting, another call of calm indifference.
Weasel? Lackey? Stooge? Traitor?
See no evil. Hear no evil. Give no fucks.
"I call on the Congress to empower every cabinet secretary with the authority to reward good workers — and to remove federal employees who undermine the public trust or fail the American people"
Because, yeah, there is no way that would ever be abused.
I'm a huge fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Film Crew, Cinematic Titanic, Rifftrax and just about anything else the various employees of the Gizmonic Institute have done. I missed the Mads Tour when it was in San Francisco. I would have love to have seen them. Frank Conniff and Trace Beaulieu were both great in the Cinematic Titanic Live & MST3K Reunion shows.
I always enjoyed the weird manic vs calm thing going on in Deep 13. Frank played it cool right up to (and sometimes past) the moment when Dr. Forrester was ready to actually kill him. Anyway, I tried to capture some of that in this illustration.
