So here is a long awaited entry for the 7-Star Challenge (and yes, Mike. My website counts as an entry so there – 😛 *).
This piece is actually a digital recreation of a wood carving by Stanley Stubenberg from the 1950’s. I figure I would go back to basics, and start to play around with works that inspire me.Since I am a budding Tiki enthusiast, I felt it appropriate to move my design towards what I know.
I have been re-reading a great book by Sven Kirsten who is one of the most noted authorities on Tiki Culture and Polynesia Pop, and yes they have authorities on the subject so we are legit. Tiki Modern. The book is a great collection of some of the best work done during the Tiki hey day in the 50’s and 60’s, from the emergence of Tiki Bars to the founding of Witco.
As I said before, this week’s entry is a recreation of a wood carving as an exercise in color.
