He does retro artwork as well and has become huge...especially in the Los Angeles area, doing work for Disney (lately it was retro Disneyland Tiki Room stuff). I'll have to look into Kevin Dart though.

Very cool and you've gmv for sure.



I know Shag.

Kevin Dart is relatively new on the scene, but within two years he's already worked with Pixar, Laika, and seems to be creating a new show for Disney TV. Also I think he already has a book out or something. And he's my new hero.

Re: eventide



Wow, thanks for the votes, everyone. I always wanted to do a sunset like this with sea grasses- I have a similar photo hanging in my dining room which I took when I was in college. Unfortunately, the negative was ruined.

Re: Martini Luau



My original design had text, because I didn't see the big, bold "No text this week" at the bottom of the instructions. D'oh! So, this is the completely re-vamped version, and I gotta say, I'm as happy with this as I was with my Cookies & Milk design from 2 weeks ago!

Extra bonus, because my 82 yr old mother-in-law said she'd wear it if it came in her size. Hee!

umm, sorry but can some one explain how this is not a copy of, I don't know, every hawaiian shirt ever made?

This is great. The design looks fantastic at first glance and gets better as you look at the details - I love that water.

Boy he looks really unhappy! I tried my hand at a tiki god, but couldn't get it to look right, you did a great job, especially just over your lunch break! gmv

Re: Liquid Hibiscus



Don't sweat it folks- it will probably get rejected. Not because it's uninspired, etc., but because similar shirts already exist...

Whoa that's awesome.
I'm surprised I hadn't heard of Dart until just now...especially in knowing he was once affiliated with Disney/Pixar. I'm all over the animation scene and would like to make a career out of it.

Thanks for the info. and best of luck to you in this derby. It's definitely deserving of being in the fog. Good luck & take care.

This is great Loop! I love the fire in the pigs eyes and the forks that the people are holding. It just pulls it all together for me.

Thank you for all your nice compliments and for your votes. I'm glad you guys think it's funny. I was worried how I could imply all of the luau party without making it too complicated, but fortunately the silhouettes weren't too hard.

Re: Liquid Hibiscus



For some reason copy and pasting into a pattern is getting votes...2nd time seen this style and it got same votes off the start...maybe I'll try this next time. If it gets the votes, then something has to be done right.

Re: Houndstiki Pattern



Kinda needs to be the shape of a tiki idol too...the giant rectangle of art isn't very attractive.
