I love this! The guy peaking out behind the hut is great.

Too bad it's on cream. Ugh cream.

I am SO excited about this design. Not only does it have KLS involvement, but it is pink and orange (my favorite colors) - oh, with red a close third - AND there are hibiscus in it.

I can only hope that everyone else loves it as much as I do!!



Thanks Molli. I have to say Toe had 100% control over the coloring of the design and he did a fabulous job. I think he was able to get a retro-Hawaii feel with the colors. I was blown away when he sent the picture to me late last night.

In case it's not totally apparent, the Luau girl is resting on blades of grass like a grass skirt. She's wrapped in a Hawaiian dress and the backdrop is supposed to represent a large clamshell. Hibscus-esque petals were placed behind here almost to make her look like a fairy. There are other details as well, but probably don't need explanation.

Thanks again for the vote. I'm excited to see what Toe does with the other sketch. Can hardly wait!

She looks like a spy in an old movie - that classic, nonplussed "whatever, you're going to die now" look.
I love it.

It is cool, kind of reminds me of this laughing squid ad, but if the squid was underwater.

I see someone's already out googling for Tiki squids and octopi. Maybe you can get my entry rejected since it's so obviously a ripoff of that obscure ad... <sigh>

EDIT: Sorry to sound bitter. Just been a while seen I've been googled for like-images I guess. Forgot what it was like.
